Electra Townie and Bell Cocoon seat install, NEED HELP...

I just got a Electra Townie 8i with the balloon (Fat Frank) tires on it. I also have a Bell Cocoon child seat that mounts to the rear of the bike and I cannot figure out how to get this seat installed on the bike. The seat mount works fine, however I am having trouble with the U Shaped Bar/bracket that attaches to the rear frame of the bike. We have had this seat installed on our previous bike (Schwinn), and the seat installed without problems. But now I am trying to put it on the townie and it seems like the U shaped bar will not even reach the bike assembly. Any ideas? I tried messing with the height of the seat and adjusting it, but I cannot seem to get the rear bracket close enough to attach. ???
