Yepp Mini vs Bobike Mini
 
Hey everyone! Looking for some opinions on the Yepp mini vs the Bobike mini. It would be going on the front of a Yuba Mundo and carrying my 28lb son. :)

Also, do you think the windshield would be a good investment?

Hmmm let's try another avenue....

What is your favorite front mounted child seat?

wouldnt Yuba's rear load area be better for the seat mount?

though Dutch Mothers rode bikes for up to 3 children on them , until the Bakfiets
with the big cargo /child area in between the bars and the front wheel became, so popular.

with the strong Gales off the North Sea the windshield was used . but not every time.

I've considered it but with both kids I would need to have the seat at the very back and when my daughter is not with us it would leave a large gap between him and I and I don't want the weight distribution to be off. And I'd also like him closer so I can tend to him easier.

At a handicap on matching experiences with your specific bike choice and situation

old guy , no children but as a mechanic , in the shop I saw a Topeak child carrier TopeakŪ Cycling Accessories ? Products - Child Carrier > Child Carrier and Racks

which is quickly removed from a particular rear rack in the set .. you seem to be thinking the seats need a rigidly permanent placement..

thought arises if an adapter can be created to fit 2 of those which either or both could be removed.

one child, just fit that one seat .. near the front ..

myself , a bike trailer is immanently handy childless or
the kinder having a situation where they are grown past fitting or willing to sit in one.

were you at a bike shop like the Local Here the staff would be willing to help you sort out some of the ways to set up a non traditional plug and play sort of installation..

just cant project solutions fully formed , being a mechanical Improviser ..

seeing the elements involved, 1st hand and Ideas come up.
