    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?

    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.
