    Also, a concern about potentially electrifying the Kona Africa is that it is an aluminum frame. Most of the electric conversion sellers strong urge against putting a hub motor on an aluminum fork...

    In reference to your comment about "at the expense of the more traditional bike experience", my friend has had a Bike Friday Haul-a-Day since July and has said that it can be the one bike that...

    Have you looked at the Bike Friday Haul-a-Day? It's very lightweight (starts at 33 lbs) with a very low step-over due to the small wheels:

    The longer wheelbase of the long-tail really does make a difference, as does the typically heavier weight of the bike. I have a Workcycles Fr8 (which is really a mid-tail in terms of wheelbase) and...

    To clarify, the original poster already has a longtail cargo bike with a sturdy welded on rack. Here's a link to pictures the bike without seats: Busybike - Velonom overview The poster is looking...

    cplager A trail-a-bike won't work with a longtail, unless you customize a mount for a Burley Piccolo or Roland add+bike, which is theoretically possible, but if you're going to that level of effort,...

    ​If your 30% off coupon is still good, you might take a look at the Belelli rabbit front seat. It is good up to 35lbs and a front seat would allow you to take both kids and have your panniers. It's a...

    Also, I'm not sure if they've changed the rules, but we were able to apply one of the periodic 20% off REI coupons to buy our WeeHoo iGo Pro.

    You'll have to figure out what works for your particular circumstances, but having done both, I would much rather pull my 6-year old on the Kazoo than my 4 year old on the WeeHoo. The Kazoo is about...

    I would skip the WeeHoo and just get a rear bike seat for your 2-year old (or even a front seat like the Bobike Mini or Yepp Mini if she's still pretty small). By the time she would outgrow a rear...

    I'm surprised to hear that you've had trouble contacting Islabike. I've called them three or four times and always gotten a live voice on the phone. We love our Beinn 20. They are a pretty compact...

    Also, based on everything I've read, a bolt-on Xtracycle is going feel very "flexy" with a 7.5 year old on the back (weight+high center of gravity=unstable ride).

    Do you think she will outgrow her 20" bike any time soon? If not, I'd suggest looking at either a Trail Angel (Trail Angel Bike Tow System InsideLineHobbies.com, miniz, mini-z, kyosho, PN racing,...

    What size are you looking for and what features? I second the Islabikes recommendation--we have the 20" Beinn small for our daughter and it's great. It weighs in a 17.6 lbs stock, but we've added the...

    I'm not sure where you are seeing the 1.1 inch measurement. From the Amazon listing for the adapter:

    The Yepp Mini should be compatible with any quill stem. My Fr8 bike, which has incredibly beefy tubing everywhere else, has a quill stem that can accommodate the Yepp Mini and the Bobike Mini. Have...

    A couple of other general comments: (1) since you're on the shorter side, I would look for a bike where the handlebars sweep back toward you and that's designed for an "upright" ride. If you have to...

    I'm guessing that you are looking at bikes that have a "threadless headset" rather than a "quill stem." The standard Yepp Mini adapter is meant to go on a quill stem. If you want to put it on a...

    Kona is bringing the MinUte back for 2015, with some improvements: hydraulic disc brakes, center-stand and waterproof panniers stock. Unfortunately, the MSRP is going up as well, to $1400.

    My son is 41" with a 17.5" inseam and he still has plenty of room to grow on the 12" Hot Rock. It's been a good starter bike for him. He's able to maneuver it pretty well, definitely better than the...

    Determining when it will be outgrown will also depend on the geometry of your bike, namely: (1) how much knee room your child has based on your handlebar shape and the seat-mounting height; and (2)...

    Like the iBert, I think the WeeRide is likely to be outgrown by height fairly quickly, even though it has a high weight limit. It also may not install easily on your bike. That's actually the first...

    The cargo rack on the Minute or Boda Boda will have a much higher weight capacity than any add-on rack you will find for a "standard" bike.

    The Boda Boda is rated for 220 lbs of cargo. The MinUte...
