    Child carrier between captain and stoker

    Would something like this work?:

    hoping to get the stoker bars just in front of the lap, so the legs can slide under..maybe reverse the bullhorns so they go around the seat.

    you never know til you try. The other possible point of interference is with the captain's legs at full extension. It'll be hard to predict - there are lots of variables - stoker stem length etc - hard to predict without trying it.

    We have an Ibert. It mounts to the stem so wouldn't work between the captain and stoker...the legs protrude forward too much I would think. I could try it I guess.

    Would not advise it for safety/fit reasons.
    Have you considered a trailer?
