Bike seat for a kid -- anything that will clamp onto a road bike?
I'm looking for a bike seat to attach to a road bike (titanium / carbon frame).
Ideally looking for something where I could install a bracket to my frame, and i could clip the seat on / off to the bracket.
I'm looking at the Yepp mini but I'm thinking with the drop bars on my bike it wouldn't work. Do any of you guys know a good bike seat for a 1 year old baby? Something that would install behind the seat? Any help would be much appreciated.
I live in NYC so I usually have good access to all that nice Dutch and European gear.
good spot but short life span
Excellent solution... for a very light kid and /or for a short life span: my two where +-12 kg at their first year, so if his baby is an year old now this solution will last him only for a couple of months. As a very minded-budget rider, I prefer a complete upgradable solution wich may last for years. A Dahon ( I name dahon because I know it, but it could be almost any folding 20") plus a traveler rack is useful for carrying a one year old.. a three years old...a five years old... and an 8/10 years old in a plain seat... until they are able to ride along with you their own bikes.

If he buys the brompton/bobike combo he will have the same trouble he has now but in three months. Unless he has a new baby coming it's late for this. (And then he has to think about carrying the two kids...not very realistc for day to day rides in a brompton).
The trailer solution for a city or a urban with "normal" car drivers is crazy for me, I'd never, ever, carry my kids there. Only in dedicated paths with no car road sharing at ANY point. And he living in an apartment seems to have to face cars just out of his door.
