Son grew out of iBert seat.... now what?

Hi, am looking for a child seat for my DH's bike. I saw something really promising in Brooklyn a couple months ago, but can't remember the name of the company. It looked like a simple child seat, mounted on the front of an adult's bike frame, but it was not enclosed like the iBert is. It looked like it would fit a larger child. Anyone know anything about this?

We had a very bad experience with rear mounted seat, so we want to avoid those. A trailer is an option but that's a last resort for us. Any other suggestions in case I can't find that other seat?

Thanks in advance!
-Lindsay

It was likely a Zigo. I am not sure if this link will show you the results of my search. If not, you can do a search of the Rec and Family forum to find the threads.

I believe some folks that work for the company plus some of their customers are in that area. They have had get togethers in the past.

Bakfiets (sp?) is another cargo type cycle that others have used.
