It's awesome to have a setup that everyone loves. This kid seat from Workcycles is made to work with their amazingly sturdy Fr8 and Gr8 bikes. It just fits. I've got their frame-mounted front rack and the kid seat attaches to that and has special foot rests. The bike is so sturdy that it hardly notices when there's a 40 pound kid, two saddle bags, and a front rack full of supplies for going to the beach. It can handle it all.
Last weekend I made a trip down to the Toronto Bike Show. This bike show is more about people getting discounts on last year's models than about showing innovation in active transportation. Regardless, some innovation still shines through. I got to take a few crappy photos of these plus ride a handful.
