to Kiyomi's question:
We were able to get our boy into the front seat ibert at about nine months. The contoured seating helped support him... much more than a burley bike trailer that was a disaster early on. It's true the ibert won't fit on every bike. Your front stem/handlebars need to rise high enough above your top tube so the bracket won't rub your frame. It worked on my old mountain bike, but not my everyday bike with a touring/road frame. By buying an extra brace the ibert wouldn't be too hard to move from bike to bike.
to what we ride and where:
To the first question, we ride our son liam in an ibert and burley trailer, he's been riding since about nine months till now, 19mos. We ride from the inner mission and right night he's anxious to get going to GG park. Got to run

I have a 9 month old daughter and we are trying to decide what kind of baby carrier to get once she fits in a helmet. I like the front seats, but don't think it will work with my bike, so am not sure whether to get a rear seat or a trailer. How do you carry stuff when using a rear seat? Also, is it practical to move a seat to different bikes, or is it a hassle?
