Re: Interested in snapdeck kid seats?
- A thought that came up is regarding materials and cost.
This price is with utilizing very high quality (read: expensive)
marine plywood. What this really buys you is being able to leave this
thing parked outside year round without too much concern for the wood
Now I personally don't leave ours parked outside except when on
errands and we throw our rain cover on if the weather looks bad.
Honestly between the urethane coating used and decent treatment of the
seat setup its probably not all that necessary, the benefit of using a
standard high quality veneered plywood would be that it would bring
the cost down by around 30-40 dollars.
If this of interest to folks let me know.
- The general public derives their sense of risk from the news media and "common sense".
Unfortunately, neither is a reliable source of information.

Many people tell me they will not ride their bikes because it is
I've found that many (most?) people do not understand the difference
between "dangerous," "vulnerable" and "risk."
While cyclists are indeed quite vulnerable, the risk of being harmed
while cycling is quite low if the cyclist rides competently, maintains
his/her machine properly, and obeys the rules of the road.
I find myself getting less and less impressed with the intelligence of
my fellow Americans as the years go by. They know far more about
Britney Spears than about things that matter.
