The rear ones let the kid do more of his own thing, and I think they're bigger.
J i m s t e r said:I'd go with a rear because the last thing you want is them interfering with control. My friends all seem to do big distances with such setups and haven't reported the ride being unstable.
dukeofdelridge said:Yeah my brother puts his kids in a rear seat and little guy will fall asleep back there. Definitely seem a little more long-ride-practical. But those iBerts are just so rad to me. I like the idea of the kid looking over the front of the bike, soaking in controls and the general vibe. I don't have children.
J i m s t e r said:I mean, you're not going to be doing rad air, 360s or backflips with the kids onboard.

duke - I am pretty jelly of your SeratoBike. TraktorBike maybe?
