    What happened to the Britax bike seat?

    Anyone know? It hasn't been available for a while now on Amazon. I've been using a Topeak but had to take the rack off to be able to use a trail-a-bike and if the Britax design works on my bike I think it might work around that (not to be able to use both at the same time but to be able to use either one depending on which kid I am with without having to use tools and remove and re-install something)

    Hmmmm. Well I may have found an answer. Thule makes a baby seat that is pretty much identical. So either Thule bought the Britax design or it's another case of Britax copying someone else's design and being told to cease and desist?

    Sorry I don't know anything about the Britax bike seat, but have you looked at any of the Peg Perego ones? I saw an ad recently that they have a couple new ones but am not sure on their attachments to the adult bike.

    Is a front attached seat an option? I love our Yepp Mini! The Yepp Maxi attaches to the rear, but is pricey.

    I'm not very keen on the idea of a front mount... I'm not sure it would fit on my bike, and they tend to have lower backs and my kid often falls asleep back there. (the rear mount ones also tend to hold a bigger kid)
