4 Family Tested Front-Mounted Baby Bike Carriers
There isn't research to confirm whether front or rear-mounted seats are safer, says Safe Kids Canada. But with a front-mounted model you can see and talk to your child, and because she is is seated in the middle of the bike, it's easier to get on and off steadily. (However, a front-mounted carrier can make steering difficult or interfere with pedaling.) Strap a sack of potatoes into the seat to mimic your child's weight and test out a range of carriers before you buy.
