My lad will soon be too heavy for his Yepp Mini front seat so I need to get set up for the next step. I currently commute on an old Rockhopper with a pannier rack for my bag (spare tube, pump, lunch, work clothes) and the Yepp Mini up front, dropping The Boy and his seat off at daycare on the way. If I fit a rear seat, however, it seems like it will prevent me from mounting the pannier onto the rack.
I could use a rucksack but will it sit right in his face? Anyone ride with this set-up? I know it'll depend on the model of seat and rucksack as to how 'in his face' the bag is.
I'm also looking at other options... Number one choice would be a Kona Ute, Yuba Mundo or similar, but getting that past the CFO might be tricky. An Xtracycle Free Radical is probably the next best thing, but again they're not cheap.
Anyone ride with a rear seat and backpack? How do you find it? Or has anyone got any other tips/bright ideas?
