    multi-use adaptable commuter compatible with trailers and **front** kid seat?

    Okay, final update: We got to try kid in the back and he was happy enough, so we're going to accept that if necessary. And we decided to not compromise the overall experience of riding, so we got a Giant Explore E+ from a local shop. With a step-through frame option, it's everything in terms of...

    Ariel Rider M Class Review

    Would it work to put a front-kid-seat on this? Such as https://mac-ride.com https://kidsrideshotgun.com or https://dolittle.co.nz ?? All three of those would clearly work on this excellent double-bar frame, and they have (or can be set up to have) just enough width to probably avoid the...

    multi-use adaptable commuter compatible with trailers and **front** kid seat?

    So, most of the front-seat things could be an issue with the sort of bike that has a wider battery that's in the center of the frame. The seats have footrests that have to go around that and not be touching the battery. Are the wider batteries as in Ariel or Rad Power still less than 90mm wide?

    UPDATE: I'm dropping the dream of ARGO compatibility since I found usable front-seat options cheap! I edited my initial post to reflect where I'm at now. Would love help narrowing this down!

    multi-use adaptable commuter compatible with trailers and **front** kid seat?

    I just figured out that the worst hill (which I avoid taking) around here is probably 25% grade for a chunk. The preferred route up the elevation where I live is more like 7-10% grade most of the time, with sections less than that. It would be nice to be able to go on 15% grades ever, just...

    multi-use adaptable commuter compatible with trailers and **front** kid seat?

    Update: tried a used RadCity today that was pretty great, but decided that sharing with my wife requires a mid-step or step-through. I doubt the step-through RadCity will work with the ARGO since it has funny large frame around the pedals where the ARGO puts one of its attach-points. We also...

    multi-use adaptable commuter compatible with trailers and **front** kid seat?

    Okay, I've done my homework. Looking for advice. [UPDATE: I've changed my focus since initial post] My situation: I already bike on a commuter/fitness non-ebike and sometimes do 30+ mile round trip with my guitar (I teach music lessons) on my back and laptop in panniers and more. On the way...
