Have any of the bike providers on this site got any real child/cargo carrying bikes or bike adaptions pls? Did a search but nothing more recent than 2015 came up, and seemed to draw a blank.
Do providers think of fitting a seat with the std 40mm clamp when they spec these flared tubes?
Could the bike search tool be updated? Its showing bikes no longer in production & has no child/cargo option!
Come on guys.

How old is your child that you want to transport? I transport my disabled 7-year old son on my Woosh Big Bear in a rear child seat that I bought separately. The seat I use is the Yepp Junior child seat. Here is a link to it: https://www.athleteshop.co.uk/gmg-yepp-rear-seat-junior-budget-black. If your child is five or older it may be of interest to you. I used to use a tag-along trailer to transport my son, but I switched to the child seat about a year ago. In my opinion, a child seat is a lot safer than a tag-along.

workcycles-fr8-v8-1498562692.jpg WorkCycles FR8 is getting there, other makers could learn a lot, but still doesn't fold. "Call re electric option", usually means "if you have to ask, you can't afford it". Hehe. (approx $6000+)

Fold?

I didn't read that in your original post. Is that a must have requirement?

True, true, its just that it would be very handy if one lived somewhere with limited space and the Tern Node kept the main frame hinge, etc.
Some allow bike to be stood on end!

http://practicalcycles.com/ have some choices. The Italian one looks promising, and similar in principle to the Juiced Bikes offering:

I have experience of child seats, and they seem very high up and unstable. The 20 inch wheels keep the weight low.

Said to be available to special order, when they've found replacements for the Italjet components no longer in production. Hmm. 'TheSub9'
