    Rear deck for kids

    Ok, so I already have a Big Dummy. My kids love riding on it. However, it's also rather large. When we go on trips, I'd like to take my regular bike along. So having two kids, I thought we could put our Yepp seat on my wife's bike and have my 5 year old sit on a deck (like on the Big Dummy) on my bike. Any racks you guys recommend for this? She's only 35lbs. The Tubus Cargo rack supports up to 90lbs and sits a bit further back than other rear racks, so I thought that may be the best choice. I would have to build some sort of platform for her to sit on (probably wood) and move the cushion from the BD. Also would move the seat-post mount handlebar as well from the BD.

    Please chime in if you've used a similar set up. Thanks.

    Found a pretty cool (and expensive) rack called Caddy Rack from Cycle Trucks. But a bit too expensive for what I want...

    Why can't the 5 year old pedal her own bike?

    Any good quality rack will be sturdy enough to put a kid and simple seat on. The Copilot kid seats come with a Blackburn ex-1 rack and they are for kids up to 40 pounds.
