Companion Bike Seats
Riding with a friend is generally better than riding alone. Granted, it’s better if the second person can pedal on their own, but one of the more popular uses of longtail bikes is having the occassional passenger climb aboard. Companion Bike Seats is a small company making a reinforced rack that mounts to most bicycles and provides both a locking “trunk” and a seat for an adult passenger on short trips. Not recommended for long rides or rough roads, more for a short run up the road, the Companion Bike Seat is rated for up to 200 lbs, though your frame or axles may not be. If you’re interested in a lockable trunk rack that can take the sometimes passenger you can pre-order today at www.thebikeseat.com for $125.
