I've recently moved from taking my son to nursery in a trailer to taking him in a child seat on the back of my bike. As my rack normally has panniers attached, I've got a couple of lowrider front racks which I move them to while the seat is on my rack. I found riding with my son in the child seat fairly easy - the biggest thing to remember not to do is to stand up on the pedals. However, I do find having my panniers on the front racks really weird - it completely changes the handling of the bike. I wouldn't say it's unstable, but it's definitely sluggish. I also get the impression that the steering is a lot slower to respond when I shift my weight when steering. I'm new to all this front-rack stuff. Does anyone have any pearls of wisdom about riding with them? Cheers!
