I'm not sure this exists but I want a bike where I can fit a baby seat on for DD and a trailer of some description that DS has to peddle. I prefer the kids behind me so I have a better view of traffic when I'm taking corners and I'm short so I don't want to be trying to peer over their heads to see what's going on. I've tried googling but most just aren't right or unavailable in Australia.
I do like this
but I guess that is something I won't be able to use until DD is at least 3 and can be trusted not to just jump off the bike.

thanks I can't get any of the pictures to load on the taga site.
The other style trailers/tag-alongs aren't quite right either, a lot of them need to be attached where a rear baby seat goes, I may have to go with a front fitting baby seat but I really don't want to.
Currently I have a bike with a rear fitted baby seat and a trailer but DS is just too heavy and it catches too much wind meaning it's often faster to walk and I've pretty much given up riding. The other option I'm looking at is an electric bike and keep my current trailer/baby seat combo.

I would contact Bicycle Victoria (or equivalent) or a cycling club.

Ah thanks Gudrun! wouldn't have thought of that
that looks very interesting duffy I think it could be what I'm after, I prefer 2 wheels at the back for stability (kids are very wiggly) but we might be able to overcome that.
