Do any of the bikes come with kids' seats? Our daughter would be 9 months old at the time. Thank you, Isabelle

Sorry I just saw this. As of now we do not due to space and liability and not have bikes that are really set up for this. We are looking to add the maybe next year 2018.

We are visiting Austin from Vermont. Our bike riding experience is long winding country roods with little or no traffic. Is the traffic an issue, especially for someone not accustomed to riding in city traffic?
