    From a review of the Madsen:
    Davey Oil pointed out not long ago that cities have certain family-bike personalities and he was dead on. Seattle has Madsens and Surly Big Dummies (at least 5 of each at the Seattle Cargo Bike Roll Call). Portland has child trailers, trailer-bikes, and box bikes: Bakfiets and Bullitt and Metrofiets. San Francisco has commuter bikes with child seats, trailer-bikes, family tandems, Xtracycles (even an Xtracycled family tandem), and in the last year, a spate of Yuba Mundos and elMundos. But you almost never see child trailers here.
    What family-bike personality does our area have? I see a fair number of front and back bike seats, and trailers out and about...

    DIY rain canopies for bike seats!

    http://everydayadventurers.com/2011/...the-peapod-lt/ (for rear-mounted seat. This post is specific to the PeaPod, but the technique is easily adaptable to other types of seat, especially the Yepp.)

    http://www.tinyhelmetsbigbikes.com/1.../rain-day.html (shows the same concept on a PeaPod rear-mounted seat AND a Yepp front-mounted seat)
