You need to add a skirt guard to this to stopp the passenger's feet getting into the wheel. Happened to a friend of mine when they stopped at a junction, and when he pulled away the passenger ended up with a broken ankle.

You didn't specify what model/make the rack is. I've been looking for one like that and not had much luck. Also how did you get on with the pegs? I asked my local Bike mech about that and he just said that it couldn't be done safely. I'm tempted to try anyway. Though my own child is getting rather big now ( 9 years old )

We use the JANDD Expedition Rack on all of our bikes and have been carrying kids on them for years. The Expedition is a few inches longer than other racks. I still sometimes carry my older daughter who is almost 17 and as tall as me. We used to carry two kids when they were a bit younger. My daughters even carry each other on their racks. We don't have pads or footpegs, but I am finally having a friend make a pad and I just got a couple of parts from a wheel chair to make great retractable footpegs.
