Topic Wiki

I am trying to put a list together of the pro's and cons of the main bassinet strollers:

UppaBaby (UB)
PRO:
so easy to push
great basket (HUGE)
the bassinet is easy to take on and off
the wheels are easy to remove if need be
folds in a sinch
handle bar is great for tall and short people
the rumble seat lets the kid sit like a human being (not slide down)
the break is easy to push and doesnt break easily
the lay back position is great for kids who need to sleep on the go
the sun visor is a life savor
option to use with car seat (need to purchase the adapter)
fantastic customer service

con:
its wide but still easy to push
it can be heavy for some
the lock to close the stroller (it broke on mine)

Pretty sure most doubles will work with an adapter for the car seat. I've definitely seen it on the city mini.
Looks like the UB Vista doesn't work with Graco carseats. Has anyone tried the Mountain Buggy Duet?

Sure it does. Which Graco carseat do you have?

So our classic connect graco car seat that we have an adapter to attach to our 2014 uppa baby Vista broke.

Graco graciously gave me a $60 rebate towards another graco car seat. However, there are no classic connects to be found anywhere - they are all click connects. A click connect won't be compatible with our adapter and uppababy isn't making graco adaters that fit with click connect.

So what should've been a simple ~$40-$60 ordeal is becoming a major hassle.

Anyone have any suggetions where I could find a new classic connect or perhaps anyone looking to sell their lightly used one?

TIA!

You could always just give up on the graco credit, and purchase another brand carseat.

That means I need to buy a maxi cosi seat plus an adapter for my uppababy, totaling ~$250 with tax.

Ended up going with with new graco car seat and a snap and go.
