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)

Just wanted to let you guys now that I ended up buying the Maxi Cosi Foray for $160 on albeebaby.com http://www.albeebaby.com/maxi-cosi-foray-stroller-choco-mint.html
Just got it today and so far the brake button doesnt release properly. You have to get down and release it manually :-[
Otherwise it looks like a solid stroller  and has nice big air filled tires in the back.
call maxi-cosi... they may just send u a new one...
i deal with strollers all day- i never failed to get a new one when there was something small wrong...

What can I say . Great customer service! They offered me the new maxi cosi lx as a replacement which retails for $400 . A++ cs! The difference between the regular foray and the foray lx is 1) The lx folds with the seat 2) the lx reclines to bassinet mode front-facing and back-facing.3) the lx has  bigger storage . More reviews when it comes!

thats the trick i learnt with baby stuff in general... buy the old model pay the chpr price and almost always there is a problem- they send you the new product cus they dont have the old one in stock.... done that at least 4 times.... it always works!!
njoy ur new stroller!!

Well someone i knew had it so I tested it out and liked it. Very easy to maneuver. Nice big air filled tires. Seat can front face or back in all 3 positions (lx only).

So i Have the uppa baby, and I just had a 2nd baby bh.  I personally think the rumble seat is a pain in the tuchas, and not so easy to push the stroller when its on. What is the best option for a double stroller iyo?

I have 22 month old and we are expecting our second in a month. I am trying to figure out which stroller to get. Have it narrowed down to UB vista vs. city select vs. britax b-agile vs. city mini double. Anyone have any suggestions.
The most important feature to us is ability to fit into trunk.
Also my older daughter has to be willing to sit in it which may not happen if she can't see anything.
Also thinking that the city mini double may be too wide to fit into apartment and shop with in supermarket.
Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Best new double stroller: Mountain Buggy Duet.

Not sure what the UB Vista and Britax B-Agile are doing in that list, AFAIK they are only available as singles. You first have to decide whether you want a true double (side by side), like the City Mini Double or Mountain Buggy Duet mentioned, or a model that can be configured single or a double (inline), like the City Select or Britax B-Ready. Both types should have configurations that allow your 2 year old to have an unobstructed view, but obviously real doubles do this better and less awkwardly. In terms of getting them in the trunk, the real doubles are bigger, but they can be folded up with both seats in place (unless you have a car seat or bassinet attached instead), which is not the case with the single/doubles. There are also inline true doubles, but since none were mentioned I'll leave em out as well.

You are correct, I meant the B-ready. Vista has the option to attach a rumble seat to make it into a double.
I am open to other recommendations. What else did you have in mind?

Of ether ones mentioned which do you recommend?
