Title: Stroller/Carriage Master Thread
Post by: yossi4k on July 17, 2011, 04:15:41 PM
First of all a big shout out mazel tov to the DDF who had babies over the past week myself included  ;) :) thank the One above! This topic is dedicated to strollers and peoples experiences for good or for bad with them. I recently started looking into "The First Years Wave Stroller" for $299 http://comfortfirst.com/p-138132-the-first-years-wave-stroller-s630.aspx
Anybody out there have one of these?

What features are important for you in a stroller? That will be be very important in choosing a stroller.

Like for instance- I want/need a stroller that could be a single stroller (for a newborn meaning car seat adaptable) but also be a double bec my older son is not quite big enough to walk so far.

As far as I know the only 2 options for that are the citi selecet and the uppa baby we went with the citi select for today.

The city mini car seat adapter does not work on the double?
Title: Re: Stroller Reviews for all the newborns!!
Post by: Q274 on July 17, 2011, 05:21:14 PM
No I think it does- but the citi mini double is always a double stroller

Great Q
What I like about the the first wave is that :
1) It changes easily from front facing to back facing and  from bassinet to stroller without taking it from the base
2)easy to push
3) easy to fold
4) car-seat compatibly
What I dont like is the wheels are plastic and not air filled rubber ones like the bugaboo

2,3 and 4 you will find in so many strollers 1 not as many, I'm not sure why you are focusing on that one model. IMHO you might be better of going to a (heimish?) store where they are knowledgeable of the different strollers and can point out the pros and cons.

I have the Phil & Teds which is a single and switches to a double. I  like it alot.  The city select is a great stroller that also does that which I would have considered if it was out when I bought my Phil & Teds.


Unless your cool with paying $1500 for a Bugaboo Donkey!!

NO!!!!! to the city select - I hate it so much I would almost pay someone to take it!!! please trust me - I went through MANY strollers - the original baby jogger single , phil & ted,  city  select.. I have learnt that it is not worth compromising on a single for a double. the select is the same as the uppa baby but they added extra stuff (that make it not as good a single (like longer and bulkier, narrower and smaller seats...)to make it work for a double as well - but the double is AWFUL!!!!! does not wheel, does not recline in alnmost all of the positions except for one or two which are the most inconvient, the heavy child has to go closer to parent - (who wants to put their newborn so far away sticking out the world?!?!), ive had kids fall asleep and hang over like rag dolls cuz the seat was in a "no recline" position.... the list is endless - STAY AWAY!!! go with the uppa baby - I love it and am dreaming of it!!! as soon as I sell my select...:)

How would you compare the Phil & Teds to the Select? Is it any better or do you have a list of complaints for it as well ;)

I haven't yet used it as a double but I am very happy with it as a single.

it was very good, i had it in israel until my baby was 6 months, loved it til then ( even though the select does have a much better wheel as a single , but not a double) i sold it when i moved back and was glad cuz my baby was starting to get edgy at being on bottom and not able to see, kept wanting to come out, also the second seat is a bit short and my oldest at that time only 2 was just about hitting the bar on top of his head, dont know what would have happened...but loved the features and it was a breeze to use!
also u dont really have much of a basket in the phil with a second , the select has a huge basket - not always accessible based on position, but really great!

I have the Uppa Baby.  I am very picky and I love it.  It is not too heavy.  It has the regular seat plus the bassinet and it could turn into a double down the line.  Uppa Baby's customer service is unbelievable.  I heard about the City Select double that it is really tough to push as double because it is so long and heavy.  I would 100% recommend it

We have a 3 year old and 4 month old. 

We purchased the Joovy Caboose Ultralight about a month or two ago for use when we need to take both kids places (we use the Snap & Go or the Bob, when we only need it for one kid).  It works well with the Graco Snugright car seat and our older kid can sit in the jumpseat on the back.  Amazon had it for $229.

i dont see why u need to focus on a double stroller when you have one child. Get a stroller for one- and i"h when you have a second youll get another... Cus who knows what theyll have in another few years... and besides... u can always get a 100$ stroller for one of ur kids when their bigger if u have a double stroller- and sell a double or a single... they sell very fast. I would say stick to one- and do alot of research and make sure what you WANT is in that stroller... I happen to have a 600$ stroller (not a bugaboo) and i love my 125$ stroller better.... i love my other one as well- but its big and bulky- as apposed to light and easy. focus on whats best for u- and go to the store and try it out....

if the stroller is an amazing single and happens to have the double option as well, then why not?

i had the stokke, thebugaboo cameleon, the bgaboo bee ,mountain buggy, snap and go, mclaren global buggy (discontinued) and an umbrella stroller. whats best for the person imo is really where you live, what the stroller is used for and of course budget. if anyone is interested though, i do have a new in the box 2011 uppa baby vista in black or silver meca to sell, they retail for 679 im asking $530. i hope im allowed to say that here!!

Post by: newcomer on July 18, 2011, 10:31:12 PM
I have the Uppababy and am thrilled with the carriage and the customer service.  I think it fits the bill for what you are looking for . 

1)It can be changed from the bassinet, to forward facing or back facing very easily.
2)It is great to push around
3)It is easy to fold (and can even be folded while the seat is in forward facing position, unlike most bigger carriages).
4)Check out their website they let you know which car seats it will work for.
5)The wheels are not air filled or plastic.
The basket is very useful and large, the hood has a great sunshade etc.  You can also buy an attachment to convert it to a double carriage (if you need it in the future).

There are so many features on this carriage that I really like.  I would make sure to only buy it thru a geniune dealer otherwise they won't cover the warrenty.  I loved the carriage so much, I bought their stroller as well!  I think you can get the carriage for a little over $600.

I had the city mini and bugaboo cameleon we liked the city mini much better, though it does have down sides, you cant have the baby face you and the seat doesnt sit up all the way but its a breeze to fold. STAY AWAY FROM BUGABOO WE ONLY HAD TZORIOS WITH IT. the straps dont hold its a pain to fold it takes up your whole trunk IT CONSTANTLY FALLS INTO CRACK, the list goes on ...........

I also have an uppababy and love it.  It was great while leaving in NY (besides for the subway) but now I live in a city where you go from house to car to store to car.  the UppaBaby is a bit bulky for that and takes up a lot of room in the trunk.  But it is super comfy for the kids!

We have the Britax B-Ready stroller which has a single/double option and can fold with the second seat.
We liked it more than the city select single/double.

We LOVE it!!

That's a requirement on my wife's list.
Sorry to hear that your bugaboo fell into crack.  The thing is expensive enough as it is, let alone having to feed its crack addiction!

my sister in law got the first wave (or whatever its called) and she was very happy with it.
however it doesnt go to 50 lbs - thats a 5-6 yr old
she dot it thru bed bath and beyond. when she flew with it and they broke it, she was able to return for a full refund.

personally i had the phill and ted and was pretty happy. now that my kids are older its nice to be able to use it for a 5 yr old (we have a long walk to shul on y"t) and my 3 yr old goes on the bottom. as they get older, obviously they like going on the top better but they were ok with sitting in the back for the most part.

someone who is going for the name bugaboo doesnt want the knockoff, and someone who is going for a good stroller, is paying for the product itself , quality, cs, durability... obviously i wouldnt mind if someone would make a copy of an expensive good one such as the uppa baby and sell for cheap... I ll be the first customer!

Yeah, you are right. Bug-a-boo was a bad example.

A knock off of the uppa baby - possibly minus the customer service for $200 sounds do-able.

-just another perk ob ody mentioned, is the great build in sun protector, its really simple and usefull in summer
Don't know specific problems with bugaboo, though many I spoke to had probs with cammelion

Just a piece of advice - Get the Snap and go (http://www.amazon.com/Graco-SnugRider-Infant-Stroller-Frame/dp/B0007KMUH4/ref=sr_1_1?s=baby-products&ie=UTF8&qid=1311056433&sr=1-1) and use that for the first 6-10 months while your kid is in an infant carseat. They're so compact and an excellent piece of baby gear to own. Then take your time figuring out which stroller you want to buy. Trust me, you will love how light it is and although it's not great on all terrains, it will make your life much much easier than lugging around a 20 pound stroller!!!!!

we got the mountain buggy in 2008 and we're very happy with it. its a very strong and durable stroller given the abuse we subject it to on our trips around the world. it rolls like a dream over the cobblestones in europe as well as through the snow in switzerland. its like a stroller 4x4, or better yet, the stroller beast.

i dont know what the new ones are like though, as ours was manufactured in new zealand and i think the new ones are made in china

From the research that I did about a year ago, if you want the best price for a new stroller, email babygear@capitalkidz.com, or call them (Israeli #:) 052-765-5439. Note: they have 2 day shipping included in the price, they only ship to the US.

Yes it is worth it.  The bugaboo is a big pain to fold.  You basically eed to take the whole thing apart to fold it.  Also for 30 bucks you can buy an adapter for the uppa baby to use with your car seat which saves you from having to get a snap and go.  Also their customer service is phenomenal.

I tried someone's bugaboo frog.  The folding was not difficult, just pushing a button on each side and it folds pretty much flat, it's not a wide footprint at all.  And they had a graco adapter for it as well.

I see there's lots of UB fans here, but I'm still just trying to understand why its worth paying $180 more for a bigger stroller.  The reasons given so far don't seem to hold water.

I find that even thouh the UB might be a little bigger, it was easier to put in a trunk.  You don't need to remove the seat when folding which is a liitle more convenient

The Uppababy seat is a much wider and deeper seat in comparison to the Bugaboo.  If you look at toddlers sitting in the bugaboo it almost looks like they are falling out.  Another thing, I think someone mentioned it, but I am not sure you understood.  The Uppababy can be folded while the seat is attached, as opposed to the Bugaboo where you have to remove the seat to fold.  (None of the fold with the bassinet.) Also to switch from the bassinet to the seat is a pain with the Bugaboo and the UB is real easy.  One more thing, to change positions on the UB in the toddler seat, you can do it with one hand (if you are holding a crying/sleeping baby) in the Bugaboo you need both hands.

My favorite stroller.... is the umbrella :) :P light and compact easy to fold and carry while holding a baby in the other hand.
Obviously it is not at all easy to push but I love using it fr short distances/stores, its convenience should not go unmentioned.

We use the city select with the car seat adapter and like it. It's big when using it with one kid, but is nice when using it as a double.

1stly romanian deli is simply the best-so thanks
 2: regarding the uppa baby just be informed, that this buisness that it folds with the seat is only if its facing forwards, so if you have your bassinet or seat facing one of the ways still needs to be takin apart.
 3: when traveling the basket and todler seat of uppa baby can not be "compressed" you will have this big bulky thing you dont know what to do with, where as the buggaboo the bassinet and todler seat use the same "frame" so it can easily be takin apart.( just need to undo the velcro and it slides right off the metal frame to about 1/2 in in height) for ex: i was able to fit the bassinet easily into a suit case.
4: many times your going to want to seperate the regadless of stroller bec. you will get more space that way, and it can fit better.
    just my thoughts

#2 takes away the only real advantage of the Uppa that anyone has posted in this thread.
Now it's just $200 more for reasons that nobody seems to be able to explain very well.

Dan,
 I just did a lot of research on the BB verses the UppaBaby vs the Urbo(new).
I live in a development where ppl have the BB bee, frog and cameleon.
First of all the frog bassinet is SO low you need to bend to see your baby.
There is a reason they are discontinuing it . Ppl are not happy with it.
I've heard various complaints like the older babies arent comfortable sitting in it, its low,etc.
But Buggaboo is still a status stroller and uppa baby is not.
After doing a lot of research on the uppababy it hands down beats the bb.
some of the reasons: Its wheels dont lose air I think they are rubber filled(like the city elite that I have- need to pump) it pushes like a dream. Its higher. Protects from sun better. Positions are comfortable for all age kids. Great colors too.
It has one disadvantage - its big. So if you want a stroller for in and out of the car this is not the one.
There is one more stroller that is really cool looking its the new URBO by mammas and pappas. It has a bassinet too but has small wheels like the city mini. So you are paying a lot for the cool look and the bassinet. Its smaller then the UB and pushes well on regular sidewalks streets. UB pushes great everywhere (bumps curbs very nicely too).
After hours and hours speaking to ppl, store owners Jewish and not that uppababy has the best reviews for everything except that its big. (I did research for a few relatives that just had babies)

Good Luck

But there was an offer out there for $480 you said.  It seems to me you are just another one of those flatbush girls that has to have the Bugaboo.  Too bad you are already 6 years too late and now you can only be cool if you get the bugaboo donkey.  God luck keeping up with the Joneses.

Thanks for a balanced review.  Fitting and getting in/out of a trunk is important to us, as is having the baby face the pusher.
Having said that, what do you think is the least expensive, yet quality stroller out there, that is also has the smallest footprint for taking in and out of a trunk?

you should really check out the Bumbleride. it is easy to get in and out of the car. it pushes both ways- facing the pusher and facing out. it also can fold with the seat and while it doesnt have a bassinet seperate the seat folds all the way down for newborns to sit in and you can also have a car seat adapter for it. the basket is nice and large to store stuff in. and it is cheaper than both the BB and uppa

dont know about the UB and bb but i have the select which does have one huge advantage and that is the sturdiness - i toss it in the trunk and grab it out with one hand and it just unfolds on the way out and plops on the ground all open and locked, folded it prob takes up bout as much room as the UB. i think the UB is a little more delicate.

Dan ,
 A few more questions to you.
1. Do you want a bassinet? That makes  a difference. Some include the price some dont.
2. Do you want it to turn into a double( i personally dont like that- I have the old combi double and the city elite. I love the city elite double I have twins that are 3 now and used it since they outgrew the snap n go) Pays to buy a single and one day a double if you need.
3. Where do you plan to use it? On sidewalks, mall or in country settings?
4. Do you want from the cheaper strollers like citi mini category or from whats called luxury strollers (bugabbo, urbo, valco, uppababy etc).
5. Would you consider buying a nicer stroller for home and a $100 car stroller?(eventhough if its just you and your wife and one kid I see no reason you cant take the big strollers- maybe a little more effort but I see in the elite malls everyone pushing uppababy and bb so they take it in the car.

After you answer I can probably give you a better answer.
Title: Re: Stroller Reviews for all the newborns!!
Post by: Nitantnel on July 20, 2011, 01:06:09 PM
Wow, this thread is getting complicated!

I have some hard feelings about the Bugaboo. First of all ,they have horrible costumer service, if any. I called them about 10 times and got a answer only once, and this wasn't after hours! this is on top of the multiple emails I sent them, which also went unanswered and unconfirmed. I don't need to be a part of an elitist company if they are so nasty.  I do not say elitist simply because they did not answer me, that is their mentality: When my chassis broke - and it broke because it's junk! - they made me (and all others) buy a new one - 399.00! Deal with them once and I doubt you'll deal with them again, they are simply h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e!!

With that said, you can always get the cameleon for 400.00 dollars or so on craigslist, but I don't know if your that kind of guy.

Enjoy your baby! (more than the stroller... :) )

When I bought the UB I knew it wasn't a great carriage to take in and out of a car.  I figured I didn't really need to take it in and out very often.  When my baby outgrew the snap-n-go, I realized how hard it was to keep taking the UB in and out of the car etc, I splurged and bought a G-luxe to keep in the car and the UB stays at home.  Figured I would get more life out of the UB if I didn't keep taking it in and out of the car!

the frog bec my brother had and loved it for yrs so quality was good and a cpl hundred off is what got me

i also needed an umbrella stroller being that im going to europe next month with my baby all due to you
and the reviews that i read was that gluxe has a massive canopy so no sun in their face and more importantly  the seat reclines back alot compared to maclaren. plus it was lighther than maclaren and it is same price as those like 180
Title: Re: Stroller Reviews for all the newborns!!
Post by: tll on July 20, 2011, 04:43:27 PM
I see you will get a million opinions!
The g-luxe, mclaren , citi min(even the bubbleride) they are all one look.
They are all part of the cheaper line. The bubbleride flyer does face you. So in the cheaper line you do have some that face you.

The uppababy, urbo (which is really nice looking) , bugaboo, valco etc these strollers are all more expensive but have a bassinet.
If you want to splurge, the stroller with the best reviews across the board is the uppababy (it has every pro about a stroller - the one con being that its a little big but I think worth it) but you may want to get a $100 maclaren umbrella stroller for traveling.

Good luck

i have lots to add.. but every time i try i realize i have to much to add.... but one thing i will say is that right now you want the baby facing you, but when hes about 5 months old all he wants is to look around. I also focused on that so much- and he hated facing me! and until 5 months i had a bassinet and an infant seat!!! i will only switch mine facing me now if the sun is strong and my hood isnt the best hood around and hes sleepin. Remember... infant seat till around age 7 months, than you put them into a seat (unless u do bassinet which is really difficult to travel with..) and by then they wanna see out. Another thing, i happen to love my air filled tired- it rides so smooth.. but you only need that for rocky roads. and what i find the funniest is that i love my travel stroller above all $500+ strollers!!!(cybex callisto http://cybex-online.com/site/us/pushchairs/callisto0.html (http://cybex-online.com/site/us/pushchairs/callisto0.html).. best travel stroller and best customer service ive ever seen!!!!) But i do love to have a big bouncy expensive stroller as well- but the more practical it is and the more useful it is the more you'll love it....

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!

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

Post by: skyguy918 on December 05, 2011, 09:23:04 AM
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.
Title: Re: Stroller Reviews for all the newborns!!
Post by: Ergel on December 05, 2011, 09:45:25 AM
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?

Definitely not good for fitting in to trunk. City mini is great in terms of convenience (ease of folding, fitting in trunk, etc) and decent as a stroller (note: new 2011 version is much better).

Wow, this thread is getting complicated!

I have some hard feelings about the Bugaboo. First of all ,they have horrible costumer service, if any. I called them about 10 times and got a answer only once, and this wasn't after hours! this is on top of the multiple emails I sent them, which also went unanswered and unconfirmed. I don't need to be a part of an elitist company if they are so nasty.  I do not say elitist simply because they did not answer me, that is their mentality: When my chassis broke - and it broke because it's junk! - they made me (and all others) buy a new one - 399.00! Deal with them once and I doubt you'll deal with them again, they are simply h-o-r-r-i-b-l-e!!

With that said, you can always get the cameleon for 400.00 dollars or so on craigslist, but I don't know if your that kind of guy.

Enjoy your baby! (more than the stroller... :) )

Wow I m sorry u had such a bad experience with bugaboo CS. For me it was quite the opposite! I had my bugaboo cameleon for more than 3 years and a couple of weeks ago the brakes started to fail... They were not working at all - we couldnt even remove our hands from the stroller's handle for a sec... So i called CS and told them that it was dangerous for me to operate the stroller and the nice lady told me that I should receive a new $300+tax chassis within a week... B"H.

I tried using it as a double with my 2 year old in the rumble seat.  He absolutely hated it.  They have no way of looking out.  Its like solitary confinement

ohh... so ur the one on the bus that always thinks theres enuf room to have ur double stroller in the aisle?

seems like a good choice.. but i dont have it and ive never seen it either- but from this clip it seems pretty good if ur lukin for a double seat in the back of ur stroller..

But seriously, that's one of the reasons we were looking at a front to back rather than a side-by-side. Just watching people with the double city mini getting on buses, shopping at the makolet etc. it seems a front to back is a must.

front to back is much harder to maneuver than the double city mini.  also it sucks for crossing streets... you have one of your kids sticking halfway into the street while you look for oncoming cars.        in terms of buses, i find that its the front/back strollers that clog up the aisle bec it's way too long.            also take into account that one of your kids (in the back) will have most of his vision blocked out by the seat in front of him,  as a baby it's not such a big deal but as they get bigger it's an issue.

It really boils to what you want. A proper double stroller is always the best as the kids are most comfortable and have a better view.

phil and ted (http://www.zulily.com/invite/mbreez861/p/dash-doubles-kit-10497-960458.html?tid=referral_email)

Includes Dash stroller, doubles kit, Cocoon and storm cover

great option if anyone is looking for a double stroller!!
and a ps... the last time i called them cuz 10% off coupon didnt work on a stroller they gave me 10% off onto store credit (33$ store credit towards the purchase) but this was a week ago b4 january so not sure if theres a 10% off... but in general the customer service is amazing and very accommodating!!

Personally, I'm a big fan of the Phil and Ted's double. It has the smallest/narrowest footprint of any double I've seen and folds well. Te only annoyance is having to pop off the lower seat to fold it into the trunk.

I have a bug and a UB (both free, duh), the UB is far superior and well worth the money.

My brother was determined to find a cheaper alternative and went through quite a few different strollers before finally buckling down and getting the UB and agreeing that it's the best all-around stroller around.

Dunno I'd have to ask him.

But if you want to test an UB out get it from BB&B, their lifetime return policy simply can't be beat and they will match online prices (plus give you 20% off with a coupon-YMMV).
And free shipping if it's on your registry.

in addition, whats ur opinion; is it cheaper to use UR points or just buy it straight up?

also yes, B3 is amazing as i already have used it to my adv there return policy (my mother in law saya nordstums)  also the UB is usable for kids at all ages right? when do they have sales? iyh god willing my wifes due in 6 weeks, or so, u think theyll be a sale on anything - not that u work for them :-), but in ur past expireance

I got from Bug for free thanks to AMEX (http://forums.dansdeals.com/index.php?topic=12429.msg158717#msg158717l) and the UB with Zulily credits when they had it for under $400 last year.

Air wheels are filled with air so provide a smoother ride than hard rubber wheels. For example the bugaboo cameleon has two (big) air wheels at the back and two (small) rubber wheels at the front.
Then there's suspension which also adds to smoothen bumps.
Also if you choose a three wheel buggy (with big front wheel) you get easier over small bumps but those strollers are a whole lot bigger.
Have you got an idea what you like?
I went to a store and the guy explained everything to us so we got a little idea what to look for.(even though my wife didn't change her mind and still chose a bugaboo)
The best is to see then firsthand and try them out.
I assume you're having your first,  me too. Besha'a tova. ;)

Not looking for an umbrella stroller?
We have this one in a different color
 http://www.amazon.com/gp/aw/d/B000FFS9VM

do you find the lack of a fullish recline to be an issue? also, how much of a difference would an 11 lb stroller vs a 17 lb one be?

Not really, but my daughter never sleeps in the stroller anyways. If I had a kid that did, it would probably be more bothersome
I assume very big

My daughter isn't a newborn, but it's stroller-talk nonetheless....

Just was wondering if any of you have an umbrella stroller for travelling, and if so which one
Heard abt the inglesina swift and the gluxe
Have the UBV, but planning to travel to Europe for a few days and want something lightweight and easy to travel with

Daughter will iyh be about 9 months, wants something that folds easily and compactly, reclines,good sun canopy,and relatively comfortable too. Of course, inexpensive too!  ;D

Any suggestions? Experiences?

I love the UB G-lux.  Great canopy (like the Vista with the extended part), folds nicely and not very heavy.  Also has a padded insert on seat.  Have it for 2 years.

For some reason, the goto in my area is the City Mini. which we knew off the bat we wouldn't get.  My parents had bought us the UB Vista but my wife wanted the Cruz (just came out in 2012).  It's about 3/4 the size of the Vista and we love it.  The Cruz is more practical for our tiny apt.

It's only 3 pounds lighter and 2.5" narrower, you lose the awesome huge "4WD wheels," worse suspension, you get a smaller basket (which is one of the best features of the UBV for shopping, travel, etc), there's no bumper bar, you can't add the rumble double seat, and you don't get a bassinet.

Not sure if it's worth it.

I agree. Personally, I liked the Vista better but ultimately it's my wife who made the decision and carries it around all day while I am at work. We have free reign of the UB Vista which is at my parents about 10 miles away, which we use for travelling.

which is the older model and I like it a lot. I get lots of compliments on how I fit 2 kids in such a small area. It was the first of its kind to stack the 2 seats instead of having them side by side. Now there are a bunch of other strollers that stack but many of them are very bulky.

Just ordered the vista and citi select- for use as a double stroller. Here are my thoughts-
citi select:
- folds flatter and smaller than vista (big plus)
- second seat can fast forward

vista:
-stands up while folded
-folds down easier (with the citi select, you must detach  a couple parts to get it to fold completely flat)

I'm thinking of going with the citi select. Anyone car to chime in?

Never used the citi but myself along with many DDFers here will tell you the vista is the way to go.

That may very well be true.  I dont know about the Vista as a double.  The OP did not mention he is looking for one specifically to make it a double.  He just mentioned a pro (for him) of the citi is that the second seat can fast forward.

ETA:  over read the OP saying he needs it specifically for a double stroller.

Post by: aj26 on January 23, 2013, 11:47:58 AM
I am specifically looking for one as a double. I have a city mini as a single which I am very happy with
The strange thing about both of them is that the foot rests don't fold over 180 degrees. This would make them take up much less space when folding them up. I can't quite figure out why they don't.
Condensed folding is important to me so we can pack it in the trunk of the car on a car trip

IMHO Everything depends on your usage/needs/preferences.
but. . . in general Citi Mini is best in single and double version.
light, good size, easy to fold, well priced.

 Almost same price to buy a single for 1st kid and double if you need for a second kid  as to buy city select + 2nd seat.
single will still be useful to have around even if you have the double

so we went w/ single for 1st kid and we'll be happy to get double when we need it.

And in our test drives she felt like it was a truck...more so than any other carriage we tried.

Doesn't the UB have adjustable handle? I'm 5'2" and I can push my UB when the handle is higher without a problem..
Why don't you go to a baby store to try out the different strollers and then decide? You don't need to buy from that store..

Yes it does but the lowest setting was still to high for my wife. It hurt her wrists and wasn't comfy to push. Of course we went to the store to test drive them. That's how we narrowed it down to the bugaboo or moms&pops sola.

My friends who used the ubv as a double only used it short term till they got a real double since they said it really was not practical at all. Also there is a big diff on the wheels of the bugaboo and ubv. bugaboo uses air filled wheels in the donkey (not sure about cam) which handle much better than the foam filled ones on ubv

The donkey has a great side basket to put the diaper bag in and has a large underbasket which I think the new cam3 has as well. Also most real jogging strollers have air filled tires not foam since they handle the outside elements better

Sure but then your stroller won't fit down the aisle.  The UBV can fit a diaper bag and 6 full shopping bags without being as wide as a cow.

The UBV pushes like a dream.  Nothing else pushes as well that I've seen.
I started off with a Bug Frog that had air tires...they were a total PITA.  At least it was free as it rots in my basement now.

Don't think I can convince my wife. We tried the ub and it hurts her wrists even on the lowest setting. And she feels like its a truck.
What can a man do??
The UB handle is 40" from the ground.  Unless your wife is under 4 feet tall I don't see how it could be an issue...

Buy both from Bed bath and use each for a week and report the results.

MrsKrackedDude says, "I want to know how the Mamas & Papas compares to the UBV. They are pretty much in the same price range, but the Ma&Pa is much smaller and sleeker. Thank you."

How does the BedBathBeyond deal work? something about making a registry and free shipping in store and accepting coupons but I'm confused about it.

Sure but then your stroller won't fit down the aisle.  The UBV can fit a diaper bag and 6 full shopping bags without being as wide as a cow.

The UBV pushes like a dream.  Nothing else pushes as well that I've seen.
I started off with a Bug Frog that had air tires...they were a total PITA.  At least it was free as it rots in my basement now.

A guy in CLE got the BugC3 thinking he was smarter than everyone else in shul here who has the UBV.  He returned it within a month when he was able to do a fair comparison and admits that there's no advantage of the Bug at all.

I'm pretty sure he's talking about the Donkey in single mode, which is 1.5in less wide than the UBV. While in that mode it also gives you 2 storage options - down in the bottom basket or up closer within reach in the extra basket they provide. Hard to say without actually being able to compare the 2, but I'd say the Donkey probably has more storage space in single mode than the UBV.

A far more convincing argument against the Donkey would be price, with an MSRP of $1200. It does have an advantage of converting to a side by side double if that's something you'll need/want, but $1200... come on.

I don't know much about the donkey, but wow, $1,600 for the double...crazy.  And still no storage space as a double...why cant Bugaboo fix that?
And stupid (IMHO) air filled tires.  Why does the BC3 have foam and the donkey has air??

$1600 is for a twin double not the regular double. The twin comes with 2 bassinets & 2 seats and has a large storage basket underneath the seats. and yes the donkey is actually narrower then the uppa baby so would not be a problem getting through places plus you then have the side basket which is amazing. Talk to any stroller expert they will tell you air filled tires are better than foam if you do any jogging/off road walks. Also another plus the bugaboo has over uppa baby is the ability to ride on the back 2 wheels when going through snow or sand. It is much easier to pull that way.But to each their own...

I have the maclaren techno xlr which i got on sale for under $200, actually under $100 but it was a crazy sale. Look at the techno its cheaper and its a great stroller. I would not suggest the maclaren volo since it doesnt recline at all.

Last night we tried out my sister in laws UBV, wheeling it outside on sidwalk street and on grass. It wheels like a dream can't compare anything to it. But wife doesn't think she can get used to the height of the handlebar and its just not comfy for her to push.
If there would be a way to make the handlebar a inch or 2 lower....

I wouldn't push the UBV too hard. :) (no pun intended).

She is going to be using the carriage most of the time so if she decides on the UBV great, but if you convince her any issue related to the carriage will be blamed on UBV.
It will always be in the back of her mind that UBV is great but we should have got a ..........

BBB has the 2013 model for $729. Plus 20% off is $583.20

I need to meet some spending on a BGR, so I'm thinking of buying BBB GC from OM with my Amex for an additional 10% = 524.88 (and maybe some CB..sshh don't tell anyone).

Anyone have any better ideas or suggestions?

BBB has lifetime coverage.

The question is if it's worth it to do the whole GC option for 10-15% savings, but I don't see why not.

YMMV.  My wife has had success with BBB using coupons on items they aren't technically allowed to give the 20% off.

im not sure where to post, but i have an UBV and its great. one issue we have is that we feed my son on the go a lot, his cheerios, or puffs, and so on, the fabric gets filthy and dirty. as well the upside down bottle doesnt do any good either.

any advise on what to do? i just got a brand new stroller, so im hoping to buy a cover for the fabric.... make sense?

You can buy a fabric liner.  I just wash it with a damp cloth.

My sister bought an Uppa Baby about 2 years ago. She's only been using it for about a year and not too often. She washed the fabric for the first time and it came out with 2 holes in it.  She's never had that with any of her other strollers.

Anything I can do at this point?
Call UppaBaby? BuyBuyBaby?

Call UB.  It's out of warranty, but they will most probably help.
Also, if it's within 2 years and she bought it on amex she would have extended warranty as well

Its that time when i need to start looking at double strollers,
& i've just spent the last hour reading through all 22 pages & i still haven't decided,
i currently have a snap-n-go, the bugaboo cameleon (didn't have a choice) & citi mini single.
I'm leaning towards getting the citi mini double with car seat adaptor though i hear its a PITA to fold into the car with the adaptor
or is there any way of converting the chameleon into a double?

what should i go for??


also does anyone have experience with this?

+1, if you prize being able to keep your infant in a carseat (so they're more portable and you don't need to wake them to go places) then there really isn't a good solution.  The donkey is probably as good as that gets but it's really overpriced.

We use the UB with rumble seat and have had good luck so far.  Truth is by the time Talia is out of her carseat we may not need a double (we rarely do now) but if we do it'll be the City Mini GT.

Can't speak for the Baby Trend, but the City Elite is massive. Bigger than any other stroller I've experienced. It pushes really well though for such a huge stroller. You better have a big trunk (and strong arms) if you ever plan on transporting it, and a space the size of a garage to leave it in your house.

It won't be quite the same as the Elite, but the step up to foam wheels from the Mini to the GT is a bigger deal IMO than the increase in size from the GT to the Elite.

I know of a coupon code to get 50% off of the new Duet (etc.) hard rubber (not inflated) wheels. Only works for that AFAIK. on phil & teds.

Totally worth it. I have replaced numerous air tires already and they aren't cheap.

Yes I know, I went through the whole ordeal with my wife too...
We ended up going with a buggabo buffalo- it's a little bigger then the camillian (about same as vista) and are very happy with our decision.
You def cannot say the bug is junk (as someone said above), he might know a few plm complaining about bugs, I know some complaining about vista too...

Vista may be a little more practical and meter priced, but looks is a big factor too- and I couldn't convince my wife it didnt look like a tent on wheels!

This is probably an unpopular opinion here but I strongly dislike the UBV.
It's the only stroller I have had (besides the graci snap an go) so I don't have anything to compare it to. That being said, I found the UBV to be very bulky.
Also it is very difficult to fold, so much so that my wife won't use it without me there to fold it.
And on top of all that their customer service is pretty bad. On the positive side it is pretty functional when you don't need to fold it. There is lots of space for storage underneath, and it moves very smoothly.
All in all I'm not a fan and Now that I need a double I'm going for the citi select.

Now that I need a double I'm going for the citi select.

If you have a problem with the UBV being bulky, you should probably stay far away from the Select. It might be the bulkiest, heaviest stroller around. I loved the idea of the different configurations and Citi's incredibly easy folds. But speaking to anyone with real world use, they hate it. Never met anyone happy with their purchase. When we were looking at it in the store, the saleslady warned us strongly against getting it. She said she gets a ton of complaints from those that bought it.

Just my 2 cents.

For a single? Sure. For a double? Definitely not. I'm not saying I would recommend it, but it's not bulky in comparison to most double strollers.

I figure any double is going to be somewhat bulky so I am just giving up in that area for easier folding and more configurations. Of all the people I know that have the citi select double none dislike it in fact all really like it. Actually two of them had the ubv and strongly recomend the citi select (at least for a double)

I didn't look for doubles so I can't really give such an educated opinion - I only checked out the Select as it is a single that can later become a double. But anecdotal experience from those I know, it is heavy and difficult to get around with. I know one switched to the Citi Mini double.

If you think you'll be switching a lot between single and double modes, then maybe Select might be the right choice. Otherwise I'd say go with the City Mini GT. The fold in double mode is not as quick and easy with the Select, and it certainly doesn't fold as flat as the Mini series. Only thing you miss out on is the extra configuration possibilities, which I personally think is not a big deal. At the very least go into the store with your kids, put them both in each (Mini GT and Select in double mode) and see which one seems easier to push.

Exactly. Just looking at this thread, you see such varying opinions on the exact same products. You have just try them out and see for yourself what you prefer.

And don't rely on watching someone else fold it easily. Try it yourself. If you can't do it in the store, you definitely can't fold it while watching 4 kids, carrying 8 shopping bags, whatsapping your cousin, and not spilling your mocachino.

Oh and I forgot about how annoying it is to put the seat on. It's not impossible but for such an expensive stroller you would expect it to be smooth not have to push the sides of the stroller in to make room for the seat.

You must be very special. I never once heard one person complain about how hard it is to fold the UB. I have heard everyone complain though how annoying it is to fold the bug. "Its three pieces" "its hard to fold quickly" and so on...

And maybe the wife should put up or shut up. Esp if finances are an issue.

I was in a hotel over yt and someone needed my stroller for a couple hrs and she didn't stop saying how light and easy the stroll was compared to there bug.

Though I must admit when I'm in america I think I am.switching to an umbrella stroller. Much easier in and out of cars.

I dont know mch about it but i can tell you from what i see. It seems amazing and quick to fold. VERY easy, a nd light. Much less bulky than the UB and def more practical than the bug. I see tons of them on the streets, beat up and looking like they went thru a war. seems like a solid option

Would you say that there are drawbacks to the UBV specifically in Israel? We spoke to someone who had a City Select, which I could definitely be mistaken but it seems like a similar concept to the UBV. She told us that it was great for flat ground in Woodmere but it was a terror in Israel. The UBV seems awesome but if it's hard to push on hills and uneven ground then it's probably not shayich for us.

We test-pushed the UBV, the GT, (and the Bugaboos, just for fun). The UBV pushes very easily, everything interchanges easily, seems all around to be a great stroller. The folding definitely takes some getting used to though. My wife is very small and had trouble folding it.

Yeah the rep at BBB had us lock the wheels. It feels like something that you get used to after a bit of time. Also I'd imagine it's easier to do when you aren't eight and a half months pregnant..

The shaila is the regular mini vs gt.  Worth the extra?  Seems so, just want confirmation.

Also, I called two stores here.  Both were cheaper (480) than Amazon.  480 sounds right?  (I cannot fathom paying that much for a stroller, if I was going to keep it.)

 That sounds about right. I think stores in lakewood are about 499.
IIRC
GT= better wheels, adjustable handlebar, more comfy seats
REG= about 6-8lbs lighter so that may make a difference if you need to shlep it in/out car or up/down stairs.

City Mini GT. You could spend more on something a little more... robust, I guess is the word (UB Vista being the most popular on this thread). But then you'd be cutting it closer to your budget and you'd be sacrificing in the lightweight/easy fold department. Ultimately you should try out any options you're interested in at a store before making a decision.

The wheels is a huge deal IMO. It also has a different handlebar (straight across and height adjustable, as opposed to the regular model that has a fixed, rounded handlebar) and a hand break (as opposed to the foot break on the regular model).

The other difference don't seem like a big deal.

I have a City Mini single and a City Elite double (they don't make them anymore - got it lightly used for $100). The Elite is way bigger/heavier than the Mini or Mini GT putting it easily out of this discussion, but it has those 3 features that the GT has over the regular Mini (adjustable handlbar, hand break, and foam tires). It has other upgrades over the GT as well - the tires are the same type but much bigger, magnetic sun flaps, side vent flaps, etc. But I'd say that the 3 features the GT adds are worth the $100 based on seeing the difference between not having them on the Mini regular and having them on the Elite.

City Mini GT. You could spend more on something a little more... robust, I guess is the word (UB Vista being the most popular on this thread). But then you'd be cutting it closer to your budget and you'd be sacrificing in the lightweight/easy fold department. Ultimately you should try out any options you're interested in at a store before making a decision.
thanks

it prob would make a huge difference to me as it is for Israel where the streets can get quite bumpy. also i travel often and its less then desirable surfaces more often than not

I figured. Like I said, go into a store and push them around, just so you're sure it's what you're looking for (that's true no matter what you get). The GT is heavier (almost all the extra weight is the difference in wheels), but still light overall, and with the same really compact, quick fold.

+1 for city mini GT in Israel
yes UBV is most popular in this thread and it is an amazing carriage but having had the city mini in Israel and the UBV in America my opinion is that for Israel the City Mini is more practical

I'll just reiterate what some of the others said -
-it's lightweight enough to hold with one hand
-the one step fold can't be beat - you can take the baby out and hold him/her in one hand while using the other to fold the carriage and load it into a taxi/bring it on to the bus
-even the taxi drivers in Israel know how to fold the City Mini!
-for a newborn its great to get the car seat adapter and use the city mini as a snap n go type of carriage (but it has real wheels)
-def worth it to get the GT for the rough roads (and if you're one of those who bumps the carriage up/down steps)

I used it to price match at my local buy buy baby, and lucky me they didn't have the regular citi mini in stock, so they gave me the GT :)

What do you need it to be compact for, exactly? I would say the City strollers are actually very compact, in a different way/form than a typical umbrella stroller. It may not be quite as compact as a true umbrella, but it's small enough for most needs.

Seeking some advice about strollers. My wife is expecting and although we are not expecting twins, we see a value in purchasing the Bugaboo Donkey over the other Bugaboos since we would like to have kids close together in age.  Is this a stupid thing? Do people have the Buagaboo Donkey that can say what they like and don't like about it.  Any help would be greatly appreciated.

We got the Donkey once we had our 2nd (after having an Uppa Baby for the 1st).  The Donkey sucks -- wheels are small and difficult to push (especially when your kids get a little older), it's hard to fold up and store away, and the handle doesn't go as high as the Uppa Baby.  Highly recommend avoiding this product.

The graco and chicco adapters are pretty similar. The maxi-cosi adapter is much less obtrusive, but you probably have to take it off for the bassinet anyway.

Mho definitely worth getting the GT.

What are the advantages?
Title: Re: Stroller/Carriage Master Thread
Post by: semper fi on October 23, 2015, 12:08:41 AM
What are the advantages?
The wheels are the kicker , no comparison in the smoothness of pushing the stroller.

You also get a few different positions for the handlebar as apposed to 1 stationery.

City Mini's are just about the best/easiest strollers for that purpose other than umbrella strollers. Not much difference between the different models in that regard other than slight variations in weight - but the pros for the GT far surpass the extra weight.

the one downside to the GT is it is very back heavy and if you pt bags on the back it is more prone to tip back.

I'd say the same about the non-GT (which is what I have). Maybe the GT is a little worse, but I can't imagine it being a reason not to get it.

Check the returns at BuyBuyBaby, a lot of times they have great deals on used strollers that are actually just open box.
PishPoshBaby.com (http://PishPoshBaby.com) has alot of open-box strollers and car seats, but you ave to call them to see what they have available and price (or just stop by their showroom (https://www.google.com/maps/place/Pish+Posh+Baby/@40.0778396,-74.1679018,17z/data=!3m1!4b1!4m2!3m1!1s0x89c17ed04040a849:0xfcc6358b428d6f7))

Any recommendations on a stroller that is fit for a newborn and the actual seat can convert for when they are older? Not two separate pieces.
Something under $700.
I'm in Israel so weight would be an issue

I got my swift a few years ago. The seat it comes with could be used for newborns & older, as you can loosen the strap & then it lays down. You can buy the carrycot separately if you want the newborn facing you. Its like a bassinet.

I might sell you my Uppababy Vista 2014 for the right price. I don't really use it anymore. It's green and the frame and rear wheels are new, they were just replaced a few weeks ago. Comes with bassinet and liner. Oh, and rain and bug covers..

Massively. Much easier to fold now, much better if you want to add a rumbleseat to make a double.
Plus current accessories won't work with the versions before 2015.

Wow, well those are all great reasons to get something current. Do you think BB&B is better or worse than Nordstrom with returns? I know Nordstrom will send you a return label, but BB&B is pretty good too, no? Decided whether to take advantage of the current sale on DDMS.

That was referring to Babysden.com. I just looked it up though. BB&B does offer free returns but the lifetime return policy doesn't apply to baby items (which can only be returned in unused condition).

My UB Vista 2010 frame just split!!! The only thing they can do for me is offer me a new frame at a discounted price.  Am I wrong to think that a frame to an expensive carriage should last much longer?  I really take good care of the carriage and am using it for my second kid.  Till now I have had such good experiences with the carriage, but this is very upsetting!

The lascal maxi is supposed to be better then the mini, and i see that it's cheaper now.... I have it for a single stroller and like it.
You need to buy an additional piece for the duet....

Instead of. No car seat goes over the existing seat, even with adapters.
The new uppa baby can be used as a double stroller, so I was wondering if I can use both simultaneously, not replace it.

If you get the adapters to make it a double stroller then you can have the car seat in one position and a regular (rumble) seat in the other position.

We live in Eretz Yisroel and are looking for a stroller for our first child, IY'H. We are looking into the Uppababy Vista and City Select. Since we live in E"Y there is a lot of walking on not such smooth paths, we need space for many packages and we live on the third floor with no elevator.
Considering these facts
1- which stroller would be better for pushing, storage and steps, not too heavy?
2- does it make sense for me to be nervous about the double option now, I know the vista is a great single but not as good as a double, and it is not as cheap as the city select?
3- I noticed that the bugaboo has a small seat for a child, it looks like kids are falling out of it, are the vista and select the same way? which one has a bigger seat?
4- Where is a good place to order a stroller from? It seems that BB&B is the place to go but it doesn't have a great warranty, Is there a place to order from that has great prices and and a really good warranty?

No, yes. You should consider how important that first requirement is to you. I'm going to assume that Emkay suggested the GT because of the third floor/no elevator part - it's 5 pounds lighter than the Vista (and 8 pounds lighter than the City Select). You have to decide if that weight difference is going to be the bigger determining factor for you.

the Bassinet faces him. It's lighter, less clunky, smoother on cobblestone and bumpy terrain, can take more abuse, is cheaper, and significantly easier with travel in cars, buses, and planes.

Right, it was 2 separate questions, at least the way I read it. Can the regular seat face the parent, like the Vista or Select (no). Does it have a bassinet option (yes). When comparing to the Select and/or Vista, I agree with lighter, less clunky, cheaper, and easier to travel with, but not smoother and can take more abuse.

Bottom line, if you have to shlep it up 2 flights of stairs all the time, it's not even a question - go with the GT. You won't miss not facing the baby once he/she is out of the of the bassinet.

You said this is your first child. Why are you so sure that the seat facing you is a must have? Also, remember that if you buy the bassinet, the baby is facing you in that configuration.

To me the basket is a bigger deal. One thing you can do to help mitigate that issue is to get hooks for the handlebar:

Yes but you can go up the sidewalk forwards in most strollers. The 3 wheel GT makes it a little harder. Still worth it for the mobility and ease of pushing.

I also love the 1-handed fold. But the basket is MUCH smaller than the basket in my snap n go. For that reason I used the snap n go until my baby outgrew the infant seat.

Don't know what food stroller is, but if you think that, you're not doing it right. You simply stuff the basket with the heaviest things you can find, then load the hooks till you can feel the difference (ie press down to tip up the stroller and stop when you feel a significant change in resistance). I've never had a problem with this and put quite a lot of weight on the hooks.

Post by: henche on June 28, 2016, 10:23:10 AM
Also, please stop worrying about the three wheels. Most people I see in the U.S. have been getting three-wheel strollers ("jogger" style) for like 5-10 years, and they are much easier to push and control with one hand, and perfectly stable. 

What makes a stroller tip is the weight distribution, and one wheel doesn't weigh much.

http://www.babyjogger.com/product/city-mini-gt/

Scroll down to the accessorize section. It's all sold separately (though even with the accessories it should still be cheaper than the Vista). There are 2 options for the bassinet. There are also 4 different car seat adapters, compatible with a pretty big variety of car seats. Here's the list (with the appropriate adapter listed next to each):

http://s7d2.scene7.com/is/content/GracoBaby/Baby%20Jogger/Baby%20Jogger%20CSA%20Compatabiliy%20Chart%20%282016%29%20copy.pdf

I personally don't like the setup of 1967207 (where it for a rectangle for the car seat to fit in) - more intrusive, doesn't fold nicely, more expensive, etc. The downside of that is that the Chicco, which is a favorite around here (for good reason), would be out. Other than that though, there are plenty of options, including the newer Graco car seats, Britax car seats, and Baby Jogger's own (relatively new) car seat.

If you're referring to this:
https://www.amazon.com/dp/B00GNIWSGM/
It's a 4 wheel version of the regular city mini. The biggest difference is the type of wheel. The GT has foam-filled rubber tires (as do the Select and the newer Premier) . That's what the Vista has, and it's part of what makes them all so popular. At some point they sold an upgrade kit for the 3 wheel, but it's no longer available and I don't think they ever made it for the 4 wheel.

What about the 3 wheels is so disconcerting to you?

Interesting. It only comes up on Baby Jogger's non-USA sites. And I only see it available online from Canadian sites.

Either way, it does seem interesting - checking off a fair number of boxes (4 foam filled wheels, faces either way, available bassinet and car seat attachments, one-hand fold). But it weighs more than the Vista (28.6 vs 27.5), and won't come out that much cheaper if you're buying the bassinet and bug/rain cover anyway. That kills it IMO - I'd just get a Vista instead (well, I'd get the Mini GT, but if you made me choose between the Versa GT and the Vista...).

Biggest reason is probably that it's Consumer Reports top pick. The Maxi Cosi is not even in their top 5 - though the newer Graco is their 'budget' pick.

Add item to bed bath registry.
Walk into store.
Have them print registry.
Point to item you want and have over coupon.
Pay for item and be sure to get free shipping as it's on a registry.

Just did it yesterday.
Sorry for digging up an old post:

Is this method still current?
can you still get %20
Still get the same generous return policy?
does registry change anything? just the ability to use coupon?

I bought a mountain buggy urban double, about 10 years old, for 60 buck on craigslist.   Its built to last. Downsides are: doesn't fold much, and is very "basic" (ie, no fancy parts)

Valco
Pros: separate "belly" bar,  light weight
Cons: no track record , feels " cheap"
Mountain Buggy
Pros: Narrow, strong, big wheels
Cons: heavy , air filled wheels (air loss, flats) , doesn't fold easily or flat.
City mini gt
Pros: easiest to fold , large foam filled wheels , folds flattest of all, easy to push
Cons: one "belly bar", very wide ,

We have the Mountain Buggy Duet, Looking for some experiences with newborns

We've used it in the past as-is, just lay newborn on seat. not bad. we're now looking to invest in a bassinet/parent facing options for newborn. MB makes 2 options:
Carrycot (https://mountainbuggy.com/us/Buy/carrycots/duet-carrycot-plus)(includes a rear-facing seat option) $200
Cocoon (https://mountainbuggy.com/us/Buy/carrycots/newborn-cocoon) $70
(We actually caught the carrycot a few weeks ago at walmart (https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mountain-Buggy-Carrycot-Plus-for-Duet-Flint-Carrycot-Plus-for-Duet/50533972) when they had it going for $140.)

Seems from documentation like some of the Pros/Cons of each are:
-Price
-Carrycot lasts through longer time/larger child
-Cocoon sits on seat (seems more stable than) carrycot perched on a 'clip'.
-carrycot needs separate storm-cover, not compatible with the regular one

Our questions are as follows:
-Can the carrycot be used without removing the existing seat-cloth?
-does the cocoon fit inside the regular storm-cover (https://www.walmart.com/ip/Mountain-Buggy-Carrycot-Plus-for-Duet-Flint-Carrycot-Plus-for-Duet/50533972)?
-we sometimes use a generic buggy-board (https://www.amazon.com/Englacha-Wooden-Board-Rider-Elephant/dp/B000YMBPOE) with the stroller. having a seat fully reclined (as cocoon requires) interferes with that.
Does the carrycot -in addition to sitting higher up- also sit further forward than a fully reclined seat?

-Any other things to be aware of?
-Is there likely a catch with the cheaper walmart price? or is it likely the  same item?

Not the right thread for this, but I'm too freaked out (aka traumatized) to stop myself.

Was walking down Paran a couple of hours ago, saw a mother pushing a stroller out of yesh, bumped it from sidewalk to street, and a doll went flying in to the air and fell flat on to the ground.  Then I realized it wasn't a doll...  It was extremely painful to see that happen to a baby, and it was extremely painful to see the wife's emotional/nervous breakdown.  Yes, you can blame the mother for not buckling up the kid (id assume baby was around 1 yr old, and was sleeping i think); but the bump was very small.. and (which is the reason I'm posting this) the design of the stroller was terrible.  There was almost no sides to the thing.  I know of a similar story of a lady who's baby came flying out of her stroller when they were on a bus and it stopped short.  Obviously #1 - keep your baby strapped even if you think he/she doesn't need it.  BUT, #2 - your stroller should be one where the baby sits IN it not ON it.

Sorry for the rant.. i cant get over the images of tonight

(p.s., i went over to the hatzala guy afterwards, apologized for seeming to be a hocker and asking him how's the kid, but since i saw it i needed to know and he said bh the kid was good, they just had to go do some tests to make sure)

It's great to have for the stage where you don't really want your infant in the actual stroller seat. Past that, the product itself is fine, but it's an inline, and inlines don't compare with side-by-sides IMO.

ETA: It is nice to have your infant up high and facing you, with your toddler facing forward and taking in the view. The basket is very large, but can be hard to access sometimes for larger items.

That's the main thing I meant about inline vs side by side. It's probably even slightly more comfortable when pushing straight on level ground, but once you need to maneuver, it's definitely harder. And the wheels are not what you'd find on a UBV, City Mini GT, etc - which is why I said it's fine on level ground.

What options are there for double strollers that work with Graco ClickConnect carseats?
Pretty sure most doubles will work with an adapter for the car seat. I've definitely seen it on the city mini.

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!

looking at Englacha CozyRider www.amazon.com/Englacha-2-Cozy-Rider-Black/dp/B0194QWCMY

Are they actually compatible? has anyone successfully used them together?
When the seat is attached, can you fully recline the MB seats (to lie flat for newborn)? can you attache the MB bassinet? or do they run too close to the rider seat/handlebar?

you can tell the person asking in the stroller thread i'm very happy with my donkey - if you are willing to spend the money it is definitely worth it. and it's quite narrow even as double - fits through any standard door - and as a single it's only slightly wider (possibly not even at all wider) than the uppa baby vista

wasn't so happy about the basket size but they've made it bigger since my model

I doubt you're going to find someone who has owned/tried out both. It's also not exactly a direct comparison. The MB has no second seat option - lines up better with the BJ Versa. Other than that, just watch a detailed youtube review (there are several channels that do this) for each and base your decision off that.

Never happened to me with the ZOE. Mine did break after 2 years, but unfortunately it was outside the warranty window.
