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 saw that the bugaboo website has an outlet section with the old model for about $600.
Worth trying for the C3 if I can get the old model for cheaper?

It's not about the quantity of your posts.  It's about the quality.

ALOL totally not the type. She didn't like driving a truck and the handle didn't go low enough for her

Better in every possible way.  And it's really not that much bulkier than the Bugaboo.
Save your time, I don't answer PM. Post it in the forum and a dedicated DDF'er will get back to you as soon as possible.

I agree that its better and tried to convince my wife, but she's really on the small size and the ub handle doesn't go low enough for her and its just not comfy to push. Imagine pushing a carriage with your wrists bent up...
And in our test drives she felt like it was a truck...more so than any other carriage we tried.
So now its between the moms & pops and bugaboo

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.
