-Adjustable handle: I am much shorter than my husband so the adjustable handle was a must.
-Straight: we have had no issues with the stroller pulling one direction or the other. It has always traveled straight on course for us.
-Adjustable canopy: the shade is fantastic and a must have. It can be unzipped and detached for additional coverage. It sometimes collapses on its own while running, but you can fix that problem by unzipping it.
-Parent tray: great for its musical abilities. You can play music while running, but the parent tray only holds 2 small bottles and weighs about 2 lbs by itself so we don't use it.
-Pedometer: great and useful, but unfortunately it does not come with a time or a clock.
-Seat and straps: nicely padded and my 3 month old seems quite comfortable and they all wipe off very easily. It is very easy to recline the seat when he falls asleep without waking him up. It's a smooth transition from sitting to lying down.
-Storage space: there are all sorts of storage spaces and the mesh bag by the handles it great to hold my cell phone, water bottle and keys.
-Wheels: good size and easily removable. The pump that comes with the stroller isn't great, but it is just enough if I need a quick fill up when I am out.
-Fixed front wheel: stable and perfect for running as it should be on a jogger. It took us little time to learn steering the jogger.
-Ride & breaking system are great.
-Weight: lighter than other joggers (after doing some research online)
-Length: this stroller is not super long like some of the Schwinn joggers can be
-Consumer Reports: this stroller is one of the top rated and has great reviews.Read more ›
If you are not a serious runner, but just want to walk or slow jog, and want the all-terrain wheels and stability of a jogging stroller, then get one with a swivel wheel. You will be happier with it. There are even models with a front wheel that swivels for walking, but can be locked for running. The Schwinn Turismo Swivel is worth a look if that's your preference. It is similar in price to the Jeep model. For full speed running, you can't beat the stability of rigidly locked front wheel though.
Soooooo ... here's the info:
1. It's GOOD sized. I have a small, four-door sedan ... folded, it doesn't fit in my trunk. However, it has an INCREDIBLY simple mechanism for removing and replacing the 2 back wheels. I throw the whole thing in the back seat of my car.
2. The adult tray hardly weighs anything and fits my aluminum water bottles splendidly. Maybe they improved the design after receiving some of the other feedback? The manufacture date on my stroller was November of 2010.
3. The odometer is awesome ... has a heavy-duty cable that runs along the frame of the stroller to its sensor on the front wheel frame. A magnet fastened to one of the front wheel spokes gives it the readings.
4. The speaker for the ipod is not very loud, but it's RIGHT behind where the baby's head goes ... so I'm not sure you'd want it to be any louder. It's not an ipod DOCKING STATION ... it's like a headphone plug-in, so you could use any mp3 player, cell phone, CD player, or if you were really old-school, a WALKMAN. :) There's also a decent amount of room in the "holder" area for keys, chapstick, a little hand lotion or sanitizer. The top snaps shut once everything is inside.
********** NOTE: it takes *** FOUR *** TRIPLE A (AAA) *** batteries *****************
5. There seemed to be some confusion about an air pump in some of the reviews ... this model does NOT come with an air pump. Just to clarify.
6. Smooth, smooth, smooth ... it's a nice "ride"
7. The adjustable handle is really nice and comfortable, however, it does have give to it (i.e.Read more ›
Performance wise, I keep a 13min 2 mile time for the Army, and I use this for interval training to keep my athleticism up for JiuJitsu, and longer runs for body fat control. Thus, I use this for both speed interval training (Tabata protocol) and slower 4-6 mile runs. I've had this for about 3.5 years with total use averaging about once weekly. It's been across trails, beaches (interval training in sand), and streets. It has taken my daughter from 6 months to 4yrs of age, and there is no reason to think she is going to outgrow it anytime soon.
When my daughter was younger, she liked to tell me to catch up to bikers on gravel trails. Her continued requests can vouch to the comfort of a then 15month old. Limitations of sprinting go without saying when pushing something in front of you, but the point is, this is a great tool if you are looking to continue serious training when you have your kid. I can't see how you could train like this safely without a fixed wheel. Speakers are as tinny as you would expect, but are great because you can hear traffic, but still get some music. The bright orange with 360 degree 3M or plastic reflection is preferable to the later blue model for poorly lit early morning training. Handbrake works fine and rubberized handlebar keeps a sweat and sunscreen grip. The pedometer is a gimmick, but these days smartphones and GPS make it unnecessary.
I am not necessarily against spending money on a quality stroller (her "mall" stroller is a bugaboo). But, I didn't spend alot of money up front on a jogger because I knew the kind of abuse I was going to put it through, and thought I would end up using and chucking whatever I bought. However, like I said, 3.5yrs and still going strong. Outstanding product. Highly recommend.
