The biggest issue: The straps on the harness don't have much adjustablity in them, they dont retread threw a higher hole in the stroller and they just aren't long enough, especially when you put your baby in a snow suit or jacket. Our daughter is about 30 inches tall at 9 months and 21 lbs and in her snow suit the straps are way too short to go over her shoulders. Even without it they are pretty much at max capacity.
Other problems that are more minor but still annoying: The basket is terribly small, as in good luck getting a diaper bag into it. When the seat is reclined the basket is just unreachable, thus making it useless most of the time. This leads to the next problem, if you have any weight on the back handle (say for example the diaper bag you cant fit in the tiny unreachable basket) and take your baby out it will immediatly flip the whole stroller over. There needs to be a bit more weight in the front of the stroller to counter act this. The other flaw is the wheels have zero tread (as in they are hard plastic that looks like it has tread marks but really they arent there) if you have the brakes on while you are on a bus or train you still need to hold onto the stroller otherwise it will still slide away because it has no traction.
It's frustrating because these are all minor things that could easily be fixed but they make it sort of a love hate relationship every time I have to use it. On the plus side the canopy is fantastic, it is really light, and the shoulder strap is handy.
The best stroller out of the ones I have (I have Orbit, Bob Ironman, Instep Suburban Safari, Uppababy G-Luxe, Maclaren Twin Techno, and Baby Jogger City Mini) is the Baby Jogger City Mini. It's light enough without being flimsy. Super easy to fold. Handles corners and bumps super well. And it's comfortable for my son.
I bought the G-Luxe because this is the lightweight stroller with the best canopy. If I want this kind of canopy in a Maclaren I would be looking at 15 lbs or more in Techno XT or XLR. Then I may as well use BJCM which is the best all-around stroller except when I am going up and down the stairs at the subway station with a kid in it.
I have the G-Luxe for two and a half months now. The back wheels already got replaced twice due to broken brake levers. The customer service is great, but I am disappointed at the quality of the stroller. I also started having squeaky wheels.
The rain cover for this stroller is also horrible. It doesn't fit G-Luxe properly. You can't secure the bottom part of the cover. Whenever you get indoor, you have to take the rain cover out completely . You can't just roll it up because the material is not that flexible and the side straps make it difficult to do so. BJCM and Maclaren have much better rain cover design.
G-Luxe vs Maclaren:
G-Luxe has the better canopy and more accessible basket but everything else Maclaren is a much better stroller. Maclaren has a solid feel to it and it is obviously more durable. Maclaren is so easy to steer. G-Luxe doesn't even come close in this department especially when you actually put a kid in it. G-Luxe seat is very narrow compared to Triumph. With a winter coat on, my kid's shoulders and arms are spilling out of the seat area.
For now I am packing the G-Luxe back in the box as a backup if I ever break my Triumph and BJCM.
