Also, I don't have the problem with the wobbly front wheel some have complained about (read the tip below).
- Extremely smooth operation
- Kids LOVE to ride in it -- especially when I run over bumps!
- Seats seem very comfortable
- Seats are adjustable from a slight recline to full recline by adjusting a pull strap (very easy to adjust), so kids can take a nap if needed
- Each seat has a mesh side pocket for snacks, etc.Read more ›
My favorite thing about it is that it's SO easy to push, even with one hand and 70 pounds of kids inside. The large wheels run very smoothly. I've pushed both kids around for 10 hours at a time at Disneyland without any issues on my end.
It is a MUST to have the lock/unlock front wheel feature--there are times when you need to use one or the other. In general, I think the faster you push or the more unbalanced the two kids are in weight, the more you will need to lock the front wheel. Fantastic storage on three levels (upper, middle, lower) and I appreciate the two cup holders. The fact that the canopy can swivel all the way from top to bottom (unlike our Peg Perego's) is also a huge plus.
There are two reasons I'm giving it 4 stars instead of 5:
1. I do not like having a stroller or carseat that has a covering which cannot be removed and washed in the washing machine. With two kids in this stroller every time it's used, it gets messy to the point where wiping it with a sponge is completely useless.
2. The wheel-to-wheel width seems to be just about 1/2 to 1 inch wider than a standard retail door frame. I've had to bypass certain stores simply because I couldn't get the stroller inside the door! If it was slightly less wide (like the width of a wheelchair?), it would be perfect.
All in all, this is our fourth stroller purchase (single or double) and it's right up there with our expensive Bugaboo Frog in terms of ease of use. We love it.
To fix the issue with the front wheel there are two areas to adjust that will require you to tighten from time to time.
This is usually overlooked. There are five screws that remove the plastic kick cover just over top the front swivel wheel. Remove this to expose the large bolt that secures the swivel wheel and tighten slowly so that all the play is gone from the swivel wheel. It may feel like the bolt is really tight already but you can tighten it more. Do not over tighten so that the swivel wheel has resistance to turn. If this comes loose frequently purchase Locktite from your local hardware store, put Locktite on the threads of the bolt then re-secure the bolt.
Adjust the front tire inner axle nuts. These are the inner most pair of bolts on the axle, there should be no play side to side but not so tight that the wheel does not spin freely on the axle. It should spin without resistance.
If you don't feel this is a job you cannot handle any local bike shop should be able to complete either of these tasks for you in less then 10 minutes. It really is that easy.
This small maintenance will keep this stroller in great working operation for as long as you need it.
Hope this helps everyone extend the life of this great stroller.
