For the price, it's more than great!
on May 31, 2012
Just purchased this stroller. I've been dying for a jogger ever since I had my first, and now that we have 2, I finally got one! I purchased this stroller because I didn't want to have to buy 2 double strollers: a normal tandem one for shopping and narrow areas, and a side-by-side jogger. Unless you're willing to pay upwards of $450, tandem joggers just don't seem to be an option, except for this one. So, for the price, and ease of not having to play musical strollers or having to find a place to store the extra (we live in Texas, the garage isn't an option due to the creepy crawlers), this is beyond great!
Here are my lists of pros and cons:
- Very tall handle-bar: I am 5'11" and my husband is 5'7". It works well for both of us, but especially for me.
- The child sitting in back cannot reach down into the cargo area, such as I've seen with other tandem strollers, causing headaches for the mothers.
- It fits my Chicco Keyfit-22 car seat with room for my rather tall 20-month-old in the front seat. Note for owners of the Chicco Keyfit-30: I don't believe it would fit the Keyfit-30 very well with a toddler in the front seat. The Keyfit-30 sticks out much further, and your toddler would likely be hitting their head on the back of the car seat.
- When attaching a car seat, it has an adapter bar as well as a strap, which holds the seat securely.
- It has a very smooth ride.
- The parent tray has 2 cup-holders + a covered compartment in the middle.
- There is no handbrake. However, it comes with a wrist strap, so the stroller doesn't get away from you while jogging.
- It is rather heavy. I'll have to get used to hoisting it into the SUV, but I need an arm workout anyway! LOL (Note: I've never owned any other double strollers, so it may actually be light for a double, but I'm just used to my single. I really don't know. You'll have to judge for yourself.)
- The child tray is kind of rickety, and when folded, it sticks off the front of the stroller quite far. We just figured we'll leave it off most of the time, if we're going to be taking it in and out of the car frequently.
- When folded, the back wheels make it kind of bulky. However, they are super-easy to remove. So if you have limited space, you can simply take them off and lay them flat.
I hope the info helps!
