    -reversible
    -air or foam filled tyres that are decent size
    -front wheels that can be locked/unlocked depending if I'm in city or country
    -suitable from birth (fully reclined or bassinet/seat in one)
    -option for 2nd seat

    Any ideas? Seems the bebe is out cos of wheels. But I'm also thinking the valco rebel q air has everything.
    I had my quinny tyres foam filled as we lived in port hedland for a few years. The tyres still went flat and couldn't handle the gravel.

    Yep rebel q is reversible.

    Ahh I dont know what to do about wheels, seems air are the best for rough services but go flat. And maybe foam filled go flat? But the other ones aren't good for rough roads?

    Sorry I'm on mobile and hard to read bad, which pram did u suggest?

    it really seems to tick all the boxes i am looking for - it does seem a bit puffy though like tis hard to clean but ihaven't seen it in real life yet sohard to tell.

    I am thinking of the air tyres because i live in country. And maybe if they puncture alot I can look at getting them filled

    How is the storage on the valco one? It looks very hard to get into?
