    Default Bugaboo bee

    Are there any bee owners out there? I'm trying to decide between the bee and the chameleon and the moment. The bee seems smaller and more lightweight, which is what I'd prefer, but I am worried whether I'd be able to walk across grass with it.

    Um it's a bit more uneven than that, kept fairly short but there a few dirt patches throughout (I live near Byron bay).
    How about on gravel, some of my footpaths are sides of roads as opposed to concrete.

    Love my bee too!!

    No problems with it on roads. Haven't driven it through grass yet though.

    It's very lightweight and practical. Steers like a dream!

    I think gravel will be fine. The suspension is great.

    ETA: To clarify, the Cammy would be better at uneven surfaces, but in my experience the Bee is adequate for most.

    I have a bee and I LOVE IT! Its small, lightweight, easy to open close, suspensions are great and it looks awesome!
    I take my bee to the park and its fine on grass, I dont think it would be great for long walks on grass but if you're just going to the park or walking around near the beach it's perfectly fine.
    We're having bub #2 in a few months and I'm totally devasteted I'll have to get a new pram

    I love the Bee. Definitely a workhorse.

    Ours has seen more than its fair share of uneven surfaces and handled them brilliantly.

    Can you use a carrier for new bug and keep using the bee?
