Subbing! Looking for a new rig for when DS outgrows his capsule.
I have the I candy strawberry and LOVE it, it looks pretty, handles so easily in the shopping centres and seems comfy for my newborn. I got the purple colour which looks good too! Only thing I don't like is not much storage underneath and I was convinced that not having capabilities to add another seat wouldn't matter to me but not I know I defo want another baby I'm worried I shall have to replace this pram ;( obviously depends on age gap.... Does anyone know if those toddler boards can fit any pram or are they brand specific? Just for future reference...? I also have a well used second hand mountain buggy terrain as we live in a rural area so I needed something for off road, it's super smooth with its big wheels and so very light! I really like it but I don't take it anywhere so can't comment on easy if transportation etc, looking forwards to eventually jogging with this pram. The tyres on this pram will need replacing tho whereas I candy has plastic solid tyres. I candy weighs around 12 kg ish and is nifty to put up and down but does take up a good amount of boot space..
ICandy which I have.
Not a fan of Bugaboos!
Baby Jogger City Select here too. I love it!
I live rural so use it on all kinds of surfaces too and never had a problem.
I thought I wanted a bugaboo but after pushing both around babies r us the select won.
I would go for a Baby Jogger Versa or Mini if I didn't need a double pram.
I love my city select and only been using it for 5 weeks. So easy to manouvre even with one hand. Plus side is when number 2 comes along I don't need to spend a fortune on another pram just the second seat.
City select. Love it.
City select here also.... It's an awesome double pram. This morning I was pushing the pram with one hand while drinking coffee and Narnie bread with the other...
Ive had a few
Steelcraft Orbit something or other. It was great for one kid. Cheap ($180) and folded easy with a big basket
Phil and Teds Dash. It was great with two older kids (4 and 2). It was easy to push. It was heavy though, and those darn tyres kept going flat!!). I sold it because i was expecting a newbie and i didnt like the configs for a newborn, OR any of the car seats that would fit it.
Beema Duo. This is my current pram. I like that it is a double, and a cheap one ($500). It folds really easily (with both seats). It is lighter and narrower than the Strider Compact. It fits the Strider capsules with just a slot and lock (no adapter required).
I didnt like the city select because of the need to remove everything before folding (I live where it rains lots so being able to fold and stash easily and quickly was a must). Its also HUGE!! Though the size didnt translate to sitting room (my 2yo was almost too large for it). Its was also too expensive.
I didnt like the Striders due to the size and weight and the bottom child didnt look like they had enough room.
