    Default can you recommend a stroller?

    I currently have a Beema Duo for my 8mth old son. I love it but he gets annoyed as he can't sit up enough. It is also quite big, weighs about 11kgs and hogs a fair chunk of boot space. I do love a lot about it too and we have a toddler seat for when we have bubba 2. Not pregnant yet.

    I am thinking maybe I could get a stroller to use until we have bubba 2. Something a bit lighter, easier to fold, more compact and of course sits DS a bit more upright. I thought maybe around $100-$250.

    Any recommendations would be very welcome. Thanks in advance.

    I love my Maclaren quest. I think I paid $250 on eBay, brand new.

    It weighs 6kg I think.

    I love my phil & teds smart buggy but that was around $400 (I think can't remember) but my SIL loves her quicksmart stroller and you can pick them up from target pretty cheap

    I've got a maclaren, it was the cheapest model, doesn't layback. It is awesome! I've had it for 4 years and it's still perfect. It is still a really smooth ride and easy to push with my big 4 1/2 yr old.
    I paid $100 in a sale.
    I would definitely recommend one.
    I went through several cheaper brands with my girls, none lasted this well.

    I've got a bugaboo cameleon as my main pram but I also have a silver cross pop for short trips to the shops etc. It's light and very comfy for baby. It folds up nice and small. I think it was $200.

    The Baby Jogger City Mini would suit you but it's a bit more expensive. Baby Bunting have it for $349 atm which is $100 off regular price. You might be able to get a better deal somewhere using that price.

    The Steelcraft Agile is another that might suit at about $269.

    ETA. Just saw the Agile online at BabysChoice for $229 + shipping

    Steelcraft Agile? They are a decent stroller and fairly cheap..cant remember how much though. Have you tried gumtree? Lots of people sell their prams and strollers on there and a lot of the time the price is really good and they have been well taken care of

    What is the frame like on it, we looked at them but DH thought the frame look flimsy, how he got that from the video stumps me
