I have narrowed it down to 4 but am open to other suggestions.
I looking for in order of importance
-suitable from birth (either with bassinet attachment or reclines/adjusts safely)
-reversible seat that can face inward or outward
-option for 2nd seat in future
-do the job of a very basic stroller in the future ie. lightweight/small-ish (I don't want to have to buy a basic mclaren/stroller for quick trips)
-I like a 4 wheeler I think
BTW - I am getting quite into wrapping, so will hopefully be carrying bub most of the time but assume a decent pram is always used.
My options are
1. Maclaren Techno XT (holds 25kg, weighs 7kg, 28cm wide)
2. Bebe RVerse XLR (holds 17kg, weighs 13.7kg, 65cm wide)
3. BJCS (hold 20kg, weighs 12kg, 66cm wide)
4. Steelcraft Strider 4 plus (holds 20kg, weighs 12kg, 37cm wide)
What do you think I should get?

Which pram should I get?

How far apart do u plan on having babies?
The strider 4 doesnt fit my toddler, he is too tall and is 3 in a couple of weeks.
The only pram with second seat option to fit my hefty bug is the phil and teds verve.

oh and does anyone know if the maclaren can be reversed? I don't think it can?

I just got the strider plus four haven't used it yet. It isn't light weight but it had everything bar the kitchen sink for good $$. I got the pram, second seat and infant carrier (car seat) for $650 brand new. It has a huge basket, comes with drink holders, sun mesh, water protector.
I love that the baby can face me and away. Love that it had wheels not tyres as my last pram (quinny) would get punctures all the time.
I suggest you stop people and ask them how they view their pram. I did this heaps. I also have a dd already and took her to try out the prams before deciding.
If you r having more kids think long term.

Should be fine then, the thing that turned me off the strider was how wide it was! It seems massive to me!

I don't know those specific prams but brand-wise we've had steel craft and maclaren and maclaren is FAR superior of those two.
We also had the Phil and teds with toddler seat which was useful for a little while but now the eldest walks and the younger goes in the maclaren and it the eldest can't walk I've got the ergo in the basket underneath and can carry the
