    Default Second hand twin pram recommendations

    Looking at some twin prams on gumtree for my 2.5 yo & 8 week old. Will be using it for shopping & walking 6km ona regular basis. It also needs to fit into the boot of a mazda 3.
    These are the prams im choosing between:
    Phil & teds e3 twin $150 well used & needs a small repair to wheel
    Mountain buggy twin 5yo $200
    08 baby jogger city elite $450
    Baby jogger city mini $275
    Any recommendations would be greatly appreciated.
    Thanks

    Sorry I haven't owned these but I would stay away from the phil and teds due to its excessive use

    Mountain Buggies are great for walking! I put a collective 30+kg of kiddies in it and it's still great to push . I've got a double urban, love it!

    I have a city mini - I think it's fantastic. It folds pretty flat, easy to steer, easy to fold

    I found the city mini a little too wide for the shops but great otherwise.
    I've ordered a mountain buggy duet this time since it's narrower & will convert back to a single

    I have a city mini and it's good for footpath walking but not great for dirt or grass and the wheels may wear fairly quickly if you are walking 6km a day. I would choose either the city elite or MB just for the bigger tyres. The elite I think is still a smallish fold, any way you can look at them in baby shops before buying secondhand?

    I love the way the BJs fold! Very jealous because of the dicking around we do with the bugaboo!

    mountain buggy's are my fave, but I doubt the one you're looking at will fit in your Mazda. The mountain buggy Duet probably would though which is what I have. It's a great walking pram.

    While I was waiting for my Duet I borrowed a Phil and Ted's and they are awful to walk with if you're doing an actual exercise type walk, because the 2nd baby is right where you walk, and you can't take big proper steps, especially when going down a hill.
