I tried but I just don't like it at all.
I have a Baby city jogger Versa and bought it online without trying because they were discontinued and no stores had any to try.
I'm sure it's a great pram if you're about 6 - 10 inches taller than me, but I struggle with it and my back is not what it used to be.
Anyway, whinge over.
I'm looking for a light weight stroller than won't cost the earth because DH will divorce me if I spend too much.
What do you have

Yeah I'm definitely going to get rid of it but I'll need a replacement first.
I now have two prams to go on Gumtree.
The other is a double Phil and Teds with all the trimmings, storage , rain cover etc etc
That's too big for me too.

We started with the Stokke Xplory V3. Which is a beautiful pram and the height is amazing BUT it's really heavy and was difficult for me to get in and out of the car after a c section.
We then went to a bugaboo bee plus (now bee3) and I was very happy with that. It isn't the lightest on the market but I had no trouble getting it in/out of the car. The handle is adjustable, I'm only 5'2 and have had no problems with it.
I would go to a baby store, DJ's etc... and try a few out before buying this time. Make sure you test the opening closing as some are crazy complicated!

I have a Bumbleride Indy and love it! It's also reasonably priced, IMO.

Interesting. I have a baby jogger city mini GT which I love. I'm tiny (158cm), but walk with it almost every day with no trouble. It's 7kg (I think) 1 hand fold so I have been known to have DD on my hip while folding & packing the pram into the car boot. DH is almost 6 foot, he also loves that pram. The handlebar adjusts up/down very easily.
I'm considering buying a second hand phil & teds double but now I'm worried I'll struggle with it being so short! What's the issue you have with it OP?

rosey82, the real issues I have is with taking them up and down for shopping trips and school runs. They're both quite big when folded and I also only have a small car. While up and mobile they are both great prams, practically push themselves.
My poor back is suffering and the weight of the pram when folded means I belt it off my shins almost every time I'm lifting it.
I'm getting old, I've really lost a lot of body strength this last year.
DD is 15 months now so a smaller stroller would do us I think.

I love mine; maybe a small umbrella stroller would be better in your case though.

If you are not having any more kids then you will only need a pram for maybe another 18? months or so. Maybe a cheaper stroller like this will do? http://www.babybunting.com.au/joie-n...-mulberry.html
I have no idea what it is like but I figure if it reclines, is high enough to fit a 3?yo (if needed), and has somewhere to put shopping it may work.
You could spend more and get a Bugaboo Bee etc but if there will be no more kids it may not be worth it.
