Sorry if I sound like I'm arguing, that's definitely not my intention. I found the price of the Maclaren exorbitant for what it is and actually ended up preferring the Steelcraft stroller that my mum keeps in her boot. Neither are the type of pram that I would consider if walking a lot, and definitely not up hill. I just can't see the difference with the one you posted.

If you are looking at spending $350, i would seriously consider the city mini. I too had a heavy pram that was just a pain in the butt so went on a search for something a heap lighter. City mini ticked all the boxes and is still going strong yrs later. I looked at strollers and found them flimsy regardless of price. My almost 4 yr old still fits in the city mini and is my everyday stroller for my 2 yr old. Best of luck

Never spent money on a pram until the last one, how disappointing that was...
But the money is already spent so as a trade in for that I want a decent stroller, not one I may as well be carrying on my back while going uphill to school every day.
The G-luxe is very easily manoeuvred, to me it felt like a good pram but in stroller form. Which I prefer, I just prefer small, compact and TWO handles. I hate bars on a pram.
I would still be hesitant to pay $500 for it now though. Just because DD would need it only for another 2 yrs tops, but if she was a newborn I'd buy it, as was my intentions at the time but Uppababy had other plans.

Have you tried it in person to be sure its exactly what you want and you for sure wont be disappointed.?
Ive done plenty of pram buying and selling to suit my needs at that time.
Cheap steelcraft pram, buggaboo cameleon, steelcraft stroller, strider compact. Then finally the baby jogger city mini.
The city mini is by far my most favourite of the whole bunch.
The one pull folding mechanism, seat size, weight and so easy to push.
Wish id found it sooner so i couldve used for longer

I would clean up/take pics of current prams. Put them up on Gumtree/BSS page. Buy new pram. Tell DH that you are selling the inapproriate prams and buying a new one.
See if you can layby the pram on sale for a few weeks or something if you do not have spare cash now.

Oh I did, yes.
I did all the baby shops comparing them all and fell in love with that one. Originally you could get it in blue or orange or a purple shade. I was waiting to see if I was having a boy or girl before I decided on colour.
About 2-3 months later when it came time to buy Uppababy had pulled the G-luxe from it's stockists. Just bad luck.
I rang up about it because it meant I was back to square one in the hunt for a decent stroller. They said they pulled the stroller because they didn't have much interest on the Aussie market...yet here it is again.
I don't think the rep wasn't fully informed.
They must have just phased out the older model/colours before relaunching the new all black version, then just made that one colour available to Australia.

We got the Joie Mirus for a back-up pram (for the car & travel, my other pram is ridiculously heavy and only gets pushed out the front door).
It's relatively cheap for a full-sized stroller. It's lightweight, folds very simply (standing up), reclines nearly flat for snoozes, and was a breeze to travel with.
