I was stroller-obsessing a couple of days ago, and started ogling the Bob, Phil & Ted's, and some Bugaboo something or other. Some of those contraptions are really impressive. (But the price tags had me wondering how long I could get away with baby wearing.)
I've had both the Bugaboo gecko and frog, and I also have the BOB Revolution (has both fixed and swivel front wheel option settings). Let me tell you, if you're going to shell out the cash, the Bob is the way to go. Comparison wise, it is much lighter and can literally be steered with a single finger. The large wheels on it also make it maneuverable in just about any seasonal situation. I remember one time in particular with my Bugaboo...it was fall and I was walking in the park. Some leaves got jammed under the wheels and acted like I'd thrown an emergency brake on...except I didn't want know it'd happened and was still briskly walking. It nearly turned the stroller over with my infant in it. Scary, and after that I went to the BOB...so much better! My only complaint is that the handle isn't adjustable for taller operators, like dh. It's difficult for him to run with. My other complaints were the footbed and really long jogging tether, but those issues have been corrected in the new models.
Disagree....if you're going to go Bugaboo....get the Cameleon. Best stroller ever. And believe me... I have tried them all (I get to review them for my website). The Frog and Bee aren't as nice. The Bugaboo Donkey (the double) sucks..so don't even bother with it. The Cameleon is good for all terrain, but it's not really for jogging. I miss it...and sorta wish I hadn't sold it.
The BOB jogging stroller is probably the best though (of the jogging strollers out there).
I've never pushed the chameleon. I'd be interested in feeling it maneuver. I much prefer having one now that I can walk or job with- disliked that I couldn't do that with the Bugaboo, and it really scared the tar out of me when it tried to topple with the leaves.
Since you review- have I missed any of the changes on the new BOB revolution? Is it just me, or did the price go up quite a bit as well?
Also-- what are your thoughts on double joggers? I love my Bob, but as a Duallie I think it's so wide it does't fit through doorways. If not joggers, what are the best duallie strollers in general? We probably won't get one since DS is outgrowing that stage, but just something to think about.
