It is so well-designed and versatile. If you check the website, they are holding a competition to win a free BOB so it would be extra sweet if it was free!

We are trying to decide on a stroller. Will we need more than one, or can a jogger serve as an all purpose stroller as well?

I am interested in the second seat directly behind the first seat, so the stroller doesn’t get too wide.

Thanks!

We use it for trails, roads, parks, beaches – everywhere. I definitely like having the swivel wheel option since we don’t use it exclusively for jogging. (A friend of mine has the ironman and now the dualie and said the revolving wheel is key) It is great at outdoor markets and my son loves chilling out in it too! So easy to collapse and so light and easy to steer.

Although I really liked the BOBs, it was a bit out of our budget and I coincidentally saw a mom at our airport with the Tike TEch 16″ wheel stroller. She allowed me to test it out and I loved its ride and comfort. I was very impressed with the amount of storage this stroller has. It’s balance was impressive as well. It also has a great sun sheild/ net and the all weather cover is included in the purchase. AND the price point hit the mark as well!

I did read epinions, Consumer Reports and as many reviews as I could find about the stroller and I have had ours for about 2 months now and have absolutely no complaints with the stroller at all. Best of all, with a special online, I was able to get the stroller, all weather sheild, air-travel case (we fly a lot), Drink sling, and stroller light (for twighlight / early morning runs & visibility) for under $250 USD.

PS – -My design suggestion – I used funky ribbon to cover the grip bar for the baby so I wouldn’t have to worry about my toddler picking at or teething on the foam padding. ;) GL!

As mentioned previously, the first question you need to ask yourself is what do you want the stroller for? Are you looking for a stroller to do major running? Or do you just want something for a light jog around the park? Are you looking for something that you will take other places, or is the stroller primarily for running?

someone already metnioned http://www.joggingstroller.com
they are very helpful, which is great. you can email & call them.

I personally love the bobs. I run quite a bit, so i got the stroller that doesn’t swivel… if you run alot, the swivel isn’t great (although I’m told you can lock it.)

good luck with what you choose.

One of the articles is a complete stroller guide and I found it very helpful. After three kids and three cities I thought I’d seen them all…apparently I haven’t! Check out the guide–it’s fabulous.

They have live help that allows you to instantly call or email chat to help pick the right stroller for you, and their site carries strollers in varied prices, with many reviews. I have purchased a Dreamer Design single jogger which I liked, and BOB Ironman Duallie from them. I love my BOB, and personally wouldn’t want the swivel wheel as I am a serious runner who uses the stroller on asphalt as well as on trails. I have a different stroller for shopping, zoo, etc. They have free shipping, and price matched another internet site for my latest purchase. If you are hesitant to buy over the internet, go test a model at a brick and mortar store, and then see if you get a better price online. I have invested in my joggers, but use one daily, and LOVE it!

I got the revolution duallie – it has the option of a stationary front wheel or the 360 swivel. I love it for my 8 mo old and 2.5 year old.

We use ours for our dirt/gravel “river” (we live in AZ so that means dry riverbed) path walks, as well as running. We’ve taken it on hikes, beach trips, and camping trips. My husband, who hates all baby gear and spending lots of money for all the “stuff” that comes along with a child, LOVES our BOB sport utility stroller. He will sell anyone on it. Friends have the Revolution, which they love, too. We bought ours online and just compared around for the best deal, including shipping costs.

Whatever brand you choose, though, I concur with the others and don’t go cheap! Have fun!

In a nut shell, I interpret practical questions (like stroller questions) this way: “As both a professional designer and an actual mother, what stroller would you recommend?” or “How do you see strollers through the lens of design?”

When readers just want straight-up stroller advice, they go to places like Consumer Reports instead of to Design Mom.

Which is pretty much everything.

This question about strollers is essentially a question about design: which models have the most efficient/functional design, which models look the best, which models have been designed to fit certain price ranges and incomes — that all translates to “which jogging stroller is the best?”

I’m glad you wrote this comment. I’ve got an essay in the works on the meaning of the word “design” and how it’s used and even over-used these days. Now I’m anxious to finish the essay. I’ll be glad to hear what people think when they’ve read it.
