Does the Job

I'll tell you why I bought this--it's an old model, but for the price there was nothing comparable to it. Basically it's the same as the mid-range MacLaren strollers, but maybe a couple pounds heavier. I actually could care less about the weight so long as it's not too heavy--and since it's not too light I don't feel like it will tip as easily.To buy something new equivalent to this, like a MacLaren or one of the newer Britax, it would have cost $150+. So here at albeebaby I was able to find a discontinued model that works very well.It's basically as good as the others, with a couple things I don't like:The wheels don't roll perfectly smooth. It's way better than what we used before, but to get picky, it's slightly rickety like the wheels don't all match up perfectly. Still, it rolls fairly effortlessly and is easy to turn. That said, it's nothing compared to their new B-Agile, which is frankly the smoothest rolling stroller out there. But it's almost 3x as much, and bigger too. We wanted an umbrella stroller so this size is perfect.The other thing i will nitpick about is the canopy. Let's just face it, it's very high for smaller babies (mine is less than a year old right now), and the canopy does pretty much nothing except for when the sun is completely above our heads. Not good. Look at the B-Agile, where the canopy has a few stages, and it can really come down to block the sun frontally. But again, at $70, I can't really complain too much, right? I'm very happy with my purchase.
