One front wheel strollers?

Postby JFK07 » Tue Oct 02, 2007 10:56 am

I am wondering how well one front wheeled strollers are compared to two front wheels? I live on a island surrounded by beach/ocean-what strolleris best for sand?
It's been 15 yrs since I had a baby-I remember the dreaded stroller wheel locking up and getting stuck/not being very easy to open and close-sure hope the are better now??!!!

I have the Jeep Liberty Urban Terrain stroller, and it's GREAT! It would work SO much better on sand because it's not wheels like regular strollers, but it's got actual tires, so they wouldn't get stuck or be hard to push in the sand (we use ours on a farm- in the dirt, mud, etc- all the time).

I second that. The three wheelers are so much easier to manouver than the four wheelers.

if you dont need a jogger this one is really really nice. lots of great options for a great price. i have the 4 wheeled one and a good friend has this one. Both a really nice and go great over uneven terrain. she got this one b/c she has sand trails near her house and it works great. I have more urban use so i picked the 4 wheeled.

I had a Jeep 3 wheeler and thought it was great. It was tippy but handled great.... until I got my Mountain Buggy Urban Double. The four wheel air tires are SO MUCH BETTER! It's much more stable than a 3 wheeler. But between choosing between air tires and plastic wheels.... Air tires all the way! I've actually started hating my other strollers! I'd take my MBUD all the time if it wasn't so big. And it is overkill at the mall.

I'm lookin' @ one-wheeled fronts & I've registered for the one at BRU that kinda looks like a jogger, but it's considered an umbrella or lightweight stroller, I believe. I forget the brand, but I think it's the Everest or Expedition model and it has a button to "turn off" the straight wheel feature when you wannna make a turn. I believe the jogger-type wheels would be best for sand & a setting that you can "turn off" the "turner" so the wheel will ONLY go straight in the sand & that's makes it better for maneuvering in like sand or grass or uneven/soft surfaces. HTH! ;o)

I live in Vancouver so its mountainy and beachy and I have to Zooper boogie and it is great since it is an jogger/ all terrain. I would definitely recommend a 3 wheeler than a 4

We have this stroller and took it to the beach a couple weeks ago it works like a dream in the sand and also was GREAT walking on the bike trail. The ride was so smooth for Alex :)

ETA: it also can be changed to have either fixed wheel or turning wheel..I guess the fixed wheel is for actually driving..I use mine with the wheel free to turn :)

Another amazing option is the Baby Jogger brand City Mini....

I have a BOB and love it too, but the City Mini is much lighter, and honestly the easiest stoller there is to fold on the market (I've tested them all it feels like!!) and I think I better "everyday" 3 wheel stroller. My friend has one and uses her car seat in it very well, too, for her small baby. I'd say all the way around City Mini is better for everyday, and the BOB is better for more rugged use. Good luck!

I really want a Zooper Boogie, but as far as I know they may not make them anymore. I'm in Calgary and for the life of me I can't find a store that sells them. Where did you get yours?
