    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    At least I haven't really started in on wraps/carriers... yet...

    I only have 2 Solarveil ring slings, a Maya ring sling, an OTSBH padded ring sling, a Moby wrap (though I've never used that-it was given to me), and I'm planning a Boba 3G.

    Wait, maybe I have. LOL.

    Hey, we walk a LOT with babies and toddlers! It's a practical concern!

    Well, I can't fault you for the baby-carrier obsession. I just got my fourth mei tai to go with my five ring slings.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    What about the Guzzie and Gus strollers?

    I just watched this review of the 042 - http://blog.babygizmo.com/2012/06/ba...s-042-stroller

    (which, btw, you can enter to win).

    The front tires look wimpy, but the rear air ones are nice. Plus, the handle reverses so you can make the air ones in the front. Plus, it has a feature like the Stokke Xplory where you can tuck away the little wheels and pull it across sand and stuff.

    The 1+1 Gabriola looks decent, too - http://www.guzzieandguss.com/gg-11-g...red-p-107.html

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    g+g is a Vancouver company...It's the brainchild of the TJs folks. I've played with their stuff, and what they've essentially done with their products was to go through all of the best baby gear out there, do some reverse engineering, and ta-da... So I could go into the store and check out anything in person (including taking video/photos) if that's the route you want to take..but it would have to be sometime in the next 10 days

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    Hmm. Not feeling the 042 love after that review. I don't do the beach, and it sounds like for the type of "all-terrain" use I need it for, not exactly what I need. I also don't love the recline, etc. I'll enter the giveaway anyway, of course.

    Not thinking it's the stroller of my dreams, though!

    If price doesn't matter, you should get a custom made stroller.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    Wait, you can DO that?

    Really, what would that run? LOL. (Price doesn't matter much, but anything over $1500 is probably going to get me taken out and shot. LOL.)

    My friend's stroller store doesn't carry Phil & Ted's because people tend not to like them. I gave her your criteria, though, and will let you know if she comes up with anything you haven't already thought of.

    ETA: She says the Verve is a heavy push for hills. She's going to get back with me in a bit with some reccos.

    Looks to me like she's just putting custom fabric on stuff. The mechanics of the stroller are still the same...

    I'm dead serious. Find me someone who will build me my dream stroller and I'll consider it.

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    Would you consider a Bugaboo Frog? Or Chameleon? There one of each on my local classifieds. I don't know anything about these but how about this RockStar stroller? http://www.strollermama.com/rockstar-baby-stroller.htm

    Re: Anyone have a Phil & Teds Verve?

    The Bugaboos are not at all all-terrain. The Targo isn't really either. It's a nice stroller, though. Just not great for the gravel-walking and bumpy cracked streets I'll need it on.

    What I really want to find is a stroller that's my Mountain Buggy Urban Double, but a single, but with a better canopy, and four wheels for better stability. LOL.

    I love my mbud and mbus too! Have you considered the mountain buggy duet? it is a double with 4 wheels but is the same size widthwise as a single. Honestly, I don't know if it works well for bigger kids though.
