    I need more stroller help

    Hi everyone. I just got my joovy caboose ultra light for the zoo etc...but I would like an umbrella stroller for a spare. Times when I only have one of my little with me.

    I'd like a nice sized basket. Large canopy. Cup holder add on would be good.

    I liked the looks of the b nimble, but reviews complain about the wheels hitting the canopy when folded and getting filthy.

    I love the way joovy unbrella looks, but theirs lots of complaints of it being very tippy.

    Any advise? Thanks.

    I *love* our b-nimble, but the canopy does get dusty.. I've seen some ppl say to wrap a plastic bag around the wheels, but it hasn't bothered me enough to do that. It is our "car stroller". What about a g-luxe or g-lite?

    Re: I need more stroller help

    I have a Maclaren Triumph and it also has that issue with the wheels making the canopy dirty. Sister has a Britax Blink (I think its almost the same as the B-nimble except it cant take the infant seat) I liked the Blink better then my triumph.

    You may also want to look at one of the cybex strollers.

    Also let me know if you want me to bring my Mac, Saturday.

    Re: I need more stroller help

    Thanks ladies. I've never looked into a Mac....I will look at those. I let you know about bringing your Mac, thanks for the offer!

    This stroller won't get much use, but ever once in awhile I like something to take in somewhere quickly. It will go under my bench seats of my 12 passenger van, which is why I want unbrella.

    Off to search.

    Still trying to decide...any other thoughts on a good umbrella? Witch fold flat for a baby?

    Thanks again.

    Re: I need more stroller help

    If I liked umbrella strollers, I'd probably get a G-Luxe. Standing fold.

    If I liked umbrellas and were tall, a Cybex Onyx. Super tall handles, and it has a front harness adjuster.

    ETA: If you aren't set on an umbrella and just want a lightweight, you can look into the Valco Snap. 13 lbs, huge basket (for a lightweight), giant canopy, easy recline, folds flat. They're a bit more expensive than most umbrellas, but you can get the older ones (blue and purple) for $220.

    Thanks...I'm going to look into the snap also. I like a large basket. With 6 kids, I carry lots of junk everywhere we go, lol.

    When you say folds flat, do you mean flat like a BJCM?

    Yup, except that it folds forward instead of backward, so the seat is protected on the inside.
