    Joovy Groove Ultralight or Something else.....

    I have time before I need a single so I am doing my homework. I want a lightweight stroller that is more comfortable for my kids than the BJ City Micro (original one) that we have. I need something lightweight, with a big shade, and an easy fold. I was looking at the Groove and then the Groove Ultralight but I wanted to ask the stroller gurus for ideas. Bonus it would be under $200 since I have to sell my like new BJCMD in the spring to fund it.

    DS1 - 9, DS2 - 6, DS3 - 3, and DS4- due September 2016

    Uppababy G-Luxe would work well. I see them on Amazon Warehouse under $200.

    Do you like the BJCMD fold? Or would you prefer a traditional umbrella fold? Ideas that come to my mind:

    Downsizing to a single BJCM
    Valco Snap or Snap 4 (four wheels, similar fold to BJCM)
    Cybex Onyx (or Ruby if you don't need a full recline)
    Baby Jogger Vue (not released yet)

    I think I remember reading in other threads that your littlest likes to be worn, or needs to see you at all times...if I'm remembering correct and I was in your shoes, I'd wait for the Baby Jogger Vue. It really looks like an awesome design and you could easily transform it from a parent facing umbrella for the little guy to a front facing when your older needs a ride.

    Here's a link to Baby Gizmo's review on Youtube:

    ETA: If you decide you want something more "full featured", but still lighweight and can spend a little more, you might want to look at the Ingelsina Avio or new for 2014 Trilogy. The Trilogy will have a reversible seat as well.
