    Re: Baby Jogger City Series or Bob revolution?

    What type of terrain did you plan to use the stroller on & what types of activities (i.e. walking or jogging)?

    I had the City Series & I loved it, it was my everything stroller. I used it on our local greenway trails and it did great, but it is not made for jogging, I could do a very slow jog but that was it.

    So if you want a stroller you can jog with then definitely the Bob; plus with the 16" wheels in the back it will handle better on rougher terrain.

    Re: Baby Jogger City Series or Bob revolution?

    funny cause I was gonna post about just this. LOL. Lovinwaves, you out there? I think she has both. I really think I am leaning towards the BOB. The only downfall is the one I found on sale only reclines 45* where as some people were mentioning one that reclines to 70*. I am not sure the difference. If it is a different model or not

    I just got an mesa orange BOB and LOVE it! I've only used it twice.. once on a bumpy, tourist filled sidewalk and once on the hiking trails near our house.. was awesome in both situations. I LOVE the canopy on it & the shocks are amazing!

    I have a Baby Jogger City Series Double and some of the great things about are:
    1. Sun canopy is huge and very functional.
    2. Seat accomidates tall kids. My 4.75 y/o who is 23" when in seated position (from her hip to top of her head) and she can comfortably sit in the stroller!
    3. Very easy to push and maneuver even in tight spaces!
    Good Luck!

    There is no difference in the recline between last years Rev. and the 08'

    Re: Baby Jogger City Series or Bob revolution?

    Well I got the BOB revolution in the chocolate and pink. I tried it at the store and loved it. The sales lady was very knowledgeable and steared me away from the baby jogger city series since we sometimes rollerblade. She said that this one is the only one that will handle jogging or rollerblading and has a swivel wheel. It pushed like a dream in the store and the sun shade is HUGE!!!!!! It reclines a full 70 degrees. The bob website says the 2008 model goes 70 degrees and the 2007 model only goes 45 degrees. Here is a pic. of the one I got.
