    Inglesina or Silver Cross

    So I posted about a week or so ago looking for a good umbrella stroller. I thought I was going to get the Inglesina Swift or Urbe but I came across the Silver Cross Micro. Does anyone know much about this stroller, is it good?

    TIA

    Re: Inglesina or Silver Cross

    My sister has a silver crosss umbrella stroller that is pink and black. It is very similar to my Maclaren Volo, it doesn't recline but has a cushier seat pad. She really likes it. We live in different states but the last time I was out for a visit she had her silver cross and I had my Volo and they seemed pretty similar. I ended up pushing my niece in her stroller some when dh and I took both the younger kids while my sister and her husband took the older two kids on rides. Anyway, it seemed to steer well. I can't rememeber the name of it though, I think it was the Micro or something similar to that. She bought it at BRU, I don't know if they still carry it though, she bought it 2 years ago.

    I own a Silver Cross Mini in the Ascot pattern. (not micro). When I purchased it, I was comparing between the two models and I decided against the Micro because it was too light and not sturdy enough for what dh and I would put it through. I've never regretted our purchase. I think the difference between the two was 2lbs - a reclinable seat - 35lb vs 40lb limit, & slightly taller for the Mini. 6'4 dh was able to push it without killing his back or stepping all over the wheels.

    I've owned it for over 2 1/2 years and I have no complaints.

    Here's dd in it when she turned 3 years old and 39-40" and 35ish pounds. She's really leggy.

    We've used it since, but I don't have any recent photos. Apologies

    Oh and it's been heavily loaded with STUFF -- probably around 70lbs worth and it just gets harder to push... no bending. It's a really good frame.

    I realize you weren't asking about the Mini, but I hope I provided some helpful info for you
