    Phil & Teds

    Does anyone know out of the classic, sport and dash if any of them have more space for the child in the back? I'm wondering about the space between the main seat and second seat. TIA!

    I have the sport and I think there is plenty of room. If you have a huge diaper bag though it cuts out on the leg room for the rear passenger. I have a Skip Hop Dash that is packed pretty full and it takes up a lot of the basket.

    I just hang the Skip Hop Spark on the side of the stroller. One strap around the handle and one around the bumper bar. I rarely have anything in the basket unless I have to tuck a shopping bag or something in there.

    Do you all like this stroller a lot? It pushes well, is it really as convenient as it seems? Your kid doesn't put up a fight to get in that little back seat?
    Do you end up kicking that back seat if you get a fast stride going while walking?

    It pushes like a dream even with 50 lbs of kid in the seats. It is very convenient: its a single when you only have one kid with you and a double when you have two. My complaint is that unless you buy the Vibe, you have to take the back seat off to fold it. I haven't had a kid fight about the back seat yet. If I'm walking more than 3.5 mph, I do have to extend my arms all the way to avoid kicking the rear seat. I am 5 ft 5 in.

    I LOVE my P&T's Sport. Kira usually walks, but it's nice to have an extra seat for when she misbehaves. The second seat is also great for storage when there isn't a kid sitting in it. Leah does put up a fight, but she does that whenever I put her in any stroller, I don't think it's limited to the back seat. I never hit my legs on the back seat, but I'm short (5'4"). I have 2 small saddle bags that attach to the sides of the stroller so that they don't take up room in the back seat when Leah's sitting there.

    Re: Phil & Teds

    Thanks for your replies!! I can't decide what to do, I thought I wanted a BJCED, but then realized this one looks sooooooo convenient. I'd like to to be very easy/compact fold.
