Anyone know anything about the Teutonia T-460?

Looks interesting. Their web page kind of sucks, can't tell if it's a bucket seat or not? and are the tires actually air like the name implies? The web site doesn't say.Stroll-air?
Or the stokke. Love the height of that seat.
Yes, mainly outdoors. We won't go out in the thick of winter, but nice winter days, definitely. And it will come camping, so gravel roads and dirt. I took the Mylo camping this summer and while it was okay, the wheels aren't really made for the outdoors. It's actually the only drawback of the Mylo for me, but a fairly big one. The Mutsy wheelbase is on the short side for use in the snow and pushing through grass and ruts. And the way it reclines always wakes up TechnoBaby.Will this stroller be your outside stroller mainly? Snow, etc.

WTF? I have no idea...I swear it wasn't always like that? I've fixed it anyway. Thanks.Okay, hold the show. Why do you have Clek spelled Cleck in your siggie. Am I on glue or is that spelled wrong?
I'll keep pondering strollers.. This whole anti bucket seat thing really puts a wrench in things.

I know. I don't know, maybe I could reconsider? I've just hated every bucket seat I've owned. Maybe if it had a bolt upright position, a couple in between, and a lay flat...well see it won't be lay flat because the kid's legs are up in the air...I dunno, don't like them, but maybe if the stroller met my other criteria, I'd think about it.
I'll go look at the new features on the upcoming Cameleon again. But Bugs are so popular and I like to be different.
canadiangie said:I only know that after 6 years of saying I would NEVER push a cliche Bug, I am now, and its quite enjoyable. It's not omg-this-is-the-best-thing-ever enjoyable, but I'm humbled enough to say its pretty good. And dd loves it, actually they all love it. It's the first bucket seat stroller seat I've owned (I think) and she seems so comfy in it when it's reclined. Like her whole little body is cradled, and her legs are fully supported. Like a LazyBoy. She slept for 1.5 hrs in full recline mode (feet to the moon mode) and she will be two in October. So I vote Bug, I think. Barring something else that actually meets all your req's.
I have always loved the teutonias. That plum floral was gorgeous! They say the wheels are no flat air tires. Do you need a tall seatback? If not, you could try to find an older gen stroll air that sits bolt upright or completely flat. You can get air tires for the new gen as an extra. If you are also looking craigslist you can check for older teuts, too. What about a bertini pram with the steerable wheels?
Sits high, tall hood, reversible seat, huge basket that is metal, seat sits fully upright and fully flat, and air tires.
I wonder if the Bugaboo changed recently? The most upright position on mine is like HOLY COW UPRIGHT! So upright I didn't like using it until recently because I thought Brecken would faceplant out of it.

Urgh...Dorel...:ROTFLMAO: I liked the looks of the older models then. That one Dorel model is nothing that thrills me.You can only find bertinis used now. They are/were an australian company, that still have a web site but are now owned by igc/dorel.
Not wowed on the looks, but I'll take a look at some of the model's specs and see what I think. They have so many that look almost the same. I'm confused why they need so many models. I hope I discover a compare feature on their web site.If you are looking oversees, how about looking at an emmaljunga? They have both reversible seat and handle models, but they do sit a bit lower to the ground. http://www.emmaljunga.com/english/Prams/Find_your_pram/Ozone-317.html
Now, the newer ones look a bit higher.
If you are looking overseas, you could also look at bebecar. Now, I thought that they were starting to import them to North America, but I can't find a site for that. http://www.bebecar.com/bebecar/rm-en/pushchairs/product.php?id=ipop-at#description
I don't have any other ideas besides what's been thrown out already, but I would rule out the Teutonia. We carried it at my old BBB and I *hated* it. It was awful. The wheels suck, the push is crap, etc.
Okay, that might explain the UK video then. I actually really like the looks of the Teutonia BeYou!. And I really love the reversible handle along with the reversible seat. I think in NA, the only stroller that offers that is the Bug? Strollers like the Flyer don't need the seat to reverse since the front and back wheels are the same (small and crappy and too many wheels all around! LOL). And there isn't much else for reversible handles.I hear that the overseas Teutonias are way better than the ones here (which are really not that different from Graco from what I hear.)
(The Strider Plus is not what I saw, but is almost what you're looking for, except that it has a bucket-y seat. Though not as buckety as some it looks like...)
