Question Maclaren differences?



New member
That chart is out of date, though, the 2012 quest is now rated from birth and there's the new globetrotter model (which is reclining Volvo with a larger canopy, I believe.)

From my few months riding the "stoller fanatic" wave my understanding was that there are different size wheels, different frames, and features like suspension and such which are the variants in the models. I honestly don't remember those specific differences - and that chart isn't very specific IMO at pointing out the things that will matter IRL.

For example i own a Maclaren Thurston Ryder..... Ryders are hybrid models of sorts. the frame is lightweight but higher weight rated (i believe its an alloy frame they don't use normally). It has the large wheels of the high end macs with suspension but the stroller is more narrow overall. I know this particular model came with all the "bells and whistle" accessories like rain cover and foot muff which aren't normally "included"but rather must be bought afterward. I have never even used any of those "accessories" :eek: They are still BNIB.... so a lot of good those extras did me! Hahaha.....

I joined the yahoo stroller group run by the stroller queen and it was most enlightening. I "unsigned" up after several months because i found my perfect stroller and no longer wanted to continue to see/hear about the latest/greatest. :) But it did teach me a lot about strollers.....
