Keeping fit with baby
This Bob stroller is a one-of-a-kind stroller. It lets you walk and jog with your children over different kinds of terrain which is something that you do not get from other strollers.
How? The secret is in the stroller’s frame design and its relatively big polymer wheels which measure 16 inches.
Its 3-inch suspension distributes evenly the weight of the infant for a comfortable jog or stroll. Its features also enable it to navigate fairly easily through curbs, uneven sidewalks, supermarket aisles and unpaved trails.
No problem with storage
This stroller can also be folded fairly easily and when folded can be easily stored in a vehicle’s trunk. For other units, a parent usually has to have both hands free to fold a stroller and stash it in the trunk.
No problem with weight
This stroller is really light – lighter than the previous stroller I bought. It is very easy to fold up and what’s even better is that you can easily remove the wheel after folding for additional compactness. Now that is something to look forward to as this does not happen that often with strollers.
The suspension is excellent as you here no creaking sounds coming from the wheels. The storage on this stroller is also great. Another great feature it the large canopy it comes with.
No freebies for parents
The only negative thing I can say about this is it doesn’t come with a cupholder but you could buy one separately.

If you have already seen this stroller in action and you think that it is a dream, then go for it. Now if it is the lack of a cupholder that is holding you back, go ahead and get yourself a cupholder. This type of stroller just does not happen that often.
