Summary: Just got this stroller last week for running in urban area. Works great on sidewalks, streets, curbs and bumpy roads/alleys. Turns smoothly and hand break is excellent. Wheels and tires are great. Considered a fixed wheel model, but am very happy with the Summit 360 --for the city with lots of twists and turns while running (about 8.5 min/mile pace) this one works great. The one hand fold is also awesome.
Great stroller! Compared and tried several different ones!

Summary: This is a great stroller. I just got it for my 4 month old and it does ride smooth, and he loves it! The canopy is huge and keeps him well covered, and the ventilation spaces (3 of them!) are great to help a breeze pass through the stroller. It also does fold like a dream and is easy to push. I haven't had the problems the others have mentioned with it pulling to one side, but I haven't really tried jogging full speed for very long.
Summary: We bought the baby stroller while I was still pregnant. I was looking for a stroller that can serve a newborn as well as a toddler and at the same time serve as a jogging stroller. After reading many reviews I decided that the baby jogger summit was the right fit for us. I have been using the baby jogger summit from the day my baby was born. When he was just a newborn (i.e.
Summary: We researched both the BOB and this stroller before purchasing the Baby Jogger. The decision was made based on some test driving - we felt like it was too easy to push on the handle of the BOB and make the whole stroller tip backward. The Baby Jogger seems to ride the same - smooth and controlled - and we liked that the area where the child's feet go is plastic instead of cloth. It's easier to fold up and switch the front wheel from straight to swivel.
Great jogger with handy suitcase pull for carrying

Summary: I received this as a gift from my husband, and both my daughter and I really love it. I actually started using it for shopping and errands (over my Chicco Cortina), since it maneuvers so well. PROS: Easily mobility, nice that it folds into a suitcase with just a pull at the seat. Has a switch at the front wheel for STRAIGHT or SWIVEL. Front and back tires come off VERY easily and quickly. Fits into my 2003 Honda Accord trunk and front seat.
Summary: I chose this over the BOB stroller because it is taller...my 13 mo. old daughter's head was already touching the canopy of the BOB stroller, but she could ride in this one probably until around age 3-4 years. It is true that when you lock the front wheel and run, it sometimes pulls to one side, so my hubby just leaves it unlocked when he runs. It is a nice smooth ride.
Incredibly Useful - would benefit from some slight design modifications

Summary: Overall it works pretty well - - I had to air it out for a couple of days to minimize the "inflatable pool raft" smell - It would be nice if there was an extra velcro strip across the top for added functionality with the top rear flap (this would allow for better temperature regulation inside) - More instructions/general guidelines would be nice - I use a cooking thermometer (one with a long cord) to check the interior temperature as it can be difficult to judge i.e.
Summary: The original stroller purchased from Amazon.com suffered the same issue as reviewed previously - a strong pull (in our case, to the left). The pull occurred whether the front wheel was locked or not, and was extremely annoying even while walking on paved surfaces. Wheel Alignment 101: The issue is most definitely NOT caused by the front wheel itself, but rather a manufacturing defect in the frame of the stroller.
Summary: This is a great stroller! I use it for walking, and go 5-10 miles a day, and it is perfect for that! The seat is comfortable for my son, who has often fallen asleep on our walks. There is ample headroom, so both of my tall preschoolers can sit comfortably if they need to ride for a while. The Baby Jogger is the only stroller that fits my tall 5.5yo. If you are a serious jogger, get a jogging stroller with a fixed wheel. This is not a stroller for the serious jogger.
Summary: I've purchased the Summit 360 few months ago and it seemed to be the perfect stroller for our needs, nice looking stroller with great design but most important super smooth ride and easy to handle obviously in swivel front wheel mode, my wife and I used it for the first weeks for walking and multipurpose daily activities, we were really happy with the purchase.
