Spiffy looking piece of junk...

Summary: I spent hours over weeks looking for a stroller that I could use for jogging, but that didn't break the bank. I knew this was not a well known stroller, but by the specs it seemed it had everything I needed/wanted in a stroller. When I got it, It seemed OK....however,I just couldn't get past how big it was, and how cheaply made it seemed. Then, the first time I used it for more than just a walk into daycare, it started squaking SO loudly..
Summary: I am a baby gear obsessed Mama. I have owned over 30 strollers in the past 3 years and have tried all of the high end brands. I recently found myself in need of a single stroller for my 3 year old who gets too tired on our long walks to/from school. I didn't want to break the bank (again!) so I looked into options at a reasonable price point. The Urban Advantage stroller fills all my needs and expectations and is priced right!!
Summary: I LOVED this stroller at first with the exception of the very long seat straps (too loose for even my 9 month old)and small canopy. Seemed to have everything I wanted (love the storage, child & parent trays). Great price and friendly customer service. HOWEVER it has been recalled for the front wheel falling off...and then the back wheel fell off during a 5K (thank God I was walking) I tripped and my baby almost hit the pavement. I returned it the next day.
Summary: Overall we are pleased with this product, and would recommend its purchase. A few points to keep in mind when making the overall decision... 1. If you have a long stride, your foot might touch the axle used to place the brake control as you strike down - this will not cause the brake to engage accidentally 2. We bought our stroller from Amazon, 2 trays (one for child, and another for the parent) were included in the purchase 3.
Summary: I bought this stroller after my son turned one and it was clear that a three-wheel stroller would be handy. We've used it for a year now and I've been very happy with it, particularly for the price (as compared to other jogging strollers). Pros: This is about as lightweight as the three-wheels get. It also folds very easily (unfortunately there is not a way to secure it shut). You can remove both the parent and child tray if you want it even lighter.
Summary: This stroller was not the easiest to put together, but otherwise a great stroller. The green color is really cute and it looks comfortable for my little one. The basket on the bottom has plenty of room, even for a little dog that gets too tired on a long walk.
Summary: I actually bought this stroller from the GoGo Babyz website but after reading mixed reviews here I thought I'd put my two cents in. We are quite happy with this stroller. I was a bit concerned about the inflatable tires on all the 3 wheeled strollers I was comparing since we live in the desert where you can't avoid thorns. I was happy to find that this stroller has airless rubber wheels.
Summary: I bought this stroller because I liked the color and the fact that it had a swivel wheel. I have to say I am disappointed. I do like the fact that the seat sits upright and also lays pretty flat. I don't jog, but I noticed that when the front wheel is locked it pulls really bad to the left. I also discovered that when the front wheel is in swivel mode that the stroller is very unstable and tips to the side easily if you go over a large bump.
Summary: My wife and I have spent countless hours at this poing trying to find a true jogging stroller, reviewed by someone who jogs. What we've found is that most jogging strollers are like SUV's. Yes, they could be used for their intended purpose, but that might ruin the shiny tires and trim packages. The instructions for this stroller clearly state it is not intended for jogging. The stroller is intended to accept the carrier style car seats for babies under 20lbs.
Summary: We purchased this stroller after researching all the different brands out there...and there is a lot to choose from!!! What I really love about this stroller is that it feels sturdy and the seat is nice and padded and not flimsy material. It has a very smooth ride as well. I love the parent cup holders and that the baby has a tray as well. Many of the 3-wheeled strollers do not offer these features. This stroller does turn on a dime and is easy to fold.
