Summary: We were given an instep jogging stroller as a gift and loved it until one day it refused to fold. The latch on one side would not release. My wife runs mostly from the house and this stroller had been folded less than 10 times. The side latch that broke is inside the frame and cannot be repaired even by the bike store (this was confirmed by customer service). Unfortunately the stroller was six months out of warranty and instep will do nothing to help.
Summary: We wanted a jogging stroller so that, when walking in the park, our son didn't jiggle out his little teeth. (Our current stroller had the "normal" stroller wheels, which made for a VERY bumpy ride.) The InStep stroller works like a charm. Heck, half the time I don't even have to push! It just rolls along under its own steam. The ride is very smooth, and the stationary wheel is actually nice - keeps our son from kareening down into the bayou.
Do not purchse if you really plan on jogging with the stroller!

Summary: Bad purchase! I jogged for a 1/4 mile with it and turned around and went home to look into returning it. Mine does not stay completely locked into position while it's open. It is off balance and wobbles terribly. My husband adjusted the front wheel several times and it finally alligned straight, but you cannot ajust the back wheels. Both the front wheel and back right wheel started to buldge durning my short run.
Summary: The suspension and brake make this seem nice for parents, but look closely at the seat. There is no padding on the seat, seatback, or shoulder straps. After buying this, and opening the box, I had no intentions of making our precious child ride in that. I looked around, found the Instep Safari for $10-20 more that has great padded seat, seatback, and shoulder straps, as well as child tray, swivel/fixed wheel options, and looks a lot nicer overall.
Exactly what I wanted - No frills jogging stroller

Summary: No, the wheel doesn't swivel. for this price range, you don't want it to. If you have the money for a BOB, get one. If you want an inexpensive, quality stroller to jog with your 12 month or older child, this is it. I am completely satisfied and continue to use it once or twice per week.
Summary: ...and would be better if the front wheel wasn't fixed. It's ok when you need to go straight but turns are a pain! I'm not using it for jogging, but walking on different terrains, works great in sand/grass, not so great on pavement curves! Will never purchase fixed wheel stroller again.
Summary: This stroller is not for little toddlers and definitely not for babies in arms. It swam around my daughter when we got it at 6 months and it was only after she turned one we could use it at all. The shoulder harnesses don't hold her in now that she's grown more, and they're adjusted so she's pinned against the back of the stroller. She just slips her arms out the sides. The lap harness is hard to fasten.
Summary: i ret this item as soon as it arrived bc the box itself said only up to 50 lbs...i have a 3yr old who already is tall and 40lbs...we go for 3-5mi walks and i wouldnt spend that kind of money on sumthing we will not get much use out of..
Summary: I got this for my husband and he absolutely loves it! He really likes the big wheels and says it's perfect for him. I, however, don't like that the front wheel is fixed. It's very hard for me to maneuver it. I didn't know the wheel was fixed when I purchased it so please make sure you know that before you buy a jogging stroller!
Summary: I already had this stroller and knew how great it was, so decided to get one for my brother in-law. It arrived the very next day even though I had the slowest shipping. the quickest all round transaction I have done on Amazon.
