Summary: I bought this stroller when I had a two year old and an infant. After nearly a month of comparing strollers I bought my Valco stroller. It was perfect for us. We used it steady every weekend on long walks and short walks to school during the week for two years, no problems ever. I used the rain covers during the winter, and children stayed dry.
Summary: I bought this stroller this summer when I found myself with 3 little ones. a 1, 3, and a 4 year old. We were going on a lot of walks and the older boys, not normally stroller bound, simply couldn't keep up either walking or on little bikes. We searched for a stroller that could accommodate their size and decided on the valco with the extra seat up front for the 1 year old. I absolutely love this stroller.
Summary: I LOVE this stroller. We bought this for our twins and used it while we lived in Europe. Great for cobblestone streets and bumpy roads. After 2 years, it is still a great stroller. Couple of points to consider...1. It is one of the skinniest side-by-side strollers, so 9 times out of 10 you will fit through doorways. 2. Very durable and sturdy.
Summary: I bought this stroller when my second child was born in 2006. We live in Center City Philadelphia and I was looking for something that could hold a newborn and a 2 year old, and carry them for some 2+ years, do well in any type of terrain and weather, hold up for daily use and abuse for several years. Before this I used a Eddie Bauer travel system (Graco like) and wanted something more sturdy. Now it is also handling my third kid.
Summary: I really have enjoyed my Valco Tri Mode stroller. It is a smooth ride, handles well on all sorts of terrain, turns great and they look good (I have the pistashio green). Both my 7 month old son and I love it. No complaints as of yet. I hope to be able to use the toddler seat as well for when babe #2 comes along.
Summary: After exhausting research of specs and on-line comments (thanks to everyone), I felt it only fair that I contribute on why I chose the Valco. We have a 21-month old and a 3-month old. It is a dream to push but so are the BOB, Baby Jogger, and Bumbleride Indie Twin. I chose the Valco because it allows the child to sit more "straight-up" than both the BOB and BJ. Lies almost flat for sleeping, unlike the BOB.
Summary: After extensive research of similar strollers we decided on the Runabout and have been extremely happy with our choice. This stroller is smooth and easy to maneuver, does great on unpaved surfaces and is great for jogging (I am nearly 6' with a long stride). I highly recommend this stroller.
This is a great stroller for twins and an older sibling

Summary: I have a 2 year old and 8 month old twins, without this stroller and the toddler seat we would be lost. It moves like a dream , folds up nicely and is fairly light weight . My older child loves being up high and I love not having to chase after her. The only down side is that everyone wants to comment on it...allow for extra time.
Summary: The Valco stroller wchich I purchase after I was looking for the perfect strolle- is awesome. Smooth ride, very light (for three wheels stroller), great material and a lot of choices comes with. But may consider or maybe sugestion for next - better solution is the Hitch Hiker ride on ..Yes is great solution for older kids , but could you make a step a little bit longer and maybe little sit attached? Then I will consider the stroller to perfect!!!
Summary: Great stroller. My son is very comfortable in it. I love its large basket. It has lots of pockets and a very convenient diaper bag on a zipper. The stroller rides very smooth. And it looks good too.
