Talk to me about strollers...

Mobile: Talk to me About Strollers

I've been going back and forth between 2 strollers since I was pregnant and have had the hardest time deciding. In my mind its between Bob Revolution and the City Mini GT.

I'd like something that can easily handle gravel, grass, bumpy pavement and lots of walking. We live by a huge park full of gravel trails. Of coarse, I would like this to basically be our one and only stroller so I would use it to run errands too. I've ways leaned more towards the Mini City GT because its compact, lighter and easier to fold. That said, I question how well the GT would do on different terrain but I know the Bob could handle it.

Does anyone own the GT? How does it handle different terrain?
Are there others strollers that are better for my needs?

Thanks so much for your help!!!

  • I have the schwinn turismo. I needed something that handled loose gravel and unpaved roads well. This stroller is awesome so far, and is cheaper then some other jogging strollers. Oh and it breaks down super easy and is very sturdy.

  • I was recently out with a friend who has a City Mini GT. We walked on some wood chip and gravel paths and, while it didn't get stuck or anything, it was really bumpy and she wished she had brought her jogging stroller instead. I would get a BOB and then m

  • I have the bob it works great in any terrain. The only problem I have is getting it in and out of my car trunk, I am 5'4 and its just such a tall height for me to lift that large folded up stroller into. But other then that I already feel like I have earn

  • I have the City Mini GT stroller. We took DS to the zoo yesterday and it was good. It is a nice compromise for me. I am only 4'11 and have a herniated disc in my neck (bad car accident). It is easy for me to get out of the trunk and it handled the differe

  • We have the City Mini GT, I use it on our dog walks so through the forrest on the trails there, it does great, doesn't take up all the trunk so there is room for the dog.

    I did a bunch of research for a stroller with an easy fold that can do all

  • We have the bob ironman. It is great, takes all different terrain smoothly. It is big and heavy, I have trouble lifting it in and out of our truck, but for me the benefits outweigh its weight. I plan to use it for jogging when she is older, so we are h
