A Good Jogger Stroller

Hi Mummies,

Not sure if I will have response on this thread cos we mothers are really busy to go keeping fit nowadays with a new baby at home. Just wanna ask what to look out for, for a good jogger stroller which can go jogging for long distance? I am intending to start exercising again, keep feeling fat fat after giving birth early this year.

Any advise?
 
hi,
most jogging strollers are meant for jogging n ideally 3 wheeler with big wheels tat can be pumped.

front wheel - should be able to be locked for jogging on straight path.
safety bar in front of the seat n secure harness for the baby.
Handles for the parent - should be a horizontal bar that can be adjusted to different heights so that u can jog with arms at comfy levels.

So far my jogging stoller is underutilised now tat i'm pregant. hehehe..
if u get brands such as baby jogger or mother's choise, the features of jogger stroller is more or less quite good.

note that some strollers might look like suitable for jogging but quinny buzz or sporty versions of capella stroller. but these are not meant for jogging.

its good to wait til ur baby to be able to sit up before going jogging so tat ur baby has good neck strenght by then. otherwise, its quite unsafe and most jogging strollers would be too big for ur baby!

Hi,

currently im using baby jogger for jogging wif my 6 mth old baby, it is quite good as the pnuematic wheels really make the baby's ride less bumpy on the track... i got my baby jgger at motherhood fair.
whenever taking baby for a jog, baby will expect u to keep jogging otherwise start crying.. so good motivation not to stop jogging... hee =P
 
I bring my baby on a jogger for skating at east coast park. 1st time i brought her was 6 weeks old. just lay her flat on the jogger. she enjoys it, after awhile she fall asleep already.. so i'll just push and the baby sleep. i use Altitude 3 wheeler (Urban detour) from mother care but Quinny Speedi is better cos it has brakes. Mine no brakes, only rear suspension and pneumatic tyres.

Hi,

I have a Quinny Speedi. My husband uses it to bring my kids when he goes jogging. He even pushed my then 20 month old son in the Stanchart half marathon in 2007.
 
i gotten a 2nd hand jogger, german brand call babywelt. great for jogging, especially on rough terrain. happy with it.

just that the front wheel is fixed, hence manoevring abit diff, but still ok for me.
fixed wheel is really important for a jogging stroller, so it will not wobble.

I bought my Babyjogger stroller at taka fair in March, you can contact the distributor 65-65623008. I got it for under $600. They hv 2 models, City Classic and Summit. Summit is more suitable for jogging but it is heavier and you need to be quite big built to handle it. I'm using City classic, its good for light jogging.

Hi, baby jogger strollers is good to carry baby jogging? We would like to have light jogging with baby.

Found that the online store www.brilliantstuffs.com or http://www.brilliantstuffs.com/index.php?gOo=goods_search_list.dwt&gkey=baby+jogger&gprice_from=&gprice_to=&imageField.x=0&imageField.y=0 selling this model.
After discount will be $597.65 and still have $11 bonus point. Worth to buy? Any other place cheaper?

Padded seat reclines to a near flat position, is it mean sutable for new born ?

someone selling her Baby Jogger.

I bought mine for $597 I think, direct from agent during Taka fair. If Brilliant selling with bonus point then sld be worth it. It can recline flat so your baby can sleep but you're not supposed to jog with nb baby, can only use from 6months onwards.

Its good for light jogging but serious runners can look at getting the Summit model but like I mentioned, its heavy and you need to be tall cos the handlebars on Summit are not adjustable.

hi tamms,
thks for the lead. viewed the link but looks like it's city series and doubt i can use it for serious running with my bb. wat's ur view?
i wld prefer a Summit model and shld have no problem handling heavy stroller/pram becos i'm using maclaren techno xt now. but i'm abt. 1.54m only so not sure if Summit is too high for me to handle....

rachel, summit will be too tall for you... I'm 1.59 and the handle bar is almost at chest level. To jog comfortably it needs to be at around waist level. However, don't take my word for it, you can call the distributor at 65-65623008 to try out the summit. I met them at the March baby fair, they are also the distributor for Medela. Now Taka fair is on again can call to check if the stroller is on display. I can't really think of any good jogger strollers in SG. Baby Jogger Summit is the only brand and model for somewhat serious jogging available here. You can try the Mountain Buggy Urban, its available at Mothers Work Great world city/Tanglin Mall. price is ex over 1k but it looks good. There are lots of brands out there that claim to be joggers but in fact are not.


I've done a few 5ks with my city classic, very comfortable for baby and so far no prob for the stroller. It would be great if we had the Bob Revolution or Schwinn strollers but there is no local agent. If you really want 1 you'll have to buy it in yourself. The city classic is working well for me so far,and anyway my knee is giving out on me sometimes so sadly I'm limiting my running these days as well.

to add on, if you are not a competitive runner and your pace is about 8-10kmph, based on my usage IMO city series is ok

jinyu,
we hardly take the jogger out but when we do, its quite fun. we normally just drive to the park and go jogging... not really much to plan. So far kiddo will happily sit in the stroller. Oh I like the mountain buggy too, looks nice

The weight of the stroller is estimated 5kg. If you like to get one its best to order frm their website on Mondays or Tuesdays coz the price is abit cheaper and note that the price always change every 3hrs, good luck!

Hi Rahmah,
Oops, this is the 1st time I'm getting a reply from you...wonder where the 1st one went??
Anyway thx for replying (again) and i will most certainly look into it!

I'm currently 26weeks, EDD Sept 9.
Looking into jogger more for my hubby cos he trains for triathlon. A friend gave us a preloved one from Trek, but it's so old & when we sent for servicing at the bike shop, they don't have parts! Instead they advised us to get a new one.
So I googled & found your thread...
Does your baby like being in it?
 

gemini71

New Member
yes definitely heheheh, hv u chk their website "prubuy" which i mentioned earlier??? my stroller was a all terrain stroller i think ur hubby shud look for ironman bob stroller the price is abt the same anyway
 

mellyjong

I've bought a light weight stroller for daily use. So the jogger is my hubby's domain since he's the one using it exclusively

I'm not sure what's the difference between the Bob Revolution Stroller SE & the Ironman Bob stroller...will have to compare specs before we make our purchase.
So are you a marathon runner? How far/long do you run with baby? And at what age did you start jogging with baby?
