Smallish pushchairs with single handlebar, bugaboo bee, bjcm anything else?

I need something with a single handlebar, that folds smallish and isn't too heavy. I'd be buying second hand to keep costs down. So far the list consists of:

bugaboo bee (top choice but only likely if I find a bargain locally)
bjcm or britax b-agile (both don't have adjustable handle and DH and I are very different heights so not keen)
quinny yezz (looks flimsy)

Can anyone suggest anything else to consider? It will just be for in the boot of the car to use for quick trips around town etc as I have great pram for daily use but its to heavy to put in and out of the car. thanks

Micralite quick fold

If you go for the older model Bee, they are a lot cheaper. I sold one before Christmas for £130. I'm not sure what price they are going for at the moment but I did notice the bee+ seemed to be selling for more than it was a few months ago.

I loved my micralite but it is quite long when folded. However, it was super-easy to manoeuvre.

Where are you? I have a 2010 bugaboo bee FEEE to a good home. I am in West London.

I was going to say B agile, but you've already got that one on the list! smile

Tbh you're not wrong about the handlebar height, I'm 5ft7 and it's about right but any lower would be too low.

I love it though - nearly sent it back but glad I kept it. I got it cheap on Amazon - £115. It's very light.

Not sure what else there is - Mutsy spider folds incredibly small, is heavier than the b-agile, has a good adjustable handlebar. Again you can shop around and get them for £80 or so.

Please don't get a Yezz. I loved ours until the day it tipped over with my DC in the seat and he banged his head on the floor. Thankfully it was a wooden floor because concrete could have been much more messy. Dorel don't test pushchairs with real children in the seats. My DC was very calm and sat sensibly on a flat surface watching me. It horrified me and it got sent straight back.

Can you stretch to a BJCMGT with the adjustable handlebar? If not, the BJCM would probably work for both heights because of the curved handle.

Have you tried any of the Mamas & Papas pushchairs? Im also looking for a one-handled pushchair that I can use for the school run so that I can push the pram and hold onto my 21mth old but dont want to buy new as it will only be used for this! :-/ Strix do you still have your bee hun? Ive had a frog and sold it due to it being a 2 piece fold and I need something smaller! Id be happy to pay courier xx
