Google is giving me many different answers!

Could someone do me a favour and measure it's height on the highest setting? I'm 5'9 and like quite a high handle.

Mines in the car so I can't measure, but I'm 5'6, don't have it on the highest setting and I find it really comfortable

I'm 5'9" and had the double for DTDs - I found the handle was ok for walking, but too low for running with.

Thanks!

I'm worried it'll be slightly too low. I'm not sure which of the measurements I found online to trust.

The double or single? The double is slightly lower. 6ft 2 OH happily pushes the single with the handle fully upright. The double was still a bit low for him.

The single smile

DH coped fine with our double and he's 6 foot 7.

It is low, but I like a high handle and its not uncomfortable. I am 3ins shorter than you though, so I would probably not recommend it if you like a tall handle.

I went ahead and got one. It's actually higher than I was expecting so it's going to be fine for me.

Does anyone have the basket that you have to buy separately? I'm not sure if I need one..it doesn't look that big in the pictures.

I have the basket. Really useful for shoving the raincover in, spare clothes, odd bits of shopping. You won't be able to fit loads in though and definitely not anything heavy.

I've managed to put the basket from my easywalker on there with the aid of cable ties grin from looking at the pictures it's sitting in the same position and is the same size so it'll do for now.

Sure it's fine. Might be harder to fold with it on though maybe.

I've given it a test run and it doesn't seem to make any difference smile

That's good. Saved yourself £20 then.
