no the e3 doubles doesn't recline but the sport does, I tried a sport yesterday of another mnetter it was lovley and my boys loved it too!! I was going to get a secondhand one as cheap as poss, but I bought one off ebay last week and had my fingers burnt. decided to sell off loads of baby equipment other prams and buy a new one. i've just ordered. you can get an e3 classic for £280 delivered with doubles btw brand new.
how old are your boys? its worth getting the sport if you can stretch for it but they seem expensive on ebay? I've just paid £389 delivered with doubles, raincover and sleeping bag (or you can have a cocoon) with www.oxfordpramcentre.com
my e3 has mudguards, but my friend has a sport and it seems better in a lot of small ways, mainly the reclining toddler seat.However, everyone I know with a SPORT HAs VERY STICKY BRakes, worth checking out
Oooh, I'm wondering now if I should wait as I don't actually need it until next March when my baby is due. I'm a Childminder so I use a double at the moment. I have a Quinny 4xl Freestyle Tandem which is very bulky. It's a fantastic double pram which also converts into a single and can carry a Maxi Cosi car seat but the only way to fold it is by taking the 2 seats off which takes up a lot of room in my shed - Also the front seat doesn't go back at all and is bolt upright. This is why I have decided to sell the Quinny and go for the Phil and Teds for when my baby comes along. Do you think I should hang on to my Quinny and wait it out just in case the Sport comes down in price? Or shall I grab the E3 bargain now? Decisions, decisions
no wait. theres always new updated ones coming out. like the new p&t dash is coming out at the end of the year, if this proves popular maybe the sport will come down in price? Pushchairs are constantly changing and getting better, I wouldn't get one now at all wait. I never bought a double at all until after my last son was born as I couldn't choose my two youngest are 18m apart so i had to have one, i've been through 5 doubles in a year!! Im hoping this will be the last. I had to sell all my 'baby' stuff to buy it!
ha,ha!! Well watch out next year then on for sale boards! I think I will keep it though, they seem so lovely to push, i live up a big hill and it was the easiest double to push with my 2.8yr old and my 13m old in!
Just in case anyone interested, apparently P&T don't recommend having toddler in teh bottom seat if you're using a maxi cosi but according to the reviews on Kiddicare people do with no problems. (Good deals on Kiddicare btw)
I thought the Sport was the updated version of the E3? and I didn't think you could get the E3 new anymore?
I have looked at second hand on ebay and some of the second hand prices are actually more than I've seen the sport advertised new in some places. I think you can get a sport with doubles kit, raincover and baby cocoon for about £350. I'll try and find some links.
We looked at one on toysRus recently and with the maxi cosi attached, the main seat has to be in the flat, newborn position, so I can't see how you could still get a toddler in the lower seat
Its called the 'classic' they do now for the cheapest i've seen £279 with doubles. I've seen the sport with doubles cheapest for £344, with raincover for £355 and with all this plus the cocoon or a sleeping bag for £389 pretty good I think!
