I currently have a Maclaren Quest. I love it, but it is slightly short for me (and way too short for DH). I'm 5'11", he's 6'4".
I had concluded that the best option would be a second-hand XT or XLR as these have adjustable handles - but I'm now realising that the XT max height is 110, the same as the fixed height of this one . I could buy the Safety 1st new for not much more than a 2nd hand XT and make up the difference with my points. Has anyone had one of these?
Any other stroller recommendations from tall parents? Or anyone looking to sell one? Haven't had much luck on the for sale boards so far
Have had a look, that looks pretty good sazm although the hood's not as big as xt. Have you got one? Is it fairly comfy would you say? DS is 8mo and sleeps in pram a lot (mind you he sleeps in a Zapp at GPs house so probably not that fussy!)
I love the baby jogger city mini pushchair because of it's high handle bar; I'm convinced my posture has improved massively since I've had it, from not having to stoop and push. They are pricey enough new (£150ish?), but you do see them second hand on here quite often. They also have a big seat which reclines fully, the best folding mechanism ever, and an extra extending hood which is great for weather protaction. Can't recommend it enough actually!
Another vote for Baby Mini City Jogger. Folds so easily, hood comes right down, seat lies flat, quite a decent accessible basket space underneath. Really easy to turn/steer. Can push with one hand. Very high handle but seems comfy no matter what height (my mum is small but has no probs) I am tall as is DH
