Mutsy Urban Rider - where are they?

After probably too much research, I really want to try one of these but there don't seem to be any stockists of this specific model. Does anyone know of a secret stockist in the Kent, London, Essex areas? Any advice? I really don't want to commit to buying one on eBay and then not being able to lift, store, manoeuvre it!

Just to add though I have been into two of the listed shops in the last three weeks and despite a good look around I didnt see a Mutsy in either - I am sure I would have spotted one because they a) intrigue me and b) they are different to the more standard Silver Cross etc. So I suggest you make some phone calls before you travel to check there are some in store.

I have one! Ordered on-line >8 years ago. Built like a tank, v comfy for the baby and the toddler seat would easily accommodate an adult older child (but by then I was using mainly an umbrella folding buggy).

I have found it difficult to get any kind of servicing done for it though as it is not a brand used much in the UK.

Would you like to buy mine?? One careful owner wink. Brake is broken mind, has never been fixed because I couldn't fine anybody to do it (see above). It's red, I have chassis, car seat which can be laid flat, carry cot and abovementioned toddler seat.

i know the babylady in canterbury stock mutsy but have not been in there for a while you could ring her, they do take some getting used to because of the steering, they are very big and the basket is rubbish although have noticed on ebay you can buy a add on basket,

Hi all, thanks for the responses! I've had the same results from the musty listed stockists, when we call them, they never seem to have any in, but offer to order them for me if I'm ready to buy... Which I'm not prepared to do before I've tried one! PacificDogwood, glad to hear you liked yours, but if there is no brake, I'm afraid I'm all a bit PFB... We live in a very hilly area! I might check out bargain flights to Norway!

I've got a cargo black toddler seat and carrycot, with black frame (but no carseat) that I'm thinking of selling, I'm in Norfolk, so if you wanted to come and have a look you're welcome, and see if you like them first! smile

Mine is in perfect working order, but does have the usual scratches/marks on the frame and wheels from using! I've also got the raincovers and a Mutsy changing bag (with one broken clip where I shut it in the car door) which attaches to the back of the toddler seat and is huge, so solves the shallow basket problem. And I've got a Mutsy 'Step-Up' board if you needed one of those (it's quite battered but works excellently).

I agree with what pramsgalore4 says above, it is big (difficult on buses if they're busy), and different to other prams/pushchairs to push because of the central articulation of the frame, but is great off road and on the beach/gravel, also is a very cosy carrycot and lovely roomy seat (which is adjustable too) I absolutely love mine, but my youngest is two and a half and wants to walk everywhere, and we won't be having any more!
