I think it's more personal choice...I've only had one 3 wheeler, a Vigour...It's fine to push but i'm a 4 wheeler at heart so bought a Vigour 4+ as well...To me pushchairs have 4 wheels and so 3 wheelers still look strange...Though i've recently bought an all terrain 3 wheeler mainly so i know i can still get about should it snow this winter though crossing my fingers it doesn't!!!

It depends on the pushchair TBH. I have a Baby Jogger CityMini which tips in car seat mode when pushed one handed (baby Jogger immediately asked if I pushed one handed when I mentioned it so they obviously knew) but I have a Babyzen which is solid. My Zapp although light was fine with children in. I prefer four wheels given the choice.

The main thing when pushing single-handed is a continuous handle. I have to 4-wheelers (one is a buggy I have as spare) and the one with 2 handles is almost impossible to push single-handed. The other is a dream.
