I currently have dd in a carrycot on our micralite superlite, its fab, a great push, nice and light very maneovreable etc.

I bought a bee+ months ago to use for when she outgrew cc as didn't want her in micralite pushchair til she was alot older. Im now having a wobble about the bee, not sure i like her in it, tried her today at nearly 11weeks and not sure. Seems low, flimsy, and little protection unless she's in cocoon which i feel she will soon outgrow. Also unsure how the bee will perform in winter weather..

Rather fancy the silver cross but that is based on looks alone atm, not seen one close up to have a play with.

I've seen it up close - I wasn't expecting to like it, I had in truth a rather low opinion of Silver Cross since they changed hands after the company liquidised in Sept 2002
However, when I gave the Silver Cross surf a brief look-over in Babies R Us a few months ago I thought it looked good quality.
I did not push it - or even sit my child in it - but it seemed to have nice features - and be a very comfortable place to put a baby - nice ergnomic seat - which can parent face.
I have heard the basket beneath is a little impractical - however it looks fantastic! grin

As an alternative - might I suggest my favourite pram of all time - the Uppababy Vista. Light and manouverable to push - very comfortable for babies and toddlers and also folds in one piece. The Vista ought to perform well in winter weather - the wheels are a really good size.

I've got a surf, had it for 6 months and I love it. It's easy to push, ds2 always falls asleep in it, so it must be comfy.
I tried a bee, but it just felt too small and flimsy to me.
