Best "chassis" to go with Maxicosi and buggy board
Hi there - just found out we're expecting number two and already starting to think about buggy solutions! DD will by 3 when baby arrives and whilst we already have a phil and teds which should be good for walks from the house with the double seat, we need to use the car a lot more now so looking for a quick release pushchair frames/chassis that I could keep in the car and use with the maxicosi and a buggy board for quick trips into town.
Friends have suggested Quinny Buzz or Bugaboo Chameleon as good chassis, but interested in any other suggestions. Hoping to pick something up on ebay for a £100 as state of seat not too important but flexible for the right thing. Do need to be able to steer it one handed though!
I have a Baby Jogger city mini gt, that I've taken the seat off to just use with the maxi cosi or carrycot for now. The chassis is light and easy to fold, although when you take the seat off there is no strap to pull the folding mechanism - I've tied a shoe lace between the levers to make it easy.
My 3yo Ds uses a buggy board with it too.
Not sure what they go for on ebay, but its a bloody brilliant buggy, and far better than my old Phil & Teds.
i have a bugaboo frog and the maxi cosi fits on that and they do a buggy board, you should be able to get both fairly easily on ebay and the frog will be cheaper than the chameleon as its the older model, still just as good tho i used mine loads iwth the buggyboard, a friend has mine at the moment.
