Can you recommend a simple (cheap!) pushchair frame to fit maxi-cosi car seat

I have a maclaren techno xlr that I'm happy with but would quite like the convenience of clipping the car seat on a frame for the early months. So I'm planning to buy a pushchair frame second hand but not sure what to search for. Can you recommend a basic pushchair frame compatible with maxi-cosi that won't cost the earth second hand?

i've had the maxi-cosi loola and mila - loola was great as pretty small frame and works easily with car seat (with adaptors but can leave them on. havent tried the mila with car seat yet but don't like it as pushchair as much as loola - not as sturdy but got it v cheap.

Loola or Zapp

I have a quinny zapp chassis for exactly this purpose. You can pick them up on eBay quite cheaply.

lolly I can't remember, it was 3 years ago. I think about £70.
Do you need one now? I'm considering selling ours, expecting DC2 but have now bought a pushchair which can take maxi cosi with adaptors.
With DS I had a mamas and papas pram which wasn't maxi cosi compatible, so bought the quinny frame and kept it in the car. Very light an folds tiny.

Expecting DC2 end of May so looking now for a frame for those first few months.

I had a Zapp for my car seat, however I swapped for a BJCM4 and it was bliss in comparison, and I also had a great lightweight lie flat pushchair.
