Have Maclaren Techno XT for three years. Hate it, find it horrible to push, hurts my back, only forward facing so can't speak to ds properly, have to lean over with the buggyboard on it, crap shopping basket, tips when you put far too much stuff on it...

Am treating myself to a lovely, new pram when we move (hopefully in a month)... what should I get? How is the Infinity? Budget up to about £100.

Help grin

Infinity and Britax vigour very good also mothercares own 3 wheeler (urban quantum i think). I have tried all these and prefer them to mclarens, I find them heavy and awkward, better for car buggy. 3 big air wheels are best.

Oh yes, when I say new I mean 'new' to me.

I know you love it Nicola, I do love how teeny it is (no daggers on the bus), and how it's put up with everything I've thrown at it (including being used as a trolley while camping)... but that's about it...

Yes, want nice big air wheels. Can you get the Infinity on the bus without everyone hating you? It's heavy though right, does it matter?

Thanks for comment#

What about a mountain buggy - someone was selling on for £150 on here will get daggers on the 476 but not on the 73!
