Considering replacing Bee + with BJCM - any thoughts?

I have a love-hate relationship with my Bee +. I love the fact that it's lightweight, front and rear-facing, looks cool etc but hate the fact that it feels rickety, rubbish on rough terrain and the extending seat back keeps slipping down. I'm considering selling it and getting a BJCM (seen loads of great reviews) and would welcome and feedback/experiences people have thx. I will have to see the Bee to but the BJCM and don't want to let it go and then regret it. Confused!!

I prefer the old Bee to both of them TBH. BJCM is fab in that its so easy to fold and can fit a huge child in, but I didnt think it was that easy to push and its very wide.
I'm still squeezing my 2 year old into Bee but I've got an Air Buggy now too and it is fab. Light, folds very small, narrow, love it. The recline is by zips though, only downside. Its basically a mini 3 wheeler.

I meant to say..."have to sell the Bee to buy the BJCM!!" Thx for the feedback horsemadgal...I'm going to go and have a play with the BJCM tomorrow because of what you said about it being wide. I had a Buzz and hated the fact it was so wide! I'll also check out the Air Buggy.

Have you considered the mountain buggy swift? I just bought one as a 2nd pushchair, for the reasons you mentioned. I still love my bee though, it's so nippy and fab for shopping. The swif is small, but excellent off road and built like a tank!

Hi, just looked at the Swift...nice! Decided against the BJCM - been to look this morning and it is quite wide at the back...and it feels really flimsy compared to the Bee. In fact, I've fallen in love with my Bee again...and Bugaboo are sending me a replacement seat back so hopefully it will soon be perfect.
