Hi!!
I've looking to change my bugaboo cameleon for a lighter, easier to use buggy! My little man has got too big for it and it's time for a change. I like the look of the Maclaren XT or the city mini lite. Has anyone had experience with these. I quite tall at 5ft8 so need something that's talk or can adjust. I believe the city mini is good but the lite is a much better price!! :)))
Thanks xxxx

The Lite handle is lower than the City Mini. Given your height it wouldn't be worth the compromise in price. The Joie Litetrax handle is higher, but I would still say go for the City Mini. The advantages of these pushchairs over the Maclaren is a one bar push which is easier to manoeuvre and also as the child gets older they can't 'paddle' the pushchair along using their feet like they can on an umbrella fold pushchair.

Thanks! I thought that might be the case, the OH isn't too happy about spending £200+ on another pushchair, will have to keep my eyes peeled on eBay I think!! Cheers ??

I've got both having bought the xt first after having a Chameleon. I didn't like the xt and really missed the single-handed push.
I've got the bjcm gt and it is a fantastic buggy.
