To buy: stroller - the great strolloff!


As we're nearing 6-months and getting closer to shower kind (the baby kind, not the ohmygodistink after spin kind), we're getting more into stroller research ... and it is daunting!

Our requirements are pretty simple:
  • Work in the city (read: get through doors and fit on the sidewalk)
  • Grow with the twins (read: infant through toddler)
  • Be able to run/walk/stroll up and down the San Francisco hills
  • Pack into the car
We've narrowed it down to two: the BOB Revolution Duallie and the Bumbleride Indie Twin .

BOB Revolution Duallie :
  • Cost: $569 (need to buy the carseats and all accessories separately)
  • Weight: 31 pounds
  • Width: 30.8"
  • Specs: 12" swiveling front wheel, side by side seats, fits infant carseats, holds up to 100 pounds
Drawback: only fits 1 infant carseat

Bumbleride Indie Twin :
  • Cost: $590 - 650
  • Weight: 34 pounds
  • Width: 29.5"
  • Specs: 4-wheels, 12" air tires, side by side, fits infants on up, holds up to 90 pounds
I'm going to have to sell off nearly half of my beloved shoe collection for a stroller ... now that's love!
