View Full Version : LL Bean jogger/fixed wheel?
05-10-2005, 09:03 AM
Has anyone tried the new LL Bean jogging stroller? It seems reasonably priced ($179), and the wheels pop off for travel. (Maybe this is common? I don't know.) And you know Bean's would have good customer service.
How much of a pain is a fixed wheel? I do not actually jog, so I want the stroller for walks on bumpy sidewalks, outdoor fairs, etc.

I just saw that in the catalog this weekend. I think it looks very similar (different colored fabric) to an Instep Jogger. And while I love LLBean, I am willing to bet you can get the same model Instep for cheaper than Beans. It is fairly common for wheels to pop off- some models dont tho so if that is what you want, make sure the model you get mentions easy pop off wheels.
I would say for walks and fairs, you will be happier with a swivel wheel. The most afforable one is an Instep Safari TT, I think. I own a Phil and Ted's E3 which I adore (esp if you are planning a number 2 down the road). I also owned an MBUS but prefer the Phil and Teds. Valco Runabout is another option.
You can check out joggingstroller.com for the most of those strollers including the Insteps.
