i was thinking triumph...but what else are good options?

the cybex's and mac techno xt have a much higher handle than the triumph....i actually think the triumph/quest are good umbrella's for us shorter mommies (under 5'4"!!)...

:yeahthat:, also the aprica presto and uppa g-luxe. There was a good thread on this just a few days ago, I'll see if I can find it.

I'm 5'9" and I really liked the height of the Techno. I found the Quest to be slightly low. I ended up with a BJCM and the handles are the perfect height for me and DH (he is 6').

GLuxe. I kick the back of Maclarens, but not the GLuxe. It's nice not to have to mince steps or hunch over the handles. I'm 6'2" and so is DH.

I am 5'6" and for the first couple of weeks I had my Techno I thought the handles were too high and then I got used to them and now I think that the Triumph is a tad on the short side, and I thought they were the perfect size prior to getting the Techno.
