I recently purchased this RED BOB SUS jogging stroller from arunningstroller.com. Mine was on sale for $269.10 and FREE Shipping...so it was the best deal out there that I had found on one of these babies! Besides getting a great deal this stroller is worth every penny!

Before purchasing this stroller I researched just about every jogging stroller out there, rolled them around in the store, my daughters comfort in the stroller, tried to figure out how to fold them up, tested shock absorbers, featuers, sunshade, options, price etc... And yes some are way less expensive, but NONE of them offered the specs that BOB does! If you want a stroller to just hit the malls with and look cool, I'm sure any ol' jogging stroller will do...but if you are serious about jogging, walking, hiking, going to the beach, flea markets, etc...a BOB stroller is for you! It will take your little one anywhere with a comfortable ride. I have a 2 year old, and she hated getting into her umbrella stroller because it cramped her up being so small, and hurt my back hunching over to push...but since the BOB stroller she comes to me and says, "Mommy go walk" and I love it too...it is sooo easy to push really it pushes itself, my back doesn't hurt from pushing it since the handle bar is up high (just about chest level to me I'm 5'1"). MY first expedition with my BOB was to the beach...that was the ultimate test for me...and much to my surprise, this thing glided across the sand, wet sand, even deep loose sand or as some people call it "dead sand"...I didn't have any problems pushing it all over the beach, sidewalks, curbs, etc. and the sun shade is WOW...it covers her face and most of her upper body from the sun. I can't keep my daughter out of it now. She has plenty of room in this stroller and plenty of room to grow since the stroller goes to 70 lbs. It is fairly easy to put together, it pretty much comes assembled you have to put on the wheels, and fender. (took me about 30 mins. to read directions and figure everything out.) Only complaint I have is I need a bigger car to put this in...lol. I have a small compact car and the stroller fits fine in the trunk but I have to take off all of the wheels. It isn't hard at all though, this newer 2005 models have the "quick release" wheels, so all you have to do is flip a few levers and off come the wheels.

My bottom line opinion: Get it you won't regret it, it's well worth the money, and it has excellent resale value (usually around $200 give or take, and depending on condition of stroller etc.) on ebay when your finished with it. OR you can always save it for your next child.
