We bought this stroller recently for our 1 1/2 year old twins.  We were upgrading from our Kolcraft Contours Tandem.  We have fallen in love with this stroller & can't wait to use it.  I am 5'1" & hubby is 6'3" and we can both comfortably use this stroller thanks to the adjustable handle bar.  It is easy to push one handed.  My son who is 4 loves that there is the option for a Hitch Hiker board and we have also thought about getting the toddler seat.  The fold is better and easier than I originally thought it was going to be.  After a couple practice runs I can now fold it very quickly and it will fit in the back of our van where ther isn't really that much room.  It is heavy but not unmanageable.  Well worth the money.

This was the other stroller on my list. I decided on the MBUD instead but I still wonder how I would have liked this. I think I want to get the single now!

This stroller is AWESOME. It was between it and an MBUD (Mountain Buggy Urban Double) and this one won for me. I love the space. It looks huge, but is as narrow as much smaller double strollers. It has a great basket and TONS of pockets and two zip off bags.  The bags on the back of the canopy zip off for a great air pass-through. It is awesome that it can hold three kids with the toddler seat. Perfect for growing families!      The plate on the front does a great double …

Valco Tri Mode Twin
Bought the Tri Mode Twin last summer for my 3.5 year old and newborn. I couldn't be happier. It is as narrow as a SBS can be, handles like a dream and all around looks cool. My DH balked at the cost, but now understands why it costs what it did. I can push it one handed fully loaded with both kids. I have taken it "offroading" and jogged with it and it handled beautifully. My only complaint is the canopy size and it seems like they have fixed that on the newer models. Love the metal footwell …
