Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Does it work well on the beach in the sand?

A:

I love it for the beach and the sand. But just make sure you lock the front wheel in place for more traction in the sand. This is my favorite stroller EVER!

Q:How is the ride on gravel roads? I plan on walking or jogging about 5-6 miles on country gravel roads daily. Is the suspension enough?

A:

I have walked 5km on gravel with no problems.when I jogged on gravel I didn’t lock the front wheel.i know you are supposed to but I didn’t just because of the rocks, again no problems at all. Hope this helps!

Q:Good for running

A:

Yes, it is super responsive on any speed.

Q:Is this the BOB Revolution SE 20011 or 2013?? I’m inclined to believe that this is the 2010 model because it does not state anywhere that it is either the 2011 or 2013 model. That might explain that deep discount – still a good stroller but I’m looking…

A:

I had the same question because I heard the chicco carseat adapter for bob strollers will only work with the 2011 version and older. This Bob stroller was manufactured MFG:2010-09-27 and released January 14th 2011. So does this mean this stroller is the 2010 version or the 2011 version? Its not that clear. If that wasn’t an issue, I would get it already. Sorry they didn’t answer this question for you sooner. I just saw this and saw the date, knew I had to at least answer.

Q:Has anyone ever had the fabric tear at the foot of the stroller (where the kids stand to get in)? TIA for your help!

A:

I have never had that problem. I find it is very strong and durable. My two year old is constantly climbing on that area and often sits in that area, and there is no damage.

Q:have a 5 year old daughter and she is 40 lbs, until what weight can I use this to?

A:

I believe it’s a 70 lb weight limit.

Q:Is it ever a problem to not have a hand brake? Do you need to avoid hills and bridges with this model?

A:

I have never had an issue without brakes. No need to to avoid hills or bridges

Q:Is this stroller good for walking/running on beach sand?

A:

hmmm depends on the sand I guess. wet compact sand would be no problem but “fluffy” sand would be difficult. But if any stroller could it would be this one…. its got rubber off road style tires.

Q:when the canopy on the stroller is collapsed, it hits my 8 month old child in the head. Anyone else have this problem? Is there a way to fix this?

A:

I just bought this for my 3 Year Old. When canopy is pulled back it was slightly hitting her head. Another mom told me to pull in the straps near clear window back. It then pulls clear up in canopy and allows for more head space. So i pull this back first then close canopy 100%. I found this solved 80% of my problem

Q:Is there a front adapter to hitch on to pull it behind a bike? Thanks for your answer

A:

It is not designed to pull behind a bike.

Q:BOB Revolution SE – any changes for 2012? Anyone know if the BOB Revolution SE is changing for 2012?

A:

The Bob Revolution SE is updated for 2013… minor updates- the seat now sits up a bit more vertically and some other minor update regarding the “5 point harness”

Q:what are the dimensions when this is folded up? I want to make sure it will fit in the trunk of my car.

A:

Im not sure of the dimensions but it fits nicely in the trunk of my Ford Focus, which other then a smart car, is about as small as a trunk you can get. Plus the wheels are SUPER easy to take on and off for extra room. Its just a matter on flipping up and down a metal lever to remove the wheels. They really have done a fantastic job on making this stroller really easy to fold and fold down compactly. I leave the stroller in my trunk due to I live in a second floor apartment and I always still have room for grocery shopping ect..

Q:Is there a rear parking brake?

A:

Yes, there is a bar that flips up and down with your foot

Q:Anyone used this to walk w/ an 8wk old? I see the use w/out infant car seat adapter begins @ 8 wks. I know you can’t run until 8 months.

A:

8 weeks is too small to have the child not fall over unless your baby is a giant. We didn’t regularly put our kid in here until 3 months old and we had to prop her up with blankets. We began running with her in there when she was around 6 months and she was fine…although still slightly propped up with blankets on her sides.

Q:Can this be effectively used as infant stroller ? If yes what attachments would be required to make this into an infant travel system ?

A:

Works great; you just get the car seat adapter for your car seat brand and your car seat pops in. This is the one we have:
http://www.amazon.com/BOB-Infant-Adapter-Chicco-Strollers/dp/B004FN11ME/ref=cm_sw_em_r_awdtod_8J-Qub095KJKR_tt

Q:Hello. This stroller can be usted rear facing?

A:

Sorry, this is only front facing.

Q:Does this stroller work well on rough trails? i want to use it to go hiking were there are tree roots etc & not sure if i should get flex or SE. Thnx

A:

I wouldn’t do it! I dont think there’s enough shock absorption to keep the child from getting brain damage.

Q:My infant seat is a Safety 1st onBoard Air 35. Will this seat work with the carseat adapter?

A:

They make different car seat adapters for different brands that need to be purchased separately.

Q:is the handle adjustable?

A:

No. It is a perfect height for all.

Q:is this compatible with chico keyfit 30 infant car seat or the maxi cosi mico AP?

A:

Hi there, BOB’s website should have the adapter and a list of the carseats that fit the adapter. Sorry I can’t be much help. I stuck with the Britax B-Safe and its adapter. Good luck!

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Does it fold nicely with the car seat adapter on or would i need to detach it every time before folding?

A:

You don’t have to detach it, the stroller folds up really easily even with it attached. It did not change how it folded with it in place for me at all.

Q:Will a graco snugride click connect 35 work with this? Is there an adapter that will fit?

A:

Check out the BOB site – it lists the adapters there. When I bought mine, I also bought the Britax B-Safe carseat. I believe Peg Perego and one other brand fit…. that was in September/October 2012 though. Things could be different now. Good luck! This stroller is awesome – you can push it with your pinky. 🙂 I love it.

Q:Does the front wheel “jiggle” side to side with jogging in the locked position?

A:

Not at all. There’s a locking mode for running which works well enough for trail running, no problems. There’s a free front wheel option for walking. Or, as I like to call it, the option for quitters.

There really aren’t any issues with instability.

Q:Can I use this stroller everyday (going out for a walk, grocery shopping… etc) as well as for running? Which one would you recommend? SE or CE?

A:

It’s a little clunky for grocery shopping but is great at a mall. I have a smaller umbrella stroller that I use for tighter quarters, and for the grocery store we just put the car seat in the shopping cart. Is say either model will be fine depending on if you want to take it off-roading or not but otherwise it’s your preference!

Q:what size the shipping box? thanks

A:

i don’t know the exact size but it was large probably 4 feet by 4 feet

Q:I have the BOB infant car seat, do I need an adapter to use it with the stroller? Thank you!

A:

Yes , I believe you need an adapter for all seats as there would be no place for the car seat to go without it.

Q:Anyone know the difference between the SE and the CE version of this?

A:

The CE is the City Edition, SE is the Sports Edition. I think the wheels are the only difference.

Q:Will this fold up and fit in the back of a Prius?

A:

I don’t know how big a Prius is, but it doesn’t fold up very small. We have a Chevy Impala and it barely fits in our trunk folded. We typically put it in our back seat because it fits better!

Q:Does the accessory adapter come with this stroller?

A:

No it does not. If you a going to be pushing a baby in th car seat, you have to by the adapter that fits your car seat. IF you want the accessories bar with snack tray you have to buy it separate also.
Amazon is the best place to purchase accessories for it.

Q:I’d like to import this stroller to Canada. Can you confirm that the warning labels are printed in English and French?

A:

Everything is written in English and French

Q:My LO is 7 months old and can sit up by himself- would I need to get the infant carseat adapter or could I jog/run with him in the stroller alone?

A:

The car seat adapter Max weight limit is 17lbs so no, you don’t need the car seat. Just make sure he/she has good head control before jogging. They recommend 8 mo but I’d say use common sense and best judgement.

Q:I am only 5 feet tall. Will this stroller be too tall for me to run and not be awkwardly controlling the stroller

A:

I’m 5’3′ and it’s not awkward at all for me!!!!

Q:Where is this stroller made?

A:

When I was looking for a jogging stroller the “Made in USA” label was important to me…the BOB stroller was definitely American made.

Q:Have any of you travelled by air with the stroller? How did it hold up with all the tossing on/off the plane? I’m super worried!

A:

I travelled via Delta with my stroller and car seat. It worked and held up very well. I did put a pool noodle on the handle and just left it there throughout the travel. I put the car seat in a red bag at the gate. The stroller went with just the noodle. I was traveling just with my baby, so I could not put it in a bag. It will do great!

Q:is this for newborns

A:

I don’t recommend it for newborns unless you purchase the carseat adaptor and use with the infant car seat. The seat on the bob does not recline that far for it to accommodate newborns.

Q:I’ve been told that there is another pushchairs adaptors that you can use to fit the Maxi Cosi car seat to this but can’t remember which ones ???

A:

I have a Maxi Cosi car seat and was never able to find a car seat adapter for the BOB. I ordered the warm fuzzy insert for the BOB (http://www.amazon.com/BOB-WF1001-Warm-Fuzzy/dp/B003KTLYIU) and that seemed to hold baby in pretty snug. I would suggest a head support for the littler ones though.

Q:Do you need the car seat ‘base’ as part of the attachment? and what are all of the brands of car seats that work with the bob stroller?

A:

No, you just need car seat itself. I bought the Graco attachment but i think you can buy other attachments for different brands

Q:Does the BOB Revolution SE have a Britax B-Safe Infant Car Seat Adapter?

A:

I’m sure it does. If it has for graco then I imagine it can accomodate Britax. Just do a search for britax and bob adaptor and I’m sure you’ll find what you are looking for.

Q:I’d like to fold this stroller up and hang it on the wall. Is it going to damage the stroller to hang it by the red folding loop onto the wall?

A:

I would not, but that is not to say that you cannot. I would probably hang it from the side.

Q:How to maintain the tires, how to inflate the tires?

A:

We bought a bike pump at Wal Mart to inflate the tires

check-price-on-amazon

Q:will this stroller fit a 4 year old?

A:

The stroller says it can fit up to 5 years old. After looking at it, I believe my nephew, who is almost 5, would fit no problem.

Q:I had this item in my cart yesterday at 40% off and 3 hours later it was priced $60 more! Why is this? That was a deal breaker for me.

A:

it was only 40 percent off on jan 7- deal of the day

Q:How does the car seat for babies work in the stroller, any pics? Do you have to remove the Bobs seat or does it fit on top with the the adapter?

A:

You have to buy a car seat adapter to go with those stroller if you want to attach a infant seat. Look under stroller accessory’s and then hit BOB and youll see a whole list of them.

Q:Can I upgrade/order the chrome wheels instead of the black plastic

A:

No. We have the packaged in the warehouse as is. Sorry about that.

Q:which year is this model?

A:

I’m not sure… Just ordered it in September. I love it!!

Q:Does the Graco infant carrier sit well on the stroller?

A:

Yes but you need the car seat adaptor.

Q:Which model year is this? I’ve done some research and while the differences are mostly cosmetic, and compatibility with the attachments vary.

A:

I don’t know, we just got it in April. A previous customer asked how we inflated the tires; I used my husband. He probably used a pump of some kind.

Q:can you ship to canada, if yes how much is the duty charge

A:

We ship to Canada by way of Amazon.Ca and import taxes and custom fees are included in the shipping fee on your order which is provided at the time of checkout. Thank you for your interest in BabyEarth!

Q:What do you use to check and fill your tires with ? Feel like a dummy can’t use because Idk 🙂 thanks so much

A:

Bike pump

Q:Does anyone know the best way to fix foam that ripped on the handlebar (2011 Bob Revolution CE). We accidentally nicked the foam while putting in the car and it is now tearing across.

A:

It might not look pretty but electrical tape should do the job. Or go to a bike store. They might have some suggestions or products that might help.
