Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Is this jogger appropriate for newborns?

A:

Yes with compatible seat base for your car seat—not appropriate strapped into just the stroller—it should say at what weight & height requirement is necessary in instruction msnual

Q:does this function well/easily in rough or rocky terrain? I will only be walking, no running or jogging. child is 2 and on the taller side.

A:

Yes just make sure u lock front wheel I love mine use it everyday

Q:Hello, I just received this stroller and I’m disappointed that the basket underneath is made from such flimsy material. Is it tougher than it looks?

A:

It has been very sturdy for us. Purses, coats, keys etc are thrown under there frequently. We have enjoyed this purchase and has been a great product and value.

Q:Is the weight really 21.8 pounds? Other sites say 27 pounds for the same stroller.

A:

I am not sure about the exact weight but I would say it is definitely light weight. I have no problem lifting it and and out of the trunk of my car. I love this stroller and HIGHLY recommend it.

Q:Hi does this recline all the way down for naps? Ty

A:

The recline is actually set pretty nicely for naps while walking.

Q:Does anyone know how wide the stroller is? Is it easy to navigate?

A:

The width should be in the description but to answer the rest of your question, yes, it is very easy to navigate. My daughter walks, jogs, runs and this stroller has been a life saver for her. She has a wild two year old and he loves it.

Q:will it fit in the back of a small care like a hyundai accent?

A:

I think it would if you folded it down but it might be a tight fit.

Q:hi! does it recline flat? does it come with a swivel front wheel? thanks!!

A:

The back does not recline to 180 degrees (flat). However, it reclines to a flat-enough position for the average baby/toddler to sleep comfortably.
The front wheel has an easy flick-switch option to lock into a straight position, or unlock to swivel 360�.

Q:Hello there, what would be the real height limit? Thank you.

A:

My 18 month old is 36″ tall and it looks like he would have another 8″-10″ or so of room so I’d figure that a height limit would be anywhere from 44″-46″.

Q:Is this stroller compatible with any baby trend car seat?

A:

Yes. It’s compatible with almost every infant car seat.

Q:Is this compatible with a Chicco infant carseat?

A:

No. It is not.

Q:How old is too old for this stroller?

A:

My 6 yr old fits just fine and loves it 🙂

Q:What is the back of the stroller made out of, is it cardboard with fabric over it or is it more sturdy than that?

A:

It doesn’t feel sturdy. Feels like cardboard, but it held my 4 year old at Disney World.

Q:How does this do on Gravel? I have a 1/4 mile driveway that is gravel I would like to walk on.

A:

I took this stroller over about 1/4 mile of gravel and some of the gravel somehow made its way underneath the tire and poked tiny holes on the tube. The holes were so tiny that it took a couple days to deflate, and I couldn’t manage to patch it up. SO, I had to purchase new tubes (cheap! got them at Sports Authority), easy to replace, and they were good as new. You can say, I haven’t been on gravel since.

Q:My 5 year old occasionally sits on the footrest of our friends’ bob when he’s tired. could he sit on this footrest? (should is another issue…)

A:

Yep, lock the wheels and it’s perfectly safe. I sit on it and I’m 160lbs.

Q:Which adapter should I get for the Britax B-safe 35 elite?

A:

Sorry but not sure about that

Q:does this have an aux cable for ipod hookup?

A:

No it does not

Q:IS this stroller adequate to work on the sand/beach?

A:

I havent used in sand or at a beach yet but while researching and strolling through the other questions before i made my purchase other purchasers have used in sand before and have had no issues. Im heading to the lake soon so hopefully i can give you an update.

Q:Can you wash the seat?

A:

I don’t believe you can remove the seat to wash, but can wash with a mild soap & rag.

Q:How old do you think a baby should be to ride this stroller?

A:

It really shouldn’t matter. It caters to all ages. For younger children it can be laid flat and older children who want to explore the world it can be sat up. Best of luck to you

Q:How tall is the stroller will it work well for someone who is 6’5?

A:

From the floor to where you grasp the handlebar, it’s 40 inches. I’m only 5’3″. It seems taller than most strollers amd also gives plenty of room to stride. It’s kind of tall for me, but I like it. You do have to inflate the tires once in awhile, but it’s easy. It’s very smooth to push.

Q:In the vanguard, is that orange or red stitching on the stroller? thanks!!!

A:

Orange

Q:Is the back (where the head rests) supposed to be floppy (but rest of back is stiff)? Wondering if we’re missing something on ours behind head area.

A:

I’m not exactly sure what yours is doing, but mine is not floppy in any way. The whole seat back is one solid, not floppy piece.

Q:The front wheel of the stroller wobbles uncontrollably even after tightening of the nuts. Is there any other way to fix this problem?

A:

Stick a rubber washer in there and your problem is solved.

Q:Are the wheels rubber/inflatable?

A:

They inflate with a bike pump. They are essentially bike tires on a stroller

Q:Can you use this on the beach?

A:

Not easily. It definitely sinks in soft sand

Q:I am 5’11” is this stroller going to be comfortable to push? Or will I be hunched over?

A:

I am 5’10” and I have no problems with it.

Q:Is this jogger stroller lightweight?

A:

I am able to lift it into my trunk by myself – it’s not super light but not too heavy. Pushing it is super light/easy.

Q:What age can a baby start sitting in the stroller (not the car seat)? We are only using the stroller for walking

A:

I’m not sure I understand your question, but we were using this jogging stroller for jogging when our baby was around 15 months old, however I’m sure ages vary based on the child and comfort level of the parents.

Q:Does the canopy tilt forward, down to the tray, to block wind and rain?

A:

Honestly, I cannot remember as I ended up returning not one but two of these strollers due to faulty wheels. Had the wheels not been a huge issue the stroller itself was rather nice but what good is a stroller without wheels, right? I ended up going with another popular brand which begins with a G and rhymes with Rake-o and it has awesome rubber tires. It is awesome!

Q:In product specification it says it is 66.1 linear inches. Is that including box in which the stroller is gonna come or its dimension for stroller?

A:

I have looked at the listing and 66.1 linear inches is not mentioned in the listing, please specify ?

Q:I am having trouble with the front wheel not turning even when it is unlocked. What might I be doing wrong?

A:

I’m not sure. But the other day that happened to me along my run and a rock had gotten lodged in between the swivel piece. I would say check to make sure your bolts are tight so they lock in. I found the wheel locks when the bolts are loose. I’m assuming it’s to prevent accidents. Keep me updated and good luck!

Q:is this stroller good for a 6 month old

A:

Oh yeh…for sure…..We’re still using it on our 18 mo. old….Take him for a walk in it when he’s fussy and he falls asleep in it….It’s a life saver.

Q:Does this work with graco click connect car seats?

A:

I have a much older graco seat. It works fine. Love this stroller!

Q:was this good for disneyworld?

A:

It has excellent cargo space and plenty of cup holders. Maneuverability is fantastic. I think it would be great for Disney world. Just check tire pressure.

Q:My son is always trying to pull forward in our current stroller, does this seat allow the children to sit upright or is it always reclined?

A:

The seat doesn’t sit straight up like a regular chair, but I find it lets my daughter sit upright and even forward toward the cop holders when she wants to.

Q:is the chico keyfit 30 car seat compatible with the baby trend stroller?

A:

no

Q:can the canopy rotate to the front? my baby hates it when the sun hits her face. thanks

A:

Yes

Q:Is this jogger compatible with any car seat

A:

No

Q:is the height of the handle at all adjustable? do you suppose a 6’2″ man would be comfortable running with this? his stride length is pretty long…

A:

Yes

check-price-on-amazon

Q:Does a safety first carseat fit in it?

A:

I don’t think so

Q:is this compatible with a britax bsafe carseat?

A:

hello I just don’t know about the britax carseat but I can only tell u about baby trend jogger the only problem with this product is with the wheels .

Q:Can you adjust the handlebar on this stroller? thanks-

A:

Not that I’m aware, but it’s at a good height both for me (5’3 and my husband 6′).

Q:Does this stroller work well in the sand?

A:

Yes

Q:My husband is 6’3″. Would the handle on this be high enough for him to hold while running?

A:

My husband is 6’1″ and I feel like he has room. It’s a pretty high handle for a jogging stroller.

Q:Can I put an infant in this stroller? Is it compatible with any car seats?

A:

an infant who is able to sit up independently would best fit this stroller. but the seat reclines so an infant who cannot would probably be just fine. i do not believe it is compatible with any car seats.

Q:Hi, I am looking for a stroller for a six year old for holidays, does anyone know if this would be big enough

A:

Depends on how big your 6 year old is. My 3.5 year old is on the smaller side

Q:Does the chicco infant seat fit into this stroller?

A:

I don’t know. My Graco did not.

Q:Do I have to buy a tire pump to go with this stroller as the tire may go flat after a few months?

A:

I have had this stroller for 4 months now and have had I inflate the tires once, using our regular bike pump. I you don’t have a pump, you should get one because you will need it on occasion. Hope this helps!

Q:Will this be a comfortable seat for a newborn WITHOUT a car seat? (I am aware I should not jog with a baby until about 7-8 months of age).

A:

Hi, until the little one can hold their head up I wouldn’t put them in this stroller without a car seat. There are straps, but I feel they are more for older kids who are able to sit up. Their little heads have no side support. Hope this helps!

Q:Can I Gate Check this at the airport?

A:

You can gate check any stroller.. So yes.

Q:Can I put my baby’s Graco Snug Ride carseat securely in the stroller?

A:

My daughter has the snug ride car seat and we were not able to make it fit snug. I called the company who manufactured the expedition stroler and was told that I need to purchase the baby trend carseat.

Q:Do I have to remove the wheel every time to store the stroller?

A:

No

Q:Is there a handlebar accessory that would snap in the middle and allow easier one hand steering/control?

A:

The handle bar is not actually seperated, so running for Me is not an Issue. Hope this helps!

Q:does it have suspension?

A:

No, it does not have suspension but we have been pleased with this product.

Q:I bought this one and I had an issue where the tire kept going flat…did anyone else have that issue?

A:

I have had mine for a couple months and haven’t had that problem

Q:I’m unable to insert the right arm of the child tray. It looks like the plastic is gouged on the receiving end. Suppose to be like this? Any tips?

A:

If you purchased it new contact the seller or manufacturer for a fix.

Q:Can you remove the kids drink tray off of the stroller? Making it easier for the child to get in and out?

A:

Yes you can! There should be red button/latch that you can push while you pull the the tray out and up.

I tray doesn’t come off that way, It stays connected on one arm while you lift the tray about that arm. As I recall you could then pull the tray out from that point if you wanted to remove it.

Q:is it good on snow and grass?

A:

Actually its great on grass. Have not used on snow. Very happy with this stroller, it was a gift for my daughter and she runs with her 9 month old daily in our local park, both paved trails and thru the woods off roading. I predict it will do fine in snow.

Q:My four year old son would like to join me when I am walking but he gets tired quickly, will this be helpful?

A:

Might be a little small for a four year old but this is a well built stroller.

Q:does it have smaller pockets for keys and a cell phone?

A:

It had a small area with a lid for that.

Q:Does this have a bar brake, or do you have to lock both back brakes separately? Also, I am 5’2. Will the handle be too tall for me?

A:

Separate brakes for each back wheel. Not sure about the height and if it will work for you.

Q:Is the handle adjustable?

A:

No it’s not adjustable.

Q:What is the height of the handle bar?

A:

about 41 inches

Q:Hello does anybody know if this would work with a Britax car seat (with our without an adaptor). Thanks!

A:

No it won’t.

Q:Is there a weight capacity?. I am going to use this for 2 beagles who get tired after about 3 mile’s.

A:

I ran with a toddler about 20 lbs and that was heavy enough . It just depends on what you want to push.

Q:Do you know the dimensions folded? Also how much does it weigh ( I saw 26 lb in one place and 30 here on Amazon?)

A:

We keep it as a 2nd stroller at grandmas. I’ve only folded once. Quite small if you take wheels off. Very light. Lighter than my Bob.

Q:Does anyone know if this stroller would fit a graco snug ride carseat in it?

A:

I don’t think it would fit well. The back support is adjustable to go from 180 degrees (flat) to about 80 degrees and any angle in between. However, if you put the back down to put the carseat in it, it would not be very secure. I have the “wheels” for the Graco car seat, and the Graco stroller that the car seat fits into AND this stroller. I didn’t get this stroller until my second baby. It is definitely better than the entire huge Graco stroller once they outgrow the snap and go carseat. However, I got this stroller thinking I would jog on maternity leave and didn’t realize the…

However, I got this stroller thinking I would jog on maternity leave and didn’t realize the baby had to be 6+ months before you should go jogging with him or her! Great stroller for jogging with older baby and for strolls around the neighborhood. I no longer use the big Graco stroller at all.
