I'm trying to get into running. I'm able to do lots of walking and aspire to running. I heard from a friend that the fixed front wheels are a hassle when running because you have to push down on the handle and pick up the stroller front in order to turn it. So, as a novice, I aspired to a wheel that had the option to be fixed or not.
After scanning Craigslist for a while, I decided to go for it on this one and I have no regrets. The wheel can be fixed or free moving. If you go too fast (walking or running), it seems to hit a point that the free wheel can't handle and the whole thing shimmies like crazy. But there's a nifty trigger on the handle that will fix the wheel in a locked position and the shimmy stops immediately. It's not hard to maneuver when running w/ the fixed wheel at all (don't know what the friend was talking about). The speaker is small and doesn't really offer much, but if you put an iphone in the cup holder, the shape of the cup holder acts like a speaker and amplifies the sound, so you can have music and still talk w/ your passenger. I've really enjoyed using the stroller so far, and my son has enjoyed going out in it.
So, I'd buy this again. I don't like the shimmy, and I don't like the weird extra piece part that came in the box. It's not shown in the manual, so either the manual doesn't explain what this thing is, or they sent me an extra part to freak me out. Either way, -0.5 stars.
