My bob duallie stroller did not go into the moving trailer as we moved cross country, it came in my car. Let’s just call it “my precious”.
When we moved in, I took my stroller out and was ready to tour the new neighborhood. I soon realized that I had a flat tire! Noooo! Panic set in as I love to walk with the kids, but my Giggles and Munchie can’t always walk too far, especially after a romp in the park!
I messaged a few friends on Facebook who love their jogging stroller, and they all suggested to get “tire slime”. “Tire slime” is a wonderful goo that goes into a tire to repairs flats. My husband put it in for me and re inflated the tire.
A week later, my other tire went flat! Gah! I was wondering why my awesome bob was so hard to push! I was also wondering why it kept pulling to one side. Slime to the rescue again! My hubby found that something from a plant had punctured my tire. Maybe something from a cactus?
As I’ve been doing about 5 miles a day with the stroller, I’m contemplating buying extra tires for my bob so I don’t get stuck without the kids main mode of transportation. Being without my bob would just be so very sad.
I have had quite a few different types of strollers, and I have to say that the bob does beat all-if you are looking for an all terrain “vehicle”. While the bob is not the most light weight of jogging strollers, it maneuvers fabulously and is great on a variety of different surfaces. We often took it to fairs and hiking, and it has worked much better than any small wheeled stroller we have. I had a baby trend stroller that stopped folding after two months. While the bob doesn’t always collapse perfectly, there are many ways to make it flatten down so it fits in any car. Taking off the wheels to make it take up even less room makes it the perfect stroller. I especially like that you can add a piece that the infant carrier that can clip into.
