The Mountain Buggy Urban is more utilitarian and less elegant than a Bugaboo, and more substantial than a bike-like jogger. This less-is-more design gets my respect, though, and the well-proportioned, narrow Urban Double is probably the coolest-looking side-by-side stroller out there. [The main difference between the Urban and their other line, the Terrain, is a swivelling front wheel. Urban's got it; Terrain don't.] Overall, Mountain Buggies remind me of the original Land Rovers, the kind that actually go on safari, not the current jacked up station wagons.
[I have to say, I've never tried one out; I'm just going by my now-expert stroller-judging eye.]
The Mountain Buggy looks heavy, even with an aluminum frame, and even though it only weighs 19 lbs. Am I wrong?
