Pram OK but not sure if I would buy another.
Nice enough pram with decent size wheels, easy to use on most terrain, kid seems to like it.
Not without faults
1. Creaky frame, I have added some big pop rivets where the tubes enter the hinges and it is now quiet.
2. As mentioned in other reviews, brake drums can scrape on hub making noise, usually fixed by removing/refitting wheel.
3. Poor after service, the hand brake cable broke and I was basically told I broke it as I wasn't running when I used it??? After much back and forth they supplied me the new cable and I fitted it, all good no...
Good all-rounder... but not ideal for a running
Very easy to fold and quite easy to pick up and get into the car... doesn't take up the whole boot either which is nice. I like the adjustable handlebar and the backrest adjustment, both simple and easy to use. The seatbelt is amazing... 5 point harness which locks each point separately and best part is one click and your out. Sunshade is short however you can unbutton it to position for better coverage which is a great design idea. As for running, unfortunately not as easy to manoeuvre as other prams I have used. The new and improved suspen...sion left alot to be desired... suspension is only on the rear wheels. The wheel locking is manual which again is not as good as other prams I have used but not terrible. The build quality apears ok, looks like a nice neat clean pram... I recommend only for all terrain walking...
Light and versatile, but a hard run
I spent months researching the best hybrid pram, one that I could use at the shops if need be, but most importantly one I could run with. Prior to falling pregnant I was running marathons and having tge freedom to get out and run when I could after having bub was very important to me. Based on my research this was the best option with its light weight, suspension, lockable front wheel and hand brake which was very important to me. The pram performs great off road and the suspension is great over all sorts of terrain, however I found running wit...h it difficult for a couple of reasons 1. When running at any sort of speed the back wheels wobble 2. No matter how much we tighten the handbrake its not particilarly strong 3. Its pretty hard to push on bitumen, which means I gave to try and plan my run around concrete bike paths. For the expense I would expect the pram to be a bit more rigid, in trying to make it light weight I think some structural integrity has been sacrificed (hence the wobbly wheels).I have a Toyota Carolla four door hatch and it just squeezes in the back on its side with both rear wheels removed (and our parcel shelf taken out of the car). This is generally a fantastically light weight, easy to push and versatile pram if you're not an avid runner. We have ended up using an Ergobaby carrier while out walking and I try to go for runs when bub is being minded by someone else. In hinsight it might have been better to get a dedicated running pram, but I'm not sure they'd handle uneven terrain as well. Light weight, lockable/swivelable front wheel, adjustable handle bar, large rear wheels, easy to pish while walking, great on all terrain, sun and shade cover are effective, two water bottle holders Wobbly rear wheels, handbrake not strong enough, hard to push while running on most surfaces except smooth concrete, suspension means small bubs bounce around a lot if running at speed, expensive

Questions & Answers
How is the 5 point harness for ease of strapping in your wiggly child? I'm worried that with 4 clips to fasten, instead of 2, I will quickly grow to dislike MB.
My terrain only has two, the shoulder clips are seperate and don't need to be undone and done back up again. My second child is especially wriggly and so far so good!!
What age can you use from & until?
Baby needs to be seven months. That was one down side - but it is reasonable in my opinion due to safety concerns. Our little girl is 2 and a half nearly - she still fits very comfortably and certainly wont be too big any time soon. We still love the pram.
My husband is 6.4f and wants to use the MB for running. Is this pram suitable for someone tall and how
much weight can the MB hold? As our son is nearly 2yo.
It would be perfect for running but I would be concerned about your sons head height while sitting in the pram. I am finding the roof canopy can touch my daughters head depending on her position although you can take it off (my 16month old hates wearing a hat!). You can recline the seat to any position though which is handy. My husband is the same height and he adjusts the hand bar all the way up and finds that really comfortable. We live on a farm and find the MB really practical and tough. Hope this helps
The handle bar is adjustable so it would be perfect for all heights to run with! As for the maximum weight load it would be best to check on the MB website. I am guessing a two year old would probably be ok.
