I don't have a picture yet but compared to the ones I seen online this is pretty stripped down. It doesn't have a canopy and the front wheel doesn't swivel but it does have two mesh storage bags in the back.

I can't find a brand name on it anywhere, perhaps because it was a factory second. The hand brake is labelled "Tech 77' and one of the brake components is imprinted with the words "dia compe". There is one prominently placed screw with what looks like the initial M or W, in a quasi gothic style.

A latch / clasp on one of the straps is broken. One of the prongs on the part that inserts has snapped off but DH tells me we can replace that.

The canvas is very faded. The hand brake to the front wheel doesn't work but that's the type of thing DH can fix (just found this out, haven't had a chance to ask him yet).

We paid $25 for it a few years ago and it's essentially in the condition we got it. But we've only used it as a double stroller (no joggers here ).

We are asking $25.00 and it's generated more interest than anything else we listed. I'm wondering whether how firmly I should stick to my price.

Honestly, I wouldn't want to pay much for something like that if I was the buyer - $15 or so?

I would wait until a buyer comes and try and get the $25 but if they offer you $15 try and get $20. At this point I would say it's all a bonus.

I'd say if you get your $25 you are lucky. The stroller is 12 years old, you are not the original owner so the stroller could be older, possibly?. You don't know if its been recalled. Honestly, the stroller sounds like it 'on its last leg'. I would take the first offer that shows up. You paid $25.00 a couple years ago so at this point anything you get is 'bonus' IMO. A 12+ yr old stroller is well beyond its lifespan!

Agreed that if you get $25 that would be lucky, so take it. I would have given it away, TBH. That said, people do seem to be looking for joggers - specifically doubles - on CL a lot. I listed one (it was about a year old, and hardly used) and got tons of responses right away.
