So I posted to my local online mothers' group looking for a secondhand BOB Duallie, and no one has one. But I have now been offered a practically new Schwinn double and a 4 year old Valco jogging double for about the same price. The Valco is obviously the better stroller, but will it have held up over 4 years?

I need to give these two women an answer . . . anyone have any input for me?

If it's been used much for jogging over those 4 years, I would be worried about spending much on a 4 year old stroller, even a good brand like Valco, and would be more likely to get the almost-new Schwinn. While not as fancy/expensive, they do get pretty good reviews!

I'd go for the valco!

Can you see it first and then decide? If it looks good, I bet it is good.

HTH!

We're going over tomorrow morning to check out the Valco, and if it's good we're going to buy it. If it's not, we'll get the Schwinn. I wasn't sure these moms would be so understanding about my need to check out the goods first, but they're both being really great.

Valco, hands-down. You can see it's a better-made stroller even in the online photos. And it has four wheels. Do not under-estimate the importance of four wheels for stability on even small inclines. I'm actually surprised three-wheeled strollers get the safety certifications (looking at how parnoid safety standards seem to be with many other childrens products).
