    Okay, so I made an offer on a used BOB Revolution stroller for $150 so I am not expecting anything awesome and I can return it in 7 days so I want to get this thing put together and try it out as much as possible before the 7 days is up. They didn't put instructions with this, and I can't figure out how to get the front wheel on,  does anybody know of any good videos I can watch because the instructions I printed are not saying anything about the two nuts on both sides of the front wheel and then the lever thingy. I take all 4 nuts off and it doesn't fit into the forks at all, I put one on each side and I can only get one side of the wheel fixed in. Can somebody help me?

      Figured it out, but I think I am going to return it and get something not so used... and one without a funky smell Sad

        FWIW

         

        I had a bob revolution, got it used (I think for 200ish).  Ran with it for a couple of months, raced some local 5ks and 10 milers (and even won a few times!) and really liked it.

         

        Eventually a sponsorship I was working on with BOB came through and they sent me the Ironman one (so I sold the other one).  It's essentially the same but the front wheel does not swivel and it's more like bike wheels.

         

        Anyway, I've put in a lot of good miles with the BOBs.  I really like what I have.  I REALLY wanted a Chariot X2 (I think that was the name) but it wasn't in the stars.  Still, the BOB is great and my twins can go for about an hour, hour and a half in it (they're 13 months now).  Smooth ride.

         

        Good luck!  Glad you figured out the wheel!

          I am definitely considering the Sport Utility version.....or the Stroller Strides one.
