I've had the Mamas and Papas Urbo stroller.
https://www.mamasandpapas.com/.....urbo2

It folds quite flat, can be "mom facing", is under $600, seat reclines fully for newborn.

It has a longer seat than the "bee" which makes a difference if you have large babies.

I loved it.
The customer service from this company is great too.

This looks very similar to the original Bee which I had, and would fit all my critera. But it's also an old product. I am afraid of having difficulty with replacement parts or customer service for an "older" model.

Seat can face parent and street.
Easy, one-piece, compact fold as I don't live in the city so it'll be going in and out of the car often. I don't want a stroller that takes up my whole truck. This is also why I don't want a separate bassinet. I don't want to dissassemble a stroller each time I go shopping.
For reference sake, till now I had the original Bugaboo Bee and I was very happy with it. It had all the elements listed above.

Bonus: Under $1000

I don't know anyone who has it, but online I saw the bumbleride era. Looks like it meets your criteria

I watched the online tutorial. I would love to hear more from someone who actually has this because to me it seemed like it doesn't lie all the way flat. Also folding seems a tad complicated, can't imagine doing that while holding a baby. Does anyone have this and can tell me their experience?

Mamas and papas have quite a few different models, all meeting your criteria. I personally love the look of the occaro. I think they're quite easy to source replacements etc.

Another stroller that looks gorgeous is the babystyle oyster 3. seat lies flat, small fold etc.

Also what about city mini tour lux? probably similar to the bee but the seat sits higher etc.

The second one is legit. That does not mean that the first one sells only knockoffs, although I’m sure some of them are


same site. One is their mobile site. take away the "m" at the beginning and you'll get the regular site.

I do not have the Bumbleride Era however I do have the bumbleride Indie twin and I LOVE it...10 years later and it's still amazing!! It definitely goes all the way back flat. I used it with my newborn twins from the time they were a few weeks old and I was so happy I didnt need to buy bassinets. The back goes down and the front goes up a bit too. I highly recommend Bumbleride products. And yes the wheels are amazing.

These all look like great options! I need to check out exact details on each, but at a quick glance, they all same relevant. Does anyone have personal experience with any of these to weigh in?

The reason the cybex is on clearence is because they came out with a new model a year ago and it has quite a lot of differences.. But most people say the older one is better. So go for it. Albeebaby is Completely legit and u won't have any issues.
But right away as I read ur post I thought the bugaboo bee really hit it nail on.
Just so u understand.. There is no unicorn stroller. Each one will have pros and cons. You just need to figure out which has the most pros that work for you.

Look into that more because I think it does. I have the double.

I have the valco baby. It's a great stroller but doesn't lie totally flat. I'm loving it for my six month old and used it with an infant insert for head support when baby was younger. The single comes in two styles. The more expensive one can face front and back

been looking into this stroller but I am anxious about the wheels popping or needing air. How often does this happen? Have you bounced the stroller up stairs? (I only have a few to my house but other places have more)

Can't remember exactly it was a while ago I did my research. But one thing I remember is the seat doesn't fully recline like it used to.
There were other changes but I wish I remember...
