    Anyone run with an out n about double nipper, not the sports version. Will be just for short, casual runs with a 3 and 1 yr old.

    Generally ok but avoid kerbs. No matter how slow you think you're going the buggy can flip. Saw a child face planted into the ground at a parkrun a few weeks (child was fine).

    If the front wheel doesn't lock into the straight position and is left free to wobble then be very very careful. Once you reach a certain speed the buggy will start bouncing about and could easily throw itself out of your hands and tip over.

    To run with the buggy you really do need to have a locked front wheel.

    Yes, it's fine. Grand for easy runs, slightly dodgy for racing Parkrun
