If the BOB MOTION is anything like their jogging strollers, then this will be a fantastic stroller. Trust me, I had  BOB jogging stroller (sold it after I bought a double stroller and stopped jogging ) and loved it. It was big and bulky but it was sturdy and safe and strolled so well! I was sad to get rid of it but really how many strollers does one family need? Considering the MOTION is compact, full of features and has 4 air-filled tires, it will stroll as well as the BOB joggers stroll. It can become a travel system with an included adapter – perfect for infants in car seats but then the stroller can also be used with infants when the seat is fully reclined. The MOTION is expensive but if you want a stroller that is reliable, safe and strolls well then this is one to look at!
