I need suggestions for a double jogger stroller! I have a Schwinn, but the front wheel doesn't swivel and i hate it because it's so hard to turn! 

So i want one that has a front swivel, and is good for long legged runners. I'm considering one of those that changes into a bike trailer too!

Swivel wheels are actually dangerous for running so a fixed wheel is recommended! As for tall runners I am tall and have a bob... But I think your best bet is to go to a few stores and try a few models because everyone is different with what works an doesn't work :)

Are all fixed wheels hard to turn? I mean this thing is SERIOUSLY hard to take even a slight curve with. I literally have to lift it off the front wheel and swivel it on the back wheels to get it to do anything but go straight. Super hard to run with!

Yeah could be your stroller isn't very good for the weight you have... Like I said shop around :) swivel wheels have caused a lot of injuries to children/babies/ moms is all.. I have to push down with my double sometimes too.. Not so much with my single

1 mom liked this

It was a Schwinn Arrow (I say "was" becuase i sold it yesterday, i hated it that much! lol!) my kids aren't huge, by any means. Pretty average sized 2yo and 3.5yo. 

I'll have to go test drive some others!
