I love the Valco Baby Trimode. I have the twin, though. With the single you can buy a toddler seat attachment if you wanted to have both your kiddos ride. I love mine, it pushes very well and has AT wheels. Its not a true jogger although you can lock the wheels so that you can adjust. I also beleive the new ones have a hand break (mine doesn't).

Re: help me choose my next stroller (I want bling)

I have a baby jogger http://babyjogger.com/performancemain.htm in the double since I have twins. It's a great stroller and it is so effortless to push it. It is also pretty light weight. I can fold it up and lift it into the van. I LOVE this stroller. Oh the reason I went with this one is because the sun shade works really well. I've had several strollers where the sun shade just won't adjust enough and then my little ones have sun in their eyes. This is a great stroller.

Re: help me choose my next stroller (I want bling)

thanks for the suggestions looking them up now. I don't actually "run" but it has to be atv b/c I live in the country. I do already own a graco single jogger and a baby trend expedition double jogger.
I am looking at bob's, phil and teds and maclearens right now. I am hoping to get one with the locable front wheel.

We love our P&T! I suppose it depends on whether you plan to use the stroller with two kids or definitely just one. We went with the P&T because we plan to use it with two kids down the road, and I love the inline double idea. It's easy to push and has AT wheels, and a lockable front wheel... I use it for our stroller strides class three days a week. Someone else mentioned sunshades, and I would say that the sunshade isn't the greatest. It's OK but not as good as those on the BOB.

We have the Baby Jogger City Series. http://babyjogger.com/cityseriesmain.htm It has a lockable wheel and it folds with one hand. The sun shade is great as well. We really like it! I don't run with it though, but its good on the bumpy city sidewalks. It also worked on teh beach.
I also liked the Bob Revolution. I really wanted the P&T but it seemed longer than the Baby Jogger, but I may get that once we have two kids.

ETA: The City Series also comes apart very easy for traveling. The wheels pop off really easily and folds up nice.

Re: help me choose my next stroller (I want bling)

I'm always a fan of Phil and Ted's, expensive, I don't own one, but they're everywhere in Breckenridge (expensive ski town in CO reasonably close to us!) and they're everywhere. I loved em! Aqui

We have the BOB Revolution Duallie and it's AMAZING!!! We use this stroller for everything. I did stroller fitness classes with the boys and it was great - very nice/easy to push/maneuver, folds up fairly small for a jogger and not too heavy to lift in and out of the car. My DH still runs with them and they still love going with him. The front wheel can be set to swivel or lock and the sunshades are great. I would totally recommend it!
