I have to admit that we've actually only used the stroller a couple of times (because there's nobody around but friends'/family's kids to coax into it so far), but have learned a lot in those experiences!

We normally don't travel with this stroller. It's simple to break down (rear wheels' quick release is awesome), but assembling is a little tough on my muscles and coordination.

We were also considering the BOB Ironman and the Tyke Tech ATX, but bought this one because of its bigger wheels, bigger canopy, and more durable/reliable parts (based on friends' experiences with 2005-2007 models of the other strollers).
Oh, almost forgot -
Six-ish weeks to go.
