The Tike Tech All-Terrain X3 Sport Twin is well liked by owners who must negotiate difficult terrain such as gravel driveways or dirt roads. When the stroller's put to harder use, however, complaints about its quality and durability seem to outweigh the compliments. We found a number of gripes about the fixed wheel from parents who weren't aware they had purchased an all-terrain, fixed-wheel stroller. Several unhappy owners wish they had paid a bit more and gone with the BOB Revolution Duallie .
In addition, there's a disconnect between the manufacturer's website and the X3 Sport Twin's specs as to its minimum age suitability: The former says it fits newborns and toddlers, but the specs limit use to six weeks and up. The website may refer to newborns riding in an optional bassinet or car seat, which cost extra.
We found no expert reviews of the Tike Tech All-Terrain X3 Sport Twin, but BabyBargains.com discusses the Tike Tech brand in general, including relevant durability issues. There aren't many user reviews, either, but owner feedback at Amazon.com is helpful in determining how the stroller operates in real-world situations.
