I was so happy that I did it because I didn't want to pay $500 for a second Cybex pram and adapter. Mounting was minimum; mounting the bikes, trays and drink holders only took about 5mins. Even when collapsed, the pram does not take up too much room in the boot.
If you need a sturdy pram for many exterior applications, I wouldn't suggest it, but great if you only need a base to mount a car seat.
Baby carriage make evaluation: The Cosi Maxi
A few years ago, in order to strengthen the brand's effort at the top end of the pram segment, the company took its Maxi Cosi and Quinny affiliates in Europe to the USA. In the USA Maxi Cosis's primary attention is on automobile seating, but they have dipped their toe into the baby carriage area.
Let's begin with the Kaia, a light rainmobile ( $135; 15 lbs.). Kaia is collapsed and works with Maxi Cosi's Mico child safety chair (adapters included). Maxi Cosi recommends the use of this pram (without auto seat) for infants over six month of age.
A plus: The Kaia has a large clearance (12?) between sit and legrest, a plus for small children with longer feet. It has a one-hand fully adjustable saddle and incorporates a Maxi-Cosi child saddle adaptor. Meanwhile, Maxi Cosi has also launched the new Dana For2, a side-by-side twin raincoat ( $400, 28 lbs.).
They can use two child safety chairs and fold the pram into a vertical postion. It is only 31? wide with baby chairs, 35 with two mounted cars chairs (the default width of the doors is about 32?). The Maxi Cosi Taxi can hold Maxi Cosi child safety chairs - or any chair suitable for Maxi Cosi adaptors such as the Cybex Aton.
The Maxi Cosi competes with the Baby Trend Snap N Go: the Maxi Taxi ($130, 14.7 lbs.). Featuring an umbrella-like, stand-up flap, it will fit any Maxi Cosi child chair (or child chair designed to be fitted with Maxi Cosi adaptors such as the Cybex Aton). After all, Maxi Cosi is the latest version of the Adorra ($400 alone; $600 with a Mico Max 30).
The full sized (26 lbs.) pram features a large cage, invertible backrest, elongated hood with peakaboo windows, medium-sized castors and auto adaptor. Many of Maxi Cosi's heavy duty cars from recent years have been thrown off the shelf. Kaia is probably more in line with the overall design trend - a high-end baby carriage screen that weights only 16 pounds.
The Kaia's response has been largely overwhelmingly encouraging, although the restricted cover of the porch and the partially adjustable backrest suggest that it is more suitable for older children's families on shopping outings. Dana, which will be replacing Kaia, will be an upgrade with its full back and larger cushion.
Maxi Taxi's response has been very encouraging. And the only problem: it's the most costly automobile seating bracket on the block, among them Graco's Snugrider and Chicco's Keyfit Caddy.
