to push through narrow spaces

A pram with two wheels like a bike, ofcourse it would have to have some sort of crazy and insanely complicated gyroscopic device to stop it from falling over but it would be great to take on bush walks and stuff where there is a narrow track. Maby it could have offroad wheels and suspension too.

       This might be good if you have a baby that's only a couple of inches wide. :) Otherwise, wouldn't a 4 wheeled version be fine if the wheels were inset a bit. It would be more stable than a 2 wheeled version, but less stable than the traditional version and so could still benefit from gyroscopic contraptions for added safety.   

       This brings to mind the one-wheeled gurney (litter, stretcher) used by rescue personnel to transport patients in rough terrain (mountain rescues and the like).

       Why not just ditch the back wheel and model it on a wheelbarrow?
