Title: Stroller having a brake device

Abstract: A stroller with a brake device which has a mounting seat mounted between two upright rear rods of the stroller. An operating member has a slidable mounting portion mounted slidably on the mounting seat, an operating portion, and a downward extension which is connected to a transverse linking member that has two opposite ends connected to two brake members. The brake members are pivoted to the rear rods about a horizontal pivot axis. The operating member is operable for turning rearward to cause the slidable mounting portion and the transverse linking member to move rearward relative to the mounting seat so as to enable the brake members to pivot in a direction for moving to a braking position, where the brake members engage two rear wheels of the stroller to stop rotation of the same. The operating member is further operable for turning forward to cause the slidable mounting portion and the transverse linking member to move forwardly relative to the mounting seat so as to enable the brake members to pivot in an opposite direction for moving to a releasing position, where the brake members are disengaged from the rear wheels.
