No secondary lock for US and CA version.

Just want to mention that for US and Canada version, no secondary lock installed on the folding mechanism.When I got the stroller, I read user guide and found out that there is no secondary lock which prevent you fold the stroller accidently. My wife called customer service of Baby Jogger and they said all US and CA version, just don’t have it, although it shows on the user guide. I think they should put this claim outside the package or somewhere in user guide.Just got this stroller, no comment right now, but will update more when I have it for a while.

Best Stroller – Worth every penny

I have this stroller and I have the Second seat to make it a double. I have used it as both. Stroller is not big or bulky, it glides effortlessly, turns without a flick of the wrist, big under seat storage, the Canopy is large. I only flaws that I have noticed is the the locking thingy doesnt really like to stay locked so it makes it a little more difficult to get it in and out of the trunk of my car. Still very easy but just a little less easy when the lock comes unclipped. The second flaw is it does stroll when you have it folded. When it is in the house and we need to take it to the car you actually have to pick it up and carry it instead of being able to wheel it. Thats the only issue. Otherwise I think its light (and trust me I’m weak) its easy to use, the easy are easy to install and uninstall. I do think its a little annoying to have to have to buy every accessory that most strollers come standard with but due to the quality of this stroller I’m ok with that.

We love the flexibility of this stroller, the basket is HUGE! and I can fit a large diaper bag, blanket, and 3 plastic bags of groceries, and it doesn’t make it unwieldy. Though we haven’t used it in double mode yet, but for some odd reason it came with 2 sets of lower adapter bars. when all I needed was 1 set. I was excited to get the stroller for the features, and then I got it and found more features I didn’t know about. There is little I dislike about it.Love:front wheel lock is a slide switch on the front of the wheelsflexibility between single to doubleforever foam tires (NO FLATS / no pump needed)folds compactmultiple seat to frame positions + multiple recline positionsharness adjusted with a clip, and not un-threading through the backseat goes forward and rear facingCan be stored in vehicle without damaging strollerGenerous canopyCar-seat adapter available to purchase for infant, and doesn’t effect using second seatsecond seat doesn’t eat your basket real estatesecond seat goes in front and not under handlestroller can still be hung on handle in doubles modeadjustable handlesecond seat is the same seat as first, and thus same large canopy and reclineseat is adjustable to grow in size with child (canopy moves up, and foot rest moves down)option to add a wheelie board when you child gets older, and use back in single mode!Cons:in middle frame position, the rear seat can’t parent face easily (can be done though, recline a lil and move foot rest up)large footprint as compared to umbrella strollerno cup holder includeda parent console is hard to use when seat is outward facing on top slotCan’t start with a newborn in regular seat

Best Stroller for 2 kids (Toddler and infant)

LOVE my City Select stroller! We took it out for the first time to an amusement park on what was a very hot day. My 2.5 yr old son was comfortable in his seat and was able to take a nap. We had our 3 week old daughter in her Chicco car seat (used the adapter) and they both fit comfortably. I also purchased the glider board and my son also likes riding on it. The only down side is that you need to remove the second seat in order to collapse the stroller. I am ok with it since my son has the option to sit down on long day trips out. The stroller is very easy to maneuver even with both kids, the car seat, and the under basket filled.We tried out the Joovy & Baby Trend sit and stand but my older child didn’t like it at all. He had no room to sit or stand if I had my infant in her carseat. This stroller has many options to fit our needs. It is pricey but worth every penny.

Best stroller for twins, after much trial and error

I have the Baby Jogger City Select with Second Seat and I love it. No stroller is perfect, but of the doubles I’ve had (Maclaren Twin Tecno, Maclaren Triumph and Bob Duallie), this is my go-to everyday stroller because it is the narrowest, goes anywhere and folds compactly. If I had to do it over, this probably would have been my only stroller – I just wish I had known about it before buying the others!All these strollers can be used with my 8-month old twins and with my 41″ preschooler. However, the City Select is by far the most useful.PROS:
• The City Select has been named Baby Gizmo’s 2010 Top Tandem Stroller.
• Goes anywhere – the reason I got it. I found out the hard way that side-by-sides do not fit between parked cars – the City Select does, with room to spare. This is the most important consideration when you’re out and about with twins, so that you’re not forced to leave one child alone in front of or behind your car while putting the other one in their car seat. The narrow width of the City Select has also been a huge advantage at doctor’s offices, restaurants and stores that have narrower aisles.
• Can be used from birth up. You can configure the City Select with optionalBaby Jogger Car Seat Adaptor City Select, Singlefor one or two babies (three types sold, some car seats fit better than others) or with one or two seats (place the heaviest child in the top position); it can have stadium seating facing forward (with a huge storage basket), or you can put both seats facing you so they can recline fully @ 180 degrees (better for babies, looks like bunk beds).
• The three-part canopies are excellent and provide far more shade than most Maclaren strollers. A zip-in mesh backing can be zipped in front for additional sun shade when the sun is low (though the instructions don’t say this). A clear peek-a-boo window with built-in mesh for shade on top has a flap with quiet magnetic close.
• Total weight load recommended for this stroller is 45 lbs. per seat (combined passenger and baggage weight), so calculate 90 lbs. total max allowance with two seats. Max allowance for the basket is 15 lbs. and for each seat pocket, 2 lbs. My 14 m babies are 22 & 21 lbs., the diaper bag is 8 lbs. = 51 lbs. Still way under the limit.
• Optional carrycots are sold separately.
• The wheels work on many surfaces. I’ve been able to use the City Select on narrow paths, dirt, snow and grass. The City Selects pushes very easily on smooth surfaces, even with my 32 lb son. In comparison, the BOB Revolution Duallie Stroller in Mesa Orange is superior off-road and feels lighter to push, but is way too long to use indoors in smaller spaces. The Techno Twin and Triumph handle very well on smooth surfaces but are impossible to use in snow.
• Very compact fold. The City Select takes up half the trunk of my minivan, standing up, with all three rows up. If I need more space in back, I simply stash the stroller & seats in the second row of the minivan. In comparison, the Bob Duallie takes up 3/4 of the cargo area in the minivan. The Maclaren Techno takes up the whole width of cargo area, lying flat – it’s too tall to place upright without it hitting the heads of people in the third row.
• Huge storage basket – with the seats facing forward, the City Select has an enormous basket. I’ve been able to finally go grocery shopping and fit a fair amount of groceries underneath (up to 15 lbs, but I also use the footwells for heavier items), whether configured as a single or a double. In addition, if you put one baby facing you in the stroller in the stroller and another in a carrier such as the Ergo, one of the seats can be reclined fully to hold a shopping basket & groceries, up to 45 lbs (about 3-4 bags)- a Stroller Hook can be used to keep the basket secured to the side of the stroller.
• When the seats are rear facing as a double, storage is more limited but still generous. Zippers on all corners allow you to extend it and put in large items from the front, back or sides.
• The hand break is very easy to use and with the rubber wheels in back, provides a sure grip.
• The handle extends from 39″ to 42″ for taller parents. AMunchkin Stroller Hook, Colors May Varycan be placed on the handle to hold bags up to 8 lbs.
• I’m able to fit two 7 lb. bouncy seatsBABYBJÖRN BabySitter Balance, Brown/Beigeor two 7 lb.KidCo GoPod Portable Activity Seat – Pistachioin the storage basket – the diaper bag hanging down from the Munchkin stroller hook keeps them secure. No other double I have can do this – great for playgroups or when I need to take the babies out of the stroller for any reason and am alone.
• Many accessories – you can get many different ones but I found that stroller accessories from other manufacturers also work, at a fraction of the price.
• JJ Cole Urban Toddler Bundle Me – Stealthfit these seats perfectly and can be used Spring & Fall – go with the toddler size which you’ll use longer. LL Bean winter buntings work great in frigid winter weather. Fully reclined, the seats work like carrycots – my babies sleep very comfortably in them.
• Baby Jogger is coming out with a ride-on board for a third child in March 2010 but, if needed, the seats are wide enough (12 inches) and the canopy high enough for my 41″ oldest child. Both the canopies and the seats can be extended for older kids.
• The “Baby Jogger City Select Second Seat Attachment Brackets” are sold separately if needed on mystrollers dot com. You do not have to buy the whole second seat.
• As a sidenote, my husband did not think I needed this stroller and was quite mad when I got it. But yesterday, we did a two-cart BJs’ run (4 boxes diapers, wipes, formula, groceries etc) and had ZERO room left in the back or anywhere else of the minivan, apparently. No problem – the two seats folded flat and went in the front passanger seat well. Wheels and second seat adaptors come off easily – those were tucked underneath the seats; the frame folded flat (26″ x 21″ x 9″) and was tucked behind the second row. My hubby was stunned. All was forgiven.CONS:
• The City Select can be hard to get up and down curbs – if you’re pushing it forward; but if you pull it backwards up or down a curb, it’s no harder that any other stroller (actually a bit easier because of the larger wheels in back). I’ve even brought it up and down stairs (empty of course).
• The rain cover is not included. You can buy other brands that work though. For example, the universal Jeep rain shield fits each seat well or you can get a sngle cover for less fromSashas Kiddies Model BJCS Baby Jogger City Select Series Single Double Strollers Sun Cover(for use as a double although it works better for it as a single).
• It takes about a minute to fold and put away, as you have to take each seat off. But after last night’s BJs run, who cares!As a side note, the 2010 model costs much less than the 2011 model, which has been slightly redesigned with a firmer back and a deeper seat.

Awesome Stroller…but Pricey!

This thing is awesome for our Twins, and the modular design is extremely functional. We LOVE this thing, but it is also very pricey. I’d have to say in this instance you definately get what you pay for as it was well worth the money for us!I Love that for my newborns we can just pop in our 2 carseats in to the carseat adaptors and we can be on our way. Its extremely efficient and simple, and I couldn’t have asked for anything better. The best part though…is that its almost the same footprint as a normal stroller…(its just a tad longer) but we can walk down a sidewalk or through a crowd without bothering everyone. Fantastic Design all-around!

Great product.

Love! I have the second seat in my attic waiting for baby #2. It is a little hard to maneuver. Not a deal breaker tough. My favorite part is that it looks GREAT as a single stroller also.

For a double stroller this product is fabulous!

I’m used to my Baby Jogger City Micro (basically the cheaper version of the Mini) which was light weight, small, and easy to open/close with one hand. None of these PROS of the Micro really carried over to the City Select, but the Micro was also not a double!PROS:- Material of the seats is great. Easy to wipe clean and seemingly durable.- LOVE THE HAND BREAK! I love sandals and flip-flops and open-toed footwear is not conducive to using a stroller because you have to use your foot (more specifically your toes) to unlock the break. The hand break here is amazing! Easy to use and works great. I wish all strollers had the hand break option.- The handlebar height adjustment – this really isn’t an issue for me (I’m short) but in theory the idea of having the handlebar come up several inches to accommodate a taller person is genius!- 16 (?) different positions? If you are looking at the City Select you have already seen the photos on the various arrangements you can have with the stroller.- Use as a single or double. I wish this were my first stroller because I wouldn’t have wasted time/money. This stroller expands with your family by adding a seat and then can shrink back to a double when the older children no longer ride in the stroller.- Sun shade – is HUGE! I love that I can protect my child from the sun with the shade. I wish there were two peep-flaps like on the Micro (not a big deal). The peep flap is also magnetic – much better than the velcro (?) flaps on the Micro.- Easy to add/remove the seats and adapters to the frame.- The bottom storage is great. The frame gets in the way a bit in the back but not enough to make this a negative. I also like that I can get to the storage from the front or back.- Weight – I like that both seats are 45 lbs – from my research I believe that both the UPPAbaby and the Britax have lower weigh limits for at least one of the seats and it is mandatory that the heavier child sit in a particular place. In addition, I like that both seats are FULL seats.CONS:- Not a quick and easy open/close – this is NEUTRAL point because we are talking about a convertible single/double stroller so efficiency isn’t a number 1 priority.- Heavy, but after researching most of the single/double strollers (UPPABaby, Britax) the City Select is on-par with how much it weighs so this is more of a neutral point for me.- Lack of automatic lock. I wish the frame automatically locked together when you close it. It has the lock but you have to purposely use it (and I generally don’t).- Storage. I don’t actually know how you’d fix this (without maybe a travel bag) but I have City Select parts all over the trunk of my vehicle (seat, car seat adaptor, extra seat brackets, etc.) – its a mess. I do think a travel bag for the seat would be helpful because when you take off the seat and place it on top of the folded frame you often get wheel residue on the seat – although I tend to cover my seats with blankets before stacking for this reason.- As with all Baby Jogger strollers I wish some of the accessories (mainly the parent and child trays) were already included or were a bit less costly – not a deal breaker, but just wishful thinking.OVERALL:- For a single/double stroller this is fabulous. You get what you pay for (thankfully because it is not cheap).- If you can afford this stroller I would highly suggest it.- I would also suggest the parent and child trays (I got the BJ parent tray because it fits much better than any other, the Britax and Skip Hop trays don’t work as well – even though they are much better trays).NOTE:- I am located in a city where vehicle transportation is 100% necessary – so all of this review is from the perspective of having to remove it from my trunk and assemble the stroller every time I use it. I may give this 5 stars if I never had to disassemble the stroller or lift it in/out of my vehicle.

Researched a ton for double stroller and finally decide on this one. We wanted a double stroller that can be easily switch to a single stroller when its needed, not to bulky, easily fit into doors, can be fully reclined for nap time, can have the two kids facing each other for interactions, easy to maneuver and looks good. This stroller fits perfectly to our criteria. However, My initial worry is that my daughter would grow out of it too fast since the capacity (45lb per seat) is not as much as city mini double (50LB per seat). But I just can’t resist that you can change 16 different positions. I love how you can have the two kids face each other even though we have not using that position yet as our second baby is still too young. I love how you can fully recline when both seats face the back. My oldest daughter who is 2 yr 4mo 32lbs sleeps comfortably in it. Shes a tall girl too, but she fits comfortably in the seat and she loves this stroller too. I think I made a great decision purchasing this stroller. It is so sturdy, convenient and easy to maneuver. It is a bit heavy compare to single stroller but I can handle it very well. The car seat adapter fits perfectly for the chicco keyfit car seat that we have, so both of my daughters fits comfortably in this stroller. Would definitely recommend this double stroller.

Great variety in seating arrangements, very heavy when loaded

I debated a long time between this tandem stroller and a side by side. I live in San Francisco and planned to mostly use this for walking in my neighborhood to go to the playground and my children’s activities. My kids are 2 years old and 2 months old. The side by side doubles are definitely easier to maneuver but would be difficult to fit through some of the doorways to shops so I ultimately decided on this. I love the variety of seating positions available and it is super easy to rearrange the seats. I also like that i can convert this back to a single when my older son no longer wants to use the stroller. The biggest drawback is the weight! It is a heavy stroller and with both kids and the carseat adapter, I push about 80 pounds around my hilly neighborhood. It’s a good workout but sometimes I wish I had picked a double bob for the neighborhood walks. Who knows, I still may.
