Great maneuvering and versatile, heavy though
May 12, 2014
At first I loved my city select for a double stroller, it moves just like a single, almost better actually. But the more I use it, the more I dislike it...after spending over $1200 on all the pieces we need, I'm ready to sell it. If you're looking for a mall stroller, then it's great, except for bottom basket access for shipping. But again with it turning on a dime, it's really nice for small stores etc. But for any outdoor use, it's limited. It does ok on bumpy terrain but it definitely can't be used for JOGGING as the name implies. Even with the front wheels locked straight (as opposed to swivelling) after about 9km/hr the front wheels shimmy, rattle and seem to want to come flying right off. Also I thought I would love the option of all the configurations of seats, but now that we are using 2 seats (instead of one seat and infant car seat) I'm realizing that there aren't many options. Neither seat is able to recline (for a sleepy child) in any configuration. Lastly, it is heavy and cumbersome to take in and out of the vehicle. As a double, one seat needs to be removed to collapse oh and the handles to pull up to collapse it are very hard and sticky, making it a 5 min process for collapsing. Plus beware, aluminum is reeeally cold in the winter, so it is not fun to take this in and out of the car or truck when it's cold out! Overall I am not nearly as happy with this stroller as I should be for $1200 (2 seats, car seat bar, rolling stand, cup holder) and the kids don't even have a snack tray. Oh also the seats wear quickly and the seatbelts twist and frey very quickly.
