Great simple stroller for everyday
May 16, 2011
We had twins first and the City Mini Double worked great as a lightweight stroller I could keep in the back of the car for running errands, etc. When baby #3 (a singleton) arrived I initially wanted a single City Mini but just couldn't justify the price - especially since I had the wonderful double version (that was pretty expensive but worth it). So I decided to try to City Micro because it was such a great deal - a Baby Jogger stroller for less than $100!
I'm completely pleased with my purchase. It is true the City Mini has a LOT more bells and whistles - more seat padding, bigger basket, adjustable harness (top part), bigger canopy, etc. If you're a first time mom, then I recommend you splurge on the City Mini - you'll love it! If you have other kids and remember how quickly they grow out of everything, including strollers, and/or want a solid but less expensive back-up stroller then the City Micro it is!
For it's purpose this is a terrific stroller - you won't find anything as good for the price. However, I assume these are marked down and colors are sold out because Baby Jogger is discontinuing them. So, now is a great time to snatch up one of these great deals!
best folding of ANY stroller
easy to engage/disengage the brake
Baby Jogger construction
my daughter loves it
Cons:would like a bigger canopy, more seat padding and a larger basket if I were paying more for a stroller
