Got the 2011 version of stroller and I am very happy with it!!
My other strollers were Graco travel system and double baby jogger. I sold my 2009 baby jogger double stroller because my 3 year old no longer needed a stroller. I did my research again, looked at a lot of different strollers, and narrowed it down to bumbleride flite, inglesina trip and the city mini. I decided to stick with the city mini - I love the bigger wheels, because they make the ride much smoother, and the shade is just amazing!!! I haven't seen another stroller with such shade - depending on the sun, you can partially open it (1/3rds or 2/3rds) or go almost all the way down and it has two pick a boo windows , which you can leave open or closed. They finally included the PE back support board, so there is no more slouching. My daughter (1 year old) sits in it very comfortably. The seat is also more upright - which is a huge improvement over the last year's city mini. The stroller has an amazing fold Ã¢â‚¬â€œ it folds instantaneously and very flat so it takes almost no space in the trunk!!! My first stroller was a bulky Graco, so I appreciate the trunk space. The stroller is very stylish too!! I found the orange color to be much brighter than it is on the picture. With exception of the upcoming purple city mini, IÃ¢â‚¬â"¢ve seen people with citi minis of all the colors baby jogger offers and I loved orange the best!!
The accessories for this stroller are pricey, but for some of them, like parent console, you can find a generic version. The basket is a good size but not a very easy access - I found ways around that problem, I carry some stuff in smaller plastic bags and if I take big bag with me - I unclip the basket, fit my bag into it and then clip it back up. There is an additional big mash pocket on the back of the stroller too.
Albeebaby was terrific with fast shipping and delivery of the stroller!! Shipped in 2 days and I got it delivered in 2-3 days.
