    Default Baby Jogger City Select steering

    For those who have the BJCS or have even tried them in a shop with a weight in them, how do you find the steering? I'm comparing it to an Emmaljunga and a Bugaboo, both of which have superb steering, and am wondering if others find the BJCS to be a bit ordinary to steer? Or have I just been spoiled by trying the really expensive prams? The BJCS is the only one that fits ALL the criteria for what I'm looking for, but I'm not sure I'm happy with the steering so would love some feedback from those who have one.

    Hi I have BJCS and use it with my 2 DS. DS1 is roughly 14Kg and DS2 is about 11. With both of them in the pram it steers effortlessly. It's a really lovely, easy pram to use and control. I would highly recommend it

    As a single it steers fantastically, as a double, its still easy to steer but I recommend having the lighter of the 2 in the front seat, otherwise it can become a little front heavy

    it is a fantastic pram BUT i went from a stokke xplory to this and whilst in single mode i dont really notice MUCH difference, when i have a 10kg and 13kg toddler in double mode it is a tank!!!
    not really a fair cmparison as a stokke with two toddlers would probably be hard too but you do definitely have to concentrate on steering once in double mode. and lifting the front wheel up onto a curb - omg, where is that ramp instead!
    in its defence when i have the 10kg toddler out front and the 13kg toddler close the steering is easier, and the bad steering is the trade off for the toddlers having some room and the one toddler not staring at the back of the others chair. they love facing each other and i love the pram overall.
    the width also annoys me in comparison to my old stokke btw!
