    Default baby jogger city mini

    Sorry that should say 'baby jogger city select' (got mixed up).
    Thoughts on this pram please?

    I've had mine for over 2 years now and love it.. It's the longest I've had a pram for lol.. You can use bassinet, capsule, double, single- you name it. Only downfall is that it is long but I prefer that than being wide.

    I've only played with it in the shops a few times but I found it very long to push yet not long enough for some configurations. I prefer side by side prams.

    Why don't you take a look at the BJ versa then? To me it looks like a purely single version of the BJCS. I think I saw that headoverfeet just ordered one from baby on the run

    Oh okay i'll check it out. I didn't realise the select was designed more as a double, it just seemed newborn friendly whereas the others looked more like strollers for older babies.

    Oh def the versa then, just ordered mine from the US for $587 including postage (It's around $750 in Australia). Awesome pram it's basically the city mini and the city select put together.

    They say neither of these strollers are for newborns they recommend using the bassinet attachment for both. Just as a heads up
