    Sorry to crash but I just brought one as well!!!! Was also tempted with red but thought black would stay cleaner as this needs to last at least another baby!!!! So excited!!!

    No, I hate them with a passion. They are longer than a limo and drive like a pig with two kids in them. Give me a nice side by side with pneumatic tyres (mountain buggy, bugaboo donkey) any time.

    I'm not a fan of the bjcs either. I borrowed one once, and found the shopping basket really small, and it didn't manoeuvre well.

    Are you sure it was the city select? The basket is HUGE on them (I don't think you would find a bigger one on any pram) and it steers like a dream one-handed. I've had mine a while now and used it single and double with no problems what so ever.

    ETA... I got the red. It's completely machine washable so not too worried about the dirt showing.

    It was, but I just did a Google images search, and it didn't look like the more recent ones! Maybe I borrowed an older version?

    The new one looks very much like the Strider, which I love, and the basket looks similar too.

    Hmm.. Strange!

    You know, I have googled and researched prams non stop for like two full weeks. Some say for a big toddler and baby this is the way to go, some say the strider is better, some say Phil and Ted's, I guess it's personal preference and unfortunately you won't know til you get your pram. For me, I hope this one is it for me! I hate my Phil and Ted's they are so ugly looking I reckon, not a big fan of the strider either. If I only had one child and was planning no more I would have kept my mountain buggy urban jungle. That was the best I have owned to date, I really hope I love the bjcs!

    I was exactly the same, loved my mb to pieces! All the reviews I read said to put the heavier child closest to you and It steers better with two. I've done this and found it to be great. I had the strider and sold it, I played around with the new compact strider in the shop and it may be slimmer than the older model, but it felt just as crappy. You won't regret buying a bjcs, I love mine and I'm coming from a mb too (with a tall toddler and a newborn)
