    I love my BJCS! It's so easy to steer even with the two seats on. My 4yr old can still fit in it comfortably. I'm currently using it for my 2yr old and newborn and have bub in the bassinette & DS in a seat and it's so easy!!

    I went with the compact, loved that all the extras came with the pram and you only needed to by the second seat extra. I like it was more compact as well.
    Dd would go on the capsule down the bottom and ds up the top. Ds is 4 in April and still fits.

    BJCS! I absolutely loved mine, good sized seats, HUGE basket that can still be used with both seats on, easy to pull apart and clean, no issues in shop aisles. But really for me the seating configuration was what sold me, I didnt like the idea of one of the kids being stuck underneath not being able to see anything.

    Also the BJCS has excellent resale value, I recently sold mine as a double for $700, not bad considering I paid $1000 new and used it everyday for 2 1/2 years

    I've had both and much prefer the city select over the compact. I think the select is much better quality, expensive but worth every cent

    I have the compact and have been very happy with it.
    I considered the select but having to buy all the accessories separately made up my mind to get the compact.

    Ive used it for my younger 2 for 12mths now and its been great

    City select. Strider is not nearly as good to walk with I found and lots of bubs don't like those underneath seats near your feet
