    Default Help Please. Baby Jogger City Versa Question.

    Would I be crazy to buy this online without having road tested one in store first? It's from a legit store it's just that it's being discontinued and I can't seem to find one in a store close by to try out.

    I've read all the great reviews about it so what would be the downside of not trying one first?

    We've got a rental Capsule & Stroller which is due to be returned in two weeks. I spent all day out window shopping yesterday. One day of that is more than enough for me so if you've got one of these or had one, should I just go for it and tick one more job off my list.

    I had a versa until I needed to upgrade to a double and it was the the best purchase I made. I miss it and hate my new select in comparison. I really don't think you'd be disappointed in the pram 😊

    I've had my versa for 3.5 years, still love love love it!!! My friends who have pushed it have all commented on how easy it is to steer and how smooth it is

    Thanks ladies

    It's not the kind of pram I originally started looking at but I can't ignore the great reviews.
    I would be using it three to four times a day at least, is it easy enough to collapse? Is it heavy?

    It is a bit heavy when you don't remove the seat, I usually do as I like to have her in rear facing mode mostly and that fold is a bit bulkier than folding it in forward facing mode. Have you seen this review? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jKAnhKsc1Ik

    I bought it online and hadn't seen it in person either, I wasn't disappointed

    Can you tell me where you got it from for a good $? I had one and sold it a few months ago for a double. About to get the select but won't be long I need a double for and seriously the versa was the best ever pram. I am having second thoughts on the select and thinking i should get another versa.
