I think their functionality really depends on the age difference. I wouldn't have it for twins, but my two will be 26m apart. My DS doesn't sleep in the pram, so I don't need his seat to recline. I have a capsule for when dd arrives, and she'll be up top. She'll be able to snooze in the capsule for at least 6m (s&s unity), and by then, DS will probably want to be walking. Of course, if it doesn't suit you, sell it and replace it. They do resell well and hold much more value than striders.

Love mine it drives really easy and the positions suit my toddler and bub. And I can use it as a single or double pram just by taking a seat off (very easy).

I love mine!
Kids are 2 years apart and it works so well for us!
Yes, bassinet at the bottom sux, but that was only for a short time.. At least it takes a basinette with another seat .
Sell it, it won't stay around long!

I didn't love mine either. As soon as DS1 was old enough I swapped backed to a BJ Elite for DS2.

I'm not a fan. I went into the shop with my mind set on a bjcs. Loaded my 18kg DD and 10kg DS into it and absolutely hated it. Struggled to push it around the aisles of the shop and was really annoyed with it. DH suggested we try the strider plus so we put the kids in that one and absolutely loved it! Beats the bjcs hands down for maneuverability.

Yep! I'm the same as you. Everyone raved about it so I bought it for baby number 2. Sold it after 4 months and bought something more compact. I hated how big and bulky it was.

I have a very tall almost 4yo and 7mo baby and I think it's great. The 4yo doesn't sleep in it and only sits in her seat when I need to scoot around quickly or going to the city or somewhere like that. Otherwise she is happy to walk and it means I can recline bubs seat in whatever direction. Try having them both facing you. I've found that seems to give the most room and I can recline the baby a bit before it interferes with the 4yo.

For the record I think it drives great and the basket is nice and big and it is wide but not as wide as a double pram I dont think...
If both kids liked to be upright its a great pram - just stupid there is only one position where they can both recline thats all...

I went from an orbit by steel craft to a city select and omg it's a dream .... I was testing and research through my pregnancy and my next choice was a icandy which I disliked the lack of choice re seating positions I dislike having a newborn underneath and the select was the only one that I could have my toddler on the front and the newborn top facing me they only other company that do a pram like that is Greco and it's not in Australia as it didn't meet our standards would change for the world
