Baby Jogger City Classic

I thought I would leave my own personal review of the new Baby Jogger City Classic that Baby Gear Exchange now carries for all you parents doing research for a new stroller. First of all, I know what it’s like to do serious research for a stroller. I spent weeks researching/testing double strollers. We definitely love the double we finally purchased, but during my search I really wanted to mix features from one brand with another and another, then I believe I would have had the PERFECT double stroller.

Anyhow, we specifically sought out Baby Jogger to be able to carry their line of strollers. We were able to arrange with them to sell their 2009 City Classics, which I am so pleased to feature. I love the Baby Jogger brand as their strollers have so many amazing, convenient features. My two most favorite aspects of the Baby Jogger are the multi position canopy and the patented fold. Other advantages of the stroller that I love are the lockable swivel wheel, so I can use it for light jogging. I love the roomy seat – if I have to spend hundreds of dollars on a stroller I hope that I can use the stroller for years to come. Some strollers only fit babies up to 35 lbs, but the Baby Jogger City Classic can hold up to 75 lbs and the seat is very roomy - a 5 year old could easily fit. For newborns you can add the baby bassinette so the baby is even more comfy in the stroller. Alternatively, you can purchase the car seat adapter and use City Classic as a travel stroller. There are so many add ons you can purchase for the Baby Jogger, which is why this brand is so convenient (check out their website for features of their available add-ons). I like the toddler jump seat, which is a little seat that attaches to essentially convert your single into a double stroller.

I also appreciate the light weight of the stroller. The single is amazingly light – I can easily collapse, carry, and lift the City Classic with one hand (thanks to the patented wheel). The double is also light when compared to other doubles (much lighter than the BOB).

The under storage is ample – it’s easy to get to if you insert through the sides. I love the adjustable handle bars, the padded seats, the 5 point harness, and the FLAT recline. I’ve tested all strollers – NO stroller has a recline that compares to Baby Jogger’s. Also, the push is very smooth. It easily maneuvers in tight spaces. I can really go on and one about the City Classic. Overall, when compared to other joggers/strollers Baby Jogger stands out in the following features:
best recline, best canopy coverage, best/easiest fold, best price, best fit for babies (newborn – school age).

Please feel free to visit our store to test drive this stroller or email us if you have any questions about the features/pros/cons of the City Classic.

Please leave any comments to this entry – we love to hear any other stories/reviews from parents that love their Baby Jogger too.
