City Mini v. B-Agile

City Mini v. B-Agile

I cannot decide. Anyone have either of them and want to offer up a review? Thanks!

I don't have a b-agile but I can offer my opinion in general. All Baby Jogger strollers are incredible. They handle like a dream, fold fast and easily, and are very solid. Britax should stick to what they're really good at, car seats.

Re: City Mini v. B-Agile

I have a Britax B-Ready and really LOVE it. It's an awesome stroller and I'm considering getting a B-Agile as well. I've looked at both it and the City Mini multiple times at BBB and I'm having a hard time deciding as well. One thing that might sway me is the fact that I already have the Chicco car seat adapter for the Britax and we are traveling a LOT this summer and it would be nice to have something smaller and lighter to use on the road and in airports. I really don't think you can go far wrong with either.

I just looked at the new city mini today and loved it. I was between it and the Joovy kooper. I'm ordering the city mini as soon as I sell some woolies.

If your fine with the 2011 model (VERY little changed between it and 2012) you can get them on super sale right now with a chicco adapter for under 200.

If you don't want to pay as much as an adapter costs, carseats fit in the City Mini with the napper bar set in the lower holes at the middle position.

Re: City Mini v. B-Agile

I have a BJCM and LOVE it. I played with the B-Agile, but didn't like it. It felt more awkward, I didn't like the fold, it didn't push as well, and my DS (VERY stroller-picky) didn't like riding in it. I bought a 2011 BJCM for $150, moved my Valco Hitchhiker to the back for DD and the BJCM is now our day-trip stroller.

Re: City Mini v. B-Agile

Thanks for all the responses. I won't be having any more babies and my youngest just turned 3 so I won't be need an infant seat attachment.

We already have a schwinn double jogger and a joovy sit & stand. We keep the Joovy in the car (that my hubby takes to work) so we always have a stroller on hand if we need it when running errands on evenings/weekends. I have been using the double jogger to walk my 6 yr old to school with my 3 & 4 yr olds.

My 4 yr old will be starting school in August, so I need something for when it is just me & my daughter at home.
