hands down awesome. fits through doorways, easy to fold. i can lift it into my van cargo space(im 5'1 and 110lbs) super easy to manuever. i got mine for $200 on CL
The folding looked like a lot of steps, lol! But I guess you get used to it?

Thank you so much for this! I really like the Zooper and I think it would be great for newborns,, but I'm only buying one stroller and you helped me realize that this one won't cut it for me over the long term.

Yes! I LOVE my Baby Jogger City Mini double!! We didn't get it til DS2 was 2 months, but it reclines fully flat, so it works just fine for newbies if you don't want to buy the attachment for the bucket seats.

I have not met a door I can't fit through and it pushes easier than my single. I can steer it one handed with my 2 year old and 9 month old in it while I pull my DD's bike to the bike rack when we walk to school.

I think they're around $450 new? But I found mine on CL for $250 and it was barely used.

I really like what I've seen of the City Mini, love the way it folds! The website says it reclines almost flat, but one review said that it reclines flat for a newborn - what are your thoughts on that? I'm unsure if I would get the carseat attachment, or just wait until the twins are older to use it.

It's not a jogging stroller, but does it do okay for jogging?

Thanks for the heads up! My ideal stroller will lay flat for newborns, fitting the car seat is secondary, but I do like having the option. Assuming I find a stroller for newborns, I don't think I would buy the car seat adaptors unless we found it to be too much of a pain. If we find the perfect stroller but it didn't fit newborns, I would use my single plus a wrap until they could use the other. I'll be doing most things without a car, I don't think I'd use the car seats at all during the week!

Just saw this, love that it reclines for newborns! I see a lot of love for this stroller on here.

Has anyone used the City Mini GT? It seems like it might be able to handle jogging/off road a little better.
