Switch It Up: Baby Jogger City Select Single/Double Stroller

Around this time last year, I was entering my third trimester with our second child.  Anticipating the logistical juggling act of 2 under 2 with great trepidation, I was in the market for a double stroller roomy enough to accommodate our tall toddler and the new babe, yet small and flexible enough to service our highly mobile urban lifestyle.

After much research, I narrowed the field to a BOB Revolution Duallie, the Bumbleride Indie Twin, and the Maclaren Twin Techno.  I had considered Phil N’Ted’s various in-line buggies with double kits, but didn’t like the low second seat – seemed like one kid got to ride first class and the other got stuck in coach.  I ended up with the Maclaren mostly due to size and portability.  (In retrospect I would have preferred the smooth handling of the BOB or Bumbleride, but that ship has sailed…)  Maclaren actually recalled the Twin Techno strollers this year due to people getting fingers pinched (or clipped off!!!) in the folding hinges, but we seem to have bought ours after they realized what was happening since it came with the hinge guards Maclaren is issuing via the web site to anyone who needs them.

Long story short, Baby Jogger stepped up to the plate this year, bringing modern moms a single/double convertible stroller that promises a premium ride along with ultimate flexibility.  The City Select is a single stroller with a patented second seat attachment method.  Patented, you say?  Method? Yes, friends – rather than a one-way add-on, Baby Jogger opted for a high degree of customization, allowing *at least* 16 different combinations of toddler seat, infant car seat, and bassinet on a compact four-wheeled chassis.

This stroller will be a smart buy for people just starting out on a multi-child family, but it rates expensive if you’ve already invested in a single stroller of comparable quality.  To use the City Select for double-strolling, you’ll need the base stroller + second seat kit, and probably would want the car seat kit as well – so your inital cost is around $600 ($499 for the single).

**FEB 2011 UPDATE: Baby Jogger has the City Select on sale for 30% off – so $349 for the single and $129.99 for the second seat attachment (car seat attachment kit still $59.99) bringing the doubles “kit” down to $540…

[…] talked a bit on GaGaGear about single-to-double convertible strollers (from BabyJogger and Bugaboo) – but if your toddlers are spaced so a double just isn’t practical, […]
