BJ City Mini Q

Does anyone have this stroller? Do you like it?

I didn't think it was used for jogging but a rep at BRU said it could be. I'm wanting to get an all-purpose stroller but wasn't sure if this one would be a good candidate?

Thanks for any feedback!

Re: BJ City Mini Q

  • I LOVE my City Mini! It's SUPER easy to fold up with one hand and it's really light! I would definitely suggest this stroller! Hope that helps!
  • I have it, and I love it. However, if you want to do some serious jogging I would look into a bob or the city elite (I think that's what the BJ good jogging stroller is). I suppose if you only planned to do light jogging on flat surfaces that this would probably be ok.

     This.  We got a BOB and love it.  When I looked at the BJ website, I think I remember that it didn't recommend the Mini for jogging.

  • The City Mini is NOT a jogging stroller.

    That said, we have one and I love it. It handles so smoothly. The 2012 version has improvements on any pet peeves I had (like the small basket underneath is being fixed in the new version...jealous!)

    All of this.  I jog with my city mini, but I fully admit that my version of jogging right now is equivalent to some people's fast walk.  I've also only ever taken it jogging on the nice paved bike path.  That said, though - it's been great for my kind of jogging, and DH and I both completely love this stroller.  If you are a more serious runner, I agree that you should check out a Bob or City Elite or something else with the real running wheels.

    We are waiting for the 2012 to come out to buy one.  we can't wait!

  • No, it is not a jogging stroller (which can be confusing because the brand is Baby Jogger).

    But, I LOVE my City Mini.  It is a GREAT stroller!  It's pretty much my most favorite baby item.  I go for walks just so I can use it, lol.  I had it folded up in my trunk and I easily got it out of my trunk and unfolded with DS in my arms.  It's so easy to use!

    I do have a jogging stroller, a Jeep one, that will be used for jogging.  I don't jog in the winter.  The jogging stroller is big and bulky though so I wanted 2 strollers, one specifically for jogging, and one everyday kind of stroller.  The City Mini is fabulous.  I don't know anyone who doesn't like theirs!

  • Agree with all of the above-- I have the double version and it will still fit through doorways even though it's side by side.  Very easy to "drive"  :)

  • Love it- it is NOT a jogger though as PPs said.  BRU employees aren't always that well-versed in the products they carry...

  • We have both the single and the double. Love them both!! Only drawback is the small, not easy to access basket.

  • I LOVE mine! I just got it. BRU has them for $149.99 now, of course, after I spent $199!

  • Hi!  I love our city mini but it is *NOT* for jogging - you can do a power walk but in order for a stroller to be used while jogging it must have larger, air filled tires and a shock system, or else the stroller does not absorb the bumps and can be rather uncomfortable for baby.

    otherwise, yes the CM is great.  I've been using it with our car seat attached since 3 weeks old.  its easy to fold and super light.
