City Select Stroller?

I was leaning towards the Britax B-Ready but then I saw this and liked that it's not as bulky but it hard to fold. Wondering if maybe the one I saw in store was defective? I could only pull on one side at a time. Or am I just too weak for this? 


Re: City Select Stroller?

  • I can't comment on the Select but have a B-Ready. I think it's a bit wider but isn't as long front to back. I've been happy with it as a single but will be my double in a month or so.

  • We started with a B-Ready and after about 5 months I started to hate it :( it was just so big and bulky for one baby.  We got a B-Agile and I LOVE that stroller-it's so light and easy to use!

    We will have number two in March, so I do want a double.  I played with the City Select a ton in BBB and that's what we are going with.  I think its actually easier to fold than the B-Ready was.  I feel like it pushes much nicer than our B-Ready ever did too.  The other plus is that as a double, the seats are the same size; where the B-Ready has a smaller second rumble seat.

  • Also, if you look up Lucies List, she does some pretty great stroller reviews, including these two strollers.  It's really kind of a toss up between the two.

  • Some days I have to pull one side at a time and others I can do both at once.

  • sometimes the sides stick a bit and which makes it harder to close. my mom is older and has a lot of trouble closing it. she bought a citi mini double which is way easier to open and close and has a slightly smoother ride, but i don't think is as nice a stroller. the best thing about the city select is the basket. it's awesome.

  • Tried it at another store and it was a piece of cake! Now to decide between this, the City Versa or the UppaBaby Cruz. 


  • We have the Britax b agile with the newborn carrier attachment and LOVE it. We looked at the city mini strollers too but liked the material and feel of the Britax better. They are very similar though.
