Anyone have any experience with/ reviews on the Baby Jogger City Select - considering it for new twins. Thanks!

This is the one I chose for my twins. Since they haven't been born yet, I'm not sure how it will be when there are actual babies to put in it, but I've pushed it around & it's really light & easy to maneuver (my 5 year old spent hours pushing it around the house--and didn't bump into any furniture!). The seats are easy to take out and put back in, in whatever arrangement you want. So far, I'm happy with it.

I looked into this one when I was pregnant. I LOVED that it could be my "all in one", or so I thought. Once I started playing with the seats though, I realized that after they're not little babies anymore, there really aren't that many configurations that would work without them kicking eachother in the head or in the shins and such. Especially if they're tall (my DH is 6'4" so anticipate some height). Also, I loaded it up with some laundry detergent at the store and found that it wasn't so easy to maneuver. I ended up with a side by side because I could push it easier and maneuver it with one hand.

I think it depends on what you want it for.
I was looking for an all terrain stroller so Id only have to buy one.
I wanted something I could take on trails as well as mall, etc...
I tried it out in store & its a great stroller but the stroller pro staff @ Magic Beans said it was not great all terrain.
Also a friend has the stroller for toddler & baby & she said it was sometimes hard to manuever. I guess you avoid that problem when they are both the same size.
I also wanted a stroller I could attach a buggy board too while its possible I think its harder to move.
I went with City Elite.

i tested it out with the 2 bassinet seats and 2 car seats and i found it a little long, heavy and awkward to push-with 2 regular seats it wasn't as bad though

Oops...I think I'm thinking of the wrong stroller. I got a side-by-side. Sorry!
