Summary: There is really nothing to assemble. Just put the 3 wheels on and that's it. It rolls very very well. I think it a much better one than the Bob. My grand-daughter did not like the Bob! She cried when I placed her on a Bob stroller. With this one, she loves it and is willing to sleep on it. She is about 14 months old and is tall for her age. When pull back, the canopy does not touch her head like the Bob does. I am so so glad I got this instead of the Bob!!!
Summary: I spent quite a lot of time comparing Baby Jogger and - BOB Revolution. Almost made my order for BOB until I read some newest reviews by BOB users - parents said that BOB is perfect for those who pushed the stroller, but the user - the little one - tends to slouch. I immediately bought this one instead, and it turned out to be a correct decision. My 6-month old never slouches inside. But she is still a little bit ...
Summary: I spent hours and hours researching strollers (more than I've ever spent researching cars, I'm sure). I FINALLY decided on the Baby Jogger City Classic, and I'm so glad I did. It turns on a dime. The umbrella is unbelievable. The folding mechanism is fast and easy. It's compact. The handle is height adjustable! And, best of all, my little girl sits up straighter than she would in most jogging-style strollers. She's nearly completely upright.
Summary: We've only used the stroller a few times so far, as our baby is only 4 months. I love the one-handed lift to fold and the one-handed lowering of the seat back. Manuvering is great. I park it in the closet and wheel it right out the door, through narrow doorways no problem. I have experienced the back getting to heavy and the stroller wanting to tip. Now I'm aware of this I put things in the bottom pocket rather than the back pocket.
Summary: We bought our first Baby Jogger 10 years ago, and loved it. Now we have a new baby and bought a new Baby Jogger, and it is even better. The bassinet is a great addition and was well worth the price, altho in my sleep deprived state, I did have a momentary problem trying to figure out how to install the bassinet. It was intuitive, but not supported by the manual (written or on-line). Don't worry--- it was easy once I sat down and thought about it.
Excerpt: Baby Jogger City Classic Single Stroller - Red/Silver The Baby Jogger Classic City Series swivel wheel strollers have quickly become the envy of the stroller industry. They are lightweight but with extreme maneuverability. It's the only swivel wheel stroller on the market that utilizes our patented Quick-Fold Technology, making the city Series the only strollers you'll ever need.
Summary: I'm an avid runner and have been dealing with the Baby Jogger company for many years and have always found them to be excellent. For example, I didn't read the directions for the City City Series, ran with the jogger and the wheel started to wobble. My fault but they replaced the whole jogger for me anyway. Their strollers are very hardy. My favorite is one I purchased 5 yrs ago and has been through many miles of marathon training with us in all weather conditions!
Summary: I invested in this stroller due to great reviews on this site and others, however I am disappointed. This stroller has so many WONDERFUL features, however,the foot brake spontaneously releases on our stroller and this is a HUGE safety concern for us. Last time it happened at the zoo and my son rolled down a huge hill and a nice man stopped him (thank goodness)! The other thing that happened was that a metal rod popped out on the sunshade.
Summary: The Baby Jogger City Series strollers are fabulous products, but they are categorized incorrectly on this site. They are not running strollers. They are suitable for brisk walking and very light jogging. Comments from The Staff: Thanks for re-emphasizing this point. JoggingStroller.com agrees that the Baby Jogger City Classic is a fantastic stroller suitable for brisk walking and very light jogging.
