Frequently asked questions about the Baby Jogger City Select stroller

Baby Jogger City Select double stroller - RubyToday's busy mom is looking for the one stroller that will keep up with her, from day to day and year to year. The City Select stroller is a travel system, a pram, a double stroller, or just a traditional single stroller. It's the only stroller a growing family may ever need!

Can the Baby Jogger City Select have the baby facing the parent?
    In all three ways of carrying your baby (bassinet, infant car seat adapter, and stroller seat), the baby can face mommy or daddy. With only the stroller seat, having the child face forward is also an option.
What are the different positions on the City Select?
    There are more than 16 different ways to configure the City Select for one or two children; including bassinets, infant car seat adapters, and/or stroller seats:

  • The City Select was introduced in 2010 as a brand new model.

  • In 2011, the wheels were improved and the seats were improved; and the parking brake became hand-controlled.

  • There were no changes made to the 2012 and 2013 Baby Jogger City Select.

  • The 2014 City Select stroller has two new colors for the Limited Edition. Also, a difference between 2013 and 2014 City Select models is that the 2014 Baby Jogger stroller has an updated safety harness to make it easier to use.
Can you use City Select accessories with any model year stroller?
    If you have an older model City Select stroller, you can use any current accessories like car seat adapters or Second Seat Kits on your older stroller. All City Select accessories are compatible across all model year strollers.
How big is the City Select when it is folded for storage?
    When the City Select is folded with one seat, the size is 28 x 25 x 13 inches. That will fit into compact car trunks as small as Toyota Corolla, Honda Civic, Ford Focus, Chevy Cruze, Hyundai Elantra, and more. Obviously, it easily will fit larger car trunks as well.
How does the City Select compare to other Baby Jogger strollers? Does the City Select stroller ever go on sale?
    Sometimes when Baby Jogger discontinues a color or makes any change to the stroller, you may find that City Select color on sale towards the end of each year. Since the City Select came out in 2010, only the discontinued color is Diamond. Onyx, Ruby, Amethyst, and Quartz 2013 models were put on sale beginning fall 2013 until inventory ran out.
Are there different versions of the City Select?
    In 2013, Baby Jogger released a Limited Edition of the City Select stroller. The 2014 Limited Edition includes an all-black frame available with black , red, teal, or silver fabric. The stroller itself is otherwise identical to the original version of the City Select.
2014 City Select Limited Edition TealCan I run or jog with the City Select stroller?
    The City Select is not suitable for jogging or running. Confusion may come from the manufacturer's name, Baby Jogger. The company name comes from its very first stroller ever made - a jogging stroller. In 2008, Baby Jogger started making more and more models for everyday life. The City Select would be able to handle powerwalking, but not running.
What is included in the City Select stroller box?
    The stroller comes with one seat, sun canopy, stroller frame, wheels, and underseat basket.
How much does the stroller weigh?
    As a single, the City Select is 28 pounds. With the Second Seat Kit, the entire stroller is 34 pounds.
What if anything goes wrong with the stroller? Who handles it?
    Baby Jogger has exceptional customer service and quickly resolves warranty claims. All parts are covered for one year, and the frame itself is covered for life. You'd write to or call Baby Jogger at (800) 241-1848. Baby Jogger's warranty is only valid if you purchase from an authorized dealer, such as PeppyParents.

The City Select car seat adapters are compatible with UPPABaby, Chicco, Britax, Peg Perego, Graco, Maxi Cosi, and many other popular brands.
How big is the City Select box?
    The City Select stroller comes in a box measuring 28x22x10 inches and weighs 34 pounds.
How have parents been reviewing the 2014 City Select?
    There are some stroller reviews here, and then here are many more City Select reviews. Here's a recent review:

    Lolli from Washington, NJ

    • Durable
    • Easy To Clean
    • Sturdy
    • Easy To Set Up

    I spent months researching a convertible, inline double stroller and finally settled on the Phil and Teds Navigator. Then I decided to head into a baby store to try it out. Turns out, they didn't have the stroller I wanted I stock, but after hearing what I was looking for the salesperson directed me towards the Baby Jogger City Select. Wow! It blew my mind because I didn't even know Baby Jogger had a convertible double tandem stroller. It had EVERYTHING I was looking for and then some. No offense to Phil and Teds (because they are great), but this stroller has theirs beat! The stroller is extremely sturdy, well constructed, maneuvers beautifully and basically folds itself. So when I knew this was the stroller I looked online and found Peppy Parents. Never heard of them, but they had free shipping and no tax on this stroller and instant, straightforward customer service. So not only am I absolutely in love with my City Select, but am a new fan of Peppy Parents. I highly recommend both the stroller and the website to EVERY parent I know!

Does the Second Seat Kit always include the front brackets?
    When you buy from an authorized Baby Jogger dealer, the Second Seat Kit will ALWAYS include the front brackets for the stroller. With the purchase of the City Select stroller and the Second Seat Kit, that's all you need to make a double stroller.
How does the City Select bassinet work?
    The City Select has a soft-sided bassinet kit as an optional accessory. The bassinet kit includes the fabric "shell" of the bassinet, a mattress, support bars, and a matching apron that covers the top opening. The bassinet kit snaps onto the metal frame that the stroller seat users. You unsnap the seat fabric from the metal frame, and then snap on the bassinet fabric kit in a very easy installation. The City Select Bassinet Kit uses the same sun canopy as which came with the stroller seat. Because the bassinet uses the seat frame, you'll need a seat for each bassinet you wish to use (e.g., two bassinet kits will mean you need to purchase the stroller, second seat, and two bassinet kits).
Which pieces are needed to use two bassinets at the same time?
    The City Select bassinet kit is the bassinet exterior fabric, along with a bassinet mattress. The bassinet kit uses the metal frame of the City Select seat, as well as the sun canopy from the seat. So, to use the stroller as a double with two bassinets, you'll need two seat frames (i.e., one seat frame is included in the stroller box, and then you'd also purchase the Second Seat Kit at the same time).
What is the warranty?
    Baby Jogger offers a 1-year warranty on soft parts, and a lifetime warranty on the City Select frame.
