Customer Review

on July 3, 2011
Pros
+ Extremely well built. No creaks or wobbles.
+ Large, positively positioning canopy. The canopy folds nicely.
+ Super simple fold. You don't need an engineering degree to figure out how to fold this thing.
+ One handed, light steering. Very agile even with one hand.
+ Not too large. You won't block the whole supermarket aisle.
+ Solid, one foot brake. A metal shaft positively locks the wheels (as opposed to a friction style brake)
+ Infinite seat back adjustment. The back goes almost completely prone.
+ Easily adjustable harness.
+ Not bulky when folded.
+ Wheels are just good enough for going over park terrain. Don't expect to go over anything rougher than gravel though.

Cons
- No autolock mechanism when folded.
- Difficult to access the bottom carry basket.
- Suspension is on the front only.
- Tires are foam.
- When folded the seat of the stroller faces out.
- Harness buckle is a little too easy to undo.

After much agonizing and research we settled on the City Mini. We needed a stroller that would fit in our small hatchback trunk and be versatile enough to use for many years. Other brands had excellent build quality but were large while most compact strollers were way too complicated and felt fragile. The city mini was the best compromise between size and solidity.

One common complaint about the city mini is that it doesn't come with accessories. We actually found this to be a plus as we didn't want a bumper bar or rain cover at the time of purchase. And at about $230 this stroller is at the low end of the price spectrum for a stroller of this quality.

Having used the city mini for 7 months now I can confidently say the city mini is an amazing, versatile stroller that I can confidently recommend to anyone.
