QUESTION: IS THE SEAT DETACHABLE SO WE CAN USE IT WHEN CARRYING OUR NEWBORN HOME FROM HOSPITAL? -- WE LIVE IN NEW YORK SO WILL BE RIDING IN A TAXI.
No. Detaching the seat will not work for this purpose. You will need to purchase the bassinet attachment.
You will need to have a car seat that is compatible with the stroller.. Plus buy the adapters.. the seat is good for older children. Over the stroller is amazing
Yes seat cones off. You will need an adapter for car seat.
The seat does detach and you can put a newborn carrier/carseat on the frame, however you will need to buy the attachment to do that. There's one specifically for Britax and then I think all others are covered under a different attachment. I have a Britax infant carrier and it works wonderfully with it. I can't speak for the other attachment.
You use a car seat when they are infants and you'll have to buy the converter to attach the car seat to the stroller. You don't use the seat until they are older.
Yes! the seat comes off very easily, so you can either click in a car seat, using the car seat adapter.
Yes, but you will need to get a car seat base so that it will be legal. But you can use it as a car seat for sure.
Hi the seat is detachable but it is not meant to be carried on its own with baby in it and the seat is not suitable for newborn, more for 6 months onwards. However, the frame can fit a car seat to become a travel system meant for newborn which you can detach while riding in a taxi. Car seat can be purchased separately and there are many brands out there that fit the frame. I'm using Maxi Cosi car seat.

QUESTION: DOES IT COME WITHA WEATHER SHIELD?
It comes with a canopy to cover most of child except maybe feet but not a weather protector that covers the whole stroller.
No it doesn't unfortunately. It only comes with a canopy to protect head and some upper part of the body.
No, but the canopy extends lower than most strollers on the market right now
No it does not come with a weather shield. It does come with the shroud listed in the picture above.
No
No, it does not.
Our didn't come with one, I think you have to buy that separately.
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: WHAT'S THE INFANT CAR SEAT CAN WORK WITH BABY JOGGER CITY CELECT STROLLER?OR IT WORKS WITH ANY OF THEM SUBJECT TO THE EXISTENCE OF CAR SEAT ADAPTOR?
It works with certain specific car seats you can get the list from the website. I got the maxi cosi which is the lightest car seat out there at only 8 pounds. Baby falls asleep so quickly in it even out of the car. I got an adapter but never used it to connect to stroller. The actual stroller is great for even newborns it lies almost flat, and newborns like to be slightly elevated when lying down, their head elevated and also feet up. Baby loved the stroller seat as a newborn. Don't get the newborn pram its a waste you won't use it, also not great quality, requires a lot of assembly , and uses the regular seat frame so you are paying for half a seat - you don't get an extra full seat. If you have another child you would need to buy a third seat when using the pram. I recommend the city select but you should also look into the uppa baby vista that has double seat option , also britax be ready has double option . For adapter you definitely need adapter for adding car seat and needs to be that specific one
I'm not sure, I purchased it after my child was out of infact carseat. but I've seen someone use a Britax infant car seat with adapter.
It's really awkward with any of them. Get a different stroller.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: DOES IT HAVE A FRONT AND REAR FACING SEAT?
It has one seat, we had to purchase the second seat. And yes you can set up the seats for front or rear facing, that's why we choose the stroller there's many ways to of setting un the seats
yes, you can put it in any orientation you want..
Both seats can face both directions. That's one of the coolest things about this stroller!
You turn the chair around so it can do both. We have the second seat and options are endless with combos. Both seats can face in both directions.
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: CAN THE REGULAR STROLLER WORK FOR A NEWBORN WITHOUT THE BASSINETT OR CAR SEAT SYSTEM ADDED?
It depends on the size of your baby. Our ten lb newborn was fine since it reclines to an almost flat position but I think a smaller baby would do better with the car seat adapter.
No, the straps aren't small enough and the seat is too big to properly secure a newborn. I honestly don't think there are many strollers that can go from birth to 45lbs without some sort of adapter.
What my sister and her husband did for their babies was just rest the car seat on top of the actual stroller seat. She said as long as you weren't on rough terrain it worked great. I still got the car seat adaptor for ours though:) Haven't tried it yet (baby due in April!), but when we went to install it, a piece snapped off. It seems a little finicky. Amazon was great and sent us a new adaptor, so well see how that one goes when we get around to installing it.
I wouldn't recommend it, since the seat would be pretty big for a newborn
You need to use a car seat carrier with adapter for the baby to be secure and comfortable. I have the Britax car seat and adapter and it was super easy to install and works great!
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: IS IT REALLY HEAVY LIKE 30 LBS?
Heavier. I think 45. Not practical for going in and out of car, you would need umbrella stroller for that. I have Maclaren triumph and it's super light. You usually need more than one stroller bec the travel ones are not comfortable for the baby or for you to push.
I don't know if is 30 lbs but yes is heavy specially if you folded in one peace... I end up always separating the chair and close the frame so is not that heavy to carry and put on the cars trunk
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: CAN YOU PUT AN INFANT IN THIS AS IT COMES?
No you cannot.
You will have to buy the appropriate adapter
No. You'll have to get the car seat adapter for your car seat.
No. Our little one is 2 weeks old we have the car seat adapter thing that we ordered from Amazon and we just click her car seat into the stroller. The actual seat that came with it is a little awkward for her at this time. Maybe when she is a little bigger it will work better.
Not really, you could in a pinch because it lays down parallel to the ground but it won't be very comfortable. You really need the bassinet attachment or there is a car seat adapter that will allow you to simply transfer seat from car to stroller. It is a little extra money but well worth it in the long run because this stroller is so versatile and is able to grow with child and family. All the various attachments means you will never need another stroller or sit and stand and the durability means it will last through several children and even fetch a decent price if you want to sell it when you don't need it anymore.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER WORK WELL FOR WALKING PAVED TRAILS OR STREETS? I WANT TO GO FOR WALKS BUT WE DON'T HAVE SIDEWALKS.
yes, we have a gravel road and the wheels work well on it.
Yes. It has large enough tires where the terrain is not an issue.
Yes. We have no problems walking with this stroller on any of those surfaces. We sometimes have to off road on the paved trails we take her. Even so, it still works great. The only problems we've ever had have been in sand.
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: I WANT THIS STROLLER FOR EVERYDAY USE, BUT I ALSO WANT TO USE IT FOR THE ROUGH TERRAIN AT SOCCER FIELDS. IS THIS A GOOD STROLLER FOR BOTH?
No, you need one with proper air tires. These tires don't do well on bumpy surfaces.
The stroller could handle the fields if they are not too bad. We live up north where there's tons of snow/ice making it rough terrain even going around the block! It does make for a rather bumpy ride though for the kiddo as the City Select does not have shocks for the seats like most jogging strollers do.
Yes, the stroller works great on short grass like a soccer field as long as the terrain is mostly flat and not to bumpy.
Yes, the wheels navigate uneven terrain very well.
I feel like it is great for every day use and still be ok on a soccer field but will be a rough ride.
Despite the brand name "Baby Jogger", this isn't a jogging stroller, so it can be a bit bumpy on rough terrain. I've "off-roaded" a few times, but my younger baby has definitely given me some indignant looks about being bounced around!
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: HOW MUCH DOES IT WEIGH? THE "PRODUCT INFORMATION" SAYS 1 POUND, BUT I FIND THAT HARD TO BELIEVE!
The basic configuration (one seat) weighs 28lbs.
28 lbs. It's the heaviest of the everyday Baby Jogger strollers.
Baby jogger website says 28 pounds
I am not exactly sure how much it weighs but I can tell you it is a fantastic stroller, worth every penny, so easy to maneuver and fold. It's like a the Bentley of strollers!
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: IT SAYS THE WEIGHT IS 28 POUNDS. IS THAT NOT TOO HEAVY? IS IT EASY TO USE ON MY OWN OR WOULD I NEED MY HUSBAND'S HELP TO SET IT UP?
It's easy to set up. It is designed to be set up by a woman holding a baby. You press the button/bar and it pops open.
My wife uses it all the time and she is 5'2 and 130lbs. You just need to undo the latch at the bottom and pull up. The only trouble I would foresee might be getting it out of the car if you have a sedan verses a SUV.
It's a little heavy at first but you get use to it. Its a great stroller the storage is amazing. I would still recommend it even thought it maybe a little heavy.
It's not too bad considering it's a double stroller. I can get it in and out of my trunk by myself, but it's definitely not light. The second seat, infant seat adapter and kick board are all easy to take on and off. I tested just about every double stroller in the store and decides on this one because of the seat options (I have a 3 yr old and a 6 month old) and the front/back seats versus side by side. Hopefully, that helps some.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: IF I WANT TO USE THIS SEAT FOR MY OLDER CHILD, WILL IT MOVE DOWN TO FIT A CARSEAT ON TOP (I'M PURCHASING THE CAR SEAT ADAPTERS)?
Yes
Yes
If you have this stroller but want to add the baby carrier as well as the seat you have to have the car seat adapters and an extension adapter for the chair to fit both! But they are super easy to pop in and out. You can switch between single and double stroller easily. Hope this helps.
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: EVEN WITHOUT THE ALL TERRAIN WHEELS, CAN THIS STROLLER HANDLE LOTS OF JOGGING?
Since it has 4 wheels and they aren't all that large, I don't think this is really a good jogging stroller. Baby Jogger is simply the brand name, and they make lots of non-jogging strollers (including this one).
Hi Alison, the City Select is not designed as a jogging stroller. Baby Jogger recommends AGAINST running with this model. The name "Baby Jogger" is 30 years old, when the company only made joggers, and other non-jogging models are also available today. Understandable confusion! The City Select would be fine for powerwalking and fast walking as exercise. Hope that helps!
I have this stroller and while it's definitely not as light and easy to push as a real jogger like the BOB, I've found that on a decently smooth city jogging trail (like the one close to my house), I can do a slow jog and push it just fine. And slow jogging is all I'm doing these days, post baby. :)
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER STAND ON IT'S OWN WHEN FOLDED?
No, it doesn't. It actually has very poor stability even when it's against something else to keep it standing. It's the only thing I don't like about it, but for me is not a big deal.
Not really
When it's folded it will need to lie down it does not stand on its own.
No it doesn't.
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: IS THIS STROLLER EASY TO MANEUVER WITH ONE HAND?
Yes, it has 8" front and 12" rear tires with sealed ball bearings making it very easy to maneuver with one hand.
Yes, relatively. I am a 5'3 woman who takes my 2 girls out with this stroller. Usually I will have my 1 yr old in my arms and the 3.5 yr old in the stroller seat. I push one-handed through shops and can (somewhat) easily open a door and push the stroller through while keeping it open. It is not as easy as the city mini (3-wheeler) or when both seats are attached, but still pretty maneuverable, in my experience.
Overall, yes. Obviously, once you put a lot of weight in the stroller (a heavy kid), it gets a bit trickier, but not much. This stroller glides well and turns well, even with one hand.
With one kid in it, relatively. With two? Not really.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: ARE THE BLACK AND ONYX MODELS FROM DIFFERENT MODEL YEARS? WHEN COMPARING THE TWO I SEE SLIGHT DIFFERENCES.
The black is on a black frame and the Onyx is on a silver frame.
The difference between the black and the onyx is that one comes with a black frame and one comes with a silver frame.
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: DOES THE BABY JOGGER CITY WORK WELL FOR TRIPS TO THE MALL AND DAILY WALKS?
This stroller couldn't be more perfect! Very easy to handle and store.
Yes, it's quick and easy to fold/unfold. I use it all the time for grocery, mall trips and general running errands. It has a large basket that fits bags/groceries. It also does awesome on walks through the neighborhood and has good turning base and large wheels. Very happy with this stroller!
That is exactly what I use it for. It's the only stroller I have! It's a little heavy compared to a cheap umbrella stroller, so the loading in and out of the car trunk is a little heavy (esp. if you're pregnant like me), but definitely doable. I use mine for errands as well as exercise walks (and very slow jogs) around my neighborhood. I take mine with me everywhere.
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: IS THIS 2014 OR 2015 MODEL?
I was told 2015 when I bought it in teal. the difference between the two is mostly the hand brake according to baby jogger.
It's the 2014 model.
If it's through Posh Baby you are looking at then they are 2015. We only sell current models.
2014
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER WORK WELL AS A SINGLE? IS IT TOO HEAVY TO BE WORTH IT AS A SINGLE?
It is heavy and bulky, but it pushes like a dream. I use it now with a singleton- I have the Britax car seat adapter and it's great! We've also used the bassinet and liked that as well.
I think it's worth it, especially if you might have more kids. We used a Graco jogger before this for one kid and it was heavier and bulkier than this. I use this as a single periodically and I like it. But only spend the money if you think you might go to a double at some point.
I use this stroller primarily as a single. I don't find it too heavy. I'm petite at only 4'11 and under 100 lbs and I can pick it up easily and put it in the back of my suv. I like the versatility of the stroller, and think it is worth every penny.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: WHAT YEAR IS THIS STROLLER? THERE ARE TWO DIFFERENT ANSWERS AND JUST WONDERING THANK YOU!
I believe it is 2014 model. I bought it last year and was told by the person who I bought it for it was the color from the year before, but that was the only change. K.k
2013
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: WOULD THIS STROLLER WORK WELL IN EUROPE AND USED IN COBBLESTONE?
It is not the smoothest on bumps- we used on a small portion of cobblestone in charleston, sc and it felt very rumbly/shaky and loud
I have not used this stroller in Europe, but I have used it on all different types of terrain. It doesn't have the best shock absorbers but it is very compact and maneuverable. Personally I would suggest a BOB Revolution stroller for a smoother ride, but this one will still provide an excellent ride. I'm sure it will be more than satisfactory on cobblestone. However, it doesn't do curbs all that well. You may have to step on the rear axle when going up on a curb. That said, this is my favorite everyday stroller for all different situations.
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: DOES THIS COME WITH A CHILD TRAY?
No, you have to purchase those separate.
No it is seperate.
No, you need to buy it separately. We have one, but our baby isn't old enough to need it yet.
No. All ancillary parts are sold separately.
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: DOES THIS STROLLER COME WITH A SEAT ALREADY OR IS THIS JUST THE FRAME AND YOU HAVE TO BUY A SEAT? WE ONLY NEED ONE RIGHT NOW.
Seat comes with it.
The stroller comes with one seat. We ordered a second, but haven't used it. You can order the bassinet as well, which uses the seat as a base.
It looks exactly like the picture. It accommodates one child.
It comes with one seat
Hello Amelia! Thank you for your question. The Baby Jogger City Select stroller includes the stroller seat as pictured. A Baby Jogger Second Seat kit (sold separately) is also available to purchase that will turn it into a double stroller. Happy Holidays! Customer Care Traveling Tikes
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: HOW MUCH DOES THE STROLLER ITSELF WEIGH?
Its Definitely not the lightest of all Strollers. My wife is fairly petite and she can handle it fine. Its made out of Aircraft Aluminum so its super sturdy. We love it.
not sure
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: DOES ANYONE ELSE HAVE A VERY HARD TIME CLOSING THE STROLLER? I'M WONDERING IF THERE IS A DEFECT WITH MINE.
Once u take the seat off and lift the part that says fold it should close easily. With the seat on it wont close completely.
At first it was very easy to close, now the pull is very hard and often gets stuck and is hard to pull up.
It definitely takes some muscle to close mine
It definitely takes some muscle to close mine
Lift up/ pull up to close. It takes some effort but should not have that stuck feeling when you do. Otherwise it's definitely defective. Also might just need break in.
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: WHAT CAR SEATS WORK WITH THIS STROLLER?
We have the britax car seat with ours! You can buy different brackets to fit different car seats. Sorry I don't know exact brands.
I have an adaptor for the Graco click connect.
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: FTM HERE: IS THIS JUST THE FRAME, NO SEAT, OR IS THIS THE FRAME AND SEAT?
It's a stroller with everything included: the frame, the seat, and the canopy.
Hi it's frame and seat.the seat is for baby over 6mths so you need to purchase a bassinet for new born baby up to 6mths.cheers Lynn
It is the frame, and one seat. You need to buy the "second seat kit" to make it a double, if need be.
Frame and the seat. We ordered the second seat since we have twins but it grows with you.
Frames and seat as shown
Frame and 1 seat

QUESTION: IN ORDER TO USE WITH AN INFANT SEAT AND A TODDLER, DO I NEED THE SECOND SEAT AND THE CAR SEAT ADAPTER, OR WILL THIS WORK WITH JUST THE CARSEAT ADAPTER
You need the second seat. Otherwise there's nowhere to attach the toddler seat in the front.
Just car seat adapter.
You do not need to order the second seat as long as you use the infant seat. You would need the second seat adapter adapter though. This allows you to use the front position with the seat or infant adapter.
It will work with car seat adaptor. Enjoy the stroller.
You will need the second seat adapter and the adapter for the carseat.
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: IS ONYX BLACK OR GRAY
The onyx stroller is black fabric with a silver frame. It differs from the black stroller because the black stroller has black fabric and a black frame.
Black
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: IS THIS THE 2015 MODEL? I DID NOT SEE ANY RECENT QUESTIONS IN REGARDS TO THIS STROLLER.
I believe it is the 2014 model.
Yes it's the 2015 model. I have it &' I love it!!!
Yes, I think it is. The 2016 model is be sold for $500+ on Amazon.
I think the one I bought was the 2013. I'm not sure, however unless you're concerned about color it doesn't matter. The only difference is canvas color choices...the 15 has a brighter red and a green I think. Otherwise the attachments are interchangeable. You can buy a chassis from an earlier model and use a seat from a later and vice versa.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: IS THIS THE 2015 VERSION?
Not specifically. I bought mine in early 2014.
Yes,2015 version.
All the strollers we sell are of current model from the manufacture.
#Baby_Jogger_Review

QUESTION: DOES IT COME WITH INFANT CAR SEAT?
You put the baby in the regular seat, or you buy a car seat adapter rack for your make/model that makes it a travel system. My youngest is 5.5months and we've been using the car seat adapter until now.
No. You have to buy one separately and the coordinating adapter as well.
We bought a Brixta baby car seat and the adapter piece from city select and bam it all worked perfectly. It comes this the seat shown above and that will recline but, I still wanted to be able to take the baby seat in case she was asleep or for transferring between vehicles.
#Baby_Jogger_City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: IS THIS THE SAME AS BABY JOGGER® CITY SELECT® BJ23410 SINGLE STROLLER IN BLACK?
Yes, Good choice
Yes. Thank you, Babyhaven.
#Baby_Jogger

QUESTION: CAN YOU USE THIS WITH A NEWBORN WITHOUT A CARSEAT?
No, the seat included is not intended for a newborn. You will need the car seat adapters plus car seat or bassinet attachment sold by Baby Jogger.
Yes! Actually that's how we are using it right now. Three week old in reclined position with a car seat cushion adapter for newborn so he doesn't move all over the place and his head and neck is well protected and it works just fine!
I don't think so.
I wouldnt. I guess if you had to you could fully recline it and place the baby in. But it'seems not made for a newborn.
#City_Select_Stroller

QUESTION: SO THE ONYX DOESNT COME IN THE 2014 MODEL?
Yes it does
Hello, Yes the Onyx does come in a 2014 model. Thank you, Babyhaven
