Baby Jogger City Mini Double Car Seat Adapter

Bottom line: Don’t get me wrong, I’m a huge City Mini fan; it was the first real stroller I ever owned and I used it daily for nearly two years. While I do prefer the fit and finish of Baby Jogger strollers, the added niceties of the B-Agile give it a slight edge over our old pal the City Mini. However, if you’d like to use it with an infant seat that’s not a Britax B-Safe, you’ll be very happy with the City Mini as well.

The City Mini GT Double captures the essence of the City Mini but gives you the ability to pave your own way. It features the City Mini quick fold and will accept 1 infant car seat. With the addition of all-terrain wheels, an adjustable handlebar and hand-operated parking brake, you decide how far you want to go off the beaten path. The City Mini GT Double is not intended for jogging.

The City Mini is 29.75” wide and the B-Agile is 30.5”, both of which will get you through a standard door frame, but not with a ton of room to spare. In the weight department, the B-Agile weighs 28 lbs, while the City Mini weighs in at 26.6 lbs, slightly lighter. They each hold an impressive 100 lbs of total baby meat (50 lbs in each seat). If these seats aren’t tall enough for you, check out the City Mini GT Double, whose seats are even taller.

Both of the strollers fold the same way, thanks to Baby Jogger’s patented Quick-Fold technology. The fold for he 2016 City Mini was improved, along with the new autolock mechanism.

The “FastAction” part means it’s very easy to fold simply by pulling up the seat handles (but hey, Graco owns Baby Jogger now, so I guess they can use that technology all they want, lol). The stroller locks into place so you can easily carry it (if you’re strong enough, lol).

To recap, if you don’t have a Britax car seat, you’ll have to buy the City Mini. There are adapters for the City Go infant seat, the Graco SnugRide ClickConnect, Maxi Cosi and Cybex seats (no Chicco, booh!). Remember also that you can use either of these strollers from birth without a car seat because the seats lie nearly flat (below).

Both strollers accept one car seat (only), so they’re great for a toddler and an infant, or older twins, but won’t work for newborn twins in car seats. You can, however, buy two compact prams for the City Mini, although I recommend you just stick with a simple twin car seat stroller frame for the first few months of infancy.

Now let’s talk storage baskets: if you own a regular City Mini, you know the storage basket isn’t huge and the same holds true for the double (below). Rather, the storage basket is pretty big, but not very accessible.

The fold: with one hand on each of the fold handles, simply pull up and – BAM! – the stroller folds in half (above). Turn the front wheels to the side for a tighter fold. The B-Agile has a convenient standing fold; the City Mini does not. The size of the folded stroller is somewhere in the middle for a double, and will fit into any large trunk and even medium-sized trunks like that of a Ford Focus. Small trunks, not so much.

Both strollers have adjustable height harnesses. To adjust the City Mini’s harnesses, simply twist the stopper, feed it out, and feed it back in at the desired height. For the B-Agile, simply unzip the back of the seat and pull the harness height up or down with a clever no-rethread harness.

Our most popular and award-winning family, the City Mini® series has the right stroller for any lifestyle. Whether you stick to city streets or go off the beaten path, we’ve got you covered.

The Graco FastAction Fold Duo is a decent economy pick for a double side-by-side, especially if you already have a SnugRide Click Connect car seat(s). It easily holds one (or two!) Graco Click Connects of any size, which makes it great for twins.

The City Mini and B-Agile doubles are some of the best side-by-side strollers for the money. No, they aren’t all-terrain strollers, but they’re better than your typical side-by-side stroller. In fact, you’ll be able to roll over grass and bumps MUCH more easily with these than you would with an umbrella stroller or a basic side-by-side. Now that both have released their 2016 models, it’s easier to compare apples to apples…

The handlebars on these strollers are both fairly tall. The handlebar on the B-Agile adjusts by rotating up and down, whereas the handlebar on the City Mini does not adjust. However, it was elongated in the 2016 model to make it better for “the tall”. However, we still prefer one that adjusts, so Point: Britax.

Again, the wheels on these strollers are quite good for “regular” strollers. The City Mini’s four wheels are all 8”, and the B-Agile has 6” wheels in the front and 9.5” wheels in the back. Hard to say which is better.

* Note, all strollers in this category have roughly the same folded footprint. At 26.6 lbs, the City Mini is roughly 1 1/2 lbs lighter than the B-Agile, but both are fairly easy to schlep around.

Unlike most strollers, it comes with two car seat adapters built in, so you don’t have to buy them separately. These tuck away when they’re not in use.

The seats on these strollers are very similar – both seats recline independently and nearly flat, so they can be used from birth (without a car seat). Both strollers have flaps you can roll up for ventilation, which expose a mesh backing.

The canopies are adequate, but not my favorite. There are two separate moderately sized storage baskets. They hold the equivalent of two adult coats, multiple blankets per baby, and a wet bag full of diapers. Or lots of merchandise you picked out while strolling around in Target. They are still accessible while the stroller is occupied – if both sides are reclined all the way down, it gets a little trickier but still accessible.
