City Mini Gt Double Car Seat Adapter

You can use the BOB Revolution Duallie with one infant car seat only with the purchase of an adapter. The car seat adapter for the Duallie is an infant seat adapter on one side and a snack tray bar on the other side. Yes, this is the only way it comes. If your other child doesn’t want the snack tray, too bad. They currently have adapters for MOST car seats.

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.

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.

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.

Single and double adapters for Maxi-Cosi, Cybex and Nuna are in stock and shipping now (despite the pre-order button). Adapters for Graco/Chicco Keyfit will be released next, no ETD yet – stay tuned! And later in 2017, a Britax adapter will be available.

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.

Bottom line: The Mountain Buggy Duet is a versatile, narrow, side-by-side, that’s great for any setting — especially tight, urban spaces. The large canopies, lie-flat recline and larger storage basket make it a pleasure to use. The Duet is a top pick for twins because you can buy two car seat adapters for a variety of car seat brands, as opposed to something like the Bumbleride, which only accepts European brands. Hence, the Duet is our favorite all-terrain stroller in this price range for twins and other children very close in age. *Not great for older, taller kids.

In the forward-facing mode, the seat reclines a little further than halfway back. In the parent-facing (rear) mode, the seat reclines all the way flat, thus it’s appropriate for a newborn without a car seat.

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.

Both seats recline independently and nearly flat, so you can use it from birth, even without a car seat or bassinet. The seats have adjustable leg rests, which are especially great for infants, and the total weight capacity is 90 lbs, or 45 lbs in each seat.

The new 2016 models have a much larger storage compartment than previous models. It will hold quite a bit, although it is cut in half by the “seat retention” safety strap. This strap holds the seats down if (God forbid) you have an accident with your stroller while jogging. Additionally, there are two seat back pockets, as well as internal seat pockets (below) for small toys and such.

I do understand that there are people out there who desire these strollers, mainly for their impressive ride and sharp look, or perhaps people who don’t have a car and therefore, have “car money” to spend on a stroller. Having lived in a big city with a baby, I get that.

The GT version has many bells and whistles not found on the regular City Mini: the all-terrain tires, an adjustable handlebar, extra padded seats that are easy to remove and throw into the wash, and a convenient hand brake on the side. The seats themselves are also taller, which will give you longer use as your kids grow older.

The wheels are 8.5” forever air, foam filled tires, which never need to be pumped yet still feel and ride like air-filled tires. This is a major upgrade from the regular City Mini. Believe me, not having to pump your stroller tires every month is HUGE. It’s always such an annoyance.
city mini gt double car seat adapter 19

And while we all concur that air-filled tires ride beautifully, as a practical matter, I hate that they need to be pumped up every month – and worse, they run the risk of running flat, which many reviewers complain of. If you get a bad rim, it’s a major hassle. The LAST THING you want to deal with after dropping this much money on a stroller are flat tires. For this reason, I prefer the forever air tires on something like the City Mini GT because I’d rather not deal with tire maintenance. But I’m lazy like that.

You can technically fold it with the seats on, but it’s pretty unwieldy. In the folding department, strollers like the Britax B-Ready and the City Mini GT make the Donkey look a bit silly in comparison.

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.

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.

* 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.
