Please click on a question to see its answers.

Q:Anyone had problems getting through standard doorways? How would this be in the mall, for example?

A:

No problems getting through doorways ever but like most strollers it is hard to navigate through stores at the mall with close clothing racks.

Q:would this fit in the trunk of a 1997 toyota corrola? With nothing else in there?

A:

Yes

Q:Is it possible to fully pull down the canopies so the sun close to sunset doesn’t distract babies?

A:

The canopies can fold down to meet the seat, but the top portion (which would normally be velcroed to the frame) is exposed. I’ve done this before with my two month old to keep the wind from getting into the reclined seat, and then covered the exposed top portion with a blanket. But to answer your question, no. The canopy extends farther than most, but not completely without detaching from the top. Hope that helps!

Q:Does anyone know if when this folded can it be wheeled or do you have to carry it?

A:

It can’t be wheeled when folded and it is pretty heavy. You can also remove the wheels fairly easily which is good for long-term storage or to make it more compact.

Q:Can you install an infant seat adapter to one side of the double?

A:

Yes, there is a separate adapter you can purchase that can go on one side of the stroller. It can also slide so the infant seat is in the middle of the stroller if you don’t have a second child riding at the time.

Q:Can this be used with a newborn?

A:

I used it with my baby when he was about 2-3 months old in the reclined position but I added this cushion: the Summer Infant Snuzzler Infant Support for Car Seats and Strollers…it gave him a little extra support for the first few months and he always seemed comfy 🙂

Q:Would a 4 year old be able to lay down to nap in this stroller? We’re looking to rent this stroller in Disney and I feel he’ll want to nap there.

A:

Depends on your 4 year old.
I have a son about 3 feet tall that fits easily. 4 feet tall is probably the limit.

Q:Is the peek a boo window Velcro or magnet?

A:

It is Velcro

Q:Can this maneuver well in sand/ walks on the beach?

A:

Not really

Q:Are the peek-a-boo windows mesh or plastic?

A:

They are plastic. The only mesh netting is shown when the seats are reclined to allow air flow. However, there is a cover to block that if needed.

Q:Would it fit in the trunk of a compact car such as the Honda Civic?

A:

Yes, I have it in a Honda Accord and I still have a lot of extra room. It’s only a couple inches wider then the front to back double strollers.

Q:Can this be folded with the infant car seat adapter installed? (i need it to fit in the trunk of a small suv with the adapter installed.) thank you!

A:

You can but it will be very bulky and can actually break the unit

Q:Is this easy to jog with? Seems like the BoB design might be better for fitness. Thoughts?

A:

Bob is a much better jogger.

Q:Does anyone push their older toddlers/little kids in this? I am curious as to whether my 41″ tall 4 year-old twins would be comfortable in it. Thanks!

A:

Just tried this in the store with my 3.5 year old today. He’s a bit tall for his age, but he barely fit.

Q:Are the seats sturdy and supportive? With the BOB the seats tilt towards each other, and they’re almost “bucket” like. I’m hoping these are more firm.

A:

In my experience they are fantastic. We tested the BOB and didn’t notice the seats tilting together but that definitely does not happen with this stroller.

It’s a lot of money but completely worth it. I would mention that it is NOT a running/jogging stroller however. The BOB would be better suited for that.

Q:Are the footrests adjustable in any way?

A:

There is only the bottom step. It is not adjustable.

Q:Will this fit in the trunk of bmw x3?

A:

Its big. Never seen an X3 cargo area but it fits in my Lexus RX330.

Q:what weight limit or age can an infant fit without car sewt adaptor?

A:

We didn’t do it by weight. We put our son in when he could sit, so 5-6 months or when you stop using the car seat carrier.

Q:What carseat adapter can i use for this stroller for a graco snug ride 30 carseat?

A:

They make a universal adapter and they also make a graco adapter

Q:The mesh netting behind the seat got ripped in mine. Any idea where I can buy similar fabirc for it?

A:

Did you try asking Baby Jogger on Facebook? They do respond.

A:

Q:What drink holder for parents fits well on the City Mini GT DOUBLE Stroller?
A:

Q:Has anyone taken this stroller to Disneyland? I’m concerned about accessing the basket. Where did you put everything for the day for baby & toddler?

Q:What are the dimensions of this when collapsed?
A:

Q:Has anyone traveled on a plane with this? It is so heavy, wasn’t sure I could gate check it.

Q:Does anyone else skip snapping all of the snaps every time you unfold it? Seems safe enough without having to do that each time.

A:

I didnt know I had to snap the snaps before unfolding. So yes, I skip the snapping part. Can you tell me where it says its unsafe?

Q:can you adjust the position of the foot rest?

A:

The footrest is stationary.

Q:Can 3 month infants ride in this stroller safely or do they need to be older?

A:

I think they should be at least 8 months old to ride in this stroller.

Q:Do the accessories (car seat adapter, and child tray) for the City mini GT single work on the double?

A:

No, unfortunately not:( I just bought the double and realized you need ALL new accessories.

Q:what’s the difference between the GT model and the non Gt model?

A:

Rubber tires are the main difference.

Q:i walk to do all my shopping. is this stroller narrow enuf to fit through most store doors? is it light enuf to push aftyer walking a while?

A:

Pushing is easy with great suspension, but its not good for in store shopping through clothing racks…fine in open outdoor

Q:Can the 5 point harness switch to lap belt only? I don’t really want to 5 point harness my 4 year old in every time! haha

A:

Yes

Q:What is the max height a child can be to not touch the top or have their feet hang off?

A:

I’m not sure the exact max height, but I have an average sized 3.5 year old who fits fine without hitting his head and still has some extra room on top. I feel like this stroller accommodates older children better than many other strollers.

Q:How will this do over an up-hill, long, all gravel driveway? Wondering if I need bigger wheels like the Summit? Thanks!

A:

This is a great stroller, we have many! We took our to Yosemite hiking. I would be causious to about long distances up hill in loose small gravel. If the gravel is packed II think you will be ok. Part of the deal depends upon how much weight you pack on it.

Q:Can you put 2 carseats in at the same time? Can they be graco carseats?

A:

I do not think so. I have twins and most of these large double strollers do not accommodate two car seats and even if they do it would be really heavy and cumbersome. In the early months it was much easier to use a double snap n’ go and then transition to the bigger stroller later. I started using it for walks around five months with an insert for my smaller infant (Snuzzler purchased on Amazon) and I keep the snap n’ go in the car.

Q:Can you use the car seat adapter with the double GT?

Q:Is there a better stroller organizer other than this? http://www.amazon.com/Baby-Jogger-Par…

A:

For our single City Mini GT we bought Britax console and I loved it. For our double City Mini GT I couldn’t find anything comparable to our single console. We ended up getting a BOB double console over City’s. They seemed a little more sturdy for our purposes. I will say that I definitely prefer the console on our single stroller. Unfortunately there are very limited options for doubles (at least that I found).
