Love it! Almost perfect!
It is such a perfect pram for inner city living! Perfect for walks, catching public transport, jogging/running - even though they say it's not a "running" pram- it's excellent & smooth when you lock the front wheel!
It is SO easy to fold, get in/out of the car, my friends can never believe how quickly I get our stuff out of the car & we're ready to go!
It is sturdy, adjustable handle AND the handle isn't that gross foam one the Bob stroller has...it would get so dirty & sweaty! This is a nice grippy rubber handle.
Only reason I gave it a 4 is...

Great value and reliable pram
When looking at buying a pram for our first child, I had no idea how expensive these things were. I was shocked at how expensive some the brands were. So when I came across this I was delighted. Especially since it had pretty good reviews, and ticked many of my requirements.
Price: Amazon had a deal that sold this for $375, which is much cheaper than some of the second prams.
Baby size range: from new born onwards. Although I was able to get a secondhand babyjogger deluxe bassinet and am able to comfortably transport my precious with minimal ...interruptions (especially from all those pesky straps). Weight: not the lightest pram. The lighter prams that weren’t exorbitantly priced looked like an OH&S hazard. So I don’t mind the weight considering the sense (cos I havne’t really pushed it the limits) of durability, which this pram offers. Flexibility: The pram folds and unfolds fairly easily. Although locking mechanism can be improved as it can be easily overlooked and may open up when you don’t want it to. In fact I chipped the floorboard when unfolding cos it snapped open. With the bassinet we don’t have much space in the boot of our hatchback. Fortunately the wheels easily snap off and on making it easy to pack it.
So easy to use and comparable in price, just lacking some finer points
For anyone who is usually in a rush, this is a great pram.
Because setting up the pram to use literally involves undoing one side clip (and putting it away for storage involves pulling one handle) it is incredibly time efficient and low maintenance. It is also quite comparable in price to a lot of the other prams of similar quality. It is well made and structurally sound, and one important feature is the large diameter of the wheels, which means a less bumpy ride for your baby. It is versatile as you can attach adapters which allows to you con...

Comfortable and Practical
I've owned this strolled for over 2 years (from infant to toddler) and it's still in great condition. We use it nearly everyday. It's easy to clean and the fabric is surprisingly still in great condition.

First baby with this pram and it does not disappoint!
With our first baby we decided to have a few features in mind - safety, ease of use, and portability. And it does not disappoint! It is light-weight and easy to fold up with a single action, making it easy to store/transfer with one hand.
It is easy to steer, and we have travelled with this pram for more than 100kms (!) of walking around the world with our baby in it in different terrains - and it hasn't got a loose screw anywhere!
The only gripe is the linen/cover needs a bit of effort to be removed for cleaning in the washing machine, which is not described in the manual but easily found online.
We will be saving this for our second baby and going to relive the joy of travelling again!

Practical to use but expensive to maintain if key strap breaks
We bought this not inexpensive pram based on reviews and research.
After purchasing it took nearly 2 months to actually receive the product after buying through a local bricks and mortar retailer which had to be shipped from Baby Jogger.
Pros and cons of its practical features/benefits.
-It's *very* easy to fold/unfold
-It's easy to get in/out of car and is very compact
-It has a reasonable level of adjustment
-Safety is ok if you remember the lockstraps...

Some great features and some not so great
Overall I think the pram is a great buy, and very good value for money. It is easy to manoeuvre and performs well on all surfaces and terrains. The suspension is very good I think. The two best features of this pram are it's weight (I got this pram because I have a bad back and this was one of the lightest on the market at the time of purchase) and how absolutely, amazingly easy it is to fold and unfold.
The two things I don't love about this pram are that the seat back doesn't seem to go up enough for my daughter - she still looks like she ...

Easy to use
Nice and lightweight pram, easy to push and steer. Like a lot of others have mentioned it’s a great feature to be able to close this with one hand. I didn’t like the idea of my tiny newborn just laying down on the seat from birth with no support, so I got a capsule for the first 6 months.
Looked at all the great reviews for this pram before buying but now I’m out to buy a different pram because:
- seat doesn’t have the option of being switched to rear facing. Didn’t realise I’d need this until we converted from bassinet to seat and my little one couldn’t see me and HATED being in his pram
- crazy small storage under pram, doesn’t fit my nappy bag
- can’t hang anything off the handlebars (so have to carry the nappy bag)
Definitely regretful purchase
Too hyped up. Disappointing!
It is easy to manoeuvre yes! But it starts to wobble when u use it. Storage is disappointing. It takes me minutes to get my stuff in the storage basket.. since its three wheeler its not stable at all and you can not hang your nappy bag in the stroller handle.. it cannot bear the weight.. not a practical stroller. Only good thing about it is the folding. Rest is worse.. worst decision iv ever made.. don't know why this is the number one..
Great pram for people that don't like lifting heavy things
I'm terrible at holding up most prams but I find this pram very manageable.
It's very sturdy as it has lasted 2+ years, including a lot of throwing the pram in the car boot, jumping from my first daughter, and general wear and tear over all sorts of bumpy terrain.
We bought the rain cover but it has gotten cloudy over time which is annoying, the belly bar is excellent for babies to kick and stick their feet on. We bought the veebee seat and board add-on on instead of the Baby jogger board for our toddler.
My husband doesn't think it's worth ...
This pram is really easy to use and quick to open and close when getting it out of the car. The wheels come on and off easily to fit into any size boot, even a small car like mine. It lays almost completely flat so baby is always comfortable even when sleeping. It's very good over all surfaces and terrains as the wheels are super functional. The only down side is the size of the basket underneath and the fact it is difficult to access. Great pram overall, also compatible with capsules with the right connectors.
I love this pram. Super practical and easy to manoeuvre. The quick fold handle is great when I need to get back in the car quickly if it’s raining or Bub is crying. Although the basket underneath has a metal bar which makes it difficult for somethings to go into the basket. It is a little heavy to carry but I am only ever lifting it in and out if the car.
I used this pram from newborn. I didn’t bother getting the bassinet attachment and didn’t need it. I feel he is much safer in the seat laid right back because he is strapped in and can’t roll or slide if we are moving up or down hill. I can see him easily through the windows in the hood.
The accessories are very expensive. I purchased the rain cover to go with it.
Works well for paced walking
Love going for a super power walk and wanted to take baby alon but was worried all the bumps would reck the pram we got but this one is very well made and can handle about all kinds of off footpath grounds and is very stable only problem is handle could be longer for my partner
This is a pricy pram but you do get your moneys worth, you can buy the baby capsule and another attachment piece to connect to the pram for your newborn, then when they get bigger the pram is big enough to sit them for years, so far we are using for a 4 year old. Its easy to push, you can make the seat lie down and its easy to assemble out of the car. Lots of pieces available to buy also like cup holder, and a bar.
Our favourite pram
We purchased this pram for our second baby after having issues with manoeuvring our previous one. The BJ City Mini GT is SO light, easy to steer, narrow enough to fit anywhere, smooth and can even fold with one hand. We used a capsule with an adapter on it at first, and soon moved to the pram seat itself. We've now had it for 3 years and it's in as new condition after a lot of use. We are holding on to this for many years to come!
Questions & Answers
I can't get out of the house right now, but am hoping someone can send me a photo of the harness system as you can't see this in any of the images on-line, and as well as collapsing it one-handed I need to be able to do the harness up with one hand.
Hi I’ve been offered a second hand City Mini. Unfortunately the colour is green and looks a bit old, is there an option to purchase a new seat cover (?? Not sure what it’s called) to make the stroller look a bit newer and a different colour?

Hi Jess, You can purchase seat fabric for the City Mini at a cost of $120 depending on what colour you are after we will need to check stock . Feel free to call us on 03 88726772 to discuss further
Hi there, I have just purchased a second hand GT. It's in great condition and I've had no issues, other than the harness. The top clip slides into the side clip but just slips straight out again unless the whole harness is clipped in. Is this normal?? It means that every time I take my child out, the whole harness comes apart and is a pain to put back together every time.

Hi there, the 5 point harness is designed to come away quick and easy. quick release harnesses are now a Safety standard as they reduce the risk of strangulation and make it quick and easy to remove your child should you need to during an emergency.
