Baby Jogger City Classic Single

Strollin': Baby Jogger City Classic Single

Mommies on the run can appreciate the ease and comfort of the Baby Jogger City Classic Single ($400). The reclining padded pushchair allows plush seating for precious cargo and the Quick-Fold Technology is one of the best collapses I've seen on any stroller. One simple pull on the back of the stroller and the chair is down in a flash. At 21 pounds, it's no easy task to lift the bugger, but it is on the lighter end of athletic strollers.

To see my other thoughts on the Baby Jogger City Classic Single,

.

Like the BOB, the Baby Jogger City Classic has an adapter for car seats, making it useful from an early age. A major bonus is that it can handle a child up to 75 pounds! Also similar to the BOB Revolution, it has a front swivel wheel that can lock in place should that be a requirement. The handle bar is adjustable, which is nice for parents who like to switch it up occasionally. As for amenities, there is a basket under the seat and zipped mesh pockets for stowing items and an accompanying three panel sun canopy that provides ample shielding from the sun or nasty weather for comfortable outings.

There's one major caveat that comes with this buggy though — it is NOT equipped for jogging. This left me scratching my head. It looks like a jogger and the name implies it's a jogger, but technically, it's not. Having said that many people use different "non-jogging" strollers to troll along for exercise. If you're an Iron-Man type trainer, you may want to invest in a jogger that actually lives up to its name.

We will be finishing off our mini season of original stroller reviews with a special giveaway in October. Stay tuned for more details.

Honestly, if you're an Ironman-type trainer, you can't be bringing the kids along anyway. It would be totally unfair to them and boring as hell. I can't imagine my husband bringing my kids on any of his Ironman-training runs unless he's seriously tapered off. And in that case, it's a regular run. But I agree with the previous poster. I don't get it, why is it called a jogger?

Baby Jogger City Classic is not a jogging stroller? And it's super heavy? And really expensive? Why not just go with BOB or some other jogging stroller? Unless I'm totally missing something here...
