Double stroller configuration
Baby jogger city select can be converted into a double stroller by adding another stroller seat. To add a second seat, you need a second seat kit (bought separately). Both seats can face forward and backwards regardless of the direction of the other (both seats do not have to face in the same direction). So when the kids feel like sharing a game, you can make the seat to face each other. When they are in the combative mode, you can change seat positions so they are facing in opposite directions.
There are some configurations of the second seat that get in the way of the storage basket but the good news is, there are other configurations to choose from. The only problem here is in such configurations, the child in the second seat can have access to the storage basket and eat, play or throw away thing you put in the basket.
Baby jogger city select can be converted into a single pram, double pram or a pram/stroller combination with the use of a bassinet (deluxe pram), a bassinet kit or two and a second seat kit depending on the configuration chosen. The bassinets can face either forward or backward.

Prams are great for outdoor naps and diaper changes. The bassinet (deluxe pram) is bought separately.

Storage and assembly
The storage basket of the city select stroller is big. It can hold a big diaper bag and have room for more.

Things to note
- The city select stroller is pretty heavy so it might not be the most convenient stroller to lift into and out of your trunk (especially if you have to run errands that require driving to many different locations).
- Accessories like the bassinet kit, car seat adapters, child tray, parent tray, rain cover, weather shield and more are all sold separately.
- Folding is not that easy, You need to take the seats out to fold it compactly. With some practice, it can be done very fast.
- This stroller is not good for jogging (people get confused because of the brand name baby jogger).
What are people saying?
For many people, this stroller is love at first sight. They love the design, the color, the way it maneuvers and the way it folds. Many people are not so impressed with the price but think it is worth it. Some people feel that the manufacturer should have at least thrown in a parent console and child tray for a stroller that cost $ 400+.
