Test Stroll: Baby Jogger City Micro

Publish date:

I'm always on the hunt for the perfect urban stroller. The one that takes up little space, is lightweight (for stairs), handles well, takes curbs and bumpy sidewalks like a champ and gives me room to stow my gear.

The new Baby Jogger City Micro ($159.99) stroller from the folks at Baby Jogger fits some of these needs. It is nimble and I love the quick, flat fold. But hey, Baby Jogger, what is up with the wimpy wheels! I expect you guys (the folks who mastered smooth suspension) to do better than these small (6" and 8") EVA wheels. They were simply no match for the Brooklyn sidewalks.

What I liked: Plenty of storage, good looking lines, easy to fold and stash in the car or a closet. The canopy offers plenty of shady. Nice handles and the seat is quite roomy and will hold up to 50 lbs of kid.

What I didn't like: Wheels, brakes seemed flimsy. Scratchy harness lacks padding and is tough to adjust, stingy recline.
