    I bought a BJCM GT after testing the BJCM (non-GT) in the store. I tested the BJCM for tipping and didn’t have an issue, so I thought the BJCM GT would be the same. When I got my BJCM GT in the mail I found that it tips MUCH easier with my bag on the handle bar. Granted, my diaper bag is heavy, but I definitely cannot hang it on the stroller or it will tip : (

    My concerns about the gt after a test drive –

    I was so smitten by the BGCM GT when I read the reviews that I wanted one for my daughter. I took her to a local store that carried it n she hated it here is why —

    1) to make the 5 point harness a no retread system. They have clips on the harness by the shoulder that snap onto the backrest. The problem with that is the clasps are right next to the baby’s head/ neck/ shoulder (we tried all) making it uncomfortable for the baby. Now my baby was awake.. If she falls asleep in the stroller, then her head/neck would rub against the clasp making it super uncomfortable

    2) even though it is a no rethread 5 point harness adjusting it to a comfortable feel is not easy (the guy at the store struggled with it )

    Now if baby dosent find it comfy the mommy does not like it either. But mommy had another issue — TIPPING

    I don’t hang diaper bags on the stroller handle, n my daughter is lean but not feather wt. with her in the stroller when the adjustable handle is Ina certain position a little extra wt /pressure on it makes the stroller tip slightly … N that made me uncomfortable.

    I had put up these 2 concerns at various blogging sites where they went gaga over the product (before my daughter tested it) but no one responded… I guess they either get paid to give good reviews or sell the product themselves or just chose to ignore my concerns

    Mommy verdict – let your child test the stroller before you buy it. It might work for you but it did not work for my daughter

    Hollie ..my husband happen to test the GT in a store in ny . He says it could have an issue with tipping if you put a lill wt with ur hands in one position on the handle bar .. Could you please review that for me… That would be the deciding factor for me as I have a lean baby ..also how would you rate the terrain capabilities of britax bagile to baby jogger gt .. I’m looking for a stroller for parks,zoo n a lill beaten up pavements..

    I can’t decide between the CIty MInI GT double, the CIty ElIte double, and the Stroll-AIr My Duo! I need an all-terrain for everything from hiking trails to shopping and I can’t figure out which is best! They all have certain things that the others don’t. Any help would be appreciated!

    Hollie,

    I was wondering, I am trying to decided between a Baby Jogger City Elite double, BJ City GT double, Bob Revolution SE duallie, or Bumbleride Indie Twin! They all seem like great strollers. I will have a tall 22 month old and a newborn in May. In your video for the BJ City Elite, you said that the stroller is 30.5″ and won’t fit through a standard door and that might be a deal breaker. The Bob is 30.5″ and so is the new BJ City Mini GT double! So none of those will fit?? Is this really a huge deal? I am trying to find a stroller I can take to the mall and also do light jogging and walking on all terrain. It’ll be mostly in the garage but I want to be able to put it in the back of my sedan….please help!
