    I have not even used my britax b ready 2012 for 2 weeks its already scratched the wheels r making a scretchy noise … A lil disappointed on how much u money I spend and all this in less than 2 weeks I was better off with my Graco !!!

  2. Yomna says

    Hollie, I am considering either the B-Ready or the City Select. I have only one 4 month old baby but I want to plan for the near future for 2 kids. Which would you recommend as an overall?

  3. says

    I really want this stroller and car seat, cause I can use it for two kids in the future. We are having our first child in November and we will be to starting trying for our second when our first one is one. How close it that second child to you when your walking?? It looks like you will be hitting the child in with your knees and feet, so how safe it it for our second child?? Please help us out we dont know what to do?

    I read that the 2012 will be missing some of the old included accessories. Does the 2012 still come with the rain cover and the removeable storage bag like the old B Ready?

  5. Jennifer says

    Hi Hollie, love your reviews. I have actually been using them to do research on my next stroller (have four but I am looking for a good jogging one). Unfortunatey, B Ready does not fit the bill but it looks like a great stroller, the blue color is beautiful and the tires look awesome (just not for jogging). Wish you had included something about the second seat for those who may not realize it is an option with this stroller.

  6. Debbie says

    Does anyone know if the second seat will work from the old 2011 version on the 2012 version of the B-Ready? Or will they be selling a new 2012 second seat? I haven’t seen this available on any websites yet.

  7. Molly says

    Does anyone know if Britax is going to offer the Free Ride sale (free doubles kit, car seat or bassinet with purchase of stroller) this spring for 2012 B-ready stroller?

  8. Tracy says

    Great review as always Hollie! Very excited about the new tires! I live in Canada & plastic wheels aren’t great in our snowy winters so that has been the main reason I’ve held off on getting a B-Ready.

    Do you know if they changed the buckle on the second seat too? Or did it stay the same? When I was looking at the current model in the store I didn’t like how the straps didn’t stay together (had to slide both waist & chest straps into buckle when doing it up) so I’m hoping this was improved on.

    Thanks :)

  9. Erin says

    How much more of an upright seat is the new one, like just an inch or two? I am so bummed about the new tires, I have only used mine twice so far and wish I knew about the upgrades prior to using it. Oh well!

  10. Jennifer Kreisler says

    They couldn’t take away the choking hazard foam covwered bumper bar? and The foam on the parent bar that maked dirt not just wipe away there either? UGH! I feel like I need to start my own stroller co. They didn’t fix the cup holder that falls off by looking at it? they could do this so easily!

  11. Jeanine says

    I love the changes – I’ve been holding off on registering for the B-Ready due to the wheels. There isn’t any info on bassinet changes for 2012 – UPPAbaby’s bassinet changes were huge. Any word on Britax?

  12. Myong says

    So bummed, I got my B-Ready last spring and just recently started using the toddler seat and my biggest gripe is that it isn’t very upright. Well shoot!
