It seems better choice for me, my concern is about the weight of the stroller, 26 pounds, I think it's a lot, do you feel the weight when you push it?

    Just out of curiousity...were you pushing it on thin store like carpet? Just about every stroller is hard to push on that.

    The Elite's weight is not a problem for me. There is no concern when pushing it, because there is only 3 wheels (less resistance), and the tires are air tires. Air tires make it extremely easy to push and maneuver.

    Re: Baby Jogger City Series Pictures of Elite and Mini...

    How do you like the string pull seat adjuster? Does the seat move forward with the kid if they sit up to look around? That's one of the only things holding me back from buying a city mini. Well, that and I've read a few reviews about it tipping really easy. I want to check it out in person, but I don't think BRU carries it in store.

    I found the best deal for it at babyage.com. If you go through bing.com you can save 10-15%. Then if you sign up for the email list on babyage they'll give you $10. And I have a friends refferal code for a extra $5 off any order. If anyones interested in the code you can email me privatly. My friend couldn't care less if her code gets used because she only gets $1 everytime it's used, and the funds have to be used within 2 or 3 months. She's not planning on buying anything, but it will save you $5.

Does it recline totally flat or does it recline more like a Graco stroller. We bought the Cortina, because it reclines flat. We are huge Clemson fans, so the orange stroller is great!
    We took the City Mini on the King County Metro bus. Yes, it took a bit of space, but it fit between my knees and the seatback and my husband held our baby. On the way back, we sat in a side facing seat and put tehs troller underneath.

    We were also able to use the Mini on a grass footpath (A water main right of way) and in the park for 4th of July festivities with no problems.

    Thanks for your advices,
    I got my City Elite and I love it. It's the best stroller I have ever had! My 2 1/2 years old seems to love it too!

    That's great to hear! Do you know what the manufacture year on it is (it's on a sticker on the stroller, or etched into the metal on the frame somewhere)? Just curious, because they changed things on the 2010 model.
