lol Totally disagree!!! I have 2 friends, both of which are tiny tiny mama's...one of them I don't even think weighs 100lbs and they both manage just fine with their City Selects! Even lifting them into their large SUV's isn't an issue for them. I've taken over pushing, so she can dig out her keys and pushing hers, plus my own was a breeze...but that could be the difference between real life experience and just 'test driving'?!
Quoting *Lex!e* ( A&G +1's mom ):" I guess I've got a lot of "test driving" to do :) I have to find somewhere that keeps a floor model of the Donkey. Does it fold with the seats or do they need to come off like the cam?"
They don't need to come off...but if you want any chance of fitting it in your car they do! lol And I just watched the video again..how do they even consider that 'folded'?! :lol: Oh Bugaboo...if one they would make a double Bee, that would be a HOT seller!!! Demo in next comment:
Oh my goodness I'll need a tank to fit that :( not going in my countryman lol!!!

It MIGHT actually work if you fold in Mono mode, then stack the seats!? This is the new Bugaboo Buffalo [similar frame, wheels, seat and fold] Actually the mono fold might even be smaller and it seems to fit just fine in the Mini...you might be ok, especially if you use it with the car seat adapter...then seat and just skip the carrycot [or only use it for walks aroudn the neighborhood!?]
I own the City Select and the Bugaboo Donkey. I live in a suburban setting, and generally drive to places. I found that the City Select is great for going shopping and running errands, and the narrow width does help me get down some aisles that I couldn't with a SBS. Initially I had a Britax B-agile double, that looked saggy right away, then got a Bumbleride Indie Twin, which is terrific, but I couldn't lift it properly due to the weight and the bulkiness of the fold. (this is used just for day excursions and walks now). SO I got a City Select, which is a bit like pushing a bus, and a bit difficult to turn in doubles mode, but it's much easier to lift because it breaks down, and I have flexibility in where to store the seats, so I have more trunk space. The Donkey, even when folded in mono mode, still takes up more space than the City Select. It does push nicely, but really about the same as my Bumbleride Indie Twin, which might even be a little nicer. Personally, I think all the pricier strollers push nicely, and in the stores, I found the City Mini Double GT, BOB, Uppababy, Bugaboo, and Bumbleride to have similarly smooth pushes.
