anyone have the city mini baby jogger stroller?  how do you like it?  i am looking for something that folds smaller in my car than my phil and teds, but still can handle rough pavement and good dirt roads.

I don't but I am going to be watching this thread! I have a double jogger (a basic InStep) but with the older 2 not needing to ride, I have been interested in the City Mini, but didn't know if you could handle rough roads/paths.

i do and i love it for indoor use or short walks. i wouldn't recommend this one for dirt roads or rough terrain. we live off of a dirt road and i can't use it on there. the wheels are small plastic. 

i love it:
super light
easy, one hand fold
very flat and compact in the trunk
AWESOME sun shade
great recline

i don't like it for:
storage- the underneath is ok size but it's impossible to get things under there without going through the side and even then it's a squeeze
everything is sold separately- the tray, or anything else. i like strollers with adult cup holder and child tray
the tray sits crazy high, we bought it and it's not by dd's waist, but by her chest, and she is a toddler now
it can't stand when folded. so when you carry it to the car or house you have to put it flat on the ground, or unfold to full size 
the fully upright position for sitting is still reclined a bit too much imo

i know it sounds like a lot of cons, but the pros outweigh them to me. light, easy, compact and dd loves it- that's what mattered most. and right now the 2011s are on sale for $180 i think instead of the regular $230 price!
