BJCM 2012 seating issue remedy

For those who have the BJCM 2012 and find that the seat sags too much, good news Kooltrade will replace the seating fabric for free. I found this through a Facebook group and emailed them today and got a quick response back. If you email them about this issue they will either send you 2011 seating fabric or you can wait till December for a reinforced seat. You should be quick in case they change their minds and stop replacing it as I've read they did do earlier.

Hi! Thanks for this info. Does anyone know which is the better option? Does the 2011 seat have the board in the base?

The 2011 doesn't have the board in the base but it is stitched differently ie horizontal and vertical side panels whereas the 2012 has just horizontal. The 2012 doesn't have the board in the base until these new fabrics arrive at the end of the year. I prefer the 2011 because its got the "sit upright straps" which are useful for older toddlers.

This is the contact page on the website

I also had to email them a while ago about a split handlebar and a lovely lady called Kylie has helped me smile

Does it matter if it's City Mini 4 ? I was disappointed with lack of the board on the seat unit - that's why I replaced my Maclaren...

I have recently bought a 2012 BJCM double for when DC2 is born in December. Haven't used it yet though - what is the exact problem people are having with the seat??

2yo DD is a fair size so if the fabric is prone to sagging I suspect it will do so with her in the seat and would like to request the reinforced fabric beofre they change their minds! We already have a 2010 single which has been fab.

TIA and sorry for the hi-jack.

The seats literally sag. They can be seen even on a new pushchair. I Would get it out and look.
