My endless search for the "perfect" double stroller...

So...the idea is finally setting in, in just 4 short months (or less) we will have another baby, so our days will be split between our gorgeous Olivia and her little sister... It's been hard getting used to the idea of sharing my love between two children and even harder to adapt our space to welcome our new little one in such short amount of time...
One of the hardest tasks so far has been finding a double stroller that I love... So far I have a few options but there's always "ifs and buts" to every one of my choices. Some of them are too pricey, some are too bulky, some are too heavy or maybe too uncomfortable. I'm having such a hard time choosing the "perfect" double stroller. Here are some of the options that I have been exploring...

Phil & Ted's Sport Buggy. This one is about $500; it is my first choice although it's pricey. I like it because it's very light weight and very funky and different...


The Sit-N-Stand Plus. This one is less than $200 and it is compatible with the infant carrier that we have, so we could save ourselves some money. It can be bulky but at least both babies will be comfortable...
The Sit-N-Stand Elite. This one is about $190 and it converts to a regular Sit-N-Stand once the older baby gets bigger. It's really heavy and bulky but comfy for both girls!

So far, those are my top three choices. We have yet to try the strollers at the store since most of my research has been done online... Any suggestions???

I like the Phil&Ted. It's a little pricey for me, but I think it's the best out of the three. (I always say "you get what you pay for" =) good luck choosing.

Have you considered the BoB (double) stroller? I have the single and LOVE it.

Good luck with your choice - I've decided already that when the next one comes that i will carry the baby in a sling of sorts and by the time he/she's ready to be in a stroller Kobi will be able to walk on his own and the baby will be able to go in the stroller then.
