Personally I'd go the second seat.
I like to go for big walks and flutter around a lot. My 4 (almost 5) year old still gets tired on our walks!! I have a hitch hiker for her but if he wasn't too tall for the second seat I would have kept that!! Lol
I'd get one with a toddler seat. My 3 year old DS walks most places, but he gets tired on long shopping trips or if we're outdoors for most of the day.
I have been browsing online at different types of strollers - the Phil and Ted's Vibe looks good too and more of an off road one. Anyone have experience with one of them?
I have the steelcraft compact for this coming bub with the toddler seat. Ds2 will be 3.5yrs and although he does ride his bike, I'm a big walker and can't expect ds to walk or ride the distance I walk. I had the city series previously and well and truelly utilised the toddler seat with ds1.
I have a Phil and Ted's and wouldn't recommend it. It's pretty heavy and not as easy to use as my baby jogger city mini.
