In the end I trusted my gut and picked a stroller. it's nice, not perfect but it works for me and my children. So my advice is do a little research make sure there is a good return policy just in case your not satisfied and find that balance between your child comfort, your comfort and your wallet.
But If your adventurous I would recommend the Taga Bike/Stroller, came across this the other day and couldn't resist fantasising about taking my kids for a ride. While it's sold only in Europe right now I'm sure if you "Grease the right wheel" you may be able to finagle yourself a Taga.
Taga will be available soon through selected nursery and bicycle stores in Europe.
