They look huge, heavy and awkward.

This is the pram I'm considering. Will have 2 year old and new born. Have had a demo in the shop, I'm worried it's long but I think there's going to be an issue with every pushchair?!

Huge, heavy and awkward yes, yes and yes. I stopped using mine very quickly. DH still perseveres with the bloody thing but its much easier to stick DS2 in the sling and DS1 can use the old buggy when necessary. It should be great but in reality its a bulky great unwieldy behemoth.

It is amazing - to look at, all those different positions, no sticking baby at the back low down, very manoeuverable in John Lewis but totally impractical in the real world with two seats and far too heavy.

Its probably the best tandem I have used for seating positions, huge seats, options, small fold, easy to store, huge basket, handbrake etc etc. Fab for the early months, but first we had an issue when our eldest kicked the little one in the face when they were facing each other, which then limited the seating options, followed by the pushchair becoming too heavy to push. You read this, and with a newborn in, you wonder what people mean. But believe me I had pains up my arms. I was totally gutted but there was no way I could push it, and even now my arms hurt when I think about it.
Just to add, its a myth that the City Select is long - its actually shorter than most other similar tandems on the market at present. Phil&Teds and the B-Dual are longer for example because the City Select seats pretty much sit within the frame size whereas the others have overhang at the back.

DS1 is too big for the seat now anyway at 2.5y. He sort of perches on it and his head touches the hood.

Have you moved the hood up to the higher position?

Yes, his head still brushes it except in the very centre. I think we are spoilt by his big Classic with enormous seat.

I have DS1 who is 2yo and DS2 who is 5mo. I love it Grin

It is super narrow and I adore the massive huge basket Grin
