help with cool buggies - 3 wheeled double ones

Has anyone in Sheffield got a 3 wheel double buggy they are looking to be rid of. I need one that lies flat for a new born and has another seat suitable for a toddler, the models I have looked at on the internet are as follows

Urban detour - Mothercare

Zooper twin - John Lewis

Instep nipper double - various sites
XTS twin jogger/ twister- various sites, my dilema is that I begrudge paying a lot of money as I am only going to need it over the winter. My toddler is 26 months and walks a lot but I feel when the baby is born in december as it is the middle of winter I would prefer him to be in a buggy next to the baby rather than being exposed on a buggy board, then when weather is better in may/june we can put younger one into our current mamas and papas one and the older one can walk or have a buggy board. Please let me know if anybody has one preferably with the raincover, and at least one liner and cosytoes for the baby.

Not sure what to post this under so thought I owuld go for style as that is one reason I am thinking of a 3 wheeler and not the traditional 4 wheels

Would be better posted under Wanted. Or for the general questions, under Products.

summermum no Nipper double has fixed front wheel (assuming it?s like the single which we have) but everyone who uses ours says how light and easy to move it is, I imagine in comparison to other 3-wheelers. Never missed not having the swilly wheel tbh.
I hear what you are sayign about winter etc but have you thought about the sling for baby/toddler in buggy option for a few months then a buggyboard? worked well for me (2yr gap as well) and avoids the horrors of a double (getting into shops, getting it into the boot, etc etc).

good idea scaryclary, that was something i never thought of, i was considering the nipper as apparenlty it is quite narrow and gooes through most doors, might be best fo rpost baby budget though if i can't get into shops, hubby would save a fortune if i was unable to shop.
