Question City Mini Stroller for older children?

Does anyone have any experience with the city mini stroller offered by Orlando Stroller Rentals and Magic Strollers for older children? My children are 6 and 5, and average size for their age. I would have preferred the classic offered by OSR, but they are sold out.

Is the city mini manageable with children with a combined weight of close to 100 lbs? I wonder if my 6-year old DD will even be comfortable in it.

Clearly, they will be walking a lot, but we want a stroller for those long days.

Thank you.

I don't have experience w/ the double but I have a single that I used w/ my dd who just turned 7 in aug. I have a little trouble pushing her around in it but she is disabled and her weight is mostly dead weight the push is managable but much better w/ my 10 yr old who weighs 65 pounds my 7 yr old weighs 61 pounds.

I have a Joovy Kooper that is very similar to the City Mini. My 11 yr. old hops in it when she's goofing around and I have no problem pushing it...she's 70ish pounds.

Thanks for the info. Would you say that the children can fit in the stroller too?
