2017 Indie Twin Double Stroller Review – Tales Of A Mountain Mama

February 16th, 2017

Indie Twin in Camp Green
The updated for 2016 Bumbleride Indie Twin Double All Terrain Stroller is a stroller not to ignore! While I loved our single Bumbleride, there were some great updates made for 2016/17 that made me appreciate it even more.

The Indie series is made for parents looking for a great stroller that is easy to push, lightweight, folds relatively small, protects their child and is eco-conscious. While we do use it running, smaller wheels make it not ideal for super long distances. Though for the average runner going up to 5 miles at a time, it’s great!

A quick list of why Bumbleride Strollers stand out:

-Lightweight (36 lb.) with a 90 lb. weight limit

-Adjustable seats let children lay completely flat

-The best sun shade

-Great for light running (~1 – 5 miles)

-Locking swivel wheel

-Eco-conscious

What we love about the updated Indie Twin:

-Seats lay completely flat for napping and young babies

-The mechanism for adjusting the seats was greatly improved this year allowing it to be a fully one-handed operation

-Sunshades are THE best I have seen with full coverage and then an added pop-out extension

-On the Twin, the seats recline separately

-Locking front swivel wheels (dual)

-Adjustable handlebar (SUPER adjustable – it goes low enough for the 3 year old to push!) and footrests

What we would love to see improved:

-While Bumbleride does make a stroller model more equipped for running (SPEED), it does not come in a double model. I would love to see the Indie have slightly larger wheels.

-Bumbleride strollers are certainly not cheap, but they ARE worth the money if you’re looking for a fantastic eco-conscious stroller!

The Bottom Line

Bottom line? I love this stroller and think the improvements made for 2016/2017 made all the difference from the previous model (which I also loved, but had some quirks). It’s my go-to for a double and works for just about every condition (except long distance running).

Highly recommended by us!

7 Strollers Everybody’s Going To Want In 2017 – BabyCenter

February 15th, 2017


Stroller engineering gets better every year. Proof positive: the following 7 beauties with gee-whiz features like expanding baskets, seats that morph according to your needs, and teeny tiny folds that let you store them anywhere you need…

Bumbleride Speed 2017: If you use a jogging stroller, you’re already familiar with the shortcomings of some models, with wheels that pull or rattle and brakes that shudder. Bumbleride put in some engineering time on the stroller’s Speed3 wheels, which function in 3 modes (thus the name). You can lock them straight-ahead for running, lock them at a 30 degree swivel for slower jogging, or let them swivel all the way around for meandering around. The wheels are huge and will roll over anything — you can take it to the beach! And it stands by itself when folded, so it won’t slip down and hit you in the shins when you store it in your garage. (Bumbleride, $549-$579)

BEST PERFORMANCE ON UNEVEN SIDEWALKS: INDIE TWIN BY BUMBLERIDE

The Indie Twin is a versatile all-terrain double stroller with a narrow side-by-side design. The seats recline with a single lever and an adjustable footrest converts it from an infant to toddler seat quite easily. You only need one hand to push, thanks to its all-wheel suspension air-filled tires (pump included) and adjustable handle. The seats are made with 100% recycled polyester fabric made from post-consumer water bottles, which is soft to the touch. And when you need to store it, the stroller features a one-step fold with an auto lock, plus the stroller can stand on its own even when folded. Learn more.
