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

February 16th, 2017

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.

Top 5 Single Strollers

“Whether it’s your first baby or your sixth, a single stroller usually means more available trunk space and the easiest-to-maneuver handling in any of the stroller categories. We’ve assembled the five most impressive single strollers for parents looking for everything from the traditional to the most design-savvy stroller.

Are you tall? Expect to have a huge toddler on your hands? Need somthing that’s going to take on Canadian snow like a boss? The Indie might be your new bestie! It’s got big tires (that come with their own compact pump), all-wheel suspension, an adjustable handlebar, extra-wide seat and the sunshade to take on all other sunshades. Assembly is a bit time consuming, but worth it. Ready from birth through 55lbs., it’s both car seat and bassinet compatible. The best part is that the fabric is 100 percent recycled PET (post consumer plastic water bottles).”- Andrea Traynor, Mommy Gearest for Canadian Family Magazine

Sonnet James + Bumbleride at New York Fashion Week

October 24th, 2016

bumblerideindietwinfashionweek2016

We were honored that Sonnet James chose our Bumbleride Indie Twin in Silver Black for their New York Fashion Week trip.  The stroller proved to wear multiple hats for them and we love the photos. Check out their amazing trip, playful dresses (new line launches November 8th!) and cute baby Leif.

Follow along on Instagram: @sonnetjames + @remistoneman_photo.

“When we were planning our New York trip, we kind of dropped the ball on getting everything we needed for our sweet baby Leif while working on fabrics, samples, designing, and planning the entire shoot, hair and makeup, hotel stay, and flights for our ever growing team.  So when we panicked that we didn’t have a stroller, we searched for the perfect system that would meet our needs and compliment our brand.  When we came across the Bumbleride Indie Twin, it was exactly what we had in mind!  Even with one baby, we knew we’d need plenty of room for our equipment, dresses, cameras, and LOTS of water bottles.  The customer service was incredible and worked with us to flawlessly get the stroller to us in a serious time crunch.  And even when it was super hot and stuffy, we could open up the flaps for better air flow and more comfort for our littlest team member.  Since we left our hotel in the morning and didn’t get home until dark, our Bumbleride was also his crib, which worked out perfectly since each seat lays back to a completely reclined position.  Maneuvering the streets was smooth and easy and we can honestly say, from experience, that it saved our backs and feet, and since we didn’t have to wear a tower of hats and six layers of coats each just to get around, it also kept us as cool as we could get in Manhattan’s September heat.  Thanks for coming to our rescue, Bumbleride!!”
