Bumbleride Speed Jogging Stroller Vs. BOB Revolution Jogging Stroller – PegLegMegRuns.wordpress.com

Running with Speed Jogging Stroller

“But first, let me provide a little background on my stroller experiences. When I was pregnant I registered for the BOB Revolution SE and my wonderful Santa Cruz running friends got me one (thank you!). I literally did no research, it was the only running stroller brand I know about and I liked the navy blue. My real advice is do some research, the Bumbleride may not be your dream stroller – maybe it’s the BOB or another great ride. But find out what is important to you in a stroller and then pick one. That’s my real regret but such is life. Anyway, we didn’t use the stroller until miniKEG was 8 weeks old because I didn’t bother with a carseat adapter (she was content hanging in the carrier with mom or dad) and I didn’t run with her until she had good neck and core support – about 5 months. But once I started running, I found some of the limitations the BOB Revolution SE posed for me. The handlebar was too short and caused me back pain and because this was our only stroller, it came with us everywhere and I found the BOB to be long and cumbersome at times. The other irk for me was the basic undercarriage of the stroller was hard to get stuff in and out of (remember I do a lot of errand running). When my running buddy/partner in crime, Connie, got the Bumbleride I was immediately jealous: I loved the color, the design, and the adjustable handlebar. Fast forward a couple months, and I, too, had the Bumbleride (thanks Erin!)”…..Read More.

Gugu Guru Stroller Registry

Jogging and running in an urban environment is a great way to stay fit and healthy, but when you throw a stroller into the mix, things can get hairy. Between narrow sidewalks, potholes, public transportation and people traffic, finding the perfect jogging stroller for city living can be a challenge. After chatting with many parents, and lots of research, we rounded up our top picks for urban environment jogging and running strollers.
Bumbleride Indie All Terrain Stroller Eco Friendly

Best Storage Pick:

Bumbleride Indie: This is an absolutely gorgeous stroller with great features – a wide canopy, compact fold and ample storage. We also love that the stroller is manufactured with eco-friendlier textiles. We wouldn’t necessarily recommend this stroller for hard core runners, but it’s a high-quality option for your one and only day-to-day stroller and jogger.

2017 Indie Twin Review – Growing Up Jack

June 28th, 2017

growin up jack indie twin stroller review

“Together my husband and I spent hours researching the best double strollers. With so many options and factors to consider, deciding on a double for our baby and toddler was considerably harder than deciding on a single for us. It all paid off though, we ended up with one of the best: the Bumbleride Indie Twin. After a solid six months of using it, I feel like I can finally give an official review of it. It’s love, and here’s why:

The Indie Twin is a side by side all terrain stroller that can be used as a jogging stroller when the front wheels are locked. All-wheel suspensionand air-filled tires (a pump comes with the stroller) are features I didn’t think I needed, but now would have a really hard time living without. We have taken this stroller on the sand, rocky trails, and I regularly walk it on grassy hills.. all smooth and easy! Having the freedom to really take your stroller anywhere is amazing, and I am officially converted to the all terrain life.

Beyond being able to handle really rough terrain, this stroller is a dream to push and maneuver. I take it on walks daily and it always comes to Disneyland with us. One thing I absolutely need in a double stroller is the ability to push it easily one-handed and the Indie Twin completely satisfies that. I love that I have no problems pushing it while reaching down to give the baby a toy or the toddler a snack (a huge perk of side by sides, both kids are always in reach!) It really does not feel much different than maneuvering a single stroller, and it is only as wide as 30 inches (if a doorway is big enough for a wheelchair, it will be big enough for this stroller!)”…. Read more.

Great Mother’s Day Gift Ideas For Active Mothers-To-Be – CBS Los Angeles

May 8th, 2017

Sara Haley has some great mother’s day gift ideas for active mothers-to-be including our Bumbleride Speed jogging stroller.

Workout-Friendly Stroller:

The Bumbleride “Speed” is the perfect way to ease back into a workout routine as a new mom. It’s lightweight and has swivel technology, which makes it perfect for running or walking. Furthermore, if you’re pregnant with toddlers already at home, putting them in the stroller is a great way to stay fit during pregnancy. It may sound crazy but the support of a stroller can be great to ease issues like sciatica when walking so if you already have a stroller and baby hasn’t arrived, load it up with groceries, etc. and start getting used to it while you ease the pain. (Price: $549)

Some of my other favorite features of the stroller include…click to read about Sara’s favorite Speed features!

Pregnancy & Newborn Magazine – Speed Jogging Stroller Review

April 4th, 2017

Let’s start by acknowledging what everyone is thinking: Running is hard. And running with a baby—exponentially harder. But, if you are inclined to do it, you could do far worse than the Bumbleride Speed. Introduced in 2016, the Speed keeps baby comfortable and makes jogging with your little one as easy and enjoyable as it should be…

Using the Speed is intuitive and—dare we say it—a joy. Until you’re ready to hit the pavement, it stays anchored firmly in place thanks to a large, foot-operated brake bar. The handle swoops out wide behind the stroller, leaving plenty of space for running legs, and the entire handlebar adjusts up and down. We found its adjustments comfortably accommodated mom (5’5”) and dad (6’0”) without issue. The Speed’s three large wheels are virtually resistance-free, providing a smooth and cooperative platform for jogging, walking or anything in between.

The Speed’s signature feature is its three-setting front wheel assembly. With the simple maneuvering of a small rod, the front wheel can be moved between three distinct configurations. The first is the traditional jogging stroller setup, with the front wheel locked in place. This locked setup allows easy movement forward and some small steering adjustments, but is not conducive to quick or significant turns. The second configuration—our favorite—allows the front wheel to swivel 30 degrees either direction, facilitating unimpeded jogging without the constraints of a fully locked wheel. It’s ideal  for jogs around the neighborhood, when we’re navigating frequent turns and curves. The third and final configuration allows the Speed’s front wheel to turn freely, rotating a full 360 degrees. This configuration is perfect for walks or more leisurely use. We’ll often jog with the wheel locked or semi-locked to the farmer’s market and then switch it to swivel when arrive and make our way around the various produce and pastry (hey, we earned it by jogging there) booths.

The build quality is fantastic. The Speed’s metal frame feels solid and is welded together at its various joints. The wheels lock firmly onto the frame and, even with considerable effort, we could not get them to come loose (or even wobble). There is a wrist strap affixed to the handle bar so that if mom or dad has to suddenly slow, the Speed does not fly away unattended. Finally, it comes with a charming little bell that can be mounted in various positions on the handlebar and helps you warn others as you approach….

Overall, using the Speed is a joy—something we never thought we would say about a jogging stroller. It feels like a product designed to either make your life easier or, at worst, stay out of your way. It is light and nimble and its adjustable front wheel gives it a versatility that many jogging strollers seem to lack. If you are looking to take baby out into the world and get into (or back into) jogging with your little one, the Bumbleride Speed should be at the top of your list.
