The Indie Twin is Bumbleride's double stroller and offers the most desirable features, has great style and color choices, weighs less and folds smaller than many of its four-wheeled competitors, and is built to last for years.
This double stroller for twins offers a large, height-adjustable, wrap-around handle, which makes pushing in a natural position very easy. This means that shorter parents won't have a problem handling the Indie Twin stroller, and plenty of legroom also means that tall parents will be equally comfortable pushing this Bumbleride stroller.
Pushing is what the Indie Twin does so much better than most other doubles! With four air-filled, 12" tires rolling on alloy wheels - and with suspension built into the frame - the Indie Twin stroller pushes better than the majority of double strollers available. With young babies, this is nice to know, but as your children grow heavier it becomes even more important to have a smooth, easy push when carrying a load!
For shopping or excursions in the neighborhood or farmers market, the underseat basket is very large. The extra behind-seat pockets are added conveniences for items you want within easy reach. For additional storage for keys, wallet, and cell phone, you can add the optional Parent Pack.
As with all of Bumbleride's strollers, the fabric quality and colors stand out from the pack! If you're looking for a double stroller that complements your personality and isn't part of the humdrum crowd of double strollers, the Indie Twin shines.
Seat comfort and safety
The Bumbleride Indie Twin's seatbacks independently recline deeply, and each adjustable footrest can also be adjusted for a very comfortable position for the child. The seats include a 5-point safety harness with matching shoulder pads. When fully reclined, the seats are suitable for use with newborns. For protection outdoors, the Bumbleride's twin stroller has very generous canopies with a special lining that provide SPF 45 sun protection.
Using with infant car seats
The Indie Twin stroller includes one universal-fit infant seat adapter bar that is compatible with Graco Snugride, Graco Snugride 32, Peg Perego Primo Viaggio SIP 30/30, Britax Chaperone, Combi Shuttle, and Baby Trend Flex Loc. Like most other side-by-side strollers, only one infant seat can be used at a time on the Bumbleride Indie Twin except for the optional Maxi Cosi Mico / Cybex Aton infant car seat adapter, which can accommodate one or two.

Stroller was easy to set up. I love everything about the stroller. Right now we have a S40 Volvo and it fits in trunk if I take off the back wheels. Leaving little to no room. Future buyers yes it will fit in a small compact but be aware of the lack of space.I can tell it will male trips a cumbersome taking it in and out of a small car and constantly taking tires on and off. Other than that I love it
happy with my purchase

All the great things about this stroller have already been said. Super smooth, easy to push, great turning ability, fits easily through doors. I love the large canopies, roomy basket, and that the footrests can be adjusted individually.
Annoyances that I wont fault the stroller for, since no stroller is perfecf: it does take effort to lift it up and into the back of the car, but all double strollers are heavy. The location of the cup holder is not the best- it is on the side and not behind the stroller. When using it, the added few inches makes the stroller too wide to fit through a standard width door. But since I am only using the stroller outdoors or at the mall, this is not a big issue. After folding the stroller, there are little snaps on either side to lock it in place before lifting it into the car. You have to really push down on the stroller for that snap to reach and lock into place. I wish bumbleride can somehow make an automatic lock when the stroller is folded.
I took away one star for the following reasons: the instructions were clear that the tires needed to be inflated to a specific PSI. I fully expected the tires to be at that level, but they were not. We had to go out and purchase a pump. I feel that brand new out of the box the tires should be inflated properly. My other complaint is that with the car seat on one side, it is very difficult to use the canopy on the other. My chicco keyfit is just a little too wide so the opposite canopy is hard to tilt forward and fully shield my toddler.
I have used this to shop at the grocery store, the mall, walks in the park. Overall I am extremely happy with it. Have not yet used the included belly bars, but I do find the snack pack to be a great add on accessory.

The bumbleride 2013 looks really good. We got the Fog grey color. We are yet to order our maxi cosi adapters. There are few improvements which could be done:
1. Provide the air pump as part of standard package.
2. Improve the assemble instructions.
3. It doesn't fold completely and leaves some gap. You need to push hard to get it locked. They could increase the length of the lock to easily rest on the bar and then provide a press lever which could tighten the grip.
Overall, I am happy with my purchase. We got it just couple of weeks back and haven't used it so far.
We made the right decision

After exhaustive research, we definitely picked the right double stroller for us. The Bumbleride Indie Twin is fabulous! I was worried about fitting through doorways, but it does. Even our interior doors! It's great for long walks and even works with just my toddler in it. The only negative is the amount of space it takes up when folded, but all doubles are like that. I'm thrilled with our purchase! I wish the Bumbleride customer service had been a bit more receptive when my husband called to ask what he could do to repair a scratch he had put on the frame while putting it together. They weren't interested in helping him at all and told him to contact Peppy Parents. But the stroller is fabulous!
Best baby purchase ever!

This stroller is like a dream come true! It's a smooth ride. Even with 2 toddlers, it can be maneuvered with one hand through aisles, around clothes racks, over bumps and curbs, and through a single doorway. It is extremely comfortable for both of my girls (ages 2 and 4). It fully reclines for naps with room to spare. There's even room to spare for my older daughter who is pretty tall. The basket is huge and fits a diaper bag and several shopping bags. The only downfalls I've come across are after a year of use the tires deflate rather quickly and constantly need air to maintain the smooth, effortless ride. And there are no cup holders for the girls' drinks and the generic ones you can buy don't stay attached. We solved this by attaching one to the handle bars and I just need to manage the drinks. Surely the absolute best baby item we have purchased and worth every cent!
Great double stroller!

We take our bumbleride double stroller for Madilyn, 22 months, and baby Kiersten, everywhere and highly recommend this product. We love its plush comfort, size (fits through doorway) and portability.
Worth the $
Posted by Busy mom on the go on 16th Jan 2015
This is one of the best purchases I have made as a parent. I bought the Indie Twin just after the birth of my second child, my first was 18 months old. The seats were roomy enough to accommodate my toddler, but comfortable enough for my newborn. I have used to stroller for jogging, shopping, days at the zoo, treks through the woods, cross-country flights, and in every situation and terrain it performs very well.
The fashionable look of the stroller sets it apart from other baby joggers. The accessories, for the most part, exceeded my expectations. The underbasket is huge - I can stow my purse, diaper bag, shopping bags, etc., and it is very easily accessible. The sun canopies provide ample shade even when seats are upright. It is very easy to fold and store, the handles make tossing it in the back of my minivan literally no sweat. It is much easier to maneuver than my single shopping stroller...I always prefer to bring the double even if only one of my children is with me!
The only design/performance issue I have encountered is the placement of the cupholder. The stroller is as wide as it can be while still fitting through a standard doorway, but the cupholder attaches on the outside of the handle, making the whole apparatus too wide to fit through most doorways. I solved this problem by simply taking off the Bumbleride cupholder and purchasing a generic one that attaches in the middle of the handle.
All in all, this is well worth the investment.
Perfect for every use

I've had my Indie Twin for 4 months now and it's worked great with my newborn (4 months old) & toddler (21 months old). It's compatible with my infant carrier (Graco Snugride 32), so it didn't require that I buy additional parts just to use it. I've used it on all types of terrain & haven't had a problem with it in the slightest. Plus, it fit into my rather small car which I found most other double strollers would not.
My only complaint would be that sometimes I've had the plastic pieces that hold the stroller in the folded position pop open, but I don't find it to be a big deal in the slightest.
A great double stroller
Posted by Claudia on 16th Jan 2015
I researched double strollers and finally decided on the bumbleride. I am very pleased with my decision. I have a toddler and a new born. My 2 year old is comfortable in it, even with the infant car seat along side her. It maneuvers very well just as well as my bugaboo. The set up is rather simple and it is great to have a stroller you can just open and close without taking anything apart. The basket is a nice size. The only negatives I found with the stroller is that it is a bit heavy and bulky and the buckles can be unfastened by my toddler. You would need an suv or a car with a large trunk. I would buy this stroller again and I would recommend it to a friend.

As soon as we got our Bumbleride Twin we took it out for a spin! It was easy to put together. The ride was very smooth. It's easy to manoeuvre even with both children in it and the car seat. I have a 2yr old and a 7 month old. When I'm out on my own I can carry one child and push and steer the stroller with one hand. The basket is huge. I can fit the diaper bag, blankets, a small cooler, and sweaters for the kids... Taking it jogging is also great however it gets a little heavy pushing it after awhile. I'm not crazy about the seat straps. They are a little flimsy but they do their job. Overall I feel we got the best double stroller in its price range. I would recommend it.
Great stroller, few drawbacks
Posted by Mom of 2 on 16th Jan 2015
As do most parents, I did a lot of research before purchasing this stroller and so far I am pleased. Pros: very easy to manuver, great canopies, LOVE the storage basket, comes with tons of accessories, quality materials, very easy to assemble, adjustable handlebar, seat recline and footrests. Cons: It is heavy, bit most doubles are, difficult to fold and locking mechanism is a joke, no hand brake, not really an all-terrain stroller (if this is important, get a BOB), also not compatible with Chicco KF any longer, which stinks. All is all this a solid stroller ideal for city dwellers and some suburban moms who don't mind lifting it. The storage alone is a step above most higher-end doubles.
The best double stroller EVER!
Posted by Delighted Mum on 16th Jan 2015
After much research and a failed attempt to purchase an inline double stroller, I bought this Indie Twin 2010 stroller and couldn't be happier! My almost two toddler loves it, especially with the snack pack attachment and my almost 2 month baby is secure with a smooth ride. This stoller is a HUGE plus in our lives and I take it everywhere- freedom! The cargo space is large and easy to access. The quality of the stroller is top notch. I like how well thought out everything is... this is how all strollers should be!!! I also own a BOB and the Orbit System and by far.. this is the stroller of choice! Enjoy your purchase as much as I do!!!
Love this stroller
Posted by mamaof 2 on 16th Jan 2015
I really love this stroller and get a LOT of compliments when out with it. It is easy to open, seems quite comfortable for the kids (I have an infant and a 2 year old), has a HUGE basket underneath, comes standard with most of the accessories that other brands make you pay separate for, and glides around sooooo easily. The steering on this stroller is amazing and the ride is quite smooth. It is a bit heavy but that's to be expected for a double. Fits easily through nearly any door that I've had t go through
Posted by Jill on 16th Jan 2015
This is my first double stroller so I don't have much to compare this to, but the Bumbleride Indie Twin is a great stroller (did alot of research). I thought it was easy to set up and function. The 29" width is fabulous! It fits through practically any doorway (without the cupholder which sticks out of the side and is a little flimsy). The basket is a good size, but access is slightly narrow. I have not yet mastered folding it down (which is why I marked "bulky" above), but thats partially my own fault for not following the directions more closely. I can still quickly colapse halfway and get it in the back of my Pilot. The ride is smooth on any surface. I have to say its nice to be able to go from paved surfaces to grass/gravel or use on a bumpy sidewalk with almost no trouble. I currently have a 7 week old and a 2yr old and the stroller works great with only one or both in it. The handling is great too, turns on a dime (even with one hand!). I think the 4 wheels vs 3 is the way to go with a double. The only small downfall is my baby carrier (Graco snugride) hangs over into the 2nd seat, but its not too bad and not that big of a deal since my baby won't be in the carrier too much longer. I think its great that almost any carrier will fit in it and you don't have to buy an adapter. Many of the better strollers do not come with any accessories which is ridiculous. Overall, I think this is the best stoller for the $$.
Best on market!

Very good stroller. Looks durable, nice and stylish. Strongly recommend to other parents of two.
Posted by mamafz on 16th Jan 2015
I love my bumbleride and wanted one since I found out we were pregnant with #2. The color is super cute and it looks very stylish. I get complimented often. Works great with my 2 1/2 year old and 1 year old. They love to hold hands as we walk. The storage area underneath is huge con is a thin opening making a tight squeeze for my large diaper bag. Easy to manuever glides over about anything. The biggest con is the size when folded, very large bearly fits in my trunk.
Very good stroller
Posted by Jay on 16th Jan 2015
I use the stroller for some jogging at 8-9 mile pace n it wiggled when front wheels are unlocked. Could have used some ind suspension on the front wheels to keep it in contact with road. Still bulky but I guess it comes with territory of duals. Looks great with great nylon fabric, cleans easily. If using with 1 kid only there is a pulling to the heavier side if jogging, but can't notice with walking speeds.

For a side by side stroller this one's GREAT! Lots of functions, easy to maneuver. I originally bought the Phil&Teds Vibe inline stroller and was so unhappy with it. First of all, my toddler didn't fit into the rumble seat so I wasn't going to be able to use it until my second child was big enough to hold her head up (3-4 months). And it was really hard to maneuver. So I went with a side by side. And although wider than an in-line stroller, this one fits easily through doorways and is easy enough to maneuver with one hand. I also love all the features...individual seat adjustments, easy breaking, huge basket underneath, and that it comes standard with the infant car seat adapter! And on top of it all...it looks great! I will admit, it is heavy, but so are all double strollers. And because this is a side by side, it is bulky. But then again, I'm used to my great single stroller. But for a double, I don't know if it gets any better than this. I Love it!!
The Best Stroller we ever bought!
Posted by Busy Mommy on 16th Jan 2015
Love the stroller!!! We have a 3 year old and a 3 month old!!! My 3 year old loves it! It has all the bells and whistle that 2 busy working parents could ask for!!!
Posted by Cincospn on 16th Jan 2015
I have an 8 month old and a 3 year old and we got it right before we had #2. This stroller is pricey, but so worth it. It is such a smooth ride and very high quality! It is a little difficult to fold, but that is my only complaint! Love the reclining seats and that it is narrow enough to fit through doorways!
