Bumbleride Indie Twin Stroller Frequently Asked Questions
The Bumbleride Indie Twin stroller is a full-featured double stroller that's perfect for urban and suburban adventures. It's consistently rated as one of the best choices for newborn twins.
Can I install two infant seats in the Bumbleride Indie Twin?
Yes! The Bumbleride Indie Twin can accommodate two Maxi Cosi Mico, Maxi Cosi Prezi or Cybex Aton infant seats with purchase of separate upper and lower adapters featuring stadium style seating. Other compatible infant seats like Graco, Peg Perego, Chicco, and Britax can only be used one at a time on the Indie Twin.
Is the Indie Twin a jogging stroller?
The Bumbleride double stroller is an all-terrain stroller designed with specific features and capabilities that enable versatility, durability and multi-use functionality. This can include light jogging on level surfaces. The front wheels must be in the locked position for added stability. Light jogging is a mile or two a day at a pace that is faster than walking but slower than a full run. The Indie Twin is not recommended for long-distance or high-speed training runs. As all children develop at different rates, please confer with your pediatrician to ensure that stroller-jogging is safe for your child. Never jog or run with an infant seat attached, as the stroller may be unstable.

Does the Indie Twin stroller go on sale?
Usually, there are restrictions about using promo codes or coupon codes for the Indie Twin stroller. Sometimes at the end of each calendar year, Bumbleride will authorize sales on discontinued fabric colors. Because of dealer agreements, it's difficult to find the Bumbleride Indie Twin on sale at an authorized dealer that includes the 3-year warranty.
Is the Indie Twin fabric washable?
All Bumbleride fabric is composed of a breathable nylon/bamboo blend for long lasting, color-safe wear. The seat fabric is removable and machine washable in cold water on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent. For tough spots, pre-treat with Oxiclean or another bleach alternative. Due to the canopy's frame construction, the canopy must be spot cleaned. Please note that all Bumbleride fabric should be air or line dried. Do not machine dry any Bumbleride fabric.
How does the accessory cup holder attached to the Indie Twin?
When standing behind your Bumbleride, a dime-sized knob extends from the right or left side of the handle bar. The cup holder will have a circular cut-out that will lock onto this knob and swivel when needed.
Where is the serial number or Date of Manufacture on my Bumbleride?
The serial number and DOM of your Bumbleride is located on a white, rectangular sticker affixed to the frame. The Date of Manufacture will also be located on this sticker.
What are the dimensions of the Indie Twin shipping box?
The box measures 39 x 26 x 11 inches and weighs 41 pounds.
What does it mean to use recycled PET on the exterior fabrics?
PET (or polyethylene terephthalate) is a polyester that's commonly used in packaging, like water bottles. All polyesters are made using synthetic fibers. Bumbleride can break down, sterilize, and create new fabric from existing materials, which helps reduce landfill space and prevents the unnecessary production of new materials.
What does it mean to use bamboo charcoal on the interior fabrics?
Creating bamboo charcoal involves breaking down natural bamboo fibers into very small particles that are blended into polyester fabric. Bamboo has excellent natural qualities like moisture absorption, temperature regulation and helps to prohibit bacterial growth in the seating area of your stroller. The result is a soft, durable fabric that looks good and is better for baby.
