Good manoeuvrability on uneven terrain
Straightforward to fold
So sad, as I was so excited for this Pram!
I purchased the Bumbleride Indie, after reading the fantastic reviews. I feel extremely let down though, as one of the wheels has been flat since we received the pram and has no wheel cap! Which means I have been unable to use my pram for my new born baby. Hopefully we can have the wheel fixed soon.
We love this pram. It is light, easy to move and easy to get in and out of the car. We used the bassinet feature in the beginning which was great for a sleeping baby, and now use the full pram. It is great for jogging and the outdoors - we've used it on the beach and hiking trails with no issues. It would be great if the storage space was slightly larger underneath. The only issue we've had (and why I didn't give 5 stars), was that the pump doesn't seem to be compatible with the tyres we have. We contacted Bumbleride about this and are apparently getting sent new tryes, but we haven't received them yet,
Great! Smooth ride!
So easy to maneuver - handles amazingly even with one hand. Hand strap is great as an extra security - especially for the tired parents.
Build quality is great - very strong and stable.
Tiny bit clunky to fold down and out- but probably less of an issue for taller people
Great pram for active parents
I am quite happy with this pram.
It is easy to maneuver, i often do it with one hand. Light to push uphill. I walk a lot with it. I love that the canopy goes all the way down so the shade is great. There is a little window on the top to check up on the baby. It would be nice if there were a couple of hooks inside to hang toys.
It's ok to fold and unfold but i wish it could be slightly lighter to carry. Also, i am not impressed with the quality of the pump for the wheels it came with. Another thing I do not like it's the quality of the rain ...

Reliable and easy to use
We have been using this pram for about 9 months and so far are very happy with it. It looks good, it is light but seems sturdy enough to use on fairly rough tracks, it's very easy to steer. Folding is pretty easy although we have the 2015 model which has some manual locking latches, I think the 2016 model would be better which apparently has automatic lock (and better suspension).
The range of the adjustable incline is good. You can also fold up the bottom to make a kind of bassinet shape but our baby's legs were too long for this pretty quic...
Good pram for walks and runs
Purchase this pram before bubs was born. Now that I have used it with bubs for 6 months I felt it was a good time to write a review about it.
1. It has big wheels and a big frame, if you have a small boot space you might want to consider another brand as it does take up a lot of space.
2. It folds down quite easily, weighs approx 10+ kgs, can be tricky to get into the boot of the car of a sedan the first few times till you get the hang of it. Unfolds with one motion when you are ready to use it.
3. Glides around footpaths easily, pe...rfect for long walks and running. Very easy to manoeuvre, can steer with one hand if necessary. I have a four wheeler of a different brand, and can feel the difference immensely. You might find that it is hard to get into restaurants due to larger frame. Shopping centres have been okay so far. 4. There's a bar under the seat that sometimes prevents you from putting bigger items like boxes etc, but otherwise the space is ample for shopping.
Great stroller with a few design flaws that need improvement
Ok, so this is the second indie i have owned in the within the last 18months. The first was the older model, prior to the improvements that bumbleride made for 2013. I had a major issue with the frame bending and the recline was impossible to operate..So ended up getting rid of that stroller. Since then i have been through a fair share of strollers, including the bugaboo cameleon 3 (which i sold due to some concerns about the dodgy recline method which does not offer a smooth transition when lifting the seat from the reclined position...It flew...up and my daughter flew out..). I was in need of a different all terrain stroller, and after some research i decided to give the indie a second chance due to the improvements in design that bumbleride has since made. Here are my thoughts on the pros and cons. Pros: * beautiful materials which offer soft and comfortable fabrics * huge canopy which with the new model now has a mesh peekaboo window with magnetic closures. * handles perfectly over all sorts of terrain with the wonderful air filled tires. These are much better than the ones on the mountain buggy swift which was another contender when i was looking at strollers in this range. * the indie i purchased in australia now comes with a tire pump and rain cover which is a plus. * the stroller is very light for its class - only 20 pounds!
Aswome pram you will turn heads in public pushing this modern pram
The stroller still has the roomy seat that is 13″ wide and has a 19″ seat back and a measurement of 23″ from seatback to canopy that will accommodate taller children. The padded, 5-point, adjustable harness, baby bumper bar, adjustable footrest, deep-strap-reclining seat, huge canopy and adjustable handlebar are all still there!
Questions & Answers
We’ve had our Bumbleride just over 3 years (outside of its warranty). We are currently using it for our second child, it’s a fantastic pram and very versatile. Unfortunately only recently it hasn’t started locking when open, hence it keeps collapsing in on itself when it’s “lifted up”, like trying to get over a road curb. Not ideal with a baby in it. Has anyone had this issue? Is it fixable? We are a bit rural in Australia, so can’t really find a supplier to ask.
Is the single indie bassinet the same as the bassinet for the double indie?
I haven’t used them, but I believe they are different dimensions so not transferable. There is a single bassinet and a twin bassinet listed on the Bumbleride Australia website.
Hi Leah. Jess is right. The Indie Twin bassinet is different to the one for the single strollers. Hope this helps
Can you substitute one seat on the twin for a bassinet? The only pictures I can find either have 2 bassinets or 2 seats but not the 1 each configuration.
