Hi I am wanting to purchase a Mountain Buggy Duet. I have been given an older Mountain Buggy Duo which is a great pram but its just so big and heavy to get in and out of the car and our dog which is a large dog (Golden Retriever) has to squish in the side of the boot and lay on the pram to fit in the car which is not ideal because 95% the time when we are going for a walk we are taking him plus his hair gets all over the pram as well when he is laying on it. I was wondering has anyone with a Toyota Prado purchased the Duet and how does it fit in the boot? How much space in the boot would you say you have around the pram? Thanks

Is the depth of the seat adjustable? My nearly two year old seems to slide down as there is no depth in the seat?

Hi I’m planning to buy the MB single car seat adaptor to fit my 2.5 duet and I’m wondering do you have to remove the main seat fabric in order to be able to attach the car seat or can you just sit the car seat over the seat fabric once the adaptors are fitted? I just want to be able to swap between the car seat option/normal seat as required. Thanks

I'm wondering if there are replacement canopies for the 2011 duet, does anyone know? It doesn't appear there are any on the website, will the 2014 ones fit?

They only seem to have one side of a hood available on the website for the 2011/2012 model, but I had a 2012 duet and I purchased 2014 hoods and they still worked they just didn’t have the buttons to attach to the seat frame, it made no difference to the seats just a little gap when the seats were reclined flat. They just attached with toggles around the top bar instead of buttoning on. Hope this helps!

I have a 2011 Duet. Can I buy one of the current Duet rain covers for it or will it be too small? Or I can find a old Duo (pre 2009 NZ model) rain cover for sale - would this fit it? Alternatively, do any of the universal covers work for it?

I have had a look in their website for compatible accessories for the legacy diet and it seems you can buy a storm cover to fit. https://mountainbuggy.com/au/Buy/accessories/pre-2017-duet/legacy-duet

At the risk of not fitting,I'd buy one from the mountain buggy website.

Thanks for looking- I appreciate it. Unfortunately there doesn’t seem to be any double storm covers for sale on their website (only single), so was hoping there might be another option.

Has anyone had issues with back wheels clicking? My Mountain buggy duet V3 is driving me crazy!

Haven't had that problem with mine nor my sister's MB duet pram... I'd take it to a bicycle repair place to see if it's a simple wheel or tyre issue.
Good luck!

Not with the duet, but my terrain does have a very subtle click. I think the tire needs to be removed and cleaned and put back on.

I have this issue with a v3, I purchased one second hand and around the wheel it has corroded, previous owner must have taken it to the beach lots... I ordered a new back wheel so hoping this helps the problem ! But taking the wheel off a lubricating it with a silicone based lubricant might work ?

Sorry I wish I could help but I have never tried, I know you can go into a baby shop & try it out as I did that with my other pram city mini. Good luck

Hi,
I'm having difficulty assembling the seats back to the frame after using the bassinet for my twin newborns they are ready to sit in the original seats but one seat with the zips fits in easily but the other with Velcro cannot fold over the zips and it's not secure enough for bub. Help needed.

Hello. I didn't use bassinets with mine so have never had to fit the seats. Mine doesn't have any zips, perhaps they've changed a little - I purchased mine in January '12 so it's an older model now. Sorry I can't help, I'd suggest taking it back to the retailer where you purchased it & getting them to help you with it if that's possible. Good luck!

Thank you.
I found part of the zipper on the other seat that fitted together. It's all done.
Thanks again.

I'm not sure sorry as I don't have a steel craft infant carrier but I'm sure any of the baby retail stores that stock both those products would be able to answer that. Good luck.

Hi Jane. Unfortunately the steelcraft infant carrier is not compatible with the Mountain Buggy duet. Here is a link to the matrix on our website that shows which infant car seats are compatible with our buggy range - https://mountainbuggy.com/au/Products/car-seats/travel-systems/Adaptor-matrix#.VhLshvmqpHw

Which wheels would you recommend for the 2015 MB duet? Do the newer aerotech wheels have suspension??

2 answers
Rose

I wouldn't reccomend MB at all but if you do decide to go with them I would make sure they have wheels without air in them
I have recently purchased the citi mini duo its alittle bit wider then the MB but I don't have to worrie about the wheels deflating and it's much lighter

I've just fitted the aero techs and they are great, wish I did it a couple of years ago!

Does the twin carrycot (where the two babies go together in the one carrycot without a division) fit the mountain buggy duet pram or is it only the single carrycots that fit on it?

You would need to ask Mountain Buggy direct as I'm not sure. You can email them an enquiry through their Australian website and they will get back to you. I've used the website for a query and they got back to me the same day. Good luck.

Hi Kate,

Thank you for the question. Unfortunately that was just designed for or old model duo. For the duet, you would need two individuals which we do sell. Feel free to get in touch with us regarding any questions!

I have a question for those who have had to replace their tires. How frequently were you using the pram and what use did/do you have for it, ie, walking, jogging on grass or concrete etc.

We have had 3 punctures and 2 tires split apart in 9 months. We use the stroller daily- mainly on concrete paths or asphalt (bicycle tracks) because it just doesn't hold up 'off road'- on grass or dirt tracks. The first puncture occurred walking on a dirt track on day 3. We run and walk with it- up to 10kms per day. Of note, our single baby jogger city elite has never had a flat tire and we have been running and walking off road with this for > 2 years but unfortunately, the double version was just too big.

orbweavez
orbweavez

Thanks. I believe baby jogger use forever air tires so they are definitely different to the mountain buggy. Although the mountain buggy duet is one of the cheapest strollers on the market being only $600, it may end up costing a lot more in the near future. I wish someone could make another stroller with the same width!

Mountain buggy now sell air free tyres that you can purchase for the duet (about $180 for the set) but if you start buying lots of tyres it's worth thinking about. I love my air free tyres now!!!

Deb from Melbourneasked

Hoping to use the duet for a 1year old child sitting in the stroller on one side. This child has a medical condition and needs to always have portable suction equipment on hand. We'd like to use the portable carry cot alongside the child - to carry the equipment. Does this sound possible and does the carry cot need to be facing the opposite way to the child sitting in the stroller side. Would appreciate your advice. Deb from Melbourne

Hi, aww, poor bubba. I don't actually have carry cots for it so i'm sorry I cant be much help to you but it sounds like a good idea. I do have the 'joey' maybe even that might work for you. The sun visor can be put on over the joey which would protect the medical equipment perhaps. Maybe contact mountain buggy, i'm sure they'll be able to help you. Wishing your baby good health:)

BabyBabyBaby

A little late to answer but in case anyone is wondering yes the carry cot must be facing you (but hood is removable), and the weight limit is 9kg.

My hubby is 6'1 and pushes it easily (hasnt gone for a jog yet) and it's not even on the highest height setting. I'd say it would be fine.

Dag Stlhandske
Dag Stlhandske

I do not believe there is any height problem, since the handle is adjustable. However, given the problems I have had with tires (had to replace tires twice during a year despite normal use -no jogging with baby carriage) I wouldn't recommend this Mountain Buggy Duet, particularly not for someone who intends to walk or jog much with it.
