Good value pram
We have really enjoyed most of our experience with the bumbleride. The snap down style has been great, it's a little heavy but manageable. We have had problems with plastic covers for the foot rest adjustment button falling off. If these are lost then you are unable to use them. We have had them fall off a number of times and needed to carry a tooth pick with us, thankfully the cover has always shown up again.
We purchased the bassinet which is quite narrow as most doubles are but we still got plenty of use for our 8lb baby, around 3-4 months ...
Amazing all rounder
With all prams there will be pros and cons but I have really loved owning my indie twin. It served its purpose and outshined my previous double pram. SURPRISINGLY... it fits through every door!!! I love this. It also loves to FWD like my CX9, it will take any terrain. Manoeuvres very easily and feels actually quite light even though it is not!
It washes very well, once you get the hang of taking it apart... everything can be washed!
It has loads of storage aswell. I did the whole tandem thing with a previous pram and if had nothing. This has been a dream! It’s sad to part with it but I need to downsize.
We have 8 month old twins and this pram has been fantastic from day one. We started with Mico capsules connected using travel adaptors, then put the seats on when they out grew the capsules. My favourite feature is how easy it is to maneuver, you can easily turn on the spot. Brilliant!! I love the extra long canopy to keep out prying eyes at shops :) I would highly recommend it to other twin mums. We also have the bumbleride indie single from our first kid, we love it also.
Close to perfect
I love this pram, and really wish I had it from the birth of my twins rather than from 14months old. It would be invaluable for new borns with the bassinet style seats.
It steers beautifully, canopies are AMAZING, seats comfortable with plenty of growing room.
My only gripe is that it’s advertised as having an auto locking system.... either mine doesn’t work properly or it’s not actually what they advertise it as. I still have to apply a fair bit of pressure to the frame of my pram to get the locking mechanism to lock. Which, after putting ...

Love this pram!! Wish I'd known about it when #2 was born
I originally bought a BJ City Select double but because I kept my newborn in the top\back & toddler at the bottom\front, I had a lot of trouble steering and moving the pram. I had a c-section so this did not help.
Anyway, fast forward 6 months later, we moved to Canada and I bought the Bumbleride Indie Twin for going for walks in the snow! Turns almost on a dime and fits through every doorway. My toddler had a tendency to run off so this pram was ideal for keeping both kids contained when i needed them to be (e.g. when walking from a giant c...
After owning three different brand prams we began to have a good understanding of how prams performed. After having twins we where again in the market for a new pram.
The Bumbleride indie twin is by far the best pram I have owned. ( The other prams I have owned have been well known brands and not cheap)
The quality of the build with welded alaminium and machined parts is just great.
The manovourabilty of this pram is second to none. This pram is easily guided with one hand and has an easily accessible foot controlled rear wheel lock.
I've been using my Indie Twin since my son was born 3 weeks ago and I'm already in love with it!
It's so easy to maneuver and very smooth when going over bumps while walking outside. I have my 14kg toddler in one side and 4kg baby on the other and there's no pull or issues with the big weight difference. I have no doubt when we are able to run with both kids it will be a smooth ride!
I found the pram easy to fold/unfold and lift while heavily pregnant so it will be even easier when I'm able to lift things I'm sure! For a double pram I found ...

Great control and so easy to manoeuvre. It's easy to fold and unfold and quality is really good. The only thing I don't like is the size it is folded and the weight, but like most prams in the same category it's what you get with a double side by side pram! Extra kudos to the recycled materials used for the hood canopies!
Best pram purchase. Very happy.
I originally bought a BJ City Select with the view of having more than 1 baby and whilst that was good for the short term with one child, as soon as we needed to use both seats things became difficult. The effort taken when walking around my suburb and simply crossing pram ramps and hilly streets was just crazy. I even had an old lady (had to be in her 80's) save our pram from tipping on a slightly uneven path one day.
Fast forward to purchasing the Bumbleride Indi Twin and those same walks that were stressful and difficult to manoeuvre bec...ame a breeze. No more special approaches and extra effort to get up and down pram ramps, it was straight across the street with no drama. The sun shade is unbelievably good. Brilliant really and something I'd chased for a long time. I have a very very tall 1.5yr old and an average sized 3.5yr old and they both are very comfortable and sleep well in the pram. It's fold is great and fits in our Outback no drama and even into my mums lancer hatch boot. It packs down really well in pieces and is super easy to put back together. The one movement open is brilliant. There is plenty of storage and I have even gone without a nappy bag as there is ample room to put nappies/wipes/clothes/snacks/water and your keys/purse/phone in the compartments provided.
Brought the new bumbleride indie twin as I have a 1 year old and another bub due in June. I must say this pram is absolutely amazing. I tested my 4 year old it it with my 1 year old and it moves like a dream. I love the air tyres for all terrain. Fits perfectly folded in our audi a4. Might be lil heavy for some, No issues in not fitting in door ways. I felt this gave me more room then the Cj gt double and felt better to push and turn.
I bought the 2015 version for my just 2 year old and newborn in addition to an inline double. The Bumbleride is easier to push and steer than the tandem. The kids are comfortable and I can see both of them through the mesh sections in the tops of the (huge) canopies. The pram feels evenly weighted despite the weight difference between my kids. It truly is an all-terrain pram and is wonderful for walks which I why I purchased it. It fits through our front door. The only negatives, which I believe have been addressed with the 2016 version, are that the fold isn't overly compact and you have to manually lock the pram. These issues don't really bother me though. I love this pram and the aqua colour is beautiful!
Fantastic walking pram!
I purchased my Bumbleride indie twin after doing lots of research on double prams that were suitable for all terrains & lots of walking outdoors! I stumbled across the Bumbleride indie twin & was so intrigued as the list of features sounded perfect for me!
I needed a pram with a seat big enough to seat my very tall 2 yr old, plus comfy enough for my newborn. There's only one retailer in Australia near me (well an hours drive!) but I made the hike out there with both kids to try it out, it was love at first try!
We purchased this on the ...spot, I've been using it for daily walks & I have been extremely happy with it! Good sized hoods Generous basket Smooth ride Great easy to clean fabric I also love the little zip pockets on the back of each seat! Great little pocket for each child's small goods!
The best twin pram ever!
Love it! It goes flat, so it is great also for newborn twins. It is easy to maneuver. Twin pram which you can easily push on the grass with one hand, and drink coffee with the other :o). It is solid construction so it holds even when your children are bigger and heavy. It folds easily but once folded it is a bit bulky so you need decent car space. As much as it sounds like minus, once you do your research, you realise, that all twin prams are bulky. Maybe not the umbrella strollers but these are nightmare to push. It also provides great shade and plenty of space even for toddlers. Basket is huge and it fits trough the standard door (not once you add the drink holders). Very comfy and great looking pram.
This was my third double for my two boys 18 months apart! Absolutely love it easy to push amazing basket too. Fits my tall toddler with plenty of room and adjustable footrest is great. I have had to pump wheels a lot but easy to do and makes big difference to push. I havent haf any issues with getting through doors except when cup holder on.
great for 2 - worth it!
I had a baby jogger city select and changed for the bumbleride indie twin for my 2 year old and 2 month old. For the most part I love it. Its comfy, great colours, good size seats, large basket. Has great features like adjustable footrests which are fantastic for newborns and young bubs and adjustable handle. Also get lots of extras when you buy the pram saving extra money for some accessories. There are a few things I dont like including how large and bulky it is folded. I have a ford fairmont and have to take the front wheels off for it to f...it in the boot so a major inconvenience. Also the cup holder is useless as it makes the pram way too wide and the wheels have to be pumped up which is also an inconvience as ive had it less than a month and had to pump the tyres already but hopefully won't have to for a while! Only positive about the tyres is they're all terrain. Overall I love the pram and so do both my boys. big all terrain tyres,comfy, great colours, good size seats, large basket, adjustable footrests, adjustable handle, great extras bulky when folded pump up tyres, useless cup holder.
A premium stroller!
With the strong Australian dollar, this premium USA stroller makes a worthwhile consideration.
Purchased from an Ebay USA seller, after extensive researching for a twin side-by-side stroller which can conquer most terrain if need be, for our newborn twins when old enough to venture outdoors. This is a great stroller for local shops and shopping centres which fits easily through standard doors, minus the cup holder.
Relatively light-weight when compared to the Mountain Buggy Duet and the like, though heavier to other lighter less compact s...troller with less accessories. Will fit through standard doors without cup holder, unique looking, adjustable foot rests, adjustable handle, nice range of colours and limited edition models, good looking/well designed, large basket and well made quality fabrics and stroller build. Won't fit through standard doors with cup holder, on the large side, however it is comparable to strollers of this range.
Could not live without it - Was my saving grace!!!
Awesome for two pram riders, Love Love Love the fact that you can use the carrycot and carseat adapter without having to remove the entire seat fabrics. Definitely money well spent. Loved every moment of using it and wouldn't hesitate to recommend it to anyone or even buy another one should I have the need for a double again.
I chose this particular pram as I have taller children and found a lot of prams weren't able to accommodate my tall 2yr old - this one did and there was room to grow!!!
The hood coverage is fantastic, the seats have in...
The best double pram
I love this pram and could not find one in Australia that came close to it. This is such an easy to push pram with a toddler and newborn and caters for both really well. Mine came with a rain cover, drink holder, newborn head supports and bumper/ belly bars. They come in beautiful range of colours and have great storage pockets a huge basket underneath plus a large hood, extendable handle (my 6ft7" husband pushes it with ease)adjustable leg rest. It also looks very comfortable to ride in. I cant believe how easily it fits through a standard doo...r way (very deceiving).It can take newborn twins or even toddler and newborn or two toddlers.I cant recommend this highly enough,everything has been considered when Bumbleride made the Indie Twin. Ease of use, practical large basket, accommodating, comfortable and so many more on the heavy side - but it does compare with others of this quality
Questions & Answers
Hi there we have a bumbleride Indi and it seems that the 2 pull latches on the side have locked up and it now won’t fold down at all.
Has anyone else had the problem or know how how to trouble shoot it???
Unfortunately it is out of warranty so a bit stuck with this one.
We have the single indi version not double.
Hi Daniel. I am not sure how old your Indie is but it has a 3 year warranty on the frame. If you are within this period please fill in this form https://www.danishbydesign.com.au/product-issue-form/ and we will be happy to assist
I am worried about punctures on the air filled tyres as we don’t have footpaths where I live. We have foam tires on our current pram and constantly get little sharp pebbles stuck in them, which isn’t a problem as they don’t puncture anything. Has anyone had dramas with puncturing the tyres? An occasional pump up doesn’t bother me but am worried if they are like bike tyres and the inner tube gets punctured, they then need to be replaced.
Hi Emma. Small stones will not puncture your tyres but if you run across glass or nails there is a risk of it happening. If so, you can repair the tube like on a bike and it will not need replacing. Hope this helps
Can you substitute one of the seats for the bassinet? In the pictures I can only find either 2 seats or 2 bassinets, but not the 1 each combination. I am looking for a double pram that can seat my toddler and would like the bassinet for my newborn.
Hi, I didn't buy the bassinet but used two baby mico baby capsules which worked fine. I reckon you could do the bassinet and seat configuration. The seats are quite separate to one another. Try the bumbleride Australia customer service email on their website. Tina.
I used one seat and one bassinet. It worked well but you do need to remove the bassinet to fold, that didn't bother us as were used to using a bugaboo. Once you have both seats on it snaps down in one piece.
Yes, you can have one bassinet and one seat on the Indie Twin. Or a capsule and a seat. If you want to keep it super simple, lay the seat flat and with the hood over and the foot rest folded up you have created a bassinet style space for your newborn (it is forward facing whereas the bassinet will be rear facing)
