  • Ease of Use:

Pros:lightweight & maneuverable on a smooth surface

Cons:multiple problems with day-to-day use

The Bottom Line: Poor quality product - great customer service, though.


We bought the 2006 Bumbleride Flyer stroller at the end of 2006 with the intent to sell it after use, however, by now we are doubting that it will last our baby.
We liked the design and tested it in store to see how it handles. It seemed very easily maneuverable and stylish. Both of these qualities turned out to be true, however, we encountered a lot of problems with day-to-day use. Here is the list of problems we had with this stroller.

Its maneuverability does not work well on an uneven surface or a snowy road. This stroller does not trudge well through the snow. When all wheels are locked it's plain hard to just push the stroller forward even on a smooth asphalt surface.

We had to replace two stroller frames (good customer service, but poor quality product) until we got the handlebar to lock properly in both "baby faces world" and "baby faces mommy" positions. First frame was visibly crooked but to give the benefit of the doubt, possibly, it had been damaged during shipping. Second frame that Bumbleride customer service shipped to us had a problem with the lock bars – they did not lock the wheels. Once the frame got replaced by 2007 model, this got fixed. We are now on our third frame.

Wheels were initially so squeaky that the baby could not fall asleep during the ride. As it turned out the 2006 model had defective wheels, we got it replaced by 2007 model, which was better but still started squeaking after a while.

Canopy - does not hold in position you put it in, even light wind would push it backward & after less than 1 year - canopy's press snaps started coming loose from the frame.

Footrest does not hold in horizontal position - if baby presses his legs down the footrest comes down unexpectedly without any pressure to the footrest levers.

Backrest does not hold in vertical position - if baby leans backward hard enough the backrest comes down one notch.

Cup holder - does not easily turn over when handlebar is reversed. We just haven't been using it as it didn't seem safe.

Footmuff - zipper ripped from the material after less than 1 year of use.

Baggage compartment rubs against the wheels when they are not locked in.
