Ease of Use:
Pros:Roomy, Looks Good, Cheaper alternative to Bugaboo
Cons:Clumsy over bumps, access to basket issues
The Bottom Line: Not a bad choice for those who don't do a lot of shopping.
I bought this BumbleRide Flyer about three years ago and it is still working just as good as the day I got it and I use this stroller often.
I paid approximately $275 for this at BuyBuyBaby.
What I like about this stroller is the ability to flip it or convert it from one type of a stroller to another. This stroller easily converts from a pram style rear facing stroller to a sit up forward facing stroller with just a few minor adjustments that take only seconds.
I love the look of this stroller. It is similar in style and function to the more expensive bugaboo but it is not nearly as nice of a ride. The fabric comes off for easy washing which is nice should you need to wash it. The only part that cannot be washed is the canopy because it cannot be removed from the frame.
I purchased a replacement fabric for my stroller on line directly through BumbleRide for $75 but it is still new in the box. I have never needed it.
The wheels on this stroller are bigger than your average stroller which is nice for a smoother ride. However, it does get bumpy if you hit a bump because the wheels seem to get stuck and turn when I hit a bump. Both the front wheels and the rear wheels do lock in position but for some reason this still doesn't help the situation.
I thought this stroller would be great going over grass but it is horrible. My girlfriend down the block with a bugaboo has no issues on the grass and either does my friend with a simple Maclaren stroller so I'm pretty disappointed with its performance.
I do love that this stroller has a little window in the canopy so that you can watch your baby in the stroller.
This stroller does some with a little clip on cup thing for a parents beverage but it easily pops off when you collapse the stroller and put it into the car.
This stroller is wide so if you have a big baby, you will get a lot of use out of this stroller that you may not get with some other strollers.
Keep in mind, this is a full sized stroller, this is not a compact stroller so when it folds up, it is still big. It does fold up nicer than a lot of other strollers that I have tried out.
The seat is fully reclineable which is great for sleeping babies or even emergency diaper changes when out.
The canopy is really big which is wonderful for privacy should your baby need it.
The basket on the bottom of this stroller is a decent size but what gets in the way is this little bar on the back of the stroller. You should be able to go grocery shopping with this stroller but unfortunately, this little bar does get in the way of stuff most large grocery items in the basket and needs some adjustment.
I purchased some extra large caribeaner clips for this stroller so that I can do some general shopping with this stroller. The handle bar is wide and there is no way to hook a shopping bag onto this stroller without a clip you purchase on your own.
The handle on this BumbleRide Flyer stroller is adjustable which is great for me and my husband. He's over six feet tall and I'm just over five feet tall.
I was very happy that this stroller included an infant car seat bar. It makes transporting a sleeping baby from the car to the stroller a cinch!
