    We got this with our first child, the 2006 model and absolutely love it. She refused to go into a graco quattro tour and then wouldn’t get out this stroller. She loves, and so do we, that she face us or the world when we’re out and about. It is a tad heavy, but no worse than the gracos.

    We’re looking forward to the Indie Twin coming out later this year so our daughter and new baby can ride together!

  2. jeanette on September 13th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    I have to say this is the best stroller I have ever owned. It is soo easy to push and manuver. My 35 pound boy fits in it great and its a breeze to push him around in it. NOT Heavy at-all. I dont understand why some people say its heavy, when really its not. My preemie daughter LOVES this stroller too, as she loves to stare at the rich RED color and the black designs. (this is good for newborns;red,blck/white is what attracts there attention).And the canopy is soo long and provides the best shade for baby then any other stroller out-there.I pick this stroller over Maclaren any day. The price is resonable and you will notice that once you buy it.
    The only downside no cupholders or snack tray for baby or you, but u learn to manage.

    We were originalyl given the Graco travel system for our baby shower and I really liked the ease of the carseat with the stroller. It wasn’t until my baby was 7 months old when we started looking to upgrade. The Flyer is such an upgrade to the standard stroller. We purchased Koa which is this really rich brown color with a beautiful neat print on the inside. I think it works with a boy or a girl and my Anna really loves the print and shes always laying back and starring at it.
    The flyer also has a reversible handle which is a good added feature if you want to look at your baby or want to protect them from bright sunlight. Theres 2 triggers that you pull and then its reversed!
    It folds pretty small but it could be a bit smaller. I dont really mind because its not an umbrella style stroller but more of a full sized one with all of the features standard.
    We’re always in the mall and getting stopped constantly by people asking where I bought it. Love it love it!!

    I have the Flyer and I would say that it is generally a good stroller, but I know that there are better ones out there. What originally attracted me to this stroller was the reversing handlebar. It is nice to be able to have the option of having your baby face you or not. It provides a nice, smooth ride and has an adjustable backrest and five point harness. What I don’t like about the Flyer is that it is heavy, bulky when folded, and somewhat difficult to steer. The wheels developed this high-pitched squeak that wasn’t remedied until I contacted the manufacturer and got all new replacement wheels.

  5. Nancy and Gaby on December 28th, 2007 at 12:00 am

    After about 5 months looking for a stroller I picked the bumbleride in ruby. I saw it on the street with another mom, and fell in love. She caught me trying to look for the name and asked me if i would like to push it, that was really nice of her. When i did i new it was the stroller for me( and Gaby). This stroller is not only eye catching but also lightweight, great for me a non-driver. However it takes time to break in,the wheels at first would stray side ways and make an annoying sound, but corrected it self with help of some WD-40 oil. Seems a little bulky butover all a good stroller. I love it and the attention it gets!

  6. Bella's Mommy on January 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    While I was pregnant I obsessed over strollers doing hundreds of hours of research. I already have a Pliko P3 hand me down but really wanted a stroller with a reversible handle. I was torn between the Bugaboo, Venezia and the Bumbleride. Honestly if money was no object I would have probably just bought the Bugaboo but I was trying to be economical so I kept my focus more on the Bumbleride and Venezia. I decided to order the Bumbleride…I was able to get it in the Bloom fabric which I love for my baby girl along with the Ruby through a special. I Have used it a handful of times and the best feature of this stroller is the reversible handlebar which is the main reaason I purchased it. But the stroller is soooo hard to steer when the baby is facing you. The lock for the swivel wheels is in such an akward position that it’s so hard not to step on it while manuevering the stroller. Getting the stroller up and down the curb is such a pain. Also the stroller is LARGE…it has a wide turning radius. IMO the stroller is clumsy. The basket is also a waste of space…even if I put my small purse in there the basket rubs against the wheels making such an annoying noise. I don’t know how it maneuvers when the handlebar is facing out and I really don’t care to try since the main reason I purchased this storller is so my baby girl could face me. I was so excited to receive the stroller and put it together and now I’m so let down. I’m very dissapointed and if I didn’t throw the box out I would have returned the stroller. I plan on selling it and buying me a Bugaboo which is what I should have saved up for in the first place. The nicest thing about this stroller is the fabric that I have (Bloom). It’s different and I get alot of compliments on it but other than that I’m terribly dissapointed.

  7. Justin's Mommy on January 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I got a Graco Travel System and a Snug Ride for my shower. I really wanted a more stylish stroller so I considered the Bugaboo and the Bumbleride. Since the bumbleride just came out, there wasn’t much reviews on online. So considering the price I decided to go for the Stylish Bumbleride. My first use I was so disappointed. It was so hard to steer when baby is facing me. I’m a short 5’2″ and I kept hitting the back wheels as I walked. I just hated it. After a few weeks of use I went back to my big Graco travel system as the steering on that was much better and as soon as my son was old enough to ride on an umbrella stroller, I bought myself a Maclaren Triumph. Please take my advise, either shell out the money for a Bugaboo or invest in a Maclaren Umbrella Stroller. In the end you will use the Maclaren Stroller since its lighter.

  8. First time mom on January 23rd, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We have been using our 2007 Flyer for almost a year and have been very happy with it. We have not experienced most of the negatives mentioned in the other reviews.

    Although it looks large, it’s really only ~1 inch longer than the full size strollers my friends have and folds up to be about the same size (again, maybe ~1 inch longer). It took me a few times to get the hang of folding and unfolding it, but once I got it, it was really easy. I lock the wheels opposite eachother, and the whole thing folds as flat as can be, and the locking clip clips right into place. Unfolding is even easier – just undo the clip and pull up on the handlebar.

    It’s very easy to steer with the handle bar in either position as long as you have the wheels closest to you locked (which involves simply stepping down on the lock bar). When I’m in a crowded store, I unlock the back wheels to make it even easier to maneuver around displays and such (you can move the stroller directly sideways this way – very handy).

    The larger-than-standard wheels don’t get stuck in the cracks in our sidewalks like I’ve seen with other strollers in the neighborhood. My son loves it, and the footmuff has been extremely useful in our blistery Michigan winters. Also, the large canopy can be pulled all the way over him while we’re on our way from the car into a store, keeping the wind off of him.

    The basket underneath is big enough to stuff both of our winter coats, and my diaper bag hangs nicely on the handlebar.

    The only negatives I have: 1) the cup holder is not well designed – I skip it and hang my water bottle from a plastic link I put around the handle, and 2) when in the rear-facing orientation, sometimes the front wheels rub the basket, and if you take really long strides, your feet might hit the back locking bar, but that’s usually not a problem for my 6′-tall husband as long as he stands up straight.

    Note: Bumbleride made a lot of improvements from the 2006 to 2007 models. As a company, they seem very interested in improving their products based on feedback from users.

  9. Dee Mom on the go on February 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    What a great stroller.I did my research before i settled on the Bumbleride and it was worth every dime.My daughterloves strolling around the city in her ruby colored bumbleride.Every where i go people stop and stare.

  10. stylish new mom on March 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    ok i really really wanted the bugaboo but my boyfriend talked me out of it im glad he did i love this stroller… it is a bit bulky when folded but i love that it reclines in 4 positions… i notice that alot of users are complaining about the reverse position when strolling there is a bar at the bottom by the wheels that locks the wheels and makes it more easier to push…. its very lightweight my 82 yr old gma can even figure it out…. it collapses very easy and with others i looked for u would have to take the chasis off anf the reverse the bar this u do not which i love… the basket on the bottom is smaller then your average stroller but if u only plan on putting a few items down there its fine…. i would buy this again

  11. Mom and product designer on March 4th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    First, I am not associated with Bumbleride in any way except I own this stroller. I have had it for a year and a half. I was able to use it with my preemie with the addition of a store bought head roll. Here are the facts about this stroller. The reversible handle is a great feature–it is why I bought this stroller. However there are some drawbacks you have to accept along with this convenience. (1)The manueverability is great–as long as you go through the steps of unlocking the rear wheels and locking the front wheels every time you flip the handle. At first, this might seem a little cumbersome, but now I do it almost like a reflex. I tip my hat to the Bumbleride engineers who fought for the “semi-auto lock” feature–you do not have to align the wheels to get the rear lock to engage–just push the stroller and when the wheels straighten out, the lock engages (2) People complain about the “weak” or “flimsy” handle. It is niether. Because of the reversible stroller, the center of gravity changes greatly when you are in “child facing you” mode. It is pretty much impossible to “curb” (lift the front wheels up to go over a curb) the stroller in this mode. This is an inconvenience I will admit–but I consider it worth the trade-off for the reversible handle. (3) Mine has a cupholder. It annoyed me so much I took it off–every time I flipped the handle, I had to remove my drink and reorient the cupholder. I could have accepted that as a tradeoff for the feature I love so much, but the implementation of the cupholder attachment was poor–and it kept coming off when I didn’t want it to.Folding it is not difficult, but you do need to ensure the seat is fully reclined and the caster wheels are facing the right direction. This is not all that unusual–many strollers require steps like that in order to achieve the most compact fold.The restraint system needs to be tweaked. It is not something that I feel is a show stopper, but the crotch restraint is sewn too far forward. Bumbleride–take note–it makes a difference!My only other objective critique of this stroller is that the suspension is not that great. I have seen much smoother rides on much cheaper strollers.Bottom line, if the reversible handle is important to you (as it was and is to me), this is the stroller to buy. If you want the look for a similar price, consider Bumbleride’s 3-wheeler (smoother ride without some of the “Trade-offs” I mentioned before). I will say that if the reversible handle is not important to you, you do not have to spend over [$]to get a great looking stroller with a smooth ride.

  12. Kate coming soon! on March 6th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I absolutely love this stroller! I have done an incredible amount of research on strollers and finally decided to settle on this one. I couldn’t be more delighted with this stroller. First off, it is a head turner. Beautiful, quality fabric with very vivid colors (I have both the marine and ruby fabrics- love them!). I have not encountered any of the complaints people have made. It is extremely easy to steer (trust me, I have tried out many). There is no difference in the steering when the baby is rear facing and I love that the baby can face me or the world. This feature really sets the flyer apart from other strollers. I also love that it fully reclines and basically turns into a bassinette. It is extremely easy to fold and can stand upright when folded for easy SUV trunk storage. Unfold like a dream- just pops up into place! The basket is medium sized, and I am able to fit my huge, fully stuffed diaper bag easily in it. I don’t understand the complaints concerning the basket. Some say that when anything is set in it, the item drags against the wheels. This is not possible. The basket is angled and even when fully stuffed with heavy items, it is still about 2 inches away from the nearest wheel. Maybe this complaint is from an older model?This is a very durable stroller and comes with a one year manufacturer’s warranty should you encounter any problem. I cannot say enough wonderful things about this stroller. This is made well, has unique features and is absolutely beautiful. I am extremely pleased with this purchase. See for yourself-[…]Hope this has been helpful!

  13. First time mom on March 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is wonderful. Very user friendly. Great color! I have no complaints.

  14. New Mom! on May 5th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love it, it’s very comfortable and easy to fold. I love that the handle bar goes in the front or the back, also the handle moves up and down so it’s nice because my husband is taller and has the handle bar up and I am short so I have a totally different position for it. My son loves the inside design of the stroller especially when the sun hits it, he can’t take his eyes from it. Very comfy, love it and recomend it!

  15. Leslie on May 7th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I read so many reviews on this stroller. Some love it and some don’t. Some people say their feet hit the wheels when walking. Some say it’s hard to steer. My opinion is this: The reason I bought this was number one for the reversible handle. Loved that. Also, loved the “look” and color of it. I got the red. I know that is a BAD reason to pick a stroller but it had a lot to do with it so I was just hoping the rest would be good. I looked at the Kolcraft Contour but it was almost 40 pounds! Forget it! This is almost 20 pounds. Perfect. Love the padded bumper bar. My son loves holding onto it. Also, when I have him facing me (he’s 8 months) he loves holding onto the handlebar. Too cute. Love that the footrest adjusts so he’s tiny legs aren’t hanging off the end and not being supported. Love that the seatback reclines FULLY in case I need to change a diaper. I don’t think i’ll use it for a bassinet though it can be used as one. It is definitely on the “bigger” size but I happen to like that. I was never into those tiny little umbrella strollers. I like ROOM. The diaper bag is FINE. It’s accessible. The cup holder isn’t that great but there are so many things out there you can snap on, etc. The canopy is HUGE. Love that. When I go for walks, I switch the handle depending on where the sun is. It’s great. It’s definitely hard to lift the front wheels OVER a curb when baby is facing you but it’s “do” able. Folds up pretty easily. I looked at the Bumblride Indie and was frightened by the trifold. No thanks. Anyway, love my flyer so far! I was hesitant because all of my other strollers have had “snack” trays but I love the bumper bar so much I didn’t mind. Bumbleride also sells a new snack pouch but to put it on you have to REMOVE the bumper bar and put a whole new bumper on with attached snack pouch. Fisher price makes an $11 snack tray which I’m going to try for the heck of it just to have. Anyway, i’m glad I made the choice. It’s sharp, practical, and comfortable for baby. Hope you try it!

  16. Coastal Mom on June 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    We love this stroller! Our son is only 5 weeks old, and we’ve already gotten a ton of use out of it. I love that we can use this stroller in full recline and take him out to get some air, and that it will continue to grow with him, so that we don’t have to keep buying new strollers as he gets bigger. One of the big selling points for me was the 4 wheel steering and the switch push bar so that I can look at him while we walk. Living in Maine, we do a lot of “off-roading” to get where we’re going, and this stroller steers really well. It handles bumps in the pavement without a problem! It certainly is bigger than some other strollers, so it might take up more room in the car, but its worth it! We take trips to visit family on a ferry, and all we have to do is pack up the stroller. His luggage fits right in there with him, as well as his car seat (Graco SnugRide).
    We get comments all the time when we’re out about what a great looking stroller this is, and I couldn’t be happier with the way it works!

  17. Katya on June 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller from the minute I saw it. I have a 2008 model in a sea grass fabric.It looks very unique from the rest of the strollers. The best part of it that you can switch the handle and face your baby or your baby can face the world. The canopy is very big and can be adjusted to different position to protect your child from the sun. The 4-position recliner and the reclining foot rest is the other best part of the stroller. When it is fully reclined it can be used as a bassinet and it also comes with a head support for a newborn. It steers perfect any direction you are going the only draw back that you have to lock the wheels all the time but after a certain time it becomes a habit. Some people complained that when they push the stroller they hit the feet from the bar. I cannot understand how that is possible! The stroller is a little too big but for the size it is very light. I am so in love with this stroller, I would not even think of buying any other kind!

  18. Jessica Mommy of 2 Boys on July 1st, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Very Easy to put together and use.
    I love all the options! I love that you can face the baby or your baby can face out. Tehre have been a lot of bad ratings on this stroller. I have no complaints. I think alot of people just like to complain. this stroller has given me no trouble. My 14 month old loves it too. I have the Koa patteren. Very nice!

  19. Valery on July 25th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    This is maybe the only stroller on the market that reclines 180 degrees & drives both ways: Baby facing mom or out. It’s perfect for newborns & sleepovers. It’s pretty spacious & very light for its size. My daughter (5 months old now) loves it.
    I also have a Maxi Cosi car seat that sits on it.
    The wheels are the only problem I’ve had: They started squeaking only a month after we started using it, but they’re holding on.

  20. mom of 1 on August 12th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    The stroller is not so bad but after using it for a year and a half I found that there is a lot more that they can do to make it better. When I bought the stroller back in 2007 I recieved the 2008 color scheme. I loved it from the pictures and all the reviews. I was so excited when I first got it. putting it together was a cinch, but there are some draw backs. For instance when the baby faces you the basket would rub against the wheels that became annoying. You couldnt put anything in the basket. The wheels were very difficult to menuver when the baby faced you. It was easier and smoother ride when the baby faced the world. So that revirsable handle bar became almost pointless to have. and that was the only reason i bought the stroller. we love going for walks and spending evenings outside but with the stroller having these issues it became a hassle to always take it anywhere.

  21. Fashionista Mommy on August 28th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I got this stroller as a baby shower gift from my hubby. I have it in the bamboo green which is soo much better in person. The stroller is much lighter than any other that I have tried out, that was important for me. Also very easy to set up and fold. The only thing I am worried about is the actual seat depth when the baby gets older. It seemd to me there is not enough tushy room for a toddler. I hope I am wrong.

  22. Mom of 4th child on November 9th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I have a Bumbleride Flyer and I am very disappointed in it. This is my 4th and I have always had a Peg stroller with the other ones. I feel that the wheels hesitate to go backwards. The drink holder is a joke, if you hit the drink holder the wrong way, it turns upside down! Now your drink is all over the floor! My handles shake as I push. I have pulled out another stroller to use. This one sits in the back of my minivan!

  23. gagash on November 18th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    Baby is due in 2 months, but we already purchased it based on demo video, features, other reviews and price.
    Backrest folds flat-horizontal, so the stroller easily converts to a crib. Detachable sunshade cover, with a clear window to see the baby if it’s facing the world. Adjustable leg rest and foot mitten is great.
    Very easy to maneuver, doesn’t matter which way the handle is turned. Just make sure to have wheels closest to your feet locked and the farthest from your feet to be able to rotate 360 degrees. I can see why people have trouble maneuver it in the apartment, especially on the pergo and wood floors – wheels just don’t grip with the floor. But once you’re outside on the street – it’s a totally different story.
    Also, I’ve put a few books in the storage basket under the seat – and basket doesn’t bounce against the wheels.
    Good luck

  24. sanja on November 26th, 2008 at 12:00 am

    I love this stroller, but i had to sent it back for excange. it had a problem with weels, when i push it forward it goes on a side a bit and it is hard to keep it strait. That is the only problem i had with it. Overall i love this product.

  25. LUVBABY on January 5th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I LOVE IT ONLY THAT THE WHEEL S ARE HARD TO TURN LEFT TO RIGHT , ALSO ITS HEAVY… THE CUP HOLDER FITS OUR ADVENT BOTTLES ITS GREAT ADVICE ON HOW NOT TO GET YOUR HANDLE BAR DIRTY WHEN CLOSING IS TO FOLD DOWN ALL THE WAY AND IT WONT GET DIRTY, ALSO MY BABY 6 MONTHS LOVES IT SHE HANGS ON THE BAR ALL THE TIME AND JUMPS UP AND DOWN WE HAD THE BUGABOO BEFORE AND HATED IT THE BAR WAS ONLY GOOD FOR NUTTIN SHE COULDNT HANG OFF OF IT AND ALSO THIS STROLLER IS EASY TO CLOSE WE LOVE IT

  26. Mom on January 26th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    We had several strollers before, this is the worst I had to send it in for repair and several months later the frame broke again. I am about to buy new stroller to replace this.

  27. Bas' mom on April 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The steering is horrible- you never know where you’re going to end up… in a wall, off the curb or into someone’s table at a restaurant.

    I am so disappointed with this product- and for the price, my goodness! Its lovely to look at but that’s it. It does not function well- we’ve taken to using our snap-n-go instead.

    Plus, plastic wheels for such an expensive stroller????

    Also what I find really annoying is when attempting to go over a curb, you instinctively put your foot on the nearest bar between the wheels to hoist the front of the stroller up and they’ve decided to place the wheel lock there… it’s a very clumsy ordeal trying to go over a simple curb or into a store and rather embarrassing!

  28. Stylish auntie on April 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    It was a present that I bought for my niece. I have no experiences of buying stroller before. I found the demonstration video online was really helpful. It gave me a better idea of what this stroller can do.

  29. Busy New York Mom on May 14th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I saw this product on line and read all the reviews and decided to get it for my newborn. My Husband and I love it. We love the feature that allows you to move the handle bar so you can look at the baby when you take her for a walk. As a new mom I always want to look my baby to make sure all is well and I love the fact I can continue to do that when we took our walks. Also I love the fact that it can be used as both a pram and your traditional stoller. I love how easy it can close and open and that storage is simply. The only down side I would say is that now that summer is here, I wish it had a sun visor to keep the sun out of her face. This is certainly worth the money.

  30. MumOfTwoSoon on June 7th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    My girl friend has the Flyer and I got it too, for my unborn son. I drove hers with her baby in it and I LOVED IT, though weird with a belly =) I set mine up, I couldn’t get my hands off of it, and my baby isn’t born yet!!

    I love how the wheels lock with one step, so easy to change the handle bar from side to side, and for me really important, is that the seat reclines all the way flat, for a newborn. It is very compact, decent basket storage, and love the steering, so light. I read the other comments and the ‘flaws’ of the stroller are just ridiculous… the stroller is lightweight, so yea it will go everywhere if you dont know how to steer! Oil up the wheels if they lock on you… everything will have a flaw.. the stroller isn’t made of gold, so it’s not quite perfect, but it’s better than the rest. Sometimes you have to make a sacrifice. I had the Graco travel system for my daughter 5 years ago and that one squeeked after one time it rained. It was bulky and heavy, good if you have an elevator, but the Flyer, is so easy, and so light, if I can carry it at 37 weeks pregnant, it’s no problem after wards. It is expensive, but what’s not these days.. you gotta invest sometimes, and specially for your child, whatever is safest!! I think it’s worth the money, because you can use it for the next 4 years! I LOVE IT!

  31. momma2be? on June 8th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    I have the 2006flyer model, and after hubby put it together we took it for a “test” spin around our appartment building. The unit does woble if the rear long sliver bar is not locked down.(the set nearest your feet when pushing). Overall I think this stroller is a welcomed splash in comparison to all the greco strollers. Hopefuly our baby to be will get lots of good use from this expensive item. If i’m not satisfied I think i will be buying a stroller from greco. My hubby selected the stroller for me because of it’s vibrant color. I walk alot and he’s affraid of someone not seeing me or the baby.

  32. purchaser on June 13th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    The fram is made with cheap quality aluminum. On the side, there’s just to much screws, nuts and bolts….not a clean look.
    The product is not as nice as I’d thought it was after receiving it.
    It’s is heavy, big, and hard to maneuver. When I was pushing my son around downtown San Francisco, I had a hard time getting through crowds. When I came upon the corners with just a little bump, I had to step on the stroller in front to lift the other end of the stroller high enough to get onto the sidewalk, otherwise it won’t go… it is scary especially when the light is turning red.
    The five strap harness is a rip off!! the shoulder strap buckle is ugly, when you see it up close.
    OMG… and the basket is way too small to hold anything. Normally, I can hang my diaper bag on the handles but this doesn’t allow and so my diaper bag takes up all the space in the basket.

  33. Teresa on June 30th, 2009 at 12:00 am

    This stroller is great. It is lightweight and easy to fold. It has a big canopy and I love the fact that you can move the handlebar so that you can look at the baby as you stroll. Also, I like how it reclines all the way down. My son has fallen asleep so many times in his stroller and he is always comfortable! As for the wheels and steering, I figured out that you always have to push down the bar closest to you and raise the other bar that is on the side farthest away in order for the stroller to steer properly!

    The look of this stroller is great. It allows the baby 4 different positions. The footrest is great for a growing baby.

    Con: the wheels are very tricky. You have to figure out the trick that the wheels have in order for it to run smoothly. The stroller is a bit heavy. I would have bought the bugaboo stroller.

    The color of this stroller draws a great deal of attention and compliments. I love the fact that the handle on the stroller reverses so that you can either push with child facing you or away from you. The seat fully reclines which is great for naps on the go. Although this is not a travel system it comes with a convertible bar that allows compatible carseats to be used along with stroller. I actually went to the Bumbleride website for a list of the compatible seats. There are only a few cons that I have with this stroller…they would be the 4 way wheels..they really take some getting used to, the size of the basket below, I wish that it was larger and there is no cupholder (although I think that you can order one from the bumbleride) website All things considered I really like this stroller, and my daughter just turned 1 and we are still getting plenty of use out of this stroller.

    I just recently purchased the 2008 flyer and absolutely love it. When you take it out of the box you need to put the wheels on and attach the canopy, cup holder and bumper bar. I love the reversible handle. In either mode the stroller turns beautifully even with our 3 yr old daughter in it. You just have to remember to lock the wheels from whichever side you’re pushing the stroller. The canopy is absolutely huge and will cover a large child. I placed a diaper bag in the basket and had no problems with the basket touching the wheels. There is a large pocket on the footmuff and a large pocket on the back of the canopy. We had a little trouble getting the cupholder on, but it works fine. The flyer reminds me of an expensive high end stroller without the high end price.

    For the price and features (light, reversible handle), this is a great stroller. If you don’t want to spend the money on a Bugaboo, this is a good alternative. However it does take some practice steering on Manhattan streets and curbs.

    Pros:
    1) Easy to flip handle to face baby in or out. You can alternate in seconds, but must always remember to lock the wheels closet to you and unlock the opposite ones.
    2) Large canopy for sun coverage. However the canopy is not UV treated. Would have paid a little more for such feature.
    3) Easy to collapse. However when taking onto the bus or train, the handle gets dirty as its pointing down on the ground especially when its raining.

    Cons
    1) Not very easy to steer when facing baby
    2) Cup holder tends to flip over
    3) Company does not sell additional accessories such as mosquito net, sunshade, etc. You have to purchase via third party.
