Bugaboo Bee Front Wheel Jitters

The Bugaboo Bee gets a lot of complaints about the front wheels flapping around causing a jittery ride. Their have been reports of the strollers wheels turning 90 degrees and stopping the stroller dead! There is a simple fix. Just unclip the front wheels and fit a rubber washer over the metal post the wheel clips on to. I have heard of rubber bands being used! All you are doing is adding a bit of extra friction making the front wheel turning action more predictable.

bugaboo bee 09 rear wheels


Yes the Bee+ wheels fit you need two 4 mm alan / hex keys to take off the wheel. You could just change the bearings they use a 608zz bearing any bearing or skate board shop would sell but you may need to add a few spacing washers as the Bugaboo bearing has an extended core.

I have a problem with my buggaboo Bee plus pram wheels.


Everyone seems to have problems with the bees small wheels. There's an ongoing forum on Bugaboos ask an owner app on Face Book. You're still under warranty so get a new set of wheels from Bugaboo Customer Service also ask for the front wheel washers to fix the swivel jitter problem.
If anyone finds this helpful please tick the box. If it's not let me know.

I'm trying to find the bearings on my bugaboo bee to clean them. where are they?


The front wheels are held on by capped star washers. Removing them will damage them so you need to find replacement washers before you try that. The back wheels can be removed but you need two hex keys. I just stick the wheels in hot soapy water, hose off and wipe dry. I than spray with silicon spray. If you are having the infamous Bugaboo Bee front wheel jitters try putting a rubber washer over the swivel pin.

on my bugaboo bee 2009 model the rear wheel makes a grinding noise gets worse if on a pavement that is slightly bummpy can anyone help please?


There has been a lot of complaints about the Bee's wheels on the internet including Bugaboo's own Face Book page! Your Bugaboo is ether in or only just out of the 2 year Warranty so contact Bugaboo customer service about getting a replacement set. The rear wheels are held by Hex nuts and are easy to remove with a small hex key any hardware shop can sell you. I use Silicon grease (as used to lubricate taps) when I repair stroller wheels. I think the Bee is a neat little Stroller and my wife has one but it really is only a Shopping Mall Stroller and those little wheels won't tolerate to much rough suburban footpaths.

does a kiddyboard bugaboo fit to bugaboo bee?


Hi,

In short, no. There are no buggy boards that are suitable for the Bee.

Hope this clarifies this for you.
