Question about Jane Powertwin Azulon Stroller

1 Answer

Rear foot brake

The rear foot brake bar has plastic casings on either side which hold a metal pin which, when the brake is engaged, then slots into the grooves of the wheels. One of these plastic casings has split which has made the brake unreliable. I'd be grateful if anyone knows of a (UK based) solution.

I have a Baby Jogger City Select (manufactured 10/2010) and have an issue with the handbrake. When you pull the lever on the handle bar the cable, which runs to the rear axis, pulls out a little metal bar...


I did not have to disassemble at all. Thanks to your comments. I just took off the wheel with the stuck pin; gripped the pin with large pliers and a tight grip; pulled slightly outward while turning pin. Did this a couple times and the pin shot back into place!

Hi the handle bar rite side dosnt click into place?


How to fix a Bugaboo Handle

If you are not a handyperson type, take these instructions to you local Bicycle Mechanic or Small engineering shop.

The bugaboo handle fault is caused by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods. Why bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me!

1/. Remove the domed star lock washer. This is the hardest part of the job. Most people try to leaver this off in the hope of re using. First problem with this is you will mark or damage the surrounding plastic second is star locks are not intended for reuse and will never hold as well as when first used, so best find a new replacement. A hardware store should be able to source some for you. Quickest way to remove a dome washer is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to prize off.
Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so your moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side.

2/. The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. The disk has two plastic pins that move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub into and out of the outer hub. You need to ether repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a replacement metal screw you can fit / glue in. Or (my preferred choice) have a new metal disk fabricated that will last a lifetime.

3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all is well fit the new star dome on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern.

4/. Repeat operation on the other side. Note the disks are mirror images of each other and are not interchangeable. Bugaboo calls the side with the brake lever “LEFT” the disk will have a serial number that ends with “L”. I have had metal disks laser cut and stainless steel pins fitted. Cost of a disk with a new star dome washer is $75 New Zealand. If you like one or a set, you can contact me macnutz@xnet.co.nz

The handlebar is stuck on my bugaboo


How to fix a Bugaboo Handle Locking Mechanism
If you are not the handyperson type, take these instructions to you local bicycle mechanic or small engineering shop.
The cause of the Bugaboo handle fault is due to two small plastic pins shearing off a plastic disk inside the plastic hub. This disk activates two metal locking rods. Why Bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me. The disk's two plastic pins move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub engaging and disengaging the outer hub. You need to either repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a metal screw you can fit / glue in or replace with a new metal disk fabricated to last a lifetime.
The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates the plastic disk that moves the lock pins. Before replacing the disk, check the hubs for wear. If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position. Both the Frog and Cameleon use the same plastic hubs so you can find an old frame and salvage replacement hubs. A single aluminum rivet holds them and this is easily drilled out.
1/ Remove the domed star lock. This is the hardest part of the job and most people try to lever this off in the hope of reusing. The first problem is you mark or damage the surrounding plastic, the second is the star lock isn't intended to be reused and will not hold as well. It is best to find a new replacement - normally sourced from a hardware store on indent.
The quickest way to remove a domed star lock is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to gently prise up one side high enough so you can fit a second screwdriver underneath without marking the plastic. Note. The walls of the aluminum shaft the hub rotates on are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the domed star lock and not the shaft. Use the first screwdriver to support the second screwdriver as per photo.
Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so the moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side. The hub and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable. The side with the brake lever is left; the Bugaboo parts will have an "L" after their serial numbers.
2/ Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. If the wire rods seem to be out of position, loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smoother action) If all is working well fit the new star dome on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern. Repeat operation on the other side.
I have available kits with (left & right) laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins and two new star dome locks. Cost is $160 New Zealand plus shipping. If you would like a set, my contact email address is below.

I have a jane powertwin pro and the rear bar that hangs above the clogs for the rear brake constantly rubs on the cogs making a grinding noise with or without kids in it. Please help


Hi,

This sounds like either your brake bar is loose or has been bent out of shape. Look at the silver metal pins that click into the black cogs (on the inside of the back wheels), if these are not horizontal, then your brake bar has probably suffered some stress, causing the bar to bend and the pins to touch the cogs.
If the metal pins are totally horizontal, then your brake bar is just probably loose and needs removing and re-rivetting on tighter.

Either way, I would suggest that you contact (if in the UK) this link:

www.johnstonprams.co.uk

who will be able to assist with the repair. You can also take this back to the retailer and arrange a repair through them.

I hope this helps.

Jane powertwin splayed back wheels-rear brake plastic bracket


Hi,

This sounds like some kind of excessive weight on the handle bar or a buggy board has been used, either that or too much pressure has been applied to the break bar. On the break bar, this should have a natural curve to it, if this looks wonky, then this is probably the reason. If this is the case, then the bar will have to be drilled off, straightened and re-rivetted back on.
I would suggest that you contact either your retailer for repairs advice, or www.johnstonprams,co.uk please note that this does sound like you will have to pay for it to be repaired.

I hope this helps.

I have the older style Jane Powertin with the spoke wheels. The brake bar is hitting off the plastic ring on the inner side of the wheel (that the brake bar fits into when the brake is on)  so when I...


Hi,

This sounds like the brake bar (at some point) has had a little too much pressure applied to it. The brake bar itself has a natural curve and when too much pressure is applied, the curve becomes distorted, therefore making the silver metal pins sit at an odd angle (instead of being horizontal) this in-turn makes the pins contact the cogs on the inside of the back wheels, hence the clicking noise.
The remedy for this is get the brake bar drilled out (is attached via rivets, so this is the only way) then the bar can be straightened and re-rivetted on. The best option to get advice on this is to contact www.johnstonprams.co.uk or www.jane.es for repair agents.

I hope this helps.

Are you talking about the seat fabric and putting it onto the frame?

Remove the handle bar and the metal pole from the seat frame legs to relaxe frame, put seat fabric ontop top of seat frame and fit. place one strap onto the pins at side with holes then turn seat frame onto side. use foot and weight to bring the other strap over the pins and slot into holes fasten buckle undernethe and the velco tabs.

How do you close the milano


Standing behind the stroller when you look down towards the basket, look along the frame, just above the rear "step" on the right side you will see a plastic lever that usually has the number one on it, step on it. On the other side you will see an identical lever that usually has a number 2 on it, step on it, while holding it down with your foot, pull up slightly on the handle bar then push down and back to you at the same time. The stroller will fold and you lock it in place by taking the oblong shaped rings attached to the handle bar and hooking them over the "pegs" on the side of the stroller near the bumper bar.

How to take off a tire on a Jeep Liberty Ubran Terrain Stroller


If you have the model with the inflatable bike tire as a wheel, then there should be a metal locking pin wrapped around the plastic top of the wheel, you should be able to see the end of the pin sticking out (about a half inch to an inch) right below the plastic part that is at the end of the wheel. Use a pair of needle nose pliers and pull that metal pin strait off, it is held on with a pinch grip, so you don't need to twist (that could bend your pin). After the metal pin comes off, you can just take the wheel off. Then to put it back on just place the wheel back on the metal wheel bar and replace the locking pin by just pushing it on, no pliers needed for this part.
