    I have a similar problem with finding Duo Cruiser parts - or lack thereof. They stopped making this model, and a phone call to InStep revealed that they no longer stock parts for this trailer. I need one of the 16" plastic wheels, as mine is warped and will no longer hold a tyre on it.

    Same here, I am looking for a replacement wheel as well. The rim part of the tire is bent and I am having problems locating a replacement wheel. I have been told by many bike shops it cannot be fixed and I will need to contact Instep. That was an unsuccessful call. Seems like this is a common problem!!

    I also need a wheel. Instep was dismissive in helping me. I have to think there is one out there somewhere.

I should go to he Pram Shop where you bought it from, if it has closed down go to a Mothercare Shop or similar Pram Shop. They will be able to get you the information you need.

SOURCE: I got my duo cruiser from my brother,and I dont

bigbrad70 - I too had the very same problem. If your Duo cruiser has the spring hitch (a short 1.5 to 2 inch long spring mounted horizontaly in the frame just behind where it connets to the bike) then this is an easy fix. There are three parts needed. First looks something like a figure 8 with one large and one small hole. The second is a latch pin that goes through the first. The third is a washer with some tabs on one side. If you have these things then you have all the parts if not call the InStep customer service line
(800) 242-6110
Monday - Friday, 8am to 5pm (Central Standard Time)

And ask for the SA074 coupler.

If you do not have the spring hitch I think they have adifferent coupler but am not sure as mine has the spring hitch. As for the istallation just go to the InStep website and look up the owners manual for any of the older double bike trailers.

Hope this helps!

P.s. The coupler is back ordered until approximately June 28 but can be pre ordered (I am currently waiting for mine!)

You can probably just get a standard 16 inch replacement inner tube or outer tire from any bike shop, both of which are usually pretty reasonably priced.

However, if you want the exact factory replacement parts then you can order them from the following link:

When in 'swivel' mode front wheel turns wildly making it difficult to control and even stops the buggy when the wheel 'stick' at right angles to the buggy


In normal use, the front wheel needs to swivel freely - then this stroller's drive is easy and manageable with one hand (we know from extensive use with 2 kids and shopping on board).

The front wheel normally can not collide with the car. If the wheel assembly / lock is not correctly inserted, it can lock / unlock uncontrolled: try to disengage and mount the front wheel unit again.

Unsufficient tire pressure can also detoriate the drive.

I have a melted front wheel and need a new one. They are saying it's discontinued and don't have any spare parts. Any ideas or places to look. Have spent over$700 on this stroller


find a shop in your area or on line that sells wheels and castors
you will need the sample wheel ( from the other side) to match but if you can't get a match consider replacing both wheels with alternatives
al you need is the axle size and width of the hub section and wheel diameter

Problem with front wheel of jane 3-wheeler stroller


The front wheel swivel has become a problem with some strollers that are a little longer than the standard three wheel stroller. This has been happening with the new Phil & Ted's Vibe as well.

This can be approached in a few different ways. The easiest is to take the wheel off completely and properly lube the connection pieces. You can use a standard axle grease, or WD40 if you have some in your home. When the tire is properly lubed, re-attach it. This should take care of the problem.

If that does not work, the wheel's inner tube might be/have been over-inflated. When this occurrs, a part of the tube bubbles and causes the wheel to wobble while being pushed. Deflate the tire slightly and see if this helps. If the tube has been over-inflated for some time, it may be necessairy to completely replace the tube - you can do this at most bike shops that sell replacement tubes.

If this does not stop the tire from wobbling, please feel free to contact us anytime.

Simo 417 Stroller - wobbly wheels


Sounds like the plastic liners that hold the wheel either on or together have worn out.  They make hundreds of different style wheels.  You can try going to any baby supply store that has replacement wheels that have the "same" mounting configuration and see if you can get new ones.  You might need to replace all the wheels and they may look different but at least you'll almost have a new stroller that doesn't wobble.

Stroller pulls to the right.


The following is from the instruction manual for the Expedition LX. It should be very similar to the Expedition LE.

"Stroller pulls to one side:1. The stroller is sensitive to the air pressure in the tires. If the rear tires do not have equal pressure, the stroller will feel like it is pulling to the side with the tire with the lower tire pressure. Check that the rear tires have the same pressure. Add air pressure to a maximum of 25 pounds using a bicycle style hand air pump.2. The alignment of the front wheel of the stroller can also cause the stroller to pull to one side. The stroller is designed so that the front wheel can be adjusted to correct for any alignment problem. Page 3 of the instructions
shows an expanded view of the front fork assembly. To align the front wheel, first loosen the wheel via the quick release handle as in step 2 of the instructions. Grab the front wheel directly in front of the stroller and push the wheel in the opposite direction of the pulling problem. You will notice that the axle will move within the slot on the fork. Move the wheel to the side a small amount. Retighten the quick release handle. Give the empty stroller a push across an empty smooth surface (let go of the handle) and note if the stroller now runs straight. Re-adjust the axle a small amount at a time until the stroller runs straight. Please note that a very minute
movement of the axle will affect the tracking of the stroller. Once you have aligned the front wheel, you can mark the holding plate position with a marking pen if you detach the front wheel on a regular basis. Please note that the hole in the fork is designed to allow the stroller to be adjusted to pull to the right, go straight, or pull to the left. If you continue to have difficulty with tracking, please call our customer service department at (800) 328-7363 for assistance."
