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.

I have a jane slalom pro my front wheel is driving me mad it is wobbling so much that my pram will not move forward sometimes, any help would be appreciated.


We have this problem with our powertwin when my toddler is not riding in the front and I only have the baby in the carseat at the back. There is not enough weight at the front to keep the front wheel firm on the ground. I solve the problem by switching the front wheel from swivel mode into locked mode whenever I only have the baby in the pushchair. But I switch it back as soon as my toddler gets in the front since its impossible to navigate with a fixed front wheel when the pushchair is fully loaded.

The front wheel wobbles when it's on swivel, what


The wobbling front wheel problem is easily solved. Simply remove the two philips screws from the plastic cap covering the from wheel assembly on the foot plate. (Where the break cable goes into the swivel tube) Now tighten up the large black nut with a spanner, replace the black cap and your done!

On jane powertwin the front wheel shakes when locked into position


Hi,

If the front wheel is shaking, I would suggest this:

Lift the pram so that the handlebar is on the floor and the front wheel is in the air, this way you can see directly underneath the mono-fork (the fork which is attached to the front wheel). At the bottom of the mono-fork there is a very small screw (or hole if it has come out) this can be tightened with a very small allen key. If you have a hole there, then the screw can be purchased from www.johnstonprams.co.uk
However, this only applies to Pro versions of the Powertwin, If yours is a non-pro, then again, I would suggest that you contact Johnston Prams to get them to give you a guide to adjusting the brakes on the front wheel which should stop the wobble fine.
(N.B. If your model is a Pro, it will say on the chassis 'Pro-Fix' or similar)
I hope this helps.

Jane Powertwin Pro Buggy Problems


To lock the front wheel there is a small black button that can be twisted. It is very stiff on my buggy but if you fiddle with it while the wheel is straight it will lock it.

IS there a way to remove the front wheel or the front plat to make the fold smaller for shipping?


It depends how old the jane pram is as the front wheel on mine will come off and at back of plate there is a bolt you can undo to tuck the plate under the front...
