    This sounds alot like the problem we have - are your back wheels splaying out aswell? I will be watching this with interest to hear your replies.

    a little yes. problem solves slightly if you lift pushchair when pushing, suppose it takes the weight off, but not ideal when you have 2 kids and shopping!

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!

My Mutsy stroller squeaks!

mcdevito75 here, Chances are the plastic has become hard and is not as flexable as it was when new, now the plastic rubs against the metal causeing the noise. You can try to use Vasoline petroleum jelly on and in between the plastic and the metal.

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


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:

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


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, please note that this does sound like you will have to pay for it to be repaired.

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.

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...


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 or for repair agents.

I hope this helps.

Closing it up???

I believe that towards the handle bar part on either side there is plastic tubing which cases the metal part. You slide the plasticy bit up (one side has a metal lever under) and then hey presto the side bars folds into 2 parts and the rest should follow .....

Brake(?) rubbing on left big wheel when not on level surface or turning

The same thing happened to mine. I had a good look at what was going on and decided that the length of brake chord is ever so slightly too short. Even with the brake cable adjuster as far "down" as it can go, the chord brings the brake shoe up too close to the wheel making the "raspberry noise" on the left. I got my brand new bugaboo suspiciously cheap and am now wondering whether perhaps it was a factory second because of the short chord.
Anyway, after a bit of tinkering the problem has been almost eradicated, it now only makes the rude noise on the tightest of turns.
1) First, ensure the brake cable adjuster is as far down as possible by rotating it clockwise until you can rotate no further. It can be a bit fiddly so try taking the right big wheel off to get better access to the adjuster.
If the adjuster was not at the bottom before then put the wheel back on and give it another go - it might now work!
2) if not, turn the chassis upside down and identify the thinner cross-bar, just above the "big wheel" axle. You should be able to see 2 screws, one at either end of the bar.
Unscrew the screw at the opposite end of the bar to the brake cable. Now, GENTLY pull the brake at the same end( the green nobbly bit)upwards, towards you whilst re-tightening the screw you've just removed. Only release the little bit of tension on the brakes once the screw is fully tightened.
This step might seem a bit pointless, as it appears that you unscrew a screw, then do it straight back up. Fair point but that tiny bit of flex in the brake/crossbar assembly made all the difference to ours!
I do hope this helps - I really think there is a bit of a design fault here as ideally the adjuster should be set in the middle of the range so that adjustments can be made either side of the neutral. Mine is right on the lower limit and hence has no further room for adjustment. Unless of course it is, as I say, a factory second!! Sorry if I've gone all technical.
Good luck!
