Re: help- wheel problem!

It is the same as fixing a bicycle inner tube. We levered the tyre off ours with a couple of spoons. Took the inner tube out and partly reinflated it with a bicycle pump. Then dowsed the tyre in a bowl of water to see where the stream of bubbles came from. We marked the hole with a childs crayon, dried the tube, stuck on a bike puncture repair patch and that fixed it. Then checked the inside of the tyre, found and removed the thorn that was sticking through it that caused the puncture. Then replaced the inner tube, levered the tyre back on, pumped it up and away we went. Didn't take long and minimal cost.

I guess the problem arose because we did not notice that the tyres had lost their pressure and so were running flat. Motto - check tyre pressures regularly as you do with a car.

Re: help- wheel problem!

Call or email the company. I had the same problem and they sent me a new inner tube for free b/c my stroller was still under warranty (yours should be too). I took the new tube and the stroller to a bike shop where they finished the repair for me for $5.

Send the broken wheel to the company and ask for another. Look up their number on their website for You might try a local bicycle store and ask them to repair your tire with the leak in it. It will be a lot faster than waiting for a new tire, and cheaper too.

My bugaboo's not been used for a while and so the tyres are flat. i now need to use it again, but as there's no bond between tyre and wheel, i can't inflate!!!

Tyre will be loose on the rim when deflated the problem is Bugaboo don't put a lock nut on the valve stem so it can pop down into the wheel when you try to inflate it with that joke of a pump Bugaboo provide. Best option is to just pop down to your local bike shop. Next best is to go to your local gas station as the valve is the same size as a car valve. Squeeze the tire tightly at the valve stem pushing it out as far as you can so you can fit the air line. Bugaboo recommend 15 psi / 1 Bar this is way to soft and I always inflate to 30 psi / 2 Bar. Try somewhere between the two as it's a compromise between ease of pushing vs softness of ride.

Hi, the tyres on my quinny buzz seem to be flat (I can press them right down with my finger) but the inner tubes are fully inflated and do not have a puncture, is this normal?

Both Bugaboo and Quinny recommended tyre inflation pressure as 15 psi / 1 bar. I find this way to soft and run my tires at 30 psi / 2 bar with no problems and far easier pushing.

My quinny rear tyre is flat tried to inflate the tyre but still does not work what should i look out for

you have a few choices
but if you want a long term fix you are better off getting a new inner tube as once a puncture occurs with the quinny wheels they will carry on doing it but theey are cheap enough to replace via ebay for about £6

if you dont want to replace you will need to remove the rubber wheel from the hub as you would a bike tyre then remove the inner tube
pump the tyre up put in water so you can find the hole then fix with a puncture repair kit

if you want to carry on using you can fill the tyres with tyre weld as you would a car they dont puncture and makes the quinny a smother ride

and if all else fails you can buy a used or new pair of wheels from ebay between £15 and £30
hope this helps x

One of the back tires on my baby trend columbia stroller is flat. I cant find a hole anywhere. It seems like it may be a problem around the thing that you put air in....any suggestions??

If you pump the tire again with enough air and put your ear against the tire you may be able to hear the air escaping.

If it's a slow leak you may not be able to hear it but any bicycle tire levers will allow you to take off the tire. More than likely you pinched the tube or punctured with a sharp object in use.

I usually recommend replacing the tube completely, the cost & ease of replacing the tube is better than using the patches which I find it a headache to deal with smaller wheels especially for any jogging strollers.

Problem with tires ,air is escaping

Pick up a kit for bicycle repair. Take the wheel off, deflate, pull the wheel from the rim and remove the tube. Pump the tube up a little, place under water and look for the bubbles. Once you find the bubbles, patch with the bike tire repair kit, deflate, put the tube back in, reattach tire to rim and inflate.

Quinny pushchair puncture

A tire can be repaired with a regular bicycle repair patch. Otherwise you can use inflate a flat or tire slime to seal the leak, but you will have to rotate the wheel at a substantial rpm untill the repair sets, perhaps a powerdrill without a bit.

Fixing a flat tire

Any bike shop will have patch equipment. You need to deflate the tire and remove it from the wheel. See if there is a tube inside the tire. If so, the fix is easy: either purchase a new tube for the tire, or get a patch. Use modelling glue on the patch then press it continually on the hole on the tire for about five minutes until it is dry. Afterwards, re-insert the tube into the tire, reattach the tire to the rim and pump it back up
