Question about InSTEP Swivel Wheel Single Jogging AR160 Jogger Stroller

Open Question

Brakes drag on rear wheels

Just bought the jogging stroller. Took the first one back because there were broken parts. Now this one has brakes on the rear wheels that drag. It starts off smooth and then the brake slowly drops down onto the wheels making for a rough ride. I'm sure an elastic strap would fix the problem, but it seems silly to have to develop a rig for a brand new product.

SOURCE: Straps ripped on my Instep double jogging stroller (11-KA200)

Instep does have replacement parts for some of their strollers. For $25 I was able to purchase a new seating pad.

How can I fold?

Kindly follow the steps below on how to fold the stroller:
  • Use the ball of your foot to push down on the brake lever, located near the rear wheels of the stroller. Gently push on the stroller to confirm that the brakes are set. Grip the front edge of the stroller's canopy, if present; pull the canopy back towards the rear of the stroller.
  • Push the tabs securing the ends of the harness straps to the harness buckle. Pull the straps aside and remove the child from the stroller.
  • Kneel down next to the stroller's front wheels. Locate the locking mechanism set in between both pairs of front wheels. Use the locking mechanism to disable the swivel feature on the front wheels.
  • Pull the stroller's seat back down to the lowest position; some models may feature locking mechanisms located on the sides of the stroller or built into the handlebar. Lift any latches securing the sides of the stroller in place.
  • Push the handles of the stroller downward. Push the rear section towards the front of the stroller until the device is fully folded. Clip the storage latch located on the side of the stroller to the side of the handlebar.

Safe tech tripple stroller

On my stroller there is a little plastic piece just above the front wheels.  If you push it to the left it will lock the wheels.  Push it back to the right to unlock the wheels.  You may have to push a little hard to move it.

I have a problem with my rear wheel. I lost the black round support that goes between the shaft and the wheel. Maybe we can make one good stroller out of two of these. email me at if you can sell me the support or if you want to purchase the wheel.

Single axel for Bell jogging stroller

good luck finding one. Mine also broke and I called Bell to see if they have these poarts available. As the stroller is no longer in production, they have no parts available. I found a used one in a Goodwill-type store and am currently using it for spare parts.
