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.

    I have the same problem with the brake dragging on the rear wheels. I tried a bungi cord but it's not working.

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.

What do you do if your back wheels feels like they are dragging on your 2003 ford explorer


if you have rear drum brakes a return spring that pulls the brake shoes back to the unapplied position or a hold down spring may have broken which is now causing the brake shoes on that wheel to be applied causing the drag not all people bought there cars and trucks with 4 wheel disc brakes it was cheaper and didn't matter to them they just wanted lower $$$ check it out if this is the case you'll have to turn the adjuster star wheel inside the drum all the way in to get the drum off because the brake is applied it will be a pain but you'll get it you must use a brake spoon or a flat blade screw driver and a smaller one to lift up the return spring arm from the star wheel if this one is broken you will have to try to pry the drum off then buy a spring kit from auto parts and some brake tools if you don't have them already and change all the springs one by one so you don't get confused but also try to get a rear brake shoe diagram in case everything has fallen apart inside and you remove the drum and find a whole bunch of parts on the floor in front of you the diagram will give you the aid that you'll need if you have never done this before most of all inspect that wheel cylinder for leaking fluid if this is so replace it now good luck LATER MAN!

Needing a part for Safetech Triple Jogging Stroller


It really depends on why you need this stroller. Ill start off by saying I have 5 strollers and 2 kids (4 months and 3.5 years). We spend half the year in Europe and there we have the Bugaboo Chameleon (great for city living but not practical for suburbs) and the Baby Jogger City Mini GT for traveling to other countries. We used the Maclaren quest for a while but found that the cobblestone and uneven grounds in Europe made it tough for our daughter to sleep so now the Maclaren just stays in the trunk for quick grocery runs. We also have the Bob Ironman for running for when we are in the States. My husband and I run on average of 15-30 miles a week on paved roads and trails and we love the Bob. Problem now is we have two children. My daughter is old enough where we don't need a double for everyday as we have the buggy board for the Bugaboo and that works fine. HOWEVER we are very active and we got tired of taking turns running with one child while the other waits. My daughter can't run mileage of course and even trail runs /walks are too strenuous for a toddler to walk. We needed a double for this reason. Locally we don't have these strollers so I ordered both. I love both my Baby jogger City mini GT and Bob Ironman so I wasn't sure if the Summit Double or Bob Double is what I needed. Brief comparison

1- I like the canopy on the Baby Jogger better than the Bob. It's the same coverage just sturdier.
2- the foot rest on the summit is really short. My daughters feet were dangling off the side bc she simply didn't know where to put them
3- the Bob tends to sag in the middle when both children are inside. Not the seat portion but the backrest. This was not an issue on the Baby Jogger.
4- the baby jogger is really short length wise. It makes it great for turns but I was worried if I took it on hills or trail runs that it would tip backwards. The Bob is much longer (and slimmer BTW) which also gives my daughter a place to rest her feet.
5- handbrake. I really wanted one since I'm used to my ironman. The Baby Jogger has it and the Bob does not (even though Bob is coming out with a double in July 2014 with an adjustable handle and handbrake but I needed the stroller ASAP and couldn't wait).

Long story short - we returned the summit and kept the Bob. The only reason why I'm not giving this a five star rating is because I miss having a handbrake. For running, I needed the durability and ruggedness of the Bob. I never write reviews but I figured perhaps this can help someone with the same criteria as I did without having to return one stroller back for $80. Arghhhhhhh

When I apply the brakes on my '02Dakota only the forward brake shoe moves against the drum. Have replaced wheel cylinder but makes no difference. Both shoes move when I loosen adjuster cable. Have this...


you mean parking brake cable? loosen parking brake cables put drums on , and adjust shoes till they lightly drag, now apply brakes a few times and check the adjustment again, if all ok, now adjust park brake cables, you want to adjust so park pedal goes 5-8 clicks till the wheels are "locked up" and the wheels spin free with the park brake off

Rear ABS Light/Rear brakes drag sometimes


The only moving parts on brake's are caliper's and master cylinder.The rest are just pipe's. Dosent sound like the master cylinder as the two back brakes should lock not one. It still sounds like caliper's. Can you be sure they have changed them If it were mine I would get someone independent to check they have done the work they say they done.

Right rear wheel has rubbing and grinding noises, as on cast iron


My advise is to adjust the rear brakes. The drum should not move in a side to side fashion. adjusting the brakes will also more than likely take care of that anti lock brake light also. adjust the brakes up to where the rear wheel will spin but you should be able to hear the brake show dragging slightly on the drum.

Rear anti lock brake light & brake light on in 1991 ford 350e m/h


If the brake light and alb lights are on u need to get it checked out, as this is a warning of a brake problem, and u could find yourself w/out brakes.
1st check the easy things, is tire pressure what it should be in the rear tires? Low pressure on one side would result in the tire running hotter than the other properly inflated side. Is the emergency brake completely off? If on even slightly, it can turn on the brake light. Is brake fluid at the proper level? If low, the brake light will go on. If it's low, u must check for leaks to see why it's low. The abs light on indicates a problem w/ the system, it could be as simple as a broken wire at the rear wheels. u may also have a brake dragging on the rear pass. side, causing the brakes to overheat, which could result in heat transfer to the wheel, and then the tire. This can be checked by jacking up the vehicle (~if u have a sturdy enough jack), and with front wheels blocked front and back, in neutral, engine off, turn wheels in back, see if resistance to turning is the same, or if brakes are dragging, u should be able to tell. Let me know how u make out.
