Hi,

It sounds like you need a Canopy Clamp. This part enables you to connect the canopy to the seat frame. You should have a left and right clamp to make this work. These can be purchased from Bugaboo (www.bugaboo.com) for around £5 each.

I hope this helps.

Bugaboo gecko handle lock wont lock. It does however lock on the larger wheel side. I did open both sides up and the pins and the plastic wheel seem to be in good shape. The hubs dont seem to be broken...


On face book? check out Bugaboo Repair Guy photo albums if the locking pins extend out into the outer hub chanel and there is no damage to the plastic hubs it will lock.

Handle bar will not longer allow collapse suggestions please - bugaboo gecko.


The bugaboo handle fault is caused either by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods or broken locking rods.Why bugaboo uses plastic for the disk and aluminum for the locking rods is beyond me!They are critical components with a history of failing and should be made in stainless steel.

1/.Remove the capped star lock washer.This is the hardest part of the job.Most people try to leaver this off in the hope of re using.First problem with this is you will mark or damage the surrounding plastic second is star locks are not intended for reuse and will never hold as well as when first used, so best find a new replacement.A hardware store should be able to source some for you.Quickest way to remove a capped washer is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to carefully prize one side up so you can fit another screwdriver under the starlock.Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the capped star lock and not hub axel.Use one screwdriver as a support and another to lift off the capped star lock.macnutz_2.jpgNote it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so your moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side.The hubs and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable the locking rods are interchangeable.The side with the brake lever is left The Bugaboo parts will have an "L" after their serial numbers.

2/.The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk.Check the hubs for wear.If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position.The Frog, Gecko and Chameleon use the same plastic hub so find another frame to salvage hubs from.They are held in by a single aluminum rivet.
The disks have two plastic pins that move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub. Locking into and out of the outer hub.You need to either repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a replacement metal screw you can fit / glue in.Or (my preferred choice) have a new metal disk fabricated that will last a lifetime.The locking rods can only be replaced, either by ones salvaged from another frame or new laser cut copies.I prefer the copies as they have been cut from stainless steel.

3/.Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation.If wire rods seem to be in the incorrect position, loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws (note I'm now finding some frames now have pop rivets, drill them out and replace with self tappers) and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the silicon grease used for taps to give a smooth action)If all is working well fit the new capped star lock on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern.Repeat operation on the other side.
macnutz_1.jpg
I can't emphasize enough the need to keep Bugaboo hubs well lubricated with silicon spray.They have to endure incredible forces from the handle.To give you some idea, a crow bar of the same length can pull six inch nails out of hard wood!

I do have parts available: laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins, replacement-locking rods in stainless steel and capped star lock washers. You can contact me at macnutz@xnet.co.nz

I have lost a little cap off the big wheel of my bugaboo gecko ! Where can I get a replacement ? Thanks


They are called capped starlock washers. Google starlock that will find you a manufacturer and they can direct you to a local supplier. You just need to tell them the diameter of the axel and ask for the domed style.

Use of Bugaboo bumper bar for Bugaboo Gecko


Hi,

In short, no! There is no way for a bumper bar to be attached to a Gecko model.

Hope this clarifies for you.
