Yes there is an inner tube which sounds as if it has a puncture. I bought replacement inner tubes off e bay for mine when the same happened to mine. You can then either take the tyre off yourself and replace the tube (bit fiddly unless you have a suitable tool like a strong screwdriver for releasing the tyre) or try taking it to your local bicycle shop who could no doubt remove and refit the tyre for you for a small fee.
hi, the chances are you have a puncture os something sharp sticking into the inner tube inside the tyre, what you need to do is buy a puncture repair kit then using the repair kit you take the tyre off the wheel then take the inner tube out. now blow the inner tube up and place it in bowl of water and you should see bubbles coming off the inner tube, mark this with pen when dry so you know where the whole is, now use the puncture kit and place a patch over the whole, you can buy glue type patches or stick on patches without glue, you peel the back off the patch and put glue on or stick it over the whole if its a stick on patch and not glue.
then whilst this dry run your fingers around the inside of the tyre and check for any thorns or something sharp sticking in the tyre if you feel anything remove it and you should be ok, then when glue dry put the inner tube back in tyre and fit the tyre back on wheel now when you pump it up it shouldnt go back down unless you get another puncture.
if you are unsure what you are doing then taking your stroller into any bike shop and ask them to repair the punctures for you and they will do this for you whilst you wait.
Sounds like you're either very unlucky or have a thorn or something similar stuck in the tyre, poking through into the inner tube. I suggest you take out the inner tube and carefully run your fingers around the inside of the tyre to feel for anything that may be causing your problem.
Failing that, you can by a product for road bikes called Panaracer Flataway Tyre liner http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Panaracer_Flataway_Tyre_Liner/5300003783/
It can be cut and stuck to the inside of the tyre, preventing anything puncturing the inner tube through the tyre wall. Good Luck
No sorry but you can get new inner tubes very cheaply off ebay & something called gludge(i think thats what it is called) anyway all bike shops sell it so does ebay, you can buy it to put inside tyre so you won't get a punture or a spray which you put inside inner tube it seals it right away if you get a puncture . it is easy to do I did it myself.
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
I had the same problem after getting a puncture racing around the centre MK. I got a new inner tube from my local Halfords store, it cost about £4.50 and then got some tyre Slime to puncture proof all three tyres! No punctures since!!
think you have a puncture! tyre slime works wonders, i got a puncture on way home from school and used this repair system. worked a treat and treated all other tyres as a preventative measure. jope this helps
I've had two flats on the back tyre on my jane power twin - the first time myself and my husband bought a tyre puncture kit and fixed it. The second time we tried the same thing but the puncture was in such an awkward position that the patch wouldn't adhere to the tyre so I needed a replacement. I went to my nearest Mothercare shop which sells the power twin and asked them to order me a new tyre. It took a week but the part came it and it wasn't just a tyre it was a whole back wheel. They charged me 10 euros (7 Stg approx). Hope this helps.
The tyre and inner tube can be removed in the same way as a standard bicycle tyre, you can google how to remove a tyre to get some more advise.
Once you have removed the inner tube, place it in a bowl of water and try to inflate it with the pump. If you see any bubbles escaping from the tube, you have a puncture and will need to repair, again, additional advise can be found online or talk with your local bike shop for direct advise on how to do this.
If you see no bubbles you need to check that air is not escaping from the pump, if its broken then it will just vent the air as soon as you put it in.
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.
