I have had my Jane Slalom pro pushchair now for 21 months and whilst I am mostly pleased with it, I am having lots of problems with the breaks. The foot break bar is dropping slightly and catching on the break cogs that the bar fits into maling an annoying clicking sound.I am told this is a common fault with the pushchair but can find no-one to repair it. can you help?

We have had exactly the same problem. We took the pram back to where we purchased it from and got the pram fully serviced, the back tyres were changed for a better quality all terrain one, and the front tyres were also changed with new bearings fitted. It works as good as new now, however I still think this is only a temporary solution... Interestingly we have only used the pram (from new) for just four months before the tyres completely deteriorated and we found the manoeuvrability a major problem.
We have this problem with our powertwin when my toddler is not riding in the front and I only have the baby in the carseat at the back. There is not enough weight at the front to keep the front wheel firm on the ground. I solve the problem by switching the front wheel from swivel mode into locked mode whenever I only have the baby in the pushchair. But I switch it back as soon as my toddler gets in the front since its impossible to navigate with a fixed front wheel when the pushchair is fully loaded.
When you are using the carseats (Rebel or Strata I expect) then make sure that the carseat handles are in the upward postition (as they would be when you carry them) the handles will then support the raincover.
