SOURCE: phil and ted vibe, wont lock and front wheel issues

The Vibe is very fussy to fold and has driven me up the wall on a few occaisions. To get it to lock when folded, the handlebar must be in the fully raised position - I think that is the secret. (The basket should also empty - we keep the raincover in there and it can obstruct when folding.) As for going round in circles, perhaps check that both rear wheels are inflated to the same pressure - but there's no doubt that the front wheel has a mind of its own, particularly at slow speeds or when starting off. Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: I have recently a purchased a phil and ted vibe

I had this problem when the mudguards were incorrectly attached in the shop. Take off the wheels and mudguards. Reattach the mudguards by slotting them downwards into the guides on the post and then push the wheels on. Until the mudguard is correctly attached, the axle on the wheel is not long enough to reach the locked position.

PROBLEM WITH THE FRONT WHEEL OF PHIL AND TEDS VIBE


Spray it with some synthetic lubricant. I was about to toss my P&T over the bridge until we picked up a can for less than $5 at the local hardware - it rolls good as new. Occasionally (especially after a rainy day) I'll pull the whole front wheel off, wipe down the inside of the tube, and spray both surfaces & allow to dry before replacing.

Once I've folded my phil & ted vibe (in single mode) the locking clips won't fold into place (I've used as much force as I dare -- worried I might break the clips if I try any harder). This makes it...


When folding the Vibe some important things to remember are that the handlebar must be in the most upright position (perpendicular to the ground), nothing can be below the rear axle level (ie. lift the basket up above this) and the front single wheel should have the side with the attachment bar on the outside.
The fold locks will not engage if everything is not in the correct position. If everything is in the correct position the fold locks will easily engage/disengage. If everything is NOT in the correct position the fold locks will not engage and should not be forced.

Folding:
  1. Put handle bar in upright position.

  2. Undo the side lock clips. Then you lift the red lever on the side to start the fold. Fold so that the pram front wheel and handle come together.

  3. As the pram folds ensure basket is above rear axle and the front wheel has the attachment bar on the outside.

  4. When the pram is fully folded you can fold the side lock clips back in place.

I have recently a purchased a phil and ted vibe but the rear wheels do not seem to lock onto the frame. They have become loose and fallen off when pushing the pushchair


I had this problem when the mudguards were incorrectly attached in the shop. Take off the wheels and mudguards. Reattach the mudguards by slotting them downwards into the guides on the post and then push the wheels on. Until the mudguard is correctly attached, the axle on the wheel is not long enough to reach the locked position.

Phil & Ted's Vibe very stiff front wheel


Hi
I am onto my third Phil and Teds Vibe due to issues with the front wheel. It never ever worked smoothly from the moment it was assembled. The first time the UK distributors Outnabout replaced the pin - no help. The next time they replaced the entire no buggy. The new buggy is exactly the same - stiff front wheel that is back breaking to turn and squeaks loudly. Interestingly, I am waiting for Outnabout to send some lubricant that Phil and Teds have recommended; despite being told by the retailer in no uncertain terms NOT to use lubricant. I plan to return the third and final buggy and ask for a full refund or partial refund and replacement with a Sports buggy model. The wheel mechanism is different on that one. Good luck. As you can see, I am all out of answers.
