SOURCE: I just bought second hand bugaboo cameleon and it

Hi,

I am afraid that this sounds like someone has put this into a hot tumble dryer, and cannot be rectified. I suggest that you purchase another hood or tailored fabric set.

Hope that helps.

I haven't worked on a 2010 (yet) But I'm 99.9% certain you'll have no problem Bugaboo are good at keeping mounts standardized unlike some makes where each year it's virtually a different stroller. With chain store brands they usually are.

There has been a lot of complaints about the Bee's wheels on the internet including Bugaboo's own Face Book page! Your Bugaboo is ether in or only just out of the 2 year Warranty so contact Bugaboo customer service about getting a replacement set. The rear wheels are held by Hex nuts and are easy to remove with a small hex key any hardware shop can sell you. I use Silicon grease (as used to lubricate taps) when I repair stroller wheels. I think the Bee is a neat little Stroller and my wife has one but it really is only a Shopping Mall Stroller and those little wheels won't tolerate to much rough suburban footpaths.

The Bugaboo canopy uses a clever two stage hub. A spring keeps the sections together in a twin set of wavy indents. As you pull the canopy out the first arch moves to the next indentation (60 degrees) than the second arch moves it's next indentation (90 degrees). If you have the fabric set to far back over the back of the frame and a arch can't reach it's next indentation it will jump back to it's first position. Check the arches can reach the indentations. If a spring breaks inside a hub it is not repairable but is available as a part for around 25 Euro for a pair.www.babycare.nl/bugaboo-canopy-clamp-cameleon-2pc-p-2467.html Ships Worldwide or Check out www.bugaboo.com

Bugaboo Bee 2009 back wheel won't come off


Not sure if your problem is removing the Hex bolts or pressing the axel out. Either way what you have tried is all you can do at home. Pop down to your local engineering work shop. They can press is out in no time. Max they'll charge is half an hour around $40 they may do it for free if in a good mood.

The hood has never stayed up tight always looks slack.


Hi,

This sounds like you have the hood clamps on the wrong way round. Take them off and swap them over, this should sort it out.

Hope that helps.

Bugaboo Cameleon - 2 problems (Canvas Hood/Canopy and Shaky/Loose Handlebar


hi there


hope this makes sense....


the handlebars on all bugaboo cameleons are 'loose'... it is a safety feature, designed that if one or more wheels are off the ground the stroller will not fold.
You will notice when you take the seat frame off the chassis to fold it, it will only allow you to do so if you release the locks somewhere in between the tow positions of 'give' (if that makes sense)

it is basically so that IF someone does not have the seatframe on properly, thus not locking it into the starlock, and they accidentaly press the lock/unlock switch when goin off a kerb etc, that the chassis will not fold. its not a fault, just a design feature.

As regards the hood, this is difficult to explain online, but basically it sounds like the two clamps that attach your hood to the seat frame have the 'teeth' in different positions than each other.
they have to be symetrically aligned. ie if the plastic skeleton part that goes through the hood is further back on one side than the other, the hood looks 'floppy'

i appreciate this probably makes no sense, like i said its hard to explain online. if you cant sort it yourself check the bugaboo website for your local stockist, and go in. they will be more than happy to fix the hood for you.
This is really why companies like bugaboo like customers to buy strollers from retail stores, instead of having a box delivered and assembling yourself, as they can take you through it all, assemble it, and give you a decent demo of how it works.


cheers
