Question about Valco Runabout Deluxe Jogger

1 Answer

Cracked Foam Rubber Handle Bars

The foam rubber that covers the metal handle bars on my valco runabout has cracked. I would like to replace it but the problem is the handlebars are not screwed in, they are attached with rivets so I can not take the handle bars off. Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated.

Hi, my baby's valco runabout2 tri mode pram needs the foam on the handle bar replaced & the wheel on the front has come away from the shaft & is dangerously wobbly. I purchased the pram from ebay,...


you can buy hollow foam from clack rubber shops
and the wheel assembly from a wheels and castor retailer
take the pram,/stroller in and they should be able to match it
contact the manufacturer as well as they may have spares for the unit

My Bugaboo Frog has a split in the foam on the handlebar. Can this foam be replaced, if so where can I get it in the UK. Thanks, Jane.


The foam is a product called neoprene tubing and can be found at specialist rubber product suppliers. Google a local supplier. Changing the grab bar rubber is easy just use hot soapy water but the handle bar is a problem as the foam is fitted before assembly and it would require disassembly to replace. This is not easy as the handle is riveted on and has internal parts to operate the handle locks. You can buy a special glue for repairing wetsuits to fix the split and stop it opening up further.

How to change foam on handles


See if you can unscrew the handle bar first.
Then search for replacement foam online, maybe on ebay or bugaboo website.
And when you have bought the replacement foam grips, you can take a look here to see how to attach them yourself.

I am looking for a new rounded handle bar that you use to push the stroller along with. The foam on my one is damaged


unfortunately I believe you have to buy a new chassis jus for the handle bar. The best way is to just buy a handle bar cover for the handle bar. That will cover the damage and also protect it from further damage.

ATW-T52, hissing/crackling.


A common problem that SOME have is due to the foam windscreen inside the metal screen rubbing the diaphram of the mic.

Unscfew the dome screen and make sure the foam is out agaist the scree everywhere.

If the dome has become dented, this is my cure: Temporarily remove the foam sheet inside the dome. Put the dome over the handle of a Crescent wrench (has about the right contour). Pound on the screen with a RUBBER mallet, rotating the screen as it reforms! Good as new! Replace the foam sheet and reassemble!

Torn foam covering on handle


Hi there's a place in america that sells replacement zip up foam covers for the Quinnys, do it in various lengths so you can also get one for your bumper bar at the front if thats a bit tatty as well. They are about £20 including shipping which is fairly reasonable considering how much the cost in the first place! Go onto ebay and look for 'quinny handle cover', and there's also companies on ebay that do replacement quinny stickers as well for a few quid as they wear so quickly.
