Question about Phil & Teds E3 Jogger
The tires are flat and the pump doesn't fill the tires....Any suggestions? thank you
You may also have a puncture.
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.
Hope that helps

I suggest a hand tire pump. A tire that operates at such a low pressure needs to be "finessed" Pump them until they are firm and hard to squeeze. That should do the trick! Thanks for using Fixya!

The bugaboo tires may be filled at any gas station with a std tire pump. You must only inflate to 15psi or 1 bar of pressure. This will take about 1 sec at the gas station pump which will do about 100 psi.
You can do it very easy :) I have done it before. BUT YOU MUST BE CAREFUL. As you can overpressurize and pop the tire of the wheel :)
Take it very easy with a very quick taps on the trigger atnd all will be well. It will fill very easily :)
