Re: putting air in Bugaboo tires

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

Re: putting air in Bugaboo tires

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!

Re: putting air in Bugaboo tires


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 :)

My bugaboo's not been used for a while and so the tyres are flat. i now need to use it again, but as there's no bond between tyre and wheel, i can't inflate!!!

Tyre will be loose on the rim when deflated the problem is Bugaboo don't put a lock nut on the valve stem so it can pop down into the wheel when you try to inflate it with that joke of a pump Bugaboo provide. Best option is to just pop down to your local bike shop. Next best is to go to your local gas station as the valve is the same size as a car valve. Squeeze the tire tightly at the valve stem pushing it out as far as you can so you can fit the air line. Bugaboo recommend 15 psi / 1 Bar this is way to soft and I always inflate to 30 psi / 2 Bar. Try somewhere between the two as it's a compromise between ease of pushing vs softness of ride.

Hi...I currently own Bugaboo Cameleon, which has the air filled wheels. I would really like to purchase foam wheels since it eliminates the part of filling air filled wheels. I would love to purchase...

Yes they do. I've never had a problem with the air filled tires for two reasons. I threw away that plastic joke of an air pump and filled the tires at the local garage to 2 bar / 30 psi not the silly 1 bar / 15 psi Bugaboo recommend. 15 psi is to soft and makes punctures far more likely.

I have lost the pump for my Bugaboo Frog, both of the tyres are completely flat. Where can I buy a new pump? Thanks, Paul

The Bugaboo pump is a plastic joke and a bad one at that. Most Bugaboo's have the same tyre valve as a car and a car foot pump from your auto shop or department store will be cheaper and faster. If you want a more portable pump check out your local bike shop they have far better ones available. Very old Bugaboos have the smaller bicycle valve the newest Bugaboo's now have foam filled tires.

Help- wheel problem!

Send the broken wheel to the company and ask for another. Look up their number on their website for You might try a local bicycle store and ask them to repair your tire with the leak in it. It will be a lot faster than waiting for a new tire, and cheaper too.
