Question about Jane Powertwin - Silver Jogger Stroller

1 Answer

I have the older style Jane Powertin with the spoke wheels. The brake bar is hitting off the plastic ring on the inner side of the wheel (that the brake bar fits into when the brake is on)  so when I push the stroller it now makes a bad clicking noise. It alternates between the right and left back wheels.

Hi,

This sounds like the brake bar (at some point) has had a little too much pressure applied to it. The brake bar itself has a natural curve and when too much pressure is applied, the curve becomes distorted, therefore making the silver metal pins sit at an odd angle (instead of being horizontal) this in-turn makes the pins contact the cogs on the inside of the back wheels, hence the clicking noise.
The remedy for this is get the brake bar drilled out (is attached via rivets, so this is the only way) then the bar can be straightened and re-rivetted on. The best option to get advice on this is to contact www.johnstonprams.co.uk or www.jane.es for repair agents.

I hope this helps.

How do I replace a Tracomp spoke on a Mavis Ksyrium SLR rear wheel? Can't work out how to release the hub end.


I believe you'll have to undo the spoke at the rim end (Mavic uses a torx style head on the nipple). With the hub end of the spoke, looks like a ball but with two flat sides. When the spoke is tensioned it seats the ball end into the straight pull flange. This style is used in pretty much all of Mavic's high end wheel sets (Road or Mountain). Some have a plastic clip-on type cover. This can be removed with a flat head screwdriver. Good Luck!

The wobbling front wheel problem is easily solved. Simply remove the two philips screws from the plastic cap covering the from wheel assembly on the foot plate. (Where the break cable goes into the swivel tube) Now tighten up the large black nut with a spanner, replace the black cap and your done!

Jane powertwin splayed back wheels-rear brake plastic bracket


Hi,

This sounds like some kind of excessive weight on the handle bar or a buggy board has been used, either that or too much pressure has been applied to the break bar. On the break bar, this should have a natural curve to it, if this looks wonky, then this is probably the reason. If this is the case, then the bar will have to be drilled off, straightened and re-rivetted back on.
I would suggest that you contact either your retailer for repairs advice, or www.johnstonprams,co.uk please note that this does sound like you will have to pay for it to be repaired.

I hope this helps.

To lock the front wheel there is a small black button that can be twisted. It is very stiff on my buggy but if you fiddle with it while the wheel is straight it will lock it.

Front wheel wobbles


More than likely the wheel is out of true. There are 2 choices,

1 Buy a spoke wrench and attemp to true the wheel. You can do this by spinning the wheel to locate the spot where the wheel goes furthest to one side then tighten the spoke coming from the opposite side. Do this slowly 1/2 turn at a time. Do not over tighten the spoke. It may be necessary to loosen the other side slightly.

Alternate spokes between both sides of wobble.

2 Take bike to a good local bike shop to be tuned and have the wheels trued. Most shops offer a tune up at low cost. A well tuned bike will last a long time.
