Hi,

Based on what you have described, it sounds like the silver domed cover (where the handle meets the bottom of the chassis) may be damaged, this may mean a new chassis is required.
I would suggest that you contact your retailer for repair advice (if this is still within the warranty period) or contact Bugaboo directly on the website link below:

Please note that you will need to have your chassis serial number to hand.

I hope this helps.

When bumping up stairs handle bar extends, and feels loose (handle bar is very wobbley)


The Bugaboo is not the ideal stroller for bumping up and down stairs, The reason being it's core design. Most stroller handles have two or more mounting points to the frame but most strollers have baby facing forward and facing the big bad world and not Mummy. The Bugaboo is very clever, the handle can be locked ether way and the seat face either way but the handle has only one point where it attaches to the frame and that point has to rotate and lock. To give you an idea of the forces involved a crow bar the length of the Bugaboo handle can pull six inch nails out of hard wood!
Unfortunately Bugaboo have not used the best material solutions in this critical handle lock. They use a plastic disk to move aluminum locking pins and they fail if you bump down to many stairs. This happened to our Bugaboo in New Zealand. I repaired ours and now I help others by making or sourcing the better quality parts to repair them. I use aluminum for the disk and stainless steel for the pins.
If you are lucky another to have a Bugaboo less then two years old and still have proof of purchase documents Bugaboo will replace the frame for you. If it's older you can buy a new frame for around $400 but this will also increase you resale value by around $200 when you sell it. Lastly you can repair it for around $100 a side depending on parts required, Click on my name and you'll find many posts on how to repair both the Handle lock and the Handle extension lever or wing-nut. macnutz_23.jpg

How to fix a Bugaboo Handle

If you are not a handyperson type, take these instructions to you local Bicycle Mechanic or Small engineering shop.

The bugaboo handle fault is caused by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods. Why bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me!

1/. Remove the domed star lock washer. This is the hardest part of the job. Most people try to leaver this off in the hope of re using. First problem with this is you will mark or damage the surrounding plastic second is star locks are not intended for reuse and will never hold as well as when first used, so best find a new replacement. A hardware store should be able to source some for you. Quickest way to remove a dome washer is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to prize off.
Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so your moving and flexing one side of the handle does not dislodge parts in the other side.

2/. The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. The disk has two plastic pins that move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub into and out of the outer hub. You need to ether repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a replacement metal screw you can fit / glue in. Or (my preferred choice) have a new metal disk fabricated that will last a lifetime.

3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all has well fit, the new star dome on the hub shaft and tap home. To protect the dome finish I use a large socket from my socket set and an old rubber washer from a toilet cistern.

4/. Repeat operation on the other side. Note the disks are mirror images of each other and are not interchangeable. Bugaboo calls the side with the brake lever “LEFT” the disk will have a serial number that ends with “L”. I have had metal disks laser cut and stainless steel pins fitted. Cost of a disk with a new star dome washer is $75 New Zealand. If you like one or a set, you can contact me macnutz@xnet.co.nz

Steve
