Though I know the producer claims the pushchair is unsuitable for jogging, it happens with my new Freestyle 3 XL often that once you start to walk quickly (and of course when you start running), the front wheel starts to vibrate uncontrollably and the whole wheelchair likewise. Does anybody have an idea why? (Otherwise it is a very fine pushchair and this described problem can be "solved" by locking the wheel into a fixed position). Thanks R. Prahl
My wife also complained about this, but then we found out, that front wheel has la lock mechanism. so if you intend to go quick or run with it (I do it here and there), you should lock front wheel in straight position. Then there are no vibrations of wheel. But careful! You also can not make quick turns, so dont forget to unluck it after going slow again.
A 6ya expert can help you resolve that issue over the phone in a minute or two.

They should have been included if the pushchair was purchased brand new from a retailer - go back to the retailer and explain the adaptors were not included and they will supply.

Hi, I wouldn't try opening the wheel suspension as you will never get it back together, what I suggest is that you buy a new or used set of front wheels for you buggy on ebay, there is lots of spare parts to be purchased in very good condition. Regards marie
I have a user manual for the Quinny XL Freestyle Comfort. I'm not sure where online that I found it; but I saved it on my computer. It's not the exact manual that I need. I have the Quinny XL Freestyle(not the Comfort), model # 01-980. The Comfort model looks like it has a swivel front wheel instead of a "leaning" wheel. But this manual is close enough. Since I don't know where I found it, you'll have to email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll send it to you.
Speaking of the "leaning" front wheel, does anyone else know why stroller manufacturers have not started incorporating this fantastic feature!? Why did Quinny stop using it? And can I find it on any other stroller? I need a double stroller now and would love to find one with this feature.
From the associated pictures, it appears the front wheel does NOT swivel. Generally jogger strollers do not have a front swivaling wheel because it may cause the stroller to flip while jogging. Jeep makes a stroller that has a front swival with a locking device on the front wheel, they also have these with a built in speaker system to attach mp3, cd players to. Sorry I couldnt be of more help. If you wantn to email me an actual photo of your stroller I will take a closer look and determine if it can swival. Just let me know on here.
Well, i'm not positive in this, seeing how I never had kids, but while jogging are you pushing down harder on the stroller? or you could look for smaller wheels to put it on, but then again you might have'ft to bend over to do it, and if the handle which you push is tall that has to do with force viberating the stroller
A tire can be repaired with a regular bicycle repair patch. Otherwise you can use inflate a flat or tire slime to seal the leak, but you will have to rotate the wheel at a substantial rpm untill the repair sets, perhaps a powerdrill without a bit.
