How do you oil a bugaboo pram ? Mine is making a horrible squeaking noise. Thank you Megan

Use silicon spray not oil based lubricants like WD40 . Lubricate the wheels and brake lever avoid the handle extension locking levers and the upper handle. Once a month spray some in to the handle locks. Look on the inside of the handle where it joins onto the plastic hubs. You'll see a slot in the plastic part and a wire rod in that slot. SPRAY IT!!! It will save you big $$$ in the long run. If wheels feel gritty remove from stroller and drop them in a bucket of hot soapy water. Rinse under running water give them a good spray of silicon and wipe off excess with a paper towel.

The plastic brake thing on the handle has broken, where or how can I replace this?

Bugaboo don't sell this as a part. If your Bugaboo is under 2 years old Bugaboo will give you a new frame. If older you have two options maybe three: 1/ Check out eBay for a cheap frame with a different fault ( I find UK eBay good for this) 2/ Take the lever asembly apart (it's quite a simple unit held together by two screws) and take the broken lever parts to a plastic welder (look in your yellow pages). Yes plastic can be welded.
There are stroller repair places that sell secondhand parts when they have them. BuggyPitStop in the UK and Karlisle's in Austrailia. A google will find them.

I have a bugaboo wlth the white colour brake and have just found out that the white colour ones are out of date. my question is does anybody know if i can get it changed over to the red one and how much...

Bugaboo don't sell parts as such but they sell the chassis. It will coat you around a third of the price of a new Bugaboo. The new Red brake lever chassis has the lever extension handle locks instead of the wing-nuts and rocker style buttons for the handle release. Your old frame will be quite sort after on eBay. I like the rocker handle release and the extension levers are quick to use and look better but I must warn you the old wing-nut system held the handle better and if you bump down a lot of stairs the new lever system is more prone to slipping, macnutz_16.jpg

Brake cable is probably loose. Follow cable down from lever you'll find an adjustment nut at the end. Loosen the lock nut and wind the cable holder out to take up the cable slack. Check operation if happy retighten lock nut.

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

The lock on the brakes of my bugaboo cameleon doesn't work.

I just repaired my Bugaboo Chameleon brake. If the white brake lever doesn't "lock" i.e stays in its forward position, locking the brake you need to disassemble the brake handle housing. Open the black plastic cover by unscrewing the two screws. The handle should come off with a little tweaking. Remove the brake wire. The "button" where you are supposed to release the brake is actually a sort of cogwheel that stops the lever from springing back. Sometimes the cogwheel gets too pushed in the handle. You can tell if it has done so by observing the 8 small grooves that are out of place. Simply take a small flat object like a flat screwdriver and pry the button out. It should pop out as it is spring loaded. Now put it back in its position but TURN IT so it fit in the grooves. Put it back in the black handle, by reversing the disassembly process. Easy!

Best Regards,Fred, Stockholm, Sweden(Sorry about the English, hope you understand)
