Question about Regal Lager Phil & Teds Vibe Jogger
A friend just gave me her Phil & Ted Sport (lucky me!) BUT the thing wobbles and pulls terribly. I am not at all mechanically inclined so I don't even know if I should replace all the wheels or maybe just the front one? or even if it could be the frame or bearings, etc. The wheels do look warped while rolling and it looks like the white part on the front tire overhangs the black plastic wheel part in places. Thanks for some advice on which direction to head in with this!
It sounds like that the tyre or innertube has perhaps become warped, this can happen when there has been over or under inflation.
I would suggest that you try first with a new innertube (get one from a local bicycle shop with a 'bent valve' as this makes inflation easier). If this doesn't help, then you can then try a new tyre and see if that helps.
I hope this helps.

Testimonial: "very helpful!"
We had a similar problem. You can get replacement axles from the Phil & Ted website http://store.philandteds.com/parts/index.cat for US$8.99 plus postage and you can get new bearings (FR8-ZZ Flanged Bearings 1/2" x 1 1/8") from www.usabearingsandbelts.com for US$7 per pair including postage. (you'll need a pair for each wheel). If you buy the whole wheel option (US$39)from Phil & Ted it doesn't come with the axle and the axle definitely does not come with bearings. ;( Trust this helps.
