    The response I got from www.bugaboo.co.uk was that anything related to taking the hub off chasis meant purchasing a new chassis ! They do have the individual parts.
    So I will not be recommending Bugaboo to anyone anymore.

Hi,

If you visit www.bugaboo.com you will be able to arrange a repair, make sure that you have your serial number to hand.
Also, if the product is still within it's warranty period, I would suggest that you take this back to the retailer for assistance.

I hope this helps.

Uneven push arm?


If a button latch fails to engage, it often is due to a weak spring. Some wiggling action may get it to pop out; otherwise the part inside the handle will have to be accessed which could prove to be virtually impossible.

We have a bugaboo cameleon buggy and the handle keep coming out even when the locks either side are set............this is a problem when bumping down stairs ect!!!!!


The extendable handle locks come in two versions the older wing nuts and the newer clip lever. Your problem is the bound to the clip lever version. The lock action is made by a cam on the lever pushing on an metal shim that sits over a rubber block. To fix it find a thin nail and cut off the point. Use this to tap out the metal shaft the lever pivots on. With the lever off you should see the shiny metal shim. If it's not there and only the rubber block that's your problem it slipped out. Pry out the shim (hopefully) and the rubber block. Sometimes just flipping the block over to the other side will fix the grip problem. Other wise you need to find a piece of rubber to cut a new block. If the shim is missing open the other side and use that one as a guide to cut a new one.

Is there a store or person who can repair a Bugaboo Cameleon chassis in the Boston, MA area? I'm having trouble with the handle bar. The small white tab on the right side is stuck and so the handle bar...


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 carefully prize one side up so you can fit a screwdriver. Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the Domed Star Lock and not hub axel. Use one screwdriver as a support and another to lift off the Domed Star lock.

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. The hub and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable. The side with the brake lever is left The Bugaboo parts will have an "L" after their serial numbers.

2/. The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. Check the hubs for ware. If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position. The Frog and Chameleon use the same plastic hub find another frame to salvage hubs from. They are held in by a single aluminum rivet.

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 either 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. If wire rods seem to be in the incorrect position, loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all is working 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. Repeat operation on the other side


I have available kits with two (left & right) laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins fitted and two new star dome washers. Cost is $150 New Zealand plus shipping. If you like a set, you can contact me macnutz@xnet.co.nz
