Question about Audio Players & Recorders
I have a Bugaboo Bee only 5 months old and the handlebar clip is broken and stays open, instead of clipping closed. It was really stiff when we first got the Bee, but then loosened up beautifully, now it is loose and sloppy!
When we set up the Bee, I have to lean way over the Bee and hold it from under the handlebar area on both sides so it clips into place securely. Not good for the 'ol back! Not at all elegant like in the Bugaboo Bee video on youtube!
The clip is rivetted on so it looks like we will need to send back the whole chassis for replacement. We are in Australia and this is causing shipping issues with Bugaboo USA.
Do you know if we can fix this fault on the Bee? My husband is very handy and a bit of an sound engineering genius, but we don't want to do any damage...just want to fix it, and be back motoring along safely with our little guy.
I to had this problem, my problem was i also lost proof of purchase so couldnt get a new chassis, Bugaboo even though the prams havent been out for two years wouldnt replace so i had to try and either fix the pram or buy a new chassis for £235. I then read on the internet about how to remove the rivets on the chassis, you need a rivet gun and a drill the problem was the rubber had broken and fallen way down the pram chassis and if you can replace this with some new rubber the chassis is good to go (just make sure you do this slowly so you can see what part goes back where), you need to buy new rivets as when you remove the old olds these are no longer useable, i am soo happy i tried to fix this, it took me and my sister 1/2 hour and saved me £235 (the price quoted by Bugaboo for a new chassis). Hey hope this helps anyone and saves you having to line Bugaboo pockets, hey theres a clearly a niche in the market as Bugaboo do not have a work shop, they clearly want you to keep spending!!!!
