I have easily solved this problem here in Brazil, where there are no Bugaboo retailers or assistance. I just opened the brake lever case by unscrewing it and fixed the white piece in its correct position. It's very easy to figure it out.
The only special care you have to take is not to lose the spring that is inside it.

HIYA.... YOUR BEST BET IS... TAKE THE HANDLE BAR BACK OFF AGAIN. TAKE THE SPRING OUT OF THE SIDE THAT WORKS FINE AND TAKE IT TO YOUR LOCAL DIY STORE AND GET A REPLACEMENT, IF YOU CANT FIND IT ASK SOMEONE IM SURE SOMEONE WILL BE ABLE TO SEND YOU IN THE RIGHT DIRECTION... PROVIDING ITS JUST THE SPRING, IF YOU BUY ANOTHER TO REPLACE THE BROKEN/LOST 1

THIS SHOULD SOLVE THE PROBLEM :)

My bugaboo cameleon stroller handelbar is hanging down and not locking in. It is over two years old is there any way to fix it?


The bugaboo handle fault is caused either by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods or broken locking rods.Why bugaboo uses plastic for the disk and aluminum for the locking rods is beyond me!They are critical components with a history of failing and should be made in stainless steel.

1/.Remove the capped 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 capped 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 another screwdriver under the starlock.Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the capped star lock and not hub axel.Use one screwdriver as a support and another to lift off the capped star lock.macnutz_2.jpgNote 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 hubs and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable the locking rods are 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 wear.If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position.The Frog, Gecko and Chameleon use the same plastic hub so find another frame to salvage hubs from.They are held in by a single aluminum rivet.
The disks have two plastic pins that move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub. Locking 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.The locking rods can only be replaced, either by ones salvaged from another frame or new laser cut copies.I prefer the copies as they have been cut from stainless steel.

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 (note I'm now finding some frames now have pop rivets, drill them out and replace with self tappers) and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the silicon grease used for taps to give a smooth action)If all is working well fit the new capped star lock 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 can't emphasize enough the need to keep Bugaboo hubs well lubricated with silicon spray.They have to endure incredible forces from the handle.To give you some idea, a crow bar of the same length can pull six inch nails out of hard wood!

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.

When tyring to fold the bugaboo one side seems to be stuck


The handle is prone to failure. Quite often it will either lock up in one position and not move or it won't lock at all and the handle becomes floppy. You have two options if your Bugaboo is out of warranty. Buy a new frame, this is around a third of the cost of a new Bugaboo but will add value to your resale price (as you'll get the newer handle extension lever system and the red brake lever) or repair it. Cost varies depending on what parts you need to repair or replace. Worse case scenario of all the parts in a hub being broken would cost around $100 to fix that one hub vs $400 for a new chassis with an added $200 to resale value.
Here's my How to fix a Bugaboo Handle instructions if you are not a handy person type, take these instructions to you local Bicycle Mechanic or Small engineering shop.

The bugaboo handle fault is caused either by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods or one or both locking rods breaking. Why bugaboo uses plastic for the disk and aluminum for the locking rods is beyond me! They are critical components with a history of failing!

1/ Remove the capped 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 the star lock is 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 capped 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 another screwdriver under it. Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the capped star lock and not the hub axel. Use one screwdriver as a support and another to lift off the capped 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 locking rods are interchangeable. The side with the brake lever is left side. 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 wear. 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. You may also get the disks and rods from it. The hub is 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 amore robust metal disk fabricated.

3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation.

My cameleon has become very loose, the frame flexes when pushed on a slope. It seems particularly loose at the main pivot point on the frame.


This is a far to common fault with Bugaboo's If it's less then two years old Bugaboo will replace it. If older you can buy a new one around $400 if yours is the older wing nut version you will improve your resale value with the newer lever version. Or you can fix it for around $100 a side. Depends on what parts are broken.
