The handlebar is stuck on my bugaboo

How to fix a Bugaboo Handle Locking Mechanism
If you are not the handyperson type, take these instructions to you local bicycle mechanic or small engineering shop.
The cause of the Bugaboo handle fault is due to two small plastic pins shearing off a plastic disk inside the plastic hub. This disk activates two metal locking rods. Why Bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me. The disk's two plastic pins move the locking rods in and out of the inner hub engaging and disengaging the outer hub. You need to either repair the disk by drilling out the pin stumps and finding a metal screw you can fit / glue in or replace with a new metal disk fabricated to last a lifetime.
The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates the plastic disk that moves the lock pins. Before replacing the disk, check the hubs for wear. If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position. Both the Frog and Cameleon use the same plastic hubs so you can find an old frame and salvage replacement hubs. A single aluminum rivet holds them and this is easily drilled out.
1/ Remove the domed star lock. This is the hardest part of the job and most people try to lever this off in the hope of reusing. The first problem is you mark or damage the surrounding plastic, the second is the star lock isn't intended to be reused and will not hold as well. It is best to find a new replacement - normally sourced from a hardware store on indent.
The quickest way to remove a domed star lock is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to gently prise up one side high enough so you can fit a second screwdriver underneath without marking the plastic. Note. The walls of the aluminum shaft the hub rotates on are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the domed star lock and not the shaft. Use the first screwdriver to support the second screwdriver as per photo.
Note it is best to open and repair one side at a time, so the 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/ Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. If the wire rods seem to be out of 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 smoother 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 (left & right) laser cut metal disks with stainless steel pins and two new star dome locks. Cost is $160 New Zealand plus shipping. If you would like a set, my contact email address is below.

A friend lent me her old Bugaboo Frog. It has been working fine. I am able to remove the seat and fold the chassis into the folded position. When I try to unfold the chassis, I am able to get the...


This should only happen when the seat/carrycot frame has not been put on. If this happens when the seat is on, then I would suggest that this is returned for a repair ( as this could be dangerous.

Hope this helps.

Unfolding the Chassis - Handlebar Loose

I had the same problem... the handlebar would 'un-pop' and shake around a lot making the whole stroller unsteady. I started to get all upset and worried about sending it back but i decided to clean it first. After using the silicon spray from the maintenance kit on the joints of the stroller IT WORKS LIKE NEW! yay! Try this before assuming its broken :)

Bugaboo Cameleon - 2 problems (Canvas Hood/Canopy and Shaky/Loose Handlebar

hi there

hope this makes sense....

the handlebars on all bugaboo cameleons are 'loose'... it is a safety feature, designed that if one or more wheels are off the ground the stroller will not fold.
You will notice when you take the seat frame off the chassis to fold it, it will only allow you to do so if you release the locks somewhere in between the tow positions of 'give' (if that makes sense)

it is basically so that IF someone does not have the seatframe on properly, thus not locking it into the starlock, and they accidentaly press the lock/unlock switch when goin off a kerb etc, that the chassis will not fold. its not a fault, just a design feature.

As regards the hood, this is difficult to explain online, but basically it sounds like the two clamps that attach your hood to the seat frame have the 'teeth' in different positions than each other.
they have to be symetrically aligned. ie if the plastic skeleton part that goes through the hood is further back on one side than the other, the hood looks 'floppy'

i appreciate this probably makes no sense, like i said its hard to explain online. if you cant sort it yourself check the bugaboo website for your local stockist, and go in. they will be more than happy to fix the hood for you.
This is really why companies like bugaboo like customers to buy strollers from retail stores, instead of having a box delivered and assembling yourself, as they can take you through it all, assemble it, and give you a decent demo of how it works.
