Bugaboo brake pad is not aligned with wheel

We have a problem where the brake pad on the right wheel is not aligned with the wheel, it is at a slight angle, so because of this the lever does not lock, as part of the pad engages before the rest... I cannot figure out how to change the angle of the brake pad..any suggestions?

One wheel doesnt seem to brake when i put the lever on. it slips and makes a rattle sound. the other side catches on the wheel no problem


This is a common problem with the bugaboo's The brakes use a toothed brake shoe to fit in to a toothed inner rim, What happens is one shoe seems to alway fit into the toothed rim but while the other side always hits the top of the teeth causing the shoes and connecting rod to twist. Eventually you get the problem you describe. The brakes shoes are interconnected by an aluminum rod. The shoes have two splines that fit into slots in the rod and a phillips screw to lock them in. First try taking the back wheels off and getting a strong man to hold the shoe that doest lock while pulling the one that does back in to alignment. This quite often works. If the twist is to much I remove one shoe cut off the splines turn the shoe to align with the other shoe then drill a new hole for the locking screw.

Wheels sticking will not open lock jammed


The bugaboo brake lever can lockup. Check the screw nut at the bottom end of the cable. If you can wind that down to take some tension off the cable the lever will them release. If there is no adjustment try lifting the lever up higher (as to put the brake on harder) then push the white release button at the same time. The break lever uses a set of ratchet teeth that must move up slightly to release.

We have bought a 2nd hand bugaboo cameleon. The teeth on the right hand break pad are sheared off. Where can we purchase a new break part? I am not having any luck finding this through the Bugaboo official...


You can't. Bugaboo only sell a complete chassis as a spare part! Take both brake pad units off and got to your local plastic welder. He can build up the plastic on the worn one then shape it using the other side as a guide.

How do i remove front wheels on bugaboo chameleon? thanks


The part of the front wheels that pokes out above the connection point has two slightly flared pieces. Squeeze them together and pull the wheel back through the connection point.

How can I fix the alignment of the wheels of a Bugaboo Cameleon stroller (it veers to the right)?


There are two answers to this problem:

1) The suspension on the front swivel wheels on the Cameleon are adjustable. As the child gets older (and heavier), his/her weight might effect the handling of the stroller. It is recommended that the suspension be adjusted. To do this, move the suspension adjustment forward, as it increases its strength.

2) There has been significant conversation about this problem with the Cameleon's veering if the chassis was purchased before 2007. If so, contact bugaboo via bugaboo.com. Bugaboo will ask you for your serial number, etc. to research whether it is something that is obviously defective.

If you have any further questions, or need help contacting the company, don't hesitate to contact us anytime!

Brake(?) rubbing on left big wheel when not on level surface or turning


The same thing happened to mine. I had a good look at what was going on and decided that the length of brake chord is ever so slightly too short. Even with the brake cable adjuster as far "down" as it can go, the chord brings the brake shoe up too close to the wheel making the "raspberry noise" on the left. I got my brand new bugaboo suspiciously cheap and am now wondering whether perhaps it was a factory second because of the short chord.
Anyway, after a bit of tinkering the problem has been almost eradicated, it now only makes the rude noise on the tightest of turns.
1) First, ensure the brake cable adjuster is as far down as possible by rotating it clockwise until you can rotate no further. It can be a bit fiddly so try taking the right big wheel off to get better access to the adjuster.
If the adjuster was not at the bottom before then put the wheel back on and give it another go - it might now work!
2) if not, turn the chassis upside down and identify the thinner cross-bar, just above the "big wheel" axle. You should be able to see 2 screws, one at either end of the bar.
Unscrew the screw at the opposite end of the bar to the brake cable. Now, GENTLY pull the brake at the same end( the green nobbly bit)upwards, towards you whilst re-tightening the screw you've just removed. Only release the little bit of tension on the brakes once the screw is fully tightened.
This step might seem a bit pointless, as it appears that you unscrew a screw, then do it straight back up. Fair point but that tiny bit of flex in the brake/crossbar assembly made all the difference to ours!
I do hope this helps - I really think there is a bit of a design fault here as ideally the adjuster should be set in the middle of the range so that adjustments can be made either side of the neutral. Mine is right on the lower limit and hence has no further room for adjustment. Unless of course it is, as I say, a factory second!! Sorry if I've gone all technical.
Good luck!
