Need to buy a new bugaboo cameleon front wheel circlip and dome

When I open the frame of the bugaboo, I push the knobs towards me and I successfully lift the handlebar up. When I try and lift the handlebar up to kick the wheels out, I can sometimes do it but at other...


There a three parts / assemblies to a Bugaboo Chassis that all pivot around the central hub (the thing with the large chrome domes). The white release buttons only control the handle locks in the outer set of hubs. The two wheel assembles are locked by the seat / bassinet clipping on to the frame and locking the inner hub. This hub is the heart of your Bugaboo and there is a reason Bugaboo put a can of silicon spray in the maintenance kit. Keep those hubs and the brake lever well lubricated and you'll get good service from your Bugaboo. Check out my Tips section for more info.

Our brake on a Bugaboo Comeleon will not stay locked. Mechanically it works; just will not stay in place.


Hi,

This sounds like the mechanism within the brake (white brake on the handle bar) has broken inside. I would suggest that you contact www.bugaboo.com who generally will give the parts for this repair free.

Hope this helps.

My bugaboo won't fold down. I think that the spring is broken on the push button on the handle that you press to fold over. Is there anything else that I could look at to try and fix this.


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 $150 New Zealand plus shipping. If you would like a set, my contact email address is below.

Hi,

Based on what you have described, it sounds like the silver domed cover (where the handle meets the bottom of the chassis) may be damaged, this may mean a new chassis is required.
I would suggest that you contact your retailer for repair advice (if this is still within the warranty period) or contact Bugaboo directly on the website link below:

www.bugaboo.com

Please note that you will need to have your chassis serial number to hand.

I hope this helps.

Bugaboo cameleon handle bar


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 :)

How do you fit a bugaboo buggy board to a bugaboo frog?


Leave the (bassinet or seat) on then flip the stroller forward the big wheels have to be in the air. put on the clips make sure
you put the right on the right and the left on the left push them until they cover the silver screws. then put the wheel board on
huging the bar if not it will not go in, start from the very bottom. And once its on don't forget to put the elastic with the velcro on.
the velcro goes on the bar right above the wheelboard. this will help you keep it up when your not using it.
Hope this helped.
