SOURCE: changing my bugaboo cameleon from carry cot to buggy

Watch the video, "bugaboo assembly" on youtube. The trick is getting the buckle over the silver pins. You actually have to bend the frame to secure the strap then pull out the frame so it is straight again.

SOURCE: Can I use the cameleon or frog seat frame on a gecko chasis?

Hello. My recommendation is to have your local tailor or seamstress make a new one using the old one as a pattern. Getting into replacing the seat frame will be a lot more complicated

How to fix a Bugaboo Handle

If you are not a handyperson type, take these instructions to you local Bicycle Mechanic or Small engineering shop.

The bugaboo handle fault is caused by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods. Why bugaboo uses a plastic disk for this critical component is beyond me!

1/. Remove the domed 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 dome washer is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to prize off.
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.

2/. The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk. 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 ether 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.

3/. Reassemble handle locking hub and check operation. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smooth action) If all has 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.

4/. Repeat operation on the other side. Note the disks are mirror images of each other and are not interchangeable. Bugaboo calls the side with the brake lever “LEFT” the disk will have a serial number that ends with “L”. I have had metal disks laser cut and stainless steel pins fitted. Cost of a disk with a new star dome washer is $75 New Zealand. If you like one or a set, you can contact me macnutz@xnet.co.nz

Regards

Steve

Take care at step 3. A lot of people fit the small front wheel incorrectly and it's not easy to get them back out! See image (G) for a better view.macnutz_10.jpgmacnutz_11.jpg

I have a bugaboo cameleon 1st generation that has a fault. If i was to buy a new 2nd edition chassis would my carrycot still fix on to this chassis.


I have a second hand chameleon and it feels like the frame is a little loose. Is there any way that you could tighten the frame up?

I have a bugaboo wlth the white colour brake and have just found out that the white colour ones are out of date. my question is does anybody know if i can get it changed over to the red one and how much...


Bugaboo don't sell parts as such but they sell the chassis. It will coat you around a third of the price of a new Bugaboo. The new Red brake lever chassis has the lever extension handle locks instead of the wing-nuts and rocker style buttons for the handle release. Your old frame will be quite sort after on eBay. I like the rocker handle release and the extension levers are quick to use and look better but I must warn you the old wing-nut system held the handle better and if you bump down a lot of stairs the new lever system is more prone to slipping, macnutz_16.jpg

I have a bugaboo chamelon pram , the two round white knobs at the side for reclining seem to be stuck and wont click back into place !! making the carrycot?pushchair unstable


If the Cameleon is under two years old then it is covered by the warranty. The best thing to do is to contact the retailer you purchased the pushchair from or contact Bugaboo direct (www.bugaboo.com). They should arrange for a set of replacement buttons for the seat frame and instructions to be sent to you. If it is out of warranty, you'll just need to purchase these spare parts from them.

Can I use the cameleon or frog seat frame on a gecko chasis?


HIYA.... IVE HAD ALOT OF BUGGIES AND PRAMS... IVE ALSO MADE MANY BUGABOOS UP, JUST BY USING USED PARTS AND PIECING THEM TOGETHER.

ALL COMPONENTS FROG, CAMELEON AND GECKO FIT ONTO 1 AND ANOTHER. YOU COULD BUY A FROG SEAT FABRIC TRY EBAY FOR THE CHEAPER OPTION, THIS IS EXACTLY THE SAME SIZE. THE CAMELEON 1 WOULD ALSO FIT, AS IVE HAD A CAMELEON COVER ON A FROG SEAT FRAME AND IT FITTED JUST AS GOOD :)

HOPE THIS HELPS X
