Question about Valco Baby TriMode EX Twin Stroller Arctic

1 Answer

In less than a week, I have had 2 flat tires on my Valco Twin TriMode EX. The tires are not over inflated. I now have the replacement tubes, but can't get the tires off of the plastic rims in order to install the new tubes, even with using the proper bicycle tire removers. Any ideas? I can change a flat on my bicycle in 4 minutes, but can't figure out this Valco tire.

    Giving birth to twins is easier than changing in inner tubes on a valco stroller. I did get it done, but it required a butter knife, flat head screwdriver and a bunch of cursing.

The rear tires on my Everest & Jennings foldable wheelchair are very low in pressure. Both tires have the words "Inflate to 55 - 65 Pounds" clearly stamped on the sidewalls. However, there...


Your tire tubes may have been replaced with urethane foam inserts - these give a comfortable ride like air-filled tires but cannot go flat - would explain why you don't see a fill valve - these inserts fit inside the regular tire carcass.
If they are worn out, you'll need to replace them, process is same as replacing a tube.

How do you fold down the valco runabout trimode stroller? I bought a used model and I can get the top half to fold over but that's it. Can it fold over more compactly? I'd like to travel with it. Thanks!


hi!!
to fold the stroller yo need to:
1.fold the hood back up against the handle.
2.release the locking clamps at either side of the stroller.
3.simultaneously lift the secondary safety catch and swing the handle forward.
4.holding the frame at the rear, press down on the rear basket tube.
5.you also can lock the frame with the strap next to the frame.

here you have the manual, could be easy with de graphics!

Replacement parts.


Many Valco Baby models are equipped with 12 inch tires. Just like a car or bike, punctures can occur. A 12 inch inner tube or bicycle tire repair kit would be all you need to seal the puncture. If need be, tubes can be purchased from your local retailer or contact them at (USA) 800 610 7850 or email info@valcobaby.com Tubes are not covered under warranty.

Tire maintenance


Check your tire air pressure at least once a week and before long trips. Be sure to use an accurate pressure gauge. -Check your air pressure when the tires are cold. The tires are cold when your motorcycle has been ridden less than a mile at moderate speed or after being stopped for three or more hours. -If you must add air when your tires are hot, add four pounds per square inch (4 psi)(28 kPa) above the recommended cold inflation pressure. Recheck the inflation pressure when the tire is cold. -Never release air from a hot tire in order to reach the recommended cold tire pressure. -Normal riding causes tires to run hotter and inflation pressure to increase. If you release air when your tires are hot, you may dangerously under inflate your tires. -If your tires lose more than two pounds per square inch (2 psi)(14 kPa) per month, the tire, the valve, or wheel may be damaged. Consult your local dealer for an inspection. -Use valve caps to keep valve cores clean, clear of debris and to help guard against air leakage.

Flat tire--not fixable--is bubbling


I advise you try the shop where it came from for a replacement tube for it.

Failing that, 'phone the manufacturer to have one sent out.
