Question about Bugaboo Cameleon Stroller

Open Question

My Bugaboo chameleon has started to veer quite badly when on slightly uneven pavements (ie. sloping slightly from one side to the other). I am permanently having to correct it, which is quite hard work and I end up with sore wrists! Any ideas? Thanks a lot

SOURCE: 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!

My Bugaboo Chameleon veers to the right- the wheels are intact but something seems to be off. It makes it impossible to push with one hand. Any idea what could be worng?

First check that both front wheels are set to the same spring tension. Next check that all four wheels spin freely and the front two can swivel around 360. If all OK push up and down on the handle bar, the inch or so of movement is usual for a Bugaboo but both sides of the handle should stop at the same position. If not then you have a problem with the locking pins in the handle hubs. Check here for more info.

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.
