Question about Bugaboo Cameleon Jogger

1 Answer

Chassis won't lock into position

Hi - the frame of my cameleon won't snap into position.  When I lift up the frame by the handle, the front and rear wheel axles collapse towards each other, making me nervous that if I put my son in the stroller and need to go over a curb, the whole thing will collapse.

Don't worry, this is normal. once you lock the seat into place, the front bar stays put, even if you hop a curb.

Can I modify the handle bars on a Frog? I need to lower them for Mum under 5ft tall? Take then off and replace with adjustable handlebar? Which part would I need to purchase? Is it in stock? price?


The Cameleon has the adjustable handle it is not available as a part only as a complete chassis for around $400 www.babycare.nl/bugaboo-cameleon-chassis-p-2466.html. Your Frog wheels, seat etc would fit. If you found a broken Cam frame on eBay you could swap the handles. Your Frog would have the parts required to fix the Cam. Click on this link to my tips section www.fixya.com/support/r7805199-fix_bugaboo_handle_lock. Note as you don't need the old Frog handle you could try prizing off and reusing the domes but I don't recommend that. Brake cable is compatible.

My bugaboo cameleon frame wont click on the chassis


The chassis must be fully opened out and the handle locked in position before the seat / bassinet frame can lock down on to it. The seat / bassinet frame is the safety lock keeping the frame ridged. You should see a square hole (made by two half squares from adjoining hub disks) at the top of the chassis hub assembly when fully open. A square pin under the seat frame must engage into it and the white release button must click. Your Bugaboo will not br safe unless this happens and you should contact the seller to help.macnutz_36.jpgmacnutz_35.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?

The stroller wants to turn to the right, it wont stay straight.


Turn stroller upside down (sans baby ;-) First spin each back wheel to check it turns freely and it's fully engaged into the chassis. Front wheels should spin easy and rotate 360. If this is all good check the handle locks, are both sides locked or is only one side locking causing the handle to twist and put uneven pressure on the chassis.

Will a frog seat frame fit on a cameleon chassis


Yes it will fit. the fabric seats are not interchangeable but everything else is. Currently I have Cam wheels on my frog chassis. As well as a cameleon canopy, and a fabric flease set on my frog seat.

Hi, i'm sure you have already figured this out but the frame will not lock into postiton until the carrycot or seat unit is attached to the frame. Once this is attahced the frame should lock.

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:

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

I hope this helps.
