Question about Bugaboo Cameleon Jogger

1 Answer

Loose handlebars The handlebars on our bugaboo chameleon are loose in their attachement to the wheels. If you have the pushchair set up, and lift the handlebars up, it is a few inches before it connects with the wheels to lift the wheels up. Any ideas how I can tighten them?

    I have the same problem and would love to know if this is supposed to be like this or is it broken. Can it be tightened?

    I've got the same problem, I thought about taking off the silver caps on the side of the join to see if there is any sort of screw or bolt in there that I could tighten, but other posts seem to say that this made their bugaboo worse. It would be great to get a solution for how to tighten this up.

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.

Unfolding the Chassis - Handlebar Loose

I had the same problem... the handlebar would 'un-pop' and shake around a lot making the whole stroller unsteady. I started to get all upset and worried about sending it back but i decided to clean it first. After using the silicon spray from the maintenance kit on the joints of the stroller IT WORKS LIKE NEW! yay! Try this before assuming its broken :)
