These types of caps have serrated fingers that grip the main rod and say in place. Not always but, sometimes removing them will damage them where they can not be reused, so be prepared to replace them or find another way to secure the ends. The way to remove them is with a large screw driver or a claw hammer and pry them off. With some, the chrome caps will have to come off, then the finger grip portion will come off, but it will still need to be pried off. Hope this Fixya up.

I can't open/close my bugaboo frog smoothly. In the demo, you're supposed to push the middle bar while holding on to the handles and the swivel wheels will just pop open. I had to use my other hand...


Silicon Spray is the best lubricant for strollers. Avoid oil based lubricants like WD40. Main reason is they stain fabrics second reason they stay wet and attract dust and dirt, Click here for a more important place to use Silicon spray.www.fixya.com/support/r6671290-bugaboo_handle_lock

Where can I get a tube for my bugaboo frog? You can not order from the bugaboo site.


For genuine parts try here www.babycare.nl/spare-parts-bugaboo-frog-c-34_124_174.html But your local bike shop will have a inner tube as lot's of Kiddy bikes have the same size.

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.

My bugaboo frog is stuck in the open position. something is wrong with the mechanism on the chassis that collapses and opens it.


You have two options if your Frog is out of warranty. Buy a new frame, this is around a third of the cost of a new Bugaboo but will add value to your resale price or repair it. Here's my How to fix a Bugaboo Handle instructions Cost varies depending on what parts you need to repair or replace.

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

The bugaboo handle fault is caused either by two small plastic pins shearing of a plastic disk that actuates two metal locking rods or a broken locking rod.Why bugaboo uses plastic for the disk and aluminum for the locking rods is beyond me! They are critical components with a history of failing!

1/.Remove the capped 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 capped washer is to carefully cut a slot in the dome with an angle grinder and then use a large screwdriver to carefully prize one side up so you can fit a screwdriver.Note the walls of the aluminum hub axel are thin and easily distorted, make sure you only lever the capped star lock and not hub axel.Use one screwdriver as a support and another to lift off the capped star lock.
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.The hub and disks are mirrors of each other and not interchangeable.The side with the brake lever is left The Bugaboo parts will have an "L" after their serial numbers.

2/.The lock mechanism is very simple; a wire rod rotates a plastic disk.Check the hubs for ware.If too badly worn or damaged you will have too much movement in the locked position.The Frog and Chameleon use the same plastic hub find another frame to salvage hubs from.They are held in by a single aluminum rivet.
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 either 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.If wire rods seem to be in the incorrect position, loosen the top plastic fittings where the handle extends from by removing the small self-tapping screws and wiggle things into alignment. (I use a small amount of the grease used for taps to give a smooth action)If all is working well fit the new capped star lock 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.Repeat operation on the other side
