I need new tires, maybe new wheel sets for my 8 year old double jogger!
The only tag left on it is on the back axle bar, and it say model # ZD- 200. It was manufactured in 03/00. I love my double jogger, and have used it daily since I have had it, and it still carries my two youngest! ( 3 and 1) The tires are literally threadbare! The bearings are shot, I think, may need all new wheel sets...I just cant seem to find where to purchase them! Can you help me?
Thanks so much!

1. Lay out a towel/cloth to set fender on and protect. 2. With bike on jack and raised(back tire/wheel just off ground), remove entire rear fender. 3. Unplug wire harness left side just to front of left shock after you remove screw/cover. There's a 8mm bolt just above and over. Same bolt opposite side of fender. 4. Remove the 4 (12mm) bolts holding fender bracket to rear housing (left) and swing arm rear (right). Hold it because it will tip back and bang! It's not real heavy but you do need to support it. 5. When removed set on towel/cloth you have ready. 6. Release pressure from brake caliper (push/pull on caliper) remove brake caliper and hang it by wire (coat hangers work great) so it's not dangling from hose. Do not touch or let anyone touch brake pedal. 7. Remove the brake caliper bracket bolt that goes through swingarm. Place a towel/cloth on floor beneath brake area. 8. Remove cotter key from axle nut. 9. Remove axle while holding axle on the left side with wrench. You can use a large crescent on the axle nut so you don't have to remove exhaust/muffler. 10. As you loosen, slide axle to the left till nut clears muffler. 11. Now when you can slide the axle out. Support the tire/wheel as it is heavy. Caution: As the axle slides out of the brake caliper bracket the spacer could fall and hit towel (which is why you put the towel there see? It prevents too much marring. 12, Now you have room to slide tire/wheel assembly over to right and disengage from the gearcase. Caution: There is a spacer in the center of the gearcase that sometimes falls out and sometimes stays in (most of time). Just make sure it goes back the same. 13. When you're ready for the re-install, grease the drive splines with good quality axle grease. 14 Re-install everything in the reverse order you took it apart. 15. Re- torque rear axle from the left side and hold axle nut (right side) with same large crescent you used to loosen the nut and install a new cotter pin. Doing it this way saves you having to remove the muffler.
Hi. Loud clicking noises from the rear wheels are usually caused by movement of the square steel key that fits into a groove on the axle inside the wheel hub. This is what drives the wheels.
You will probably get a click for each revolution of the wheels.
To fix it, remove the rear wheels and wipe a thin smear of grease on the key and axle, then replace the wheels.
The grease will allow the key to move slightly without making a noise, and help stop it from wearing.
It sometimes helps to also remove the front wheels, and wipe a thin smear of grease onto the front stub axles. There is no key in the front hubs, but the grease helps to prevent the bearings siezing on to the axles.
Good luck. Neil.
The older model joggers fold by separating the frame at the front wheel. Look behind the front wheel and you will see a black connection piece that disconnects the T frame. Release it and pull up/push back on the bar that goes between the seats. Once it goes flat, you can also fold this part onto itself. Please feel free to contact me if you need further guidance
Hi, I have brand new soft parts including a new under basket for a ditto dreamer design double. My stroller died before I could put the replacement on and I don't know what to do with it. Let me know if your interested.
