You need a set of tire levers to begin with.. anyplace that sells bike parts/tubes tires will have these.. they are just a nicely set of angled thin yet dull levers.

Using the levers you will need to lift one edge of the tire off the rim so the tire is half way on the wheel. To simply replace the tube.. continue on to B.

To completely remove the tire off the wheel.. flip the wheel over and using the levers pry the tire the rest of the way off the wheel. working your way around.. it will be snug then suddenly free.

Replaceing the tire is the same..except you only want to put it on half way before inserting the tube..


B. Remove the air stem cap and if you have the tool to remove the needle valve from the stem.. do that too as to let ALL the air out of the flat.. then pull the bad tube out.

Put the new deflated tube inside the wheel as flat and wrinkle free as possible starting with placing the air stem through the wheel.. and working it around until well seated.. some folks will use a bit of talcum powder on the tube.. usually they come dusted to allow them to properly fit when inflated.

Once you have the tube in the wheel.. start pressing the tire bead back under the rim.. depending on the wheel.. you may want to partly inflate the tube.. just a tiny bit.. so it will not get trapped between the tire and wheel rim when you re-seat the tire.. you can usually re-seat the tire to the rim with your fingers..becareful not to pinch yourself.

Inspect the wheel to make sure no parts of the inner tube is visible.. inflate to proper psi.. put on the stem cap.. replace the wheel.

You can buy a set of tire liners that will prevent punctures.. but of course this involves doing most of the above times four.

Lastly.. if you feel you just can't get it done.. stop by a good bike shop.. they will do it for you in just a few minutes.. possibly for no charge or little charge.

Best of luck!

Replacement rear wheel of quinny buzz


You can buy tyres off ebay at about £9 each. inner tubes are very cheap on there as well. Check out local bike shop as they might be cheaper.

One of my tires on my quinny buzz keeps going flat how can this be fixed? Is there a tube inside the tires?


Yes there is an inner tube which sounds as if it has a puncture. I bought replacement inner tubes off e bay for mine when the same happened to mine. You can then either take the tyre off yourself and replace the tube (bit fiddly unless you have a suitable tool like a strong screwdriver for releasing the tyre) or try taking it to your local bicycle shop who could no doubt remove and refit the tyre for you for a small fee.

Back wheels keep deflating


hi, the chances are you have a puncture os something sharp sticking into the inner tube inside the tyre, what you need to do is buy a puncture repair kit then using the repair kit you take the tyre off the wheel then take the inner tube out.
now blow the inner tube up and place it in bowl of water and you should see bubbles coming off the inner tube, mark this with pen when dry so you know where the whole is, now use the puncture kit and place a patch over the whole, you can buy glue type patches or stick on patches without glue, you peel the back off the patch and put glue on or stick it over the whole if its a stick on patch and not glue.

then whilst this dry run your fingers around the inside of the tyre and check for any thorns or something sharp sticking in the tyre if you feel anything remove it and you should be ok, then when glue dry put the inner tube back in tyre and fit the tyre back on wheel now when you pump it up it shouldnt go back down unless you get another puncture.

if you are unsure what you are doing then taking your stroller into any bike shop and ask them to repair the punctures for you and they will do this for you whilst you wait.

Nearly every time i use my quinny buzz the tyers hace a puncture. i have replaced each tyres inertube atleast 3 times


Sounds like you're either very unlucky or have a thorn or something similar stuck in the tyre, poking through into the inner tube. I suggest you take out the inner tube and carefully run your fingers around the inside of the tyre to feel for anything that may be causing your problem.
Failing that, you can by a product for road bikes called Panaracer Flataway Tyre liner http://www.wiggle.co.uk/p/cycle/7/Panaracer_Flataway_Tyre_Liner/5300003783/
It can be cut and stuck to the inside of the tyre, preventing anything puncturing the inner tube through the tyre wall. Good Luck

My quinny rear wheel keeps losing air, ive replaced inner tube but it keeps going flat


Hi it sounds like you have something stuck in th tyre itself that is punturing the new inner tube, take them out & feel inside the tyre if there is anything sharp there remove it. Then you can repair the tubes.

My quinny rear tyre is flat tried to inflate the tyre but still does not work what should i look out for


you have a few choices
but if you want a long term fix you are better off getting a new inner tube as once a puncture occurs with the quinny wheels they will carry on doing it but theey are cheap enough to replace via ebay for about £6

if you dont want to replace you will need to remove the rubber wheel from the hub as you would a bike tyre then remove the inner tube
pump the tyre up put in water so you can find the hole then fix with a puncture repair kit

if you want to carry on using you can fill the tyres with tyre weld as you would a car they dont puncture and makes the quinny a smother ride

and if all else fails you can buy a used or new pair of wheels from ebay between £15 and £30
hope this helps x

No quinny spare parts retailer in the Uk !!!!


Please have a look at these links:
Rear tyre
Rear tube
International shipping available.

These are actually original spares, directly from Quinny, but as the text states, the sizes used on the Quinny Buzz are quite common.

With kind regards,

I need a new tube for a quinny buzz tyre


I had the same problem after getting a puncture racing around the centre MK. I got a new inner tube from my local Halfords store, it cost about £4.50 and then got some tyre Slime to puncture proof all three tyres! No punctures since!!

How do you change the inner tubes on the quinny buzz


I took the whole tyre off the alloy bit, then when I had fixed the inner tube pushed it back inside the tyre then put the silver alloy bit back on.
