    My brakes didn't work on the first bugaboo i had so I returned it to the shop where they offered to help by getting bugaboo to post a million parts to fix it myself ! After a few frustrating weeks I got a replacement frame. 18 months later they have broke again what should I do ??

I just repaired my Bugaboo Chameleon brake. If the white brake lever doesn't "lock" i.e stays in its forward position, locking the brake you need to disassemble the brake handle housing. Open the black plastic cover by unscrewing the two screws. The handle should come off with a little tweaking. Remove the brake wire. The "button" where you are supposed to release the brake is actually a sort of cogwheel that stops the lever from springing back. Sometimes the cogwheel gets too pushed in the handle. You can tell if it has done so by observing the 8 small grooves that are out of place. Simply take a small flat object like a flat screwdriver and pry the button out. It should pop out as it is spring loaded. Now put it back in its position but TURN IT so it fit in the grooves. Put it back in the black handle, by reversing the disassembly process. Easy!

Best Regards,Fred, Stockholm, Sweden(Sorry about the English, hope you understand)

I had mine fixed by a bicycle repair shop. It cost £5 and took 20 minutes.

Brake cable is probably loose. Follow cable down from lever you'll find an adjustment nut at the end. Loosen the lock nut and wind the cable holder out to take up the cable slack. Check operation if happy retighten lock nut.

My bugaboo cameleon's break no longer works. It


Hi,

There are two ways of solving this. You can either contact the retailer where this was purchased for repair under warranty (if this was of course a fault and under two years old) or you can contact Bugaboo for a replacement brake assembly kit. This is very straight-forward to replace yourself.
www.bugaboo.com - if you go via Bugaboo themselves, they will require your purchase information, colour, serial number etc.
I hope this helps.
