Kettler Air Navigator Tricycle

Hi there,

Trying to switch from the fixed wheel position to the free wheel position - so the pedals will turn when bike is being pushed - can't for the life of me figure out the diagrams in the manual. Any help +++ appreciated.

Thanks - Diana

    Yes, I have the same problem. I'd like the pedals to turn so my son can get the idea of pushing on the pedals.

    we also have the pedals stuck so they won't rotate with the wheel. i called for support - they suggested something about taking off the hubcap and refitting a spring, but i can't figure it out.... : (

My husband and I just put this trike together and had a similar problem - the front wheel always turned the pedals and we couldn't figure out how to stop this. The manual for the trike is awful and very hard to understand. After spending a LOT of time analyzing the pictures and doing all sorts of weird things to the pedals, I found a posting on a website that said they'd had the same problem, but had removed and re-attached the front wheel and the problem was suddenly fixed. Sounds too good to be true, right? Well, we noticed that in one of the manual's pictures that the air valve for the front tire was facing the other direction - we'd actually put the tire on backwards. I took the tire off, put it back on facing the other way, and suddenly it all works as it's supposed to.

The thing is, you actually don't have to "do" anything to change from free to fixed and keep the pedals stable. If my daughter pushes the pedals around, they move around, and if she keeps her feet steady on them, the wheel continues to go around while the pedals stay put. It truly is automatic, which the diagram in the manual does a terrible job of conveying.

Hope this helps someone. We like this trike, but the directions are beastly!

Thank you for contacting Kettler USA Parts. There is no way to make a wheel that has the free wheel feature to be a permanent fixed wheel. The only way to make the pedals turn with the wheel is if the child pedals the trike. We do have a wheel from another trike that looks like the wheel on your trike but does not have the free wheel feature that you can purchase. Please supply us with a home phone number, address and the model# off of the round white sticker on the underside of your trike so we can supply you with a price quote for this fixed wheel.
Thank you,
Karen

    We just bought a Kettler tricycle and noticed the same free roll mode. I just took the wheel apart and put a cut-off 5mm rivet in the mechanism that engages the pedals when force is applied from the feet. This way its engaged all the time.

We just bought a Kettler tricycle for our kid and noticed the same clutch-like feature. Really annoying.

Solution: Take the wheel off and locate the mechanism that engages/disengages the wheel and pedals. Its an inside-out gear wheel. When you pry the two parts of the inside gear wheel apart it engages.

So just put something about 5mm wide between the two parts and reassemble. I used a sawn-off 5mm wide rivet. Worked like a charm.

How can I fix slipping handle bars on kettler?


There should be a nut around the colum that comes up from the wheel and connects to the handlebars that is probably loose. If you can't get it yourself I have found that if you take it to a local bike shop they will fix these things usually for free or at a minimal charge usually less than five bucks. Take to a mom and pops type store you will get better service and like I said they will usually fix these things on the spot for free. hope this helps

My brake on my quinny buzz no longer works - help!


This happened to me on both brake pedals, nothing happened when I tried.to put them on, the pedals just did not move at all. I tried adjusting the brakes as per the dorel video on you tube, but still nothing. My husband found the solution though. He worked some oil into both pedal mechanisms and worked it through until both pedals moved again, once he had plied through a couple of times, both pedals and the brake now work fine, just turned out the pedals has seized over the years and just needed a good oiling. Worth giving this a try.

Valco pram repair


Hi there.

If it is a plastic moulding that has stuck, use a silicone spray (mr sheen will do) to release it.

If this will not help at all, try your nearest Halfords bike department or bicycle repair shop. I doubt they will charge you anything.

If it is a broken part, find the manufacturer for ordering a replacement.

Hope this helps,

My jogging stroller shakes


Well, i'm not positive in this, seeing how I never had kids, but while jogging are you pushing down harder on the stroller? or you could look for smaller wheels to put it on, but then again you might have'ft to bend over to do it, and if the handle which you push is tall that has to do with force viberating the stroller
