View Full Version : Anyone got a Jane Powertwin?

I got one delivered today from ebay and im not sure if the front wheel is ok? I had to put the wheels into place and the rear ones went on fine, the front was a bit tricky cause of the disc brake thing. However it doesnt seem to sit straight on the fork? When the wheel is locked in the forward position, it doesnt sit at a 90 degree angle to the floor - instead it kind of sits on the outside edge of the tyre iygwim. Also when you turn it left to right, the wheel kind of 'jumps/bounces' when it passes the middle (sorry if this is hard to explain :blush: )

It is as tight as everything will go, so maybe this is what they are like? but i dont want to use it and the wheel carries on down the road while im stuck with only 2 wheels joined on and 2 very bemused mindees :laughing:

have you tried locking the front wheel? mine jumps a bit from side to side when the wheel isn't locked (but its 2nd hand i don't think its meant to do it) but is fine when the wheel is locked straight.

the front wheel on mine jumps about so much I can't push it so have to lock the front wheel which I hate doing as I can't steer it.
That only happens when the front seat is empty though, it's fine when ds sits in there.

Pale blue and lime green. Did you get a bargain? Mine cost 65 including a matching car seat:thumbsup:

Mine was 70 with BN raincover and pump, so not wquite a bargain as yours, although i dont need a carseat

I stripped all the covers off and hubby noticed a bit of metal had been bent, so he took it to work and straightened it, now the wheel sits properly and it pushes fine :clapping: :clapping:
