Chipolino Sofia: Is there a way to replace existing wheels with bigger-sized wheels?

Swarup • 06 Apr 2024

Hi Eli,

Unknowingly i ended up buying medium sized wheel stroller from Chipolino. Now I am facing difficulty moving around in Sofia pavements. The very next day of purchase the shop people refused to change for a different model.
So my question is, is there a way to replace existing wheels with bigger sized wheels?

Hey there,

I am sorry, though there is no way to do that. Especially with buggies, and the cheaper brands and models even more so there are very few things to actually do with the stroller, the parts are unfortunately given. So you can either keep this one and use it even if with a bit of difficulty, or have it just for the car and malls while getting a different everyday stroller.

P.S. Do not just get a bit bigger wheels; it's the whole frame that is so simple that it makes it so hard to maneuver. Get a one-handlebar, sturdier, a tad larger model if you need something for bumpy roads.

Your -very berry- Eli.

Now, this is your place to ask. I'm listening.
