How to make fixed wheels swivel?

Marichou77 • 09 Nov 2023

Hi, I bought a Baby Merc S6 stroller. I didn't realize that the wheels are fixed. Do you know if there is a way to make them mobile? Because it makes the walks painful for my shoulders. Thank you for your help. Marie-Helene

Hi, Marie-Helene,

Unfortunately, there is nothing you can do. To make wheels swivel, the frame would have to be designed completely differently. So my best advice is to change the pram (sell and buy a different one, even if second-hand), or somehow get used to it - there is no remedy to fix fixed wheels.

Your -very berry- Eli.

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