Expander Mondo Ecco

see 1 parent review

The Expander Mondo in the Ecco version is an affordable, Mondo-line stroller system, featuring a partly leatherette upholstery of the seat unit as well as the carrycot. Thanks to the white chassis equipped with a soft suspension system and air-filled wheels, the stroller can also handle more demanding terrain. The seat unit and the carrycot, together with the stroller’s center of gravity, are elevated so that the Mondo will suit taller parents predominantly.

You can add the carrycot and the seat unit to the chassis in any direction and any position. The spacious carrycot can be inclined for an older baby. The reclinable seat unit is only slightly longer than the carrycot but features with a double pop-out sun visor and a see-through plastic panel. This stroller system comes with a full range of essential accessories. By adding an optional car seat with adapters, the Mondo can be transformed into a travel system.

Your questions about the Expander Mondo Ecco

1)

Welcome! We have our second child in our beloved stroller, but the leatherette part has started to crack and peel on the carrier and the Moses part. Is it possible to buy a new one? Or can it be repaired somehow? Thanks

(From original Hungarian: Üdvözlöm! Második gyereket szolgálja már szeretett babakocsink, viszont a műbőr rész elkezdett berepedezni és lehámlani a hordozón és a Mózes részén is. Lehet hozzá vajon venni újat? Vagy meg lehet valahogy javítani? Köszönöm)

Hiya, Judit,

Stroller spare parts are a hard-to-get commodity overall, and this one even harder, as it is not even a spare part really. My suggestion would be to:

A) either have a tailor sew over the handle a new layer of leather/leatherette
B) get a universal leather or fabric cover, ie. on eBay there are multiple options
C) sew a fabric layer around the push bar yourself.

YOu won't find the original one in any shop, no, which is why my suggestions are an extra accessory made or bought. Good luck!

Hello,

Where can I get an Isofix base for the Mondo Ecco car seat?

Hi,

Well, you don't. The matching car seat ("Carlo") is not the best - I mean, it's a cheaper model and they don't make an Isofix base (read more about car seat/travel system choices in this article).

You'll need to secure it in the car with the safety belt, without the base. Or get a better brand car seat.

Hi there,

Stroller Expander Mondo was a gift for my baby. Its tyres are ruptured. I am struggling to find the right tyre size and inner tube. I checked tyre sidewall for its size and found 12 1/2" x 2 1/4 without its Metric size. I do not know if tyre Metric size is (53-203) or (57-203). I would appreciate it if someone assists me by telling me the right Metric size of the rear tyre and inner tubes as well as the front tyre and inner tube.

Many thanks in advance.

Kind Regards

Mr Khan

Hello, Mr. Khan,

the size you're looking for is 57-203 e.t.r.t.O. (ETRTO) Metric size for this type of rear wheel(s) (but the other size you mention would probably fit as well). Also good to know is that inner tubes often sold for the Tako brand will also fit these wheels as well.

The front 10" tire should be ~ 48-188 (but you didn't mention what is written on the front wheel, sot this is approximate). You should know the inside tubes fit more sizes of the tire casing, so it is not that much of a difference, actually, if you'd take something very similar to that, it should fit.

I do recommend, however, rather visit a better bike shop - they can help you with the right size as well as fitting it to the wheels.

Hello, where can I buy 2 front wheels for the Expander Mondo?
I live in the Netherlands.
Kind regards,
Ireen Offerman

Hello there, I would certainly try contacting either any seller of this brand and model in your country - they should be able to order them as a spare part directly from the manufacturer. If there is no Expander distributor around you, then I'd recommend writing directly to the manufacturer and asking him about the possibility of ordering the front wheels as a spare part (you can even describe the problem you have with them). They should be capable of sending (or selling) you the wheels.

Resarvedeler til mondo (EN translation: Spare parts for Mondo)?

Hello, for any spare parts, you will need to contact the manufacturer of this model. Try here: https://expander.czest.pl/kontakt/, I would probably write in English, however.
