City terrain is tough on strollers. One minute they’re being rolled over cracked sidewalks, and the next, bounced over rocks and roots in Prospect Park — it’s enough to knock any Bugaboo out of alignment.

If your stroller’s squeaking is making heads turn in the library or you’re getting an arm workout just keeping it straight, don’t post it for free on your baby gear swap Facebook page just yet. Head to these local spots to get your stroller repaired, and you’ll be back to smooth strolling in no time.

Bay Ridge Bicycle World
8916 3rd Avenue, Bay Ridge 
718-238-1118
For tune-ups and general maintenance, take your stroller to Bay Ridge Bicycle World. Since the mechanics of a stroller can be similar to a bike, they have the tools and experience to get your stroller back to like-new condition. If your stroller is in need of new wheels or parts, Bay Ridge Bicycle World will do the replacement — you will just have to order the part from the stroller manufacturer beforehand. Prices vary for services, so call ahead before going to the shop.

Heights Kids
93 Pineapple Walk, Brooklyn Heights
718-222-4271
Heights Kids has their own in-house staff member for stroller repairs. An authorized Maclaren service center, the toy store is equipped to handle parts replacements on their line of strollers. For other brands, Heights Kids won’t be able to order parts but will be able to make small adjustments.

Pizzazz Toys & Kids
271 Court St, Downtown Brooklyn
718-797-3177
Pizzazz Toys & Kids in Downtown Brooklyn also has an in-house repair staff to get your stroller fixed — but again, only for Maclaren strollers. Call ahead to make sure the repair technician is available and for pricing details.

Brooklyn Baby World
7302 15th Avenue, Bensonhurst
718-331-9498

For quick maintenance, head to Brooklyn Baby World in Bensonhurst. They won’t be able to do major repairs on your stroller, but for squeaking wheels and other minor tune-ups, this is the spot. The owners and staff are incredibly friendly and they know their stuff when it comes to baby gear.
