I have searched the net but can't see anything and need to replace mine on my 3 wheeler.

The foam is applied in the factory beofre the pushchair is assembled.

we ended up using pipe lagging as for plumbers as well! grin with a bit of handlebar tape-stuff we got in the bike shop!

Could you use [ racquet grip] used on tennis/badminton racquets?

Mine's gone as well. The shop I bought it from want £35 for a new handle. Apparently the chassis is guaranteed for 12 months but the rest only 6 hmm. Forgive me for pushing it using the handlebar...

how very silly of us all to use the handles.
In fact my ds2 took a huge bite out of our tandem handlebar hmm
I found myself wrestling the navy foam out of the little horror's mouth and sticking it back with superglue (the foam, not the childs mouth. Didn't think of that one at the time) grin

Thanks for the suggestions. I would never have thought of all that! Every pram I have ever owned has had foam on the handlebar and ends up with chunks out of it.
If its of any interest to anyone you can get replancement foam for stroller handles.
