I'm going to the baby show on Friday and hoping to buy a bee. Have they sorted the wheels out yet?

Thanks

I have a Bee Plus with the wheel problem, I bought it in 2010. Bugaboo have sent me some metal washers to put on the wheels and they are perfect now. I assume all new ones come with them already on. I love my Bee! It's not perfect but suits my city life really well. I bought it for my DD when she was 18 months and i'm now using it with my new DS, just changed the hood, seat liner, bought a cocoon and it's like a new pushchair.

There were two issues afaik, first off, the wheels were shimmying etc. so they changedthem to a plastic bearing instead of metal.
I'm not sure which models this affected.

Secondly the plastic bearings made the wheels lock spontaneously at times so they sent out new wheels to existing owners;

this is all I know. I've just ordered a 2009 Bee new from Mothercare so will see how it handles.
