Faulty break (and future designs improvements)

I bought the mountain buggy swift in August 2016. It is a great stroller, very small and compact and easy to manage on both outdoor trails and shopping/street strolling. When traveling, the seat reclining option makes it easy for your child to take a nap and folds up quickly with the touch and twist of one handle. I cannot be happier with the look and the feel.
At around 6 months the break started to falter. As I was strolling through the city the break wouldn't click back into place and the stroller would be half in break mode and making a continuous clicking noise. I tried taking the wheels off to see whether any pebbles had gotten lodged beside the break wires, but even then there seems to be some misalignment with the wire of the break and the break pieces connected to the wire that stop the wheels. I see this as the main issue with the stroller.
The stroller has a water bottle holder, but I would have also liked to have an option for coffee cup.
The storage at the bottom is a bit small, although that is one of the reasons that the stroller is more compact.
