When you tighten the nut on the handlebar be sure the nut does not turn the bolt you may have to hold the bolt with a vice grip

If you are sure it is as tight as you can get it and the handle bar moves you may have to losten it and put a shim between the handlebar and the clamp throat

Also, the handlebar does go down into the forks this controls the side to side movement of the handle bars when you tighten this bolt it keeps the unit tight into the forks

Raising handle bars

Right in the center of the handle bars you will find a nut ( usually allen key) that is in line with the tube going down/attached to the fork of the bicycle. Loosen this nut and unscrew it for about 5mm - don't remove it completely. Take a mallet and hit the nut firmly on its head to force it back the 5 mm unscrewed. It should release the tapered lock inside the tube and the handles can be adjusted. If it is still stuck, unscrew the nut more and repeat the process. After adjustment tighten the nut firmly, while holding the handles in position. It will lock again as it is getting tightened. Make sure it is secure by "clamping" the front wheel between your legs while trying to move the handles in any direction. Handle movement should not be possible when applying moderate to strong force. However, excessive force will result eventually in movement and or damage to the front wheel and is therefor not required.

I need to change my front forks on a motobecan elite fs

On my old bikes, I would first remove the handlebars by loosening the bolt in the center of the bar, and tapping on it to release the catch. Then the bar will lift off.
Then the fun begins. With a large slip joint pliers, loosen the knurled ring holding the bearing. Be ready for all the little bearing balls to escape, have the bike lying down on a towel or something to catch them if they are not contained in a cage. Lots of fun.
Once the knurled nut is fully off, the whole thing comes apart.
To get all the little bearings back in, use petroleum jelly, silicone grease, or such to hold them in place. Tighten the knurled bearing retainer just enough to hold the bearings, not too tight. Then there may be a lock nut, which you discovered earlier.......

Huffy stalker 18 speed, I can't tighten the stem.

If you are talking about the handle-bar stem, the bolt you need to tighten is right in the middle of the post. It may have a snap-on plastic cover over it. This will be the head of a long bolt that reaches down inside of the stem where the nut is shaped as a wedge that serves to tighten inside the tube of the front fork. If you are talking about the the seat-post, then your seat-post might be of too small diameter.This page shows a good picture of the handle-bar stem bolt and wedge nut.

I just purchased a Protocol 1 bike. I need to raise the handle bars. What is the procedure? Thank you for time. Carter McFall

Loosen up the goose neck in the center of the handle bars. There is a bolt there. Directly under that bolt you will see a large nut. Get a pair of channel locks or a crescent wrench and loosen up that nut and you should be able to push up or pull down to loosen the handle bars and change the height. Once you get them where you want them, remember to tighten up the large nut as well as the bolt on the goose neck.

I feel like I'm missing something. I can not attach the handlebars to the bike. I have one long screw, a bolt and some small black cylinder cut on an angle. The instructions are not helpful because...

the cylinder cut on an angle is what the long bolt should bolt to, put the cylinder below the handle bars, and drop the long nut down through the handle bars and into the cylinder, ( the hole in it should be threaded,) only start the bolt so it hangs onto the cylinder, then feed that into the top of the neck hole, where the handle bars slide into,, once the desired height is ok,, tighten that bolt, the cylinder will come up at an angle and tighten the neck and handle bars !! Good Luck

On three occasions my handle bars have freed up relative to the stema nd wheel direction. In other words, my handle bars are not controlling the direction of the wheel - it's almos as if a linkage or...

Stop guessing. You've used up three of your lives....

Search engine "how to adjust threadless stem" for videos.

Is that the stock stem or did someone replace it? It almost sounds like the inside diameter of the stem doesn't match the steerer tube, or something's cracked.

One person had this to say about it... "It was a two-bolt stem, and the problem was that I wasn't tightening the bolts to the same torque setting. If you don't do that, the stem doesn't clamp the bar evenly all the way around, and it will start to slip, and the uneven forces will cause the bolts to loosen.

My huffy stalker fs front wheel and handle bars keep getting off misalgnment

Tighten the bolt that is in the center of the handlebar piece. As well as the nuts/bolts on the lower part of the shaft that comes up and connects to the handle bars. Hard to explain. But just align things right, and tighten everything up on the entire wheel/handlebar assembly.

I fell on my bike and the handlebars and stuck to the right side.

Depending on the bike, you will most likely have a nut at the top of handlebar stem or two socket screws at the side of the stem that grip the front fork. In either case you need to loosen them slightly, reposition the handle bars and then tighten up. Quite often however if you stand in front of the bike with your legs on either side of the front wheel and turn the handle bars their is enough slip to move them back. Be carefull you dont strain anything if you dont back the threads off.

Bicycles Brakes Tightening

Are the brakes center pull or side pull?
Center pull would have a nut directly in the center of the brake. Now go to the brake lever on your handle bars and tighten the turn screw where the cable handle is. Keep turning the nut till your brakes grip.
If you have side pull brakes. Then where the cable meets the breaks. Their is a nut that the cable slides through. Loosen the nut and firmly pull the cable till its tight and retighten the nut.
