Where the handlebar goes into the frame, there is a nut that goes around the gooseneck loosen that, and below that is a bearing race that you tighten by hand ( it has a knurled edge) tighten that by hand...just enough so there is no play, and then retighten the locknut

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.

HANDLEBAR ADJUSTMENT


Depends on what style of handle bars you have or what you want to do. Do you want to change the handle bars? Change height?Change the angle or stem?

You need to know what kind of headset you have on your bike. Either you have a "Threadless" or a "Threaded" headset. A "Threadless" headset has a star nut wedged in the fork tube and a hex bolt that goes through a plug on the top of your stem down into the star nut to compress everything together. You can easily change stem angle, length and height with a new stem which is realitivly inexpensive. If you have a "Threaded" headset the riser tube and stem are all one piece and it has a split/bolt at the bottom of the riser bar. As you tighten the split/bolt it tries to seperate wedging itself in your fok tube making everything tight. Not as easy to change but just as inexpensive.

Either way or whatever you are doing to your bike you will need a good set of allen keys. Almost every bolt on a bike now is hex head so a set of allen keys is a must.

Locked forks no movement


Sounds like your fork bearings are locked up or the nut just below your handle bar stem is to tight.In any case taking apart the fork and do a quick inspection. Regrease or replace your bearings and your back on track. Excuse the pun.

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.

My daughter wrecked on her Mongoose r2261wm and now the handlebars just spin. We can't see any obvious breaks or loose/missing bolts. We're thinking it must be something inside the fork where the bar goes...


There should be a bolt on the frame at the base of the handle bar stem. There should also be a bolt on the top of the handle bar stem. If these are both tight and secure. The odds are the expansion clamp that's connected to the base of the handle bar (part that goes into the frame) has broken.

Handlebar+Wheel


I am assuming that you have a standard headset type bike, not an AheadSet style head set, where the stem actually works to hold the fork in place.

In standard headsets, the stem has a jam wedge which pulls tight in the fork stem and locks the stem in place.

Is that wedge missing? Is the bolt that extends through the wedge stripped or worn? You may need a new stem to get it to pull tight.

If this does not help you, post more clearly what is going on.

The handle bars slip and tightening the nut doesn't work.


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
