Steering too lose


From the images I have seen of the bike the loose steering could be resolved by tightening the allen screw (hex key) in the goose neck. If you were sitting on your bike and looking at the handle bars, just below where the handle bars adjust, pivot forward or back, there is an allen head bolt going down. Tightening up this bolt should tighten your steering. Some bikes have a standard bolt headed bolt to tighten the steering. Good luck!

The stem is loose when im riding but i tightend the L key on the top tight as possible n neck still loost any idea?


There are typically two allen bolts that mount on the side of the handlebar stem. Those should be tightened. The top one should only be tightened to remove up and down play in the headset. If you tighten the top one too tight, steering will feel clunky. Only tighten the top one tight enough to remove the up/down play. Use the side bolts to keep the handlebars from turning relative to the wheel.

Stripped threads in accessory holder for cannondale ultra.. How do I remove old ones and install new.. Drink holder won't tighten down due to bad threads.. Any ideas


I am assuming you are talking about the bolts in the frame for the water bottle holders. You can take it to the bike shop and have them install a "Rivnut." This entails drilling out the frame boss that is stripped, and installing a Rivnut with is a rivet that is threaded for a specific size, in this case, the same size for cage bolts. Or you could order the kit and tools yourself, but then you would be left with extra Rivnuts and tools.

My 1998 Schwinn Moab steering head is loose and clunky. When I ride it the steering head clunks and very hard to keep straight. This happened after swapping out the handle bars and I had to put a 2"...


Without seeing this I can't say for sure but it sounds like a bearing is shot or a washer is missing from the neck. What is confusing me is you said you just replace the handle bars and the would not require removing the neck. If you have more information I will keep an eye out for your response.

Motobecane handlebars need tightening


If they are tuning left and right the the center bolt on the top of the goose neck will do it. If they are loose at the goose neck and moving forward and backward then you need to tight the bolt underneath at the point the bars are in the neck. If you can't tighten it anymore you have two choices but you must first determine if it is the handle bars or the goose neck that is stripped. If it is the handle bars then replace them and if it is the goose neck replace that. The other think you can do is make a shim from a piece of metal and wrap it around the bar and tighten the goose neck on that again.

How do i tighten a loose screeching belt on an '01 accent gs 1.6L


The belt is adjusted by the position of the alternator. Loosen the bottom mounting bolts. Loosen the adjusting bolt in the top bracket & using a suitable lever, pry the alternator outwards until the belt is tight. Do not tighten it too tight. you should be able to deflect the belt down about 3/4 -1" when tightened. Hold the bar to maintain this tension on the belt and tighten the top adjusting bolt. Re-tighten the two bottom bolts. Check the deflection of the belt once more to ensure it is not to tight.

Fitted tiagra triple to cannondale caad9 frame. bottom bracket creaking


There are many possible causes for the noise you're hearing, but the most common source of creaks is loose crank arms.

You might be able to eliminate the sound by tightening the crank arms on the bottom bracket spindle. However, I would recommend removing both crank arms from the spindle and reinstalling them after lubricating the surfaces where the spindle and crank arm meet as well as the crank arm bolts. Use a high quality grease (not oil, such as Triflow) or anti-seize compound.

Torque the crank arm bolts to the factory spec. Crank arms bolts can take a lot of torque -- about 300 ft/lbs. Most people don't have a torque wrench, so you can "guesstimate" this by applying about 50 lbs of force on the end of a 6" long wrench.

Other possibilities are loose chainrings (check each bolt where they are attached to the crank), pedals (lubricate/service bearings), bottom bracket (check it is properly torqued), chain (look for tight links), derailleur idler gear, crack in frame.

I need to raise the handlebar height on my 26" bike.


On the neck, the bolt would be at the top, dead center, screwed down inside the neck. Loosen it about 5 full revolutions. Then take a hammer and tap it back down. Lift the handlebar to desired height, and hold it there 'til tight. Also while it's a little loose turn it clockwise/counter clockwise, to make the bar straight (while holding the front wheel) before fully tightening. Then your done! Glad to help. Best wishes to you.

Chain


Put it up on your stand lossen the axel and remove the bolt on the bottom of the shock. Then tighten your chain and lift your swingarm up until its horizontal with the ground, then the chain should have almost no play. Not completely tight, but almost no play. Tighten the axel, and the bolt on the shock, and your set,,,
