Question about Cycling
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.

Take it to a professional bike shop. They have the knowledge and tools to set it right.
Or take a look at this:
The headset nuts were not necessary to be moved for handlebar adjustment. Now the bearing load is too tight. Correct adjustment of the headset requires a delicate balance between tightness and freedom of movement. If your bike has/had the original bearings it's a safe bet they may be due for replacement anyway.
