Should be a counter sunk allan bolt on the back side of the handle bar facing downwards . set the handle bar as to were they fell comfortable and turn the bolt clock wise until tight.

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!

Im having a problem alighning the handle bars on my hammer jack how can i tighten them up?


The gooseneck, which is the piece that attaches directly to the handlebars.
If you look at it, you will see It has one bolt that doesn't clamp the bars to it. Tightening that bol will keep make yout handlebars stay aligned with your forks.

How do you raise the handle bars on a mongoose scorch bike?


there should be an allen wrench bolt on top of the handle bar shaft. loosen that but not to much because you dont want the tightening nut to fall off. now put the front tire between your legs and try to wiggle the handle bars back and forth while pulling up if it does not move try loosening it a little more and take off the first bolt on the shaft and that should work. i hope this helped you

i have been told that bike shops sell replacement foam for bike handle bars, maybe this would be a suitable replacement as they do al different sizes. there are also sellers on ebay that sell relacement foam for pushchairs. i'm going to look at my bike shop first as i need some for a bugaboo cameleon!

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
