How to adjust the handlebars on a bike


To adjust the handlebar position on your Raleigh, loosen the nut on the bottom of the stem extension. Use a 13mm or 14mm wrench, whichever fits. Do not use pliers or Vicegrips! It is upside down, so be careful to turn it counter-clockwise while looking at it from the bottom. To change the handlebar height, you need to loosen the bolt on top of the vertical part of the stem. You may need to tap it with a small hammer to break it loose after it is loosened about 1/4 inch. Now you can adjust the handlebar height, being careful not to exceed the maximum height engraved on the stem. You should also carefully align the bars with the front wheel before tightening the bolt. If you do not understand the terms used here, you should take the bike to a bicycle repair shop.

What kind of oil do I put in my older Raleigh M-60 mountain bike shocks? And how is it done? Thanks


Depends on the shock. different years came with different model shocks. Most of these were not designed to be user serviceable so most likely will not take any oil. Some of the shocks didn't use nay oil but rubber elastomers. This best taken into a bike shop and have them inspect it too see if it is even serviceable. If you don't know how to take apart a shock and reassemble it is not a good project to undertake. You need special tools, special oils, and replacement parts that will cost you far more than the shop will charge to overhaul the fork, plus they know what they are doing. Suspension is complicated and if not done correctly will fail and could most likely cause you too crash.

How do I get a Raleigh Rapide (circa early 1980's) to hook up to this trainer? The rear wheel axle does not have a quick disconnect and I can't remove the axle to replace with the supplied skewer


A QR rear axle CAN be retro-fitted to your wheel by a bike shop and it would make wheel removal for repair much easier. If you DO go this route make sure to get an old-school rounded QR where the handle is not overlapping the end of the axle.

Like this: http://bicycle.guidestobuy.com/bicycle-components/shimano-dura-ace-hb7800-quick-release-2/

Just the same, won't the trainer grip the (assumed) nuts holding your wheel? It might mar the insides but I would think it would hold.

I just looked at the hardware on my old-school trainer and I think it would accomodate a 9/16" or 5/8" nut. I don't own any standard wheels to check it with.

Rear axle broken on Raleigh road bike, can i/ how do i replace it


Is it the axle in the hub or a skewer (quick release) that is broken? If it is the skewer, those can be replaced. If it is the hub (with a through-axle), then you would do best to buy a new wheel.

Tires I bought are too thick to fit in between my forks


sure you can get new forks just make sure the inside width of the forks will hold your tire and that the radius of the wheel from the axle to the outer edge is smaller than the inside length of the forks

Does anyone know if all of the components from a 2000 year model Raleigh Serengeti Mountain bike will fit on a 2006 Trek 4500 frame? I am looking at upgrading to a lighter frame, but like the components on...


They ought to. Bicycle components are quite universal. You may run into a part or two which won't fit (front derailleurs have to fit frame design [especially on full-suspension bikes] as well as tube diameter), and you must bear in mind that the geometry of the new frame will most assuredly be different, so your handlebars and stem may no longer be familiar or comfortable to you. Good luck!

Fork is too narrow for front wheel


One solution, is a large, wedge shaped piece of wood.
Try hammering that into, or the forks onto it.
That should open them up, without damaging the finish.
Good luck with that.

Can i fit forks from a different bikes


Yes, forks can be swapped in some cases. First, the diameter of the replacement forks must be the same as the old forks. The length of the forks will need to be close to the original also. Often the entire wheel and brake assembly must change also because the brake hub from a Honda will not fit Suzuki forks. The speedometer may also be a factor because the old cable may not fit the new hub.

Try a salvage yard. Google " motorcycle salvage suzuki " and see what you can find/

Can I get a “very helpful” rating on this answer? < And it doesn’t cost anything extra!
