Can't control the handlebars. They wobble.


IF you are saying the wobble is side to side then the main bolt that goes from the handlebars to the fork is loose.

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.

The handlebars on my daughters Jubilee seem to have fallen downward. She thinks a bolt securing it has fallen out, but it looks to me that if we tightened the middle with an allen wrench it would secure...


There are two sets of bolts here. The first one is straight up and down, is probably the one that takes and Allen wrench and is the one that tightens the handlebar stem - that's the pipe that goes down into the frae toward the front wheel. At the bottom of that bolt (inside the bike frame where you cannot see it) is a wedge-shaped nut that wedges the stem tight. If the stem is loose, then you will be able to stand in front of the bike with the front wheel between your knees and turn the handlebars side to side, and if it is loose enough you will be able to pull the whole stem right out of the bike. On the other hand, maybe you mean that the handlebars twisted down (so that the ends of the handlebars are pointed toward the ground - this would mean that the other bolt or set of bolts are loose. Some bikes have one bolt that clamps the top of the stem around the handlebars, and some have 4 smaller screws that do this. If this is where the problem is, then no, you don't need to buy the Allen wrench, but it sounds like you might need a bolt.

I feel like I'm missing something. I can not attach the handlebars to the bike. I have one long screw, a bolt and some small black cylinder cut on an angle. The instructions are not helpful because...


the cylinder cut on an angle is what the long bolt should bolt to, put the cylinder below the handle bars, and drop the long nut down through the handle bars and into the cylinder, ( the hole in it should be threaded,) only start the bolt so it hangs onto the cylinder, then feed that into the top of the neck hole, where the handle bars slide into,, once the desired height is ok,, tighten that bolt, the cylinder will come up at an angle and tighten the neck and handle bars !! Good Luck

I cant figure out how to install the handlebar. The owners manual is beyond confusing.


Go to my tips and tricks page. There are links to Huffy's website with on-line assembly instructions and detailed owners manuals.

The handlebars like in this picture attach to a stem (turkey neck shaped thing). There should be an end with a loop and an end with a shaft. The loop end clamps around the handlebar bottom. Just tighten the screw/ screws. The shaft end will have a long bolt and a wedge. The wedge has to be loose but attached to the long bolt. Insert into the hole in the frame, past the limit line and tighten the bolt. Thats it.

How do we keep up the handle bars on a boys disney 16" cars bike


If the handlebars are "slipping" then you need to tighten the bolts on the stem. The stem is the piece that connects the handlebar to the bike itself and usually has 1, 2 or 4 hex headed bolts that hold the handlebar in place. The Park Tool website indicates that you should torque these bolts to 15-20 foot lbs. This is important because the potential for injury is high if the bars slip at the wrong time. If you don't have a torque wrench then take the bike to your local bike shop and let a professional with the proper tool do the work. This is so simple and quick a fix that they may not even charge you
