    Thanks for your response!!

    A generic procedure to fix the problem is explained below :-

    If a bicycle pulls to one side when you ride it hands off, the fork is bent. To prevent this, once a year, or whenever the fork binds or clicks as you steer, inspect and grease the bearings. If any bearings are worn, pitted, or discolored, replace them all.

    Each set of bearings rides between a cup and a cone. The balls may be loose or held in a frame called a cage. Tightening the upper cone will eliminate play in both sets of bearings. If the top cone is set too tight, the fork will bind and be hard to turn. Tightening the locknut may cause the cone to rotate too, requiring its readjustment.

    Remove handlebar and temporarily hang bar on frame. Unscrew locknut, which may be either a hexagonal nut or a slotted C-nut. Take the fork and clamp it the edge of a flat surface, and using a board and hammer, hit it a few times gently to get it back into shape like the other side of the fork. Stand the fork upright and check to see if the fork is now straight. If not, hit the frame with gentle pressure with a hammer a few more times until straightened. The trick is not to remove the paint from the bicycle.

    If some paint does chip off, sand, prime and re-paint the areas.

    Lift off locknut and headlamp bracket if any. You may then disconnect the cables to free handlebar completely or let bar remain hanging from frame. Unscrew top bearing cone and remove upper bearings. Replace pitted or flattened bearings with a new set of the same size. Clean old grease from parts with kerosene.

    Holding frame tightly to fork, lay bike on its side atop newspapers. Separate fork and frame, catching loose bearings in folds of paper. Clean cup and cone. If bearings are not worn or damaged, clean each set of them separately in kerosene. Dry them between the palms of your hands or in clean, lint-free toweling.

    Fill the lower bearing cup with multipurpose grease, sold in bicycle shops. Press the correct number of bearings well into the grease so that they will not fall out.

    Spread grease on bearing cone and lower the cycle frame over the fork column, being careful not to dislodge any of the bearings. Inspect and clean any balls that drop.

    Partially fill top cup with bicycle grease and install upper bearings, taking care to install the right size and number of balls and not to drop or damage any of them.

    Grease top cone and screw it on finger tight. Replace bracket and locknut. Adjust cone to eliminate all play. Tighten locknut, check for binding. Readjust if necessary. Now replace the handlebars the same way you removed them and tighten and adjust to height desired. Dropping your bicycle on the ground will cause the fork to become damaged. Stress the importance to your children, that using a kickstand, prevents this from happening. Also, keep from hitting curbs or other objects while bicycling with the sides of your fork.


    Good Luck!!

    Thanks!!

If the pedals are extremely hard to turn, then bearings are likely dry and need to be removed and lubricated.

    Some of these are adjustable and can turn according to weight. Some have a little nut on them you can turn to relieve pressure. Others are not adjustable and just need to be replace or well lubricated

    If you have an older style 'quill' stem, then you can
    probably adjust the height a little bit. These are old-school, but are
    still often found on cheaper bikes. If the front of the stem doesn't
    have a removeable faceplate that clamps the handlebars, then you
    probably have a quill stem. They go into the fork steerer tube and clamp
    in place with an internal wedge. To adjust them, you loosen the bolt at
    the bend in the stem and raise or lower it to where you want it. Pay
    attention, because there is a 'minimum insertion' mark near the bottom
    of the stem.....make sure that mark isn't exposed. You can set the stem
    height anywhere above that mark.

    If you have a more modern stem,
    it will clamp around the fork tube rather than inside of it. These
    stems usually have 2 bolts to the rear edge that tighten around the
    tube, and on the front they'll have 2 or 4 bolts that clamp the
    handlebar. With this style, you're limited by the length of the fork
    tube. You may see some spacers below the stem or above it....if you have
    those, then you can adjust your stem a little. If not, then the only
    way to change your handlebar height is to buy a fork with a longer (or
    uncut) steerer tube, or to use a different handlebar with a different
    height/bend to it.
