Question about Cycling
Without more info, I can't tell if you mean you have a loose head-set (that's the vertical tube that holds the bearings that turn when you steer), or if you have a mountain bike with springy front forks and the springy part is loose. If it's the springy part, you'll probably have to replace the whole front fork. If's it just a loose headset, you can tighten it pretty easily. Look at the top of the headset while you turn the handlebars back and forth (as if steering). Looking at the top of the headset you will see (from bottom to top) a knurled ring, a washer, and a large nut. The nut is a lock-not which is isolated from the knurled ring by the washer. The washer has a tab on the inside that prevents it from rotating. Tighten up the knurled ring by hand (you might have to lift up on the handlebars a bit to take the pressure off of it). Don't over-tighten the knurled ring or you won't be able to steer. Then tighten the lock nut with a wrench. Good luck
