The handle bar fails to control the front wheel and we have to adjust the bar every time with resct to the front wheel as it keeps twisting.


Hi Shreyasee:
This does not sound safe!
You don't give a make and model so I can only offer some suggestions that I hope will help.
The part that is attached to the frame that has the handlebars on top and the fork tubes on the sides is called the tripletree.
I'm guessing that the clamps are not hold ing the forks securely. If you straddle the front wheel, can you turn the handlebars from side to side so that the wheel is not pionting the same way as the handlebars? If so, that's where the problem is. Adjust it so it is pointing the right way, and then tighten the clamp bolts so that the forks are secure.
The same thing for the handlebars, only for up and down position.
Let us know how you make out.

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.

Raise handlebars. thank you


loosen the bolt in the center of the handlebar mount, don't remove it, Just very loose, once you've done that you may have to give it a smack to get the bolt to go back down which will release the sleve inside the goose neck , place the front wheel between your legs and work the bars back and forth to loosen them, and raise up on them as your doing this,, once you get the desired height, tighten that bolt back down again

How do you raise the handlebars for the animator first bike by Giant bikes?


David-

To raise or lower the handlebars, first loosen the hex screw on the top of the stem. One or two turns is all that will be necessary. Next, you will need to stand in front of the bike with the front wheel between your legs to brace it, and give the handlebars a forceful twist to the left or right. This action will break the friction of the handlebar stem and the headtube (the headtube is part of the frame where the front forks and the handlebar stem meet...). With the handlebars loosened you can adjust the handlbars up or down. Keep in mind that the stem has only a specific amount of adjustment available...there is a limit to how far it can be extended up, as indicated by a line marked on the stem shaft. Once adjusted to the desired height, check that the handlebars and front fork and wheel are aligned. Tighten the screw in the top of the stem and you're done!

Hope this helps.

WHEN I TURN THE HANDLE BARS THE FRONT WHEEL DOES NOT TURN LIKE IT SHOULD .


The handlebars must be loose. They fit down into the frame of the bike and just where they do there's a ring type nut. Straighten up the front wheel so it aligns with the handlebars and tighten the nut. This should solve your problem.

When the handlebars are turned, the wheel does not turn with them. Kettrike Air Navigator tricycle


  • It sounds like the quill insert is loose. The handle bar connects to the stem, the stem connects to the quill, the quill connects to the steerer tube.
  • while sitting on the bike, tighten the quill adjustment bolt a half turn at a time until the handlebars turn instantly with the front wheel.

I crashed and need to straighten the steering. The front wheel is turning to the left. How do I re-align the handlebars and front wheel?


First, support the bike so that the front wheel is off the ground. Then, loosen (do not remove, just loosen them) the bolts that clamp the fork tubes into the upper and lower triple clamp braces. Loosen the front axle attachments to the fork legs. Now stand in front of the bike and hold the front wheel between your knees and turn the handlebars until they are straight - and re-tighten everything. Also, check the large nut on top of the steering stem, making sure it is tight.

Can't tighten the handlebar stem.


hi lynduck,

are you using a threadless steam or a threaded one?

like this one in the picture.

http://www.sheldonbrown.com/images/headset-threadless.jpg

if so, spacers should be on the right spot and the pinch botls should be tights. top cap should not be moveable and this will make sure your front end turns lightly. apply light axle grease to make it smooth.

regards,
