I think we need a lot more information.

Is the handlebar attached to the stem? Is the headset/fork threaded or threadless?

BTW, why didn't your dealer assemble the bike?

Sounds like you've got a part missing - the stem.

What brand of bike is it? You could search the net for a picture of the bike, and it should be obvious which part is missing.

Good luck!
