Making sure everything is straight
How does everybody make sure that there bar, stem, steering tube is straight? Just by eyesight?
I recently had some my stem changed but I cant seem to get the new one straight!
Maybe I'm being too much of a perfectionist, but I was hoping there was a trick or something!
Try it with one eye closed.
I ain't no newbie
I suppose, if you want to be very accurate, you could align the front and rear wheels with a string line and then measure from the handlebar ends to some point on the frame.........
eyeball it and take an allen wrench with you when you ride. the harder you look the worser it gets .
