New to bikes- Need help with moving handlebars.
Hello, reader. I am in need of some help!
I recently purchased a new (used) bike, an old Browning road bike. I love it to death, but I've run into a few issues. Loose things here, the breaks hugging too close to the wheel, etc. And I was able to figure everything out with some common sense and expirimenting, except for the trouble with the handlebars.
They turn out of allignment with the wheel, so they are crooked, and I can't steer. I've tried snooping around, looking to see where I need to tighten something, but I can't find anything that seemed to work.
I'm very, very new to bike mechanics, but I really want to learn. If someone would be willing to give me some ideas as to how I could fix this, I would be overjoyed. I look forward to hearing from you!
