Hi! I recently got a used Schwinn Woodlands (from the early 90s, I think?) from Craigslist to ride to class. Unfortunately, I'm still rather rusty at riding and I had a pretty awful fall today. Sprained my hand and elbow and scraped up my leg.
I also got my back brake jammed in my wheel and somehow twisted my handlebars (so they pointed to the left when I had the wheel straight). My bike-savvy friend fixed the brake for me, but when we unscrewed the bolt in the handlebars, we were unable to screw it back in.
We can see the hole it should go in and the screw has threads, but it won't go. The handlebars are pushed in as far as they can go. Does anyone know what's going on? Thank you!
