handlebar won't stay put, suggestions?
After a good 1 or 2 of riding my handlebar comes loose at the top of the stem and starts twisting around, before i know it my break levers are in the completely wrong position. Any suggestions on how to remedy this? i've tightened the allen screw as much as i dare for fear of stripping.
I had same problem with my seat and i used some locktight on it, seems to have worked should i try the same thing on the handlebar stem?
I had the same problem and took it back to the builder. He said the Nitto handlebar was bent and had I been off-roading with my touring bike. Well, yes. He sold me a new handlebar at his cost and I replaced the h-bar. No more twisting. Try a new handlebar.
Or is it???
Take 5mm allen wrench and tighten the stem plate bolts down.
is slower than you
Any chance you're using a road bike stem designed for 26.0 mm bars?
