Should my Rans handlebar be so wiggly?
I know the Rans Rocket has handlebars that pivot up and down so it is easy to get on and off the bike, but mine jiggle from side to side I think too much - a few inches at the top. The bar is secure so I'm not worried about it falling off, but it seems like it might be missing a washer. I've tried tighting the quick release, but it won't go any tighter.
Also when the bar is in riding position it rests on the adjustible screw at the bottom. Is it supposed to? It makes an annoying creaking noise and it is too short for me to adjust it any longer for a more upright bar position (assuming that is what it is supposed to do).
I have no owner's manual for it and no shop here has ever seen one before. But what do you want for a barely ridden $250 2000 Rocket...
