Remove the bolt and put a lock washer between the bolt and head. That or put some blue loctite on the threads. Just remember to have the head removed from the fork tube before the bolt comes out or the expander will come off in the forks.

Adjust front brakes bike


At the brake handle end of the cable, on the handle bars, ther may be an adjuster that thread into the brake handle from the end of the black portion of the cable. Thread it all the way in and then turn it 2 full turn back out.
Break the nut loose that the brake cable wire goes through.
Inspect that you do in fact have usable brake pad material on the pads.
Squeeze the caliper by lifting the lever towards the black part of the cablewhile pulling on the cable to keep it tight and tighten nut.

My 1998 Schwinn Moab steering head is loose and clunky. When I ride it the steering head clunks and very hard to keep straight. This happened after swapping out the handle bars and I had to put a 2"...


Without seeing this I can't say for sure but it sounds like a bearing is shot or a washer is missing from the neck. What is confusing me is you said you just replace the handle bars and the would not require removing the neck. If you have more information I will keep an eye out for your response.

How much slack should be in the chain


If you tug on the chain in the middle of the guide, the guide teeth should come out of the guide bar groove with a gap of about 1 - 2 mm (about 1/16 inch). This is from the Ryobi Users Instruction Sheet, please rate this response.

The clamp for the handle bars of the Radio Flyer Tricycle do not keep the handle bars aligned correctly. As the child turns the handle bars to steer, the handle bars become misaligned. Any way to solve...


the clamp is far to loos if you can do the bolt up a bit more that will help if you can becouse there is no more thred left on it,,,undo the bolt and put a washer on the bolt under the nut head and do it up tight again if this still dont work the only other thing you could try is undo the bolt that holds the bars on and pull out the bars,,rap some sticky tape around the shaft and push the bars back into the bike then do the nut and bolt up to pinsh the bars up tight,,,

Loose handlebars on a Mongoose XR-75 mountain bike. I tried to tighten them but they still are loose. Help!


Check the splines on the handle bar. Just loosen the "clamp" and slide the bar over to one side enough so you can tell if the are stripped or not. If they are then replace the bar, if not then reassemble and try to put a littlle extra torque on the bolt.

I have noticed with the 2 of these bikes that I have that the bars do not like to stay tight for long, they tend to work thier way loose about every other time we use them. I just keep tightening them untill the splines strip, then pick up a new bar.

Contact Mongoose for parts info at: www.Mongoose.com under "about" click ask mongoose.

Good luck.

The housing of my brakes on the handle bars is loose and keeps moving. how do i tighten it so that it stops moving when i apply pressure on it and/or squeeze the brake lever??


If the screw is all the way tight and still slipping ... try to find a fatter part of the handle bar to mount the grip to. You will probably will not find any such that is convenient for you to continue to use the brake ... remove the grip, wrap some electrical tape around the handle bar, reattach the grip. Tighten it and give it a try.

I hope this works for you

Tightening of handle bars on a bike. Never had a bike before and just got one off ebay and have had to bulid it. But the handle bars (the downward shaft part) keeps moving.


should be a counter sunk allan bolt on the back side of the handle bar facing downwards . set the handle bar as to were they fell comfortable and turn the bolt clock wise until tight.

My daughter wrecked on her Mongoose r2261wm and now the handlebars just spin. We can't see any obvious breaks or loose/missing bolts. We're thinking it must be something inside the fork where the bar goes...


There should be a bolt on the frame at the base of the handle bar stem. There should also be a bolt on the top of the handle bar stem. If these are both tight and secure. The odds are the expansion clamp that's connected to the base of the handle bar (part that goes into the frame) has broken.

Tricycle loose handle bars.


You need to install a shim so the bolt has more to clamp on. To do this, loosen the bolt you have been tightening enough that you can pull the handlebars out, then about 3 or 4 more turns. Get an empty soda can and with a pair of scissors, stab into the side of the can near the bottom and cut off the bottom end. Then cut about 2 inches up and cut around the can so you have a roughly 2 by 5 inch strip of aluminum. This is your shim (you may have to trim some length if it doesn't fit). Wrap it around the bottom part of the handlebars where it will go back into the part where the bolt is. Make sure you wrap it tight or it will be hard to put in. Slide the handle bar with the shim on it back into the other tube and tighten the bolt. The end.

Loose Oven door handle


Ok you need to use plastic or rubber washers against the glass so it doesn't break. To stop the handle comming loose again you need to put "Lock Tight" on the screw threads then tighten carefully only untill the handle isn't loose. You can get this from any good hardware store. cheers
