Problem with bike after moving - front fork
#1
Hey everybody,

I recently moved and am finally getting around to putting my bike back together. The movers were kind enough to take part of it apart without telling me they were going to, and I don't know how to fix something they did. I'll let the pictures do the talking:

This part was very loose, so I figure that must have something to do with what is wrong:

This is what's wrong: the fork isn't lined up with the handlebars anymore:

Hopefully this makes sense. Basically the fork and handlebars aren't lined up anymore and I don't know how to fix it. Can anybody help?

Thanks in advance,

Tom

There should be two hex bolts on your stem that you can re-tighten once you light the wheel back with the handlebars.

You have an "aheadset" threadless stem.
See Alex's video for instruction:-
