Help with handle bar adjustment please?
#1
Hi.

Just got a second hand bike. Bars are in drop down flat racing position. Hubby wants then higher up. There is 2 alan key holes at either side of the angle adjustable stem. I only have 1 alan key. Ive triee both side and tried to turn the alan key both ways and it will not budge!!! Do i need to use 2 alan keys at the same time and turn opposite ways or something?
