? handlebars and front wheel not lined up

Recommended Posts

Loosen the triple clamps twist them back.

This happens to me every once and a while. It's the forks that are actually twisted in the clamps.

Most times you do not need to loosen anything. Your forks are just "twisted"

You can sometimes just hold the front wheel between your legs and twist the bars to straighten them back up. If that doesn't work, put the front wheel against an immovable object like the wheel of your truck or edge of the garage door.

If you have taken a big spill and have twisted them severely, you may need to loosen stuff up.

Good luck and ride safely.

the forks don't twist in the triple clamps. the inner fork leg twists in the outer fork leg.

kick the front wheel in the direction you want it to go. it'll take some fine tuning but you'll get it straight.
