Handlebar not straight

When the handlebar or the stem pole is not aligned with the wheel and fork, the steering of the bicycle feels off, sometimes described as mis-aligned, not straight, unbalanced.

Troubleshooting Steps:

  • Adjust stem position
    • Locate two horizontal pinch bolts on the stem base
    • Untighten the two bolts with 6mm Hex key
    • Straighten the handlebar, so that the folding mechanism is at 45 degree angle
    • Tighten the two pinch bolts on the stem
    • Repeat if needed
