Edited by Thor, Crystal, Eng
Method 1: Angle
Hello, and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to adjust the handlebars on a mountain bike or touring bike.
For this you will need an Allen Key, size 5.
In order to raise the handlebars, you will need to loosen this bolt.
Once this is loosened, I can now raise and lower the handle bars according to my body size.
If you want to move the handlebars from side to side, loosen these nuts here.
You can now move the handlebars from side to side.
In order to reposition them, you should line them up exactly with the wheel.
It's very important that the handle bars are not off to either side as this will cause problems with cycling.
When you're satisfied, tighten the bolts with the Allen Key, take the bike out for a ride and see if you feel comfortable with the new adjustments.
That is how to adjust the handlebars on a mountain bike or touring bike, if you have any questions or comments please leave them in the comment box below.

Hello and welcome to VisiHow. Today I'm going to show you how to adjust the handlebar grips on a mountain or touring bike.
The first thing you need is a size 5 Allen Key.
With the Allen Key, you're going to loosen the bolt on the bottom of the handlebar.
After you loosen the bolt, you can adjust the handlebar until you are satisfied with its position.
Adjust the opposite handlebar to the same position to ensure balance and correct posture.
You'll want to sit on the bike to see if it feels right for you. When you're happy, tighten the bolt.
Now you're ready to go.
