Inleiding

Follow this guide if you need to replace the handlebars on your BMX bike. Handlebars can become loose or bent in a crash or when the bike is bailed during a particularly gnarly trick, necessitating a replacement or adjustment. The rider may also desire to change their handlebars for functional or aesthetic purposes. This guide will show you how to replace or adjust the handlebars on your BMX style bike.

Note that if you just need to adjust the bars, you can loosen but not remove the bolts as shown in Step 2. Then pick back up at Step 7 to seat and tighten your bars in place.

When tightening stem bolts, be sure to tighten in an “X” pattern in order to avoid uneven tension.
