Inspecting and adjusting your stem
Your bike’s stem is a small part that does an important job. It’s the connective piece that attaches your handlebar to your bike’s steerer tube, which is attached to your fork. Without this crucial connection, you wouldn’t be able to steer your bike’s front wheel in the direction you want to go.
⚠ WARNING: An improperly adjusted or tightened stem can cause you to lose control and fall. Make sure the stem is positioned and tightened properly before riding the bicycle.
Incorrectly installing a stem on a carbon steerer tube can cause damage to the steerer tube. A damaged steerer tube could break suddenly, causing a crash resulting in injury or death. Consult your bike shop if you have any questions.
