Hey guys!

I have such a beginner question. But that's exactly what I am. I need to change the clip-on handlebar cause it broke. I need to remove the steering stem head nut. My question is what tool should I use to remove it and what size?

When I had to change one at the side of the road, I got a strong friend to bring me the replacement part, and then he supported the bike on the side stand while I took the front wheel out, and dropped the fork down, to get the new handlebar in. I have no idea why we had to do it this way, but that's the way we did it for some reason.

Can't see why the top bit can't be taken off for an easy repair though, it's just a 19mm nut, yeah?

Thanks for the reply.

I don't know the size but I use an adjustable wrench and some painters tape to protect the steering stem finish. That puppy came right out!
