How to tighten steering

      I have a specialized roll elite. It has written on the side to tighten to 6nm. I’ve tightened the headset bolt up to 12 nm’s and still it’s loose.

      I had a Scott road bike that unless I turned the handlebar it would not move.

      I would like to make the steering stiff. Everytime I let go of the handlebar the bike goes sideways. On the kickstand it won’t stay straight which causes it to fall. Is there a way to fix it?

      Is it that I need a whole new headset system?

      If I keep tightening am I going to break it?

      You’ve got to loosen the stem. Then tighten the top cap. And then retighten the stem. Lots of youtube videos. Look it up!

      And, lose the kickstand.

      Thank me later.
