Adjust Handle Bar Reach (Optional)

The GT comes with additional adjustment on the handlebars to allow for smaller and larger riders. By default the handlebars are set in an optimum position for the majority of riders. For smaller or larger riders follow these steps:

  1. Loosen the hex bolt on the front of the handlebars until the handlebar is free to move.
  2. Rotate the handlebar towards the rider for a shorter reach, or away for a longer reach.
  3. Fully tighten the hex bolt when the desired position has been reached.
  4. Ensure the handlebars are fully tight, check regularly. Important!
