Pardon these newbie questions- I'm a road biker and haven't mountain biked since the mid-1990s. I've just bought a Trek 6300 and need a bit of advice. The bars are 660mm Bontranger alloy and are too wide. Is there any reason I can't just hacksaw an inch off of each end?
Second, the RS Recon silver fork moves up and down annoyingly when I'm climbing standing in the pedals. Other than locking it out every time I climb is there any other way to mitigate this?
Third, when I lift the front wheel off the ground (say, carrying the bike upstairs) the fork clunks slightly, like the lower forks have a little play in them and are dropping a quarter inch. No big deal, just wondering if that's normal or can be adjusted.
Thanks for your patience and happy to be on the forum!
