I took the 50 off the trailer this weekend and the handlebars were all twisted. My boy is only 6, so I doubt he did it, I likely did it when tying it down, but I did the wheel between the knees and straightened them. Couple questions, how do you keep these forks straight? Is there anything to make them sturdier against twisting? Will a stronger triple clamp help?

Also, how do you guys tie them down? Do you attach to the handle bars? Or somewhere else. Any advice is appreciated!

Were the handlebars or the forks twisted?

I use four tie downs, on the handlebars and the foot pegs I haven't had a problem. Could you be pulling down too hard on it?
