I saw a post on this a little bit ago, but I coudn't find it.

I was riding yesterday over some pretty rough stuff. When I got finished for the day I looked at my handlebars which were straight and my wheels were crooked. My first reaction was, oh shit I bent a tie rod, but they both look fine.My only other thought was that I either stripped the steering stem or I twisted it. What do you guys think? Should I just adjust the tierods and call it good? Do you think my denton steering stabilizer had anything to do with this?

Nope, pretty much narrowed 2 the stem from the way it seems

my friend flipped mine on its side and it slowly rolled over on the bars. after that i noticed that my bars were not straight when riding :mad:. couldn't see anything wrong till i removed the pitman arm from the bottom of the stem and had somebody slowly turn the bars. the end of the shaft was making a half moon and not straight. give that a shot and see if it is bent. hope that helps

i would thinks so, but if things are bent i wouldn't chance having it break at the worst possible moment.
