Changing your road bike handlebars isn’t something that you’ll be doing that often, but it’s a super-simple job that you can do at home. Changing your bars is also a great opportunity to check your handlebars and stem out for damage.
All you’ll need is a set of allen keys, a tape measure and some electrical tape. If you have one, use a torque wrench.
Once you’ve changed your handlebars, there are a few more things that you’ll need to do to finish the job. These videos should help:
