Okay, I admit it, I'm not very mechanically inclined, but I will at least try to do some things myself. I'd like to do the handlebar adjustment like others here have done to give me a more relaxed riding position, but I'm stuck on one thing: how do you remove the 4 chrome "caps" over the four bolts that hold the bar in position?

For those little suckers I ususally use an exacto blade and VERY slowly slide the blade in from the top and wiggle it til I get one edge loose and then pop it off. Don't try and pry it off with a flat head screw driver or you will put a ding in it. Don't ask me how I know that.

Pain in the butt, but with a little patience you can pry them off. you need to find anything resembling a dentist pick. I actually took a really small flat blade screwdriver and didn't damage them. They are just plastic and will mar very easily. The good thing is that if you ruin them, they are really cheap.
