I just got my new bike about a 2 weeks ago and when I barspin I feel like my bars are spinning a lot slower than my other bikes is this because my headset is too tight or because it just needs to be broken in?

If you haven't adjusted anything from when you bought it, it probably just needs to be worn in, it happened to me when i bought my bike in 2010 the cranks couldn't rotate smoothly. I didn't adjust anything and they wore in after around 3 weeks riding.

hold the bike off the ground or at least the front end and give the bars a good spin. they should spin freely around a few times depending how hard you spun them around. if not, then it is too tight.

Alright guys thanks. And if I leave the headset too tight then what would happen?
