should i replace the handle bar or try to correct it in a local shop?
since i think i automatically adjusts to the bent handlebar so can't make out the difference?is it dangerous to have a bent handle bar?
Yes you are very much in danger if you are riding with bent handlebar . First make sure forks and cone set is not damaged and bike is going in straight line .
2> Always replace bent handlebar/fork pipes / T / clip on's as no matter how hard you try there no way it will be in perfect shape after repairs .
