Steering column is stiff

Try adjusting the height of the handlebars by loosing the screw in step #5 of this PDF and lifting slightly till it turns freely then tighten it back down:

Kristina Johnson, This may also help, take the column back apart and apply a little/ thin coating of Vaseline on column and reassemble. Good luck.
