@Jay S No an adjustment is changing the state of something. if you tighten a loose bolt you are changing its state... its pretty simple

@The Barbeque Authority erm, nope. Adjusting something would be to move individual components. That hasn't happened here. He's simply tightened an Allen bolt to stop said components adjusting themselves. He hasn't actually moved anything.

if you "tighten" something you are "adjusting" it and if something is too "loose" it can easily "move" or "adjust" itself without warning.

Once when i was like 14 i was cruising like 30-35 mph down a big road called greenway outside vegas. These kids slightly older (old enough to drive) took note of me hauling ass and implored me and at some point got next to me and held a lit joint they were almost done with out the window. I took the risk and slowly got about a foot away from the car and they successfully passed it. I toked on it while hauling ass one handed and the excitement between everyone was so wholesome. I felt pretty cool considering i was a loser 🤣

If you kids ever get the chance to have a gander at Claude Lelouch's amazing non-dialogue short (16minute?) film about the 1965 Tour de France, there is a segment when, leading up to a bunch sprint, some riders are seen taking spanners to raise their seat posts, and hammers and spanners to drop their stems...... Dropped seat posts? Nothing new. "Pour un Maillot Jaune." Really, have a look.

Meanwhile at Amazon, you're obliged to hold the safety pipes while walking down the stairs to prevent possibility of potential fall lol I mean I'm amazed that it is legally possible to do such a risky stuff in any professional area. To me this seems much riskier than sitting on the tube during a descent. EDIT: I don't mean it in bad way, this is just breathtaking.

Fun fact: "Don't try this at home" just means don't do this yourself. It's a phrase that came from the early days of TV. You aren't meant to take all phrases literally. You wouldn't take the phrase "its raining cats and dogs" literally. You can't "sweat like a pig" as they don't even have sweat glands.

I'm not understanding why this is something you wouldnt try. Being that these are professional riders, who could probably ride no handed while drinking something or texting (i know i sure can), twisting a little allen wrench on a bolt seems like a very trivial and easy task.
