An upper end of the clamping ring is fastened with a handlebar upright tube of the bicycle, wherein the clamping ring provides a pair of lugs, each lug having a threaded hole for engaging with a fastening means, the clamping ring is provided with an inner circumferential tapered surface. The inner ring of the steering bearing is provided with an inner circumferential tapered surface. The pressing ring is provided with an upper outer circumferential tapered surface and a lower outer circumferential tapered surface. The upper outer circumferential tapered surface of the pressing ring is engaged with the inner circumferential surface of the clamping ring. The lower circumferential tapered surface of the pressing ring is engaged with the inner circumferential tapered surface of the inner ring. When the clamping ring is fastened by the fastening means, the pressing ring is caused to move downwards to bring about a downward displacement of the inner ring, which results in a minute fastening of the steering bearing.
