I just put new handlebars on, and the front brake cable is really tight and i think i might have gotten air in it somehow bc they arent worrking fully.... do i need to bleed them? and i know how to but i've never done fronts... do i have to do them at the same time? or do one then the other?

If you didn't have the lines loose, then you shouldn't have to bleed them. I don't know what could have happened, but if you think they need bled, start with the one furthest away from the master cylinder and then do the other one. Do them one at a time.

Hmm... when i re-did my front brakes i had air in the lines- but they felt extremely loose until i bled them.

Could your brake cable be a little tight? Maybe new handle bars are higher up causing less slack?
