I need to raise the handlebar height on my 26" bike.

There are so many screws and the owner's manual doesn't give me instructions on which screw needs to be loosened to raise it!!! Its a coaster brake model - - any ideas?

On the neck, the bolt would be at the top, dead center, screwed down inside the neck. Loosen it about 5 full revolutions. Then take a hammer and tap it back down. Lift the handlebar to desired height, and hold it there 'til tight. Also while it's a little loose turn it clockwise/counter clockwise, to make the bar straight (while holding the front wheel) before fully tightening. Then your done! Glad to help. Best wishes to you.

I need to heighten handlebars


In the center right below the handlebars is and allen head screw. You will need an allen wrench, loosen the screw by turning it counter clockwise. Lift-up on the handlebars and adjust to the desired height and re-tighten the hex screw. Be carefull not to raise up beyond the lower adjoining yoke line on the goose neck.

Own a Realm bicycle about two years old. Want to raise handle bars. Doesn't look like there is a post to do so. How do I raise


http://www.sheldonbrown.com/handsup.html
Getting Riser Bars or simply flipping the stem over or getting one with a different rise and reach might give you the added height you need. If you LIKE the handlebars, the stem is the best and least-invasive option as most new ones come with front loaders (detachable front caps) that allow replacement without stripping components off one side of the handlebar. In minutes a Bicycle Shop could swap any number of them onto your bike for you to try.

If you had purchsed the bike at a reputable Bicycle Shop they would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

How do you raise the handlebars for the animator first bike by Giant bikes?


David-

To raise or lower the handlebars, first loosen the hex screw on the top of the stem. One or two turns is all that will be necessary. Next, you will need to stand in front of the bike with the front wheel between your legs to brace it, and give the handlebars a forceful twist to the left or right. This action will break the friction of the handlebar stem and the headtube (the headtube is part of the frame where the front forks and the handlebar stem meet...). With the handlebars loosened you can adjust the handlbars up or down. Keep in mind that the stem has only a specific amount of adjustment available...there is a limit to how far it can be extended up, as indicated by a line marked on the stem shaft. Once adjusted to the desired height, check that the handlebars and front fork and wheel are aligned. Tighten the screw in the top of the stem and you're done!

Hope this helps.

I would recommend you get used to the position that yields a careful compromise between aerodynamics and uprightness when needed.

How do I tighten the stem bolt on the handlebar stem?


If you just need to raise the height of the stem, all you need to do is loosen the hex nut at the top of the handlebar stem with a box wrench or adjustable wrench. This is the head of the stem bolt. Once loosened enough the stem should slide up and completely out (if necessary) of the stem casing. There is a tightening mechanism consisting of two soft metal pieces that tighten against each other when the stem bolt is tightened. When this is loose you can raise the stem to various heights. If you find you cannot raise it to your desired height you may need to replace the stem and bolt. However, if the bike has been sized properly to fit your leg length, you should have no problem there. Once the height of the stem is satisfactory just tighten the bolt while keeping the stem straight and you'll be ready to go!

How do you raise the handlebar of a Schwinn Ridge AL 26" bike? I want to add a child carrier and I need to raise the handlebar to make it fit.


The handlebars stem is an Aheadset-style and as such has spacers below it to set its height. Once the steerer tube is cut to fit the combination of stem and spacers there's no going UP, only down. Stems can be replaced with different rises and lengths. Maybe that would help. A Bicycle Shop would have everything you need and the know-how to decide if you can mount the child carrer.
