SOURCE: Can't tighten the handlebar stem.

hi lynduck,

are you using a threadless steam or a threaded one?

like this one in the picture.

http://www.sheldonbrown.com/images/headset-threadless.jpg

if so, spacers should be on the right spot and the pinch botls should be tights. top cap should not be moveable and this will make sure your front end turns lightly. apply light axle grease to make it smooth.

regards,

voodoo

SOURCE: I would like to raise

Hey joe - Sounds like you have a classic stuck stem. Here are a couple things to try.

1 - Loosen the stem through the top bolt so the wedge is loose, but not removed. The give the top of the stem a good hit or two with a plastic mallet. That should break the bond between the steerer and the stem. If that does not work...

2 - Use liquid Wrench and drip around the stem so it seeps in-between the stem and steerer. Let sit a while then try the plastic mallet again.

sometimes you will need to work the stem back and forth a bit by using the handlebars as leverage and bracing the front wheel between your knees.

If neither of these get your stem loose, then it's time to take into a bike shop.

BTW - stems have a maximum insertion/ extension. There is a line of max extenstion that should be on the shaft when you get it removed. If you discover that the stem will not raise your handlebars enough, then you can get a replacement stem with a higher shaft and greater angle to lift the bars up.

Raising handlebars on schwinn ditch 2.0 dn


The above answer is incorrect. The Ditch has what is called a "threadless" fork/stem setup. One cannot raise the stem at all unless there are spacers above it. Raising the stem is also not the only option. A stem with a shorter "reach" may be sufficient. Google "threadless stem riser" to see options for raising the stem. Following is a video with the procedure.

Adjust handle bar height ?


looking at some pictures of this model, most appear to be using an "Aheadset" style handlebar stem, there is not any way to raise this type of stem. Your alternative is to go online or to a local bike shop and purchase a new stem that will fit your fork and handlebar that has a higher pitch angle to it, or a compatible adjustable stem that pivots. Expect to pay $25-$50 or more for a new handlebar stem, not including labor to install.

How do you raise the handlebars?


That depends on what sort of headset you have. the most common these days is a straight fork with a clamping stem that retains the fork, keeps the steering bearings properly loaded and that the handlebars attach to. You can get some that allow you to change the height, but if yours if fixed then likely the only thing you can do without parts is to flip the quill over. Depending on the stem you have and how it is currently mounted this might not gain you any height. As you can see from the picture, in this case flipping the stem over will lower the handlebars

Raise handlebars on mountain bicycle


This will depend on what sort of stem you have. Most mountain bikes these days use a clamping style stem that simply grips the steerer tube on the fork. Some will have limited adjustment in that they may have a stack of 2 or 3 spacers that you can place either over the stem or below the stem. This does not give much adjustment. On my wife's bike the stem is actually adjustable similair to this: MEC 110mm Adjustable Stem Mountain Equipment Co op
and might be a good option for this bike.

I have a Bianchi Strada hybrid. I want to raise the handle bars. What size stem riser should I get? Is this the right way to do this?


http://www.sheldonbrown.com/handsup.html

A major limitation is the steerer tube length. No matter how many times you cut a steerer tube it won't get longer.

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.

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