By the bolt in the center (loosen it, then tap it, to free it up) that will allow them to go up or down. To change the angle of the bars the handle bar stem has 1 or 2 bolts facing the front wheel...loosen them and go where you need to go.then retighten them... happy Cycling.
em has 1 or 2 bolts

SOURCE: diamondback rm 20 kids bike. Can you adjust the handlebars?

Yes, there is an allen screw on the top of the stem of the handle bars.....it may also be a bolt with a head on it that can be turned with a socket or cresent wrench.

Loosen the bolt 3 or 4 complete revolutions and then wiggle the bars back and forth from side to side while pulling up. Be careful not to completely remove the screw as the piece that it is connected to will fall off and you will have to remove the bars completely to fix.

You need to unscrew the circular nut like thing on the stem all the way off and pull up hard on the bars and it should come up, try spraying some lucricant on the stem to loosen it if needed.

SOURCE: Can the handlebar height be

The stem could be flipped over if the rise change would result in a hgiehr handlebar, but it would be minimal. That style of stem requires the steerer tube to be cut at the time of assembly and spacers are usually installed that would allow lowering the bars but not raising them since steerer tube length can't be increased.

Or, get a stem with a steeper rise.

i have never fixed this bike but normally there is an allen wrench bolt right on top of the shaft you have to loosen it (not take it out there is a tightening nut at the other end of the that you want to stay on) then after it is lose you should be able to adjust it but if not you will have to loosen or take of the first bolt down the shaft and that should make it able to be adjusted i hope this helps

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.

A reputable Bicycle Shop would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

Can the handlebar be raised on a 2015 giant anthem 1


The seat should typically be at a point such that your knee has a slight bend at the bottom of the pedal stroke. The handlebars go wherever they are most comfortable for you. Reach (horizontal distance) is adjusted with a different stem. Height on your bike can only be increased by using a stem raiser. The following Google search will show you what is available, and the video results will show the procedure to install it.

Lower seat height


More info required ... what bike? Pedal bike? loosen the bolt on the tube under the seat and adjust the seat stem downward until it will go no more. If it is already in the lowest position, you will have to wait for your daughter to grow a little.

How to adjust the handlebars on a bike


To adjust the handlebar position on your Raleigh, loosen the nut on the bottom of the stem extension. Use a 13mm or 14mm wrench, whichever fits. Do not use pliers or Vicegrips! It is upside down, so be careful to turn it counter-clockwise while looking at it from the bottom. To change the handlebar height, you need to loosen the bolt on top of the vertical part of the stem. You may need to tap it with a small hammer to break it loose after it is loosened about 1/4 inch. Now you can adjust the handlebar height, being careful not to exceed the maximum height engraved on the stem. You should also carefully align the bars with the front wheel before tightening the bolt. If you do not understand the terms used here, you should take the bike to a bicycle repair shop.

Adjust handlebar height on Schwinn Varsity


I'm answering 7 years later. I have a Schwinn Varsity 2500 Bike made probably in 2015. The Schwinn Varsity Bike is not set up the same way as a traditional bike. I loosened the center compression bolt and the two side stem clamp bolts and it came loose where I can adjust it up or down but, there's nothing to tighten the slack up below. I did some research. My original post here was to add or remove a spacer. I think you can remove a spacer to lower but, I don't think the stem is long enough to add another one. I've seen they sell an extension that you can add-on to make the handle bars higher.

Threadless stems limit what you can do with height.

How do you adjust the seat


Hi there Vriddick

To adjust the seat for height, there is a locking bolt on the seat post, below the seat. Loosen this and the seat should drop down the hole. Lift it up to your specified height and tighten up the bolt. You can also use this method to adjust the direction of the seat in relation to the handlebars, left or right.

If you need the seat adjusted for its angle. Under the seat itself are two bolts clamping two large circular bits of metal, undo these bolts and tilt the seat downwards or upwards, retighten when you have it just right.
