Depending on how high they need to be raised you may need to consider an adjustable stem or a stem extender. I would recommend taking your bike to a good shop as they will be able to take a look at how your bike fits you and what your options are .Its not just as simple as loosening the hex bolt in the stem and raising it as most stock stems don't give you much extra safe length to work with.

How do i raise the handlebars on the gt 3.0


Most bicycles have adjustable handlebar risers. Just loosen the center riser bolt 4 or 5 turns (you may have to use a mallet or hammer to break loose the draw nut from the neck) then raise it up "no higher than the max line indicator". If you still need it higher search for an extended riser or more suitable handlebars.

Raising handle bars


Should be a set screw or release on the frame where the handlebar stem inserts into the frame. Lossen the connection and with a friend if necessary push down on the frame and pull up on the handelbars to rise the stem. You might need to spray some lubricant where the stem fits into the frame.

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.

Hello, I just bought a raleigh devon 27 with alu frame. I want to raise the "steering tub" since the handlebar is to low compare to the saddle. How is this done ? Thanks, Kjell

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 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.

I have a Sirrus bicycle made by Specialized. Is there a way to raise the handlebars?


There are a number of ways to raise the handlebar, depends on how old your Sirrus is.

The most common is too replace the stem with one that has a higher rise to it. Take your bike into your local bike shop and have them take a look at your set-up and they can offer specific options depending on how high you want to raise the bars.

NOTE: Depending how high you raise your handlebars you may need to replace your cables and housing to your controls. Also you may have handling issues if you raise the bars too high. If you are raising your bars because your uncomfortable or having pains in the neck or back you should consider getting a bike fitting to make sure you are properly mated to your bicycle.

How to raise the handlebars on a 20" Huffy Rock It


Usually there is a hex bolt or some kind of bolt in the handlebar stem.
Loosen the bolt 4-5-6 turns.
Bolt will move upward.
Then hit bolt down with wrench.
Handlebars should be loose.
Raise handlebars to position.
Hold bolt upward with fingers while tightening.

Raise handle bars


At the centre of the handlebars you will note a bolt head that is separate from the ones that lock the handlebars in place. Undo that bolt in an anticlockwise direction. About three full turns should be sufficient. Now take a block of wood and place it on top of the nut to protect the surface of the nut. Get a friend to hold the bike steady because you will need both hands to keep the block of wood on top of the bolt and deliver two sharp blows with a hammer. The handlebars should now be able to be pulled up and down or at least twisted and pulled up and down. Tighten the bolt at desired height

Does anyone know if all of the components from a 2000 year model Raleigh Serengeti Mountain bike will fit on a 2006 Trek 4500 frame? I am looking at upgrading to a lighter frame, but like the components on...


They ought to. Bicycle components are quite universal. You may run into a part or two which won't fit (front derailleurs have to fit frame design [especially on full-suspension bikes] as well as tube diameter), and you must bear in mind that the geometry of the new frame will most assuredly be different, so your handlebars and stem may no longer be familiar or comfortable to you. Good luck!
