Question about Pacific International Mongoose 20 in. Boys El Rey
The bike has a Aheadset stem assembly if that helps.Owner's manual does not talk about height adjustment only angle adjustment. I have loosen everything on the stem and handlebar and can't get it to come up. Whats the deal?
Aheadset headsets and clamp on stems are set to the maximum height from the factory, they can't be raised any higher without buying a new fork with a longer steering tube. Some times there will be a couple of washers under the stem and above the upper bearing of the headset that can be removed so that the stem can be lowered. These types of stems typically have a cap that screws into a "star nut" inside the steering column with a #4 or #5 Allen head socket bolt, this is used to adjust the bearings. Remove this cap and bolt (don't mess with the star nut, it is press fit into place), next loosen the one or two bolts at the back of the stem (typically at the back of the stem but not always). Be careful when removing the stem because there won't be anything holding the fork in the bike frame and it can fall out on the floor if you aren't careful. You will also notice that the fork is real sloppy without the stem in place now.
