Most likely you have a threaded headset on your wifes bikes. Many times you will have to replace some of the cables and housing because they will be too short once the handlesbars are raised.

If you have a treadless headset than raising your handlebars is very simple. First check to see what type of headset you have. A threadless system with have a allen head on the very top of the stem and one or two more allen head bolts on the side of the stem. The threaded system will usually have only one bolt on the very top of the stem. It is sometimes covered by some type of cap. Also on threaded headsets, there will be a large nut under the stem, which is what most people mistakenly loosen to adjust the stem. Do not touch this nut, it will adjust the headset. Same goes for the allen head on the treadless headset, it will also adjust the headset so don't touch it.
So if you have a threaded stem, simply loosen the allen head or nut on the top of the stem and raise the stem up. Make sure you do not go above the max line and that you are still able to turn the handlebars freely.

Hope this helps!

We are having difficulty adjusting handle bars. We loosened stem binder bolt, raised the stem post, however unable to retighten the bolt. The threads do not reach once we raise the bars.


indications are that the taper lock nut at the bottom of the handle bars has been wound off and fallen into the fork area
remove the bars and tip the bike up side down to get that nut to fall out
put the nut back on the bolt at the bottom of the bar , refit and do the bolt up

How do you raise the handlebars on a next bike


Loosen the center post bolt and wiggle the handlebar back and forth while pulling up. There isn't much height adjustment. You can get a longer center post from a bike shop if you can't get a comfortable adjustment.

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.

How do you raise the handle bars on the bike?


If it is an older bike, you loosen the bolt at the top of the handle bar shaft until it is about 1/2 inch raised. Take a hammer and give it a swift bump and it should drop into the shaft. Hold the front tire between your legs and the handle bar should raise up. Re tighten once every thing is lined up. If the bike has front hand breakes these may need to be adjusted.

Need to raise the handle bar on my 2007 Marin Argenta road bike.


The stem for the marin is fixed so you'd have to replace it with one that is higher if you wanted to raise the elevation of your handle bars. You can pivot the handle bars for your preferred angle of comfort though. Loosen the 4 screws on the top of the stem and then you can adjust the handle bars to the correct angle that is best for you.
