SOURCE: I need to raise the height of my handle bars.

I am not sure which question to answer, so I will try both.

raising the handlebars, loosen the stem bolt 4or 5 turns, (this is the bolt on on the top of the handlebar stem). Tap the stem bolt with a hammer, the bold should drop down and the handle bars should fall loose, adjust as needed, then tighten the stem bolt to set.
Please note, there is usually a limit line on the stem, do not raise bars above this level as iy will make the handle bars unsafe and could pull out or break off.

second question, Child seats ar very adaptable, an will fit most bikes. Be sure to use all the necessary hard ware and safety guards. for you and your passenger.
Try to get the seat set up as low as possible as the higher the seat the higher the center of gravity. It will have less effect on handling characteristics if you keep the seat low.

I hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: back ache, can handlebars be raised? - How?

The stem can only raised safely within the steerer tube end to a line etched on its quill. There are stem extenders or even fixed-angle higher stems.

The sccret to getting a quill stem to move is to loosen the center (vertical bolt a few turns and then rap it down with a mallet to unseat the expander wedge inside the steerer tube.

It's possible your frame is sized improperly for you and your preferred riding position.

I would recommend you go to a real Bicycle Shop for those assessments.

SOURCE: How do you raise the handlebar of a Schwinn Ridge

The handlebars stem is an Aheadset-style and as such has spacers below it to set its height. Once the steerer tube is cut to fit the combination of stem and spacers there's no going UP, only down. Stems can be replaced with different rises and lengths. Maybe that would help. A Bicycle Shop would have everything you need and the know-how to decide if you can mount the child carrer.

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.

Raise handlebar stem on a K2 Attack Mountain bike


you can't tell without looking to see what is on the bike but if it is a thread-less stem you can try taking handlebar off an then take stem off head tube and turn it a 180 degrees, the two are connecting the opposite things. that should raise the angle of the stem and bring handlebar up. that is a free solution.

How do you raise the handlebars?


unfortunately, your bike uses a threadless stem. meaning you cannot raise it, you must replace it with an adjustable one, or get a stem with a steeper angle.

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 do you raise the handlebars


There's a ring nut between the stem of the handlebars (The stem is the vertical part of the handlebars) and the frame of the bike where the handlebars connect into the frame. The handlebar stem goes down through the ring nut into the frame.

Loosen the ring nut and you'll be able to raise the handlebars. There's a mark on the handlebar stem which indicates the highest point that the handlebars can be raised to. If you raise it above this there won't be enough of it in the frame and this can cause the stem to break when pressure comes on it. Also when tightening the ring nut up again make sure you have the handlebars and front wheel lined up.

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.

You loosen the nut that you see where the handlebars enter the front tube on the frame. Pull up a bit after loosening and then be sure to tighten the nut back when you get it where you want it.
