SOURCE: Can't tighten the handlebar stem.

hi lynduck,

are you using a threadless steam or a threaded one?

like this one in the picture.

if so, spacers should be on the right spot and the pinch botls should be tights. top cap should not be moveable and this will make sure your front end turns lightly. apply light axle grease to make it smooth.

regards,

Replacement stems and quills are readily available. Google bicycle parts and you will get a long list of online stores to choose from. i might suggest starting with Pricepoint.com as they have very good pricing, generally.

i hope this helps

The threadless stem style you have pre-supposes you chose the right height and reach when you bought the bike. As the steerer tube to which it clamps has to be below flush with the top surface to accomodate the top adjustment cap, the steerer had to be cut to a final length that can't be made longer. The stem CAN be flipped upside down to provide a different rise and reach, but most likely it would be lower and farther away.

One option is to replace the stem with one with an angle and length that would work for you. Have a bicycle shop asist you in choosing one as there are 4 parameters that must be considered.

Another is to get a threadless stem riser which effectively makes the steerer tube taller. Google "threadless stem riser".

Here's one on eBay...

Probably. Getting Riser Bars or a riser stem 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.

How do I raise the handle bars on a Schwinn Cruiser Alloy Seven?


There should be an allen wrench fitting on the top of the handlebar stem. Loosen (counterclockwise) so that the bolt head is up at least 1/4". Then tap the allen wrench with a hammer. The stem should come loose so that you can raise it. Be careful not to go above the "Max height" mark that will be engraved on the stem.

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.

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.

How do I raise the front handle bars on my Schwinn Jaguar?


On most bikes (Jaguar is a broad category, with varying details) there are two bolts in the middle of the handlebars. One bolt squeezes a clamp around the middle of the handlebars. If you loosen that one, you can tip your handlebars up or down. You can usually see this entire short bolt and it's nut (actually you would loosen the nut.) The other bolt is the one you want. On this other bolt, only the head of the bolt is visible. This is actually a long bolt that extends down into the the handlebar stem. The nut is down inside the stem, and it wedge-shaped so that it jams the stem tight inside the tube that houses it. Loosen this bolt about two turns, but do not remove it. Just give it a tap with a hammer, to free the wedging of the nut. You will now be able to pull the handle-bar stem up. It will probably still be snug, so you will have to twist it back and forth to pull it up. Pull the stem all of the way out and take a look at it. There will be a line on the stem that tells you the maximum safe height to which you can raise it. Re-insert the stem at least far enough to hide that line. If this is not high enough, you can buy a longer stem to replace it. Good luck, Al K

How do you raise the handlebar of a Schwinn Ridge AL 26" bike? I want to add a child carrier and I need to raise the handlebar to make it fit.


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.

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.

Raising the handlebars


If your bike is older it might have a quill stem.To raise this you have to undo the allen key headed bolt situated where the bar & stem attach to the bike.It is often obscured by a plastic plug to prevent water rusting the bolt head.If this doesn't go high enough an adjustable quill stem must be fitted.
If you have the modern design of stem(A-head)you will have to replace the stem with an adjustable type which can be set upto 60 degrees.

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.
