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.

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.

I have a schwinn fastback road bike. I want to know how to raise the handle bars?

A major limitation is the steerer tube length. No matter how many times you cut a steerer tube it won't get longer.

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 and least-invasive 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.

A reputable Bicycle Shop would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

I have a women's Schwinn Ridge AL mountain bike and to install the handle bar, I have to remove the top cap but it wouldnt screw off or pop out. How is this supposed to be done?


That cap never needs to be removed. It is simply for adjusting the preload on the headset bearings while the other bolts on the stem secure that adjustment.

Hit the search engines with "threadless headset adjustment" for many explanatory videos.

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

My handlebar bolt appears to be stripped...I really never could tighten it all the way.....The handlebar moves and, the last time I tried tightening , the bolt just kept moving around completely. Can...


If the threads internal to the stem are stripped, you'll probably need to replace it.

Go to a bike shop because this would be a good opportunity to get a different rise or reach if the fit isn't perfect for you. They'll have all the sizes.

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.

You have it on backwards.  I had the exact same problem.  Turn the fender around so that the arms that connect to the axel are pointing forward.  They are going to be almost parallel to the ground.  Easy Peasy lemon Squeezy.

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.
