Modern threadless headsets require height choices to be made at build time because once cut, the steere can not be made longer. Many bikes come with a medium height stem and a few spacers underneath it to allow for lowering it. All threadless stems can be flipped over to change tthe rise angle and you may find a solution in that. Or you could gog to a Local Bike Shop and have them advise you on replacement stems with diffrent rises and reaches. The extra spacers, if any, can be placed above the stem untill you're satisfied with the fit. Then you can cut the excess off and save the spacers or leave it as is, but it looks dorky..

Unless you understand threadless stems, you should not attempt to change anything as your life depends on correct tightness. Look here:

Trayl bike owners manual. or how do I adjust the height of the handle bars?


Your bike has a modern "threadless headset" which usually allows very little vertical adjustment. See this page for an explanation of how to change height on that style:
How to adjust handlebar height BikeRadar
If you can't adjust enough that way you can try buying a shorter stem or one with a steeper angle,. The final option is to buy a "stem riser" - Google the term for more info - needs to have correct dimensions for your bike

It's best to get advice at a bike shop as to what option is best for you..

Adjust handle bar height ?


looking at some pictures of this model, most appear to be using an "Aheadset" style handlebar stem, there is not any way to raise this type of stem. Your alternative is to go online or to a local bike shop and purchase a new stem that will fit your fork and handlebar that has a higher pitch angle to it, or a compatible adjustable stem that pivots. Expect to pay $25-$50 or more for a new handlebar stem, not including labor to install.

How do you adjust the height of the handle bars?


What kind of stem are we talking about. Modern stems are not adjustable other than to add or remove spacers under them or flip the whole thing over for a drastic change. Once cut to length the stem adjustment is very limited as you can't really get away with adding spacers for additional height. Beyond its current physical limitations you would probably need a different stem.

Here's a great resource that explains old-school and newer stems.

Need to adjust height of handlebar on a jeep sahara bicycle


Most bikes use an allen key to adjust the height of the handle bars. Typically 6mm. But be careful most bikes do not have much adjustment that can be done to the height of the handle bars. The handle bar stem will have a line on it of the "minimum insertion". That line must be below the top of the head set nut for safety reasons. Look for the line as you adjust the height.
