SOURCE: How can I raise handlebars on a 26 in. Mountain

You need an Allen wrench (a.k.a. hex key) to fit the bolt head right in the middle of the handle bars. Loosen this bolt just 2 or 3 turns then tap the head with a soft hammer or block of wood and a hammer. Then pull the handle bar stem up (and all of the way out so you can see how the wedge-shaped nut at the bottom of the stem works). Look for a mark on the stem telling you how high you can safely raise the bars (you have to leave enough of the stem inside the tube so that it will be strong.) Put it back in and tighten it up. If you found this helpful, please vote. Good luck

Depending on how high they need to be raised you may need to consider an adjustable stem or a stem extender. I would recommend taking your bike to a good shop as they will be able to take a look at how your bike fits you and what your options are .Its not just as simple as loosening the hex bolt in the stem and raising it as most stock stems don't give you much extra safe length to work with.

You can only raise a quill stem os far safely. Loosen the vertical center bolt that's in line with the steerer tube a few turns and then tap down on it with a block of wood or rubber mallet to unseat it. The stem should be loose enough to turn independently of the front wheel. You can also raise it somewhat, but look carefully for the "maximum height" or equivalent markings etched into the stem body. Don't expose any more stem than up to that line. Line up your handlebars with the front wheel and securely tighten that bolt. It should be tight enough to vigorously resist independent rotation when you hold the front wheel bewteen your knees and attempt to turn the handlebars.

If it's a new-style threadless type stem, the maximum height was determined when they assembled the bike because they had to cut the steerer tube to be below the top edge of the stem. Go to a Bike Shop and have them replace the stem with one that has a higher rise or shorter reach.

SOURCE: We would like to raise

Maximum height was determined when the bike was built and they sawed off the steerer tube.

There is no way to raise the stem vertically, short of getting a new stem that has a higher rise.

Can handlebars on diamondback insight 2 be raised?


typically not, they use an Aheadset style headset. If you need them higher then your dealer or local bike shop can help you pick out a stem that has more "rise" to it so you can sit more upright.

I have a Mongoose Cambridge bicycle. I was wondering how to tilt the handle bars towords me so I am not having to bend over so far.

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.

Just bought a diamondback edgewood lx hybrid. want to raise the handlebars but the top bolt won't loosen, even with the correct size allen wrench. I just can't get it to budge.


spray it with WD-40 or any other spray lubricant, leave it for a bit, wipe off the excess lubricant and tap it w/a mallet. you can use a hammer if you dont have a mallet but not to hard:) then try it again:)

I would recommend you get used to the position that yields a careful compromise between aerodynamics and uprightness when needed.

How do I attach the handle bar?


To what - the stem; or is it the stem to the steerer tube?

Did it fall off?
