The stem could be flipped over if the rise change would result in a hgiehr handlebar, but it would be minimal. That style of stem requires the steerer tube to be cut at the time of assembly and spacers are usually installed that would allow lowering the bars but not raising them since steerer tube length can't be increased.

Or, get a stem with a steeper rise.

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'm trying to replace the handlebars ona 26"


It's not clear what she did to modify the height. Most strategies are here:

If you surf the web for "bicycle handlebar stem adjustments" you will eventually find something that looks like what it IS right now. I suspect you may want to UNDO the modification. You could engage a bicycle shop and save all the research, parts procurement and labor. OR go surfing.

Just bought a Mongoose Spear (26"). How do I raise the handlebars?


http://www.sheldonbrown.com/handsup.html

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 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.

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

I have a mongoose rockadile 2010 mountain bike, how do i adjust the height on the handlebar?


i have never fixed this bike but normally there is an allen wrench bolt right on top of the shaft you have to loosen it (not take it out there is a tightening nut at the other end of the that you want to stay on) then after it is lose you should be able to adjust it but if not you will have to loosen or take of the first bolt down the shaft and that should make it able to be adjusted i hope this helps

How do you adjust handlebars on mongoose fsg?


There are two ways to adjust handle bars on a bike. It's either by using a hex key at the top of the neck or loosening the octagon nut at the base of the neck near the body.

20'' Mongoose BMX - How can i adjust handlebar height?


You need to unscrew the circular nut like thing on the stem all the way off and pull up hard on the bars and it should come up, try spraying some lucricant on the stem to loosen it if needed.
