As a rule the Allen screw center front of you on the back of the bars must be loosened several turns you may have to bang it down with a rubber mallet as to non hurt the finish.That will loosen them raise to height and re tighten.

SOURCE: need to adjust height of handlebar

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.

SOURCE: I have a Sirrus bicycle

There are a number of ways to raise the handlebar, depends on how old your Sirrus is.

The most common is too replace the stem with one that has a higher rise to it. Take your bike into your local bike shop and have them take a look at your set-up and they can offer specific options depending on how high you want to raise the bars.

NOTE: Depending how high you raise your handlebars you may need to replace your cables and housing to your controls. Also you may have handling issues if you raise the bars too high. If you are raising your bars because your uncomfortable or having pains in the neck or back you should consider getting a bike fitting to make sure you are properly mated to your bicycle.

Handlebars won't stay upright


The part that holds the handle bars on is called the Head-set this should have adjustment screw/screws they may have a small plastic cover over them to prevent rust. They are usually require an Allen wrench to tighten them. If they become loose again then get some locktight and use this on the handle bars and the threads of the bolts before you tighten them up.

How to adjust the handlebars on a bike


To adjust the handlebar position on your Raleigh, loosen the nut on the bottom of the stem extension. Use a 13mm or 14mm wrench, whichever fits. Do not use pliers or Vicegrips! It is upside down, so be careful to turn it counter-clockwise while looking at it from the bottom. To change the handlebar height, you need to loosen the bolt on top of the vertical part of the stem. You may need to tap it with a small hammer to break it loose after it is loosened about 1/4 inch. Now you can adjust the handlebar height, being careful not to exceed the maximum height engraved on the stem. You should also carefully align the bars with the front wheel before tightening the bolt. If you do not understand the terms used here, you should take the bike to a bicycle repair shop.

I need to heighten handlebars


In the center right below the handlebars is and allen head screw. You will need an allen wrench, loosen the screw by turning it counter clockwise. Lift-up on the handlebars and adjust to the desired height and re-tighten the hex screw. Be carefull not to raise up beyond the lower adjoining yoke line on the goose neck.

How do we keep up the handle bars on a boys disney 16" cars bike


If the handlebars are "slipping" then you need to tighten the bolts on the stem. The stem is the piece that connects the handlebar to the bike itself and usually has 1, 2 or 4 hex headed bolts that hold the handlebar in place. The Park Tool website indicates that you should torque these bolts to 15-20 foot lbs. This is important because the potential for injury is high if the bars slip at the wrong time. If you don't have a torque wrench then take the bike to your local bike shop and let a professional with the proper tool do the work. This is so simple and quick a fix that they may not even charge you
