SOURCE: I need to raise the handlebar height on my 26" bike.

On the neck, the bolt would be at the top, dead center, screwed down inside the neck. Loosen it about 5 full revolutions. Then take a hammer and tap it back down. Lift the handlebar to desired height, and hold it there 'til tight. Also while it's a little loose turn it clockwise/counter clockwise, to make the bar straight (while holding the front wheel) before fully tightening. Then your done! Glad to help. Best wishes to you.

SOURCE: how to raise handlebars on diamond back outlook

If it is a conventional handlebar stem, loosen the bolt on the top of the handlebar stem a couple of turns, tap the bolt with a hammer.
The bolt should drop down, at this point the bars should be loose.
Do not raise the handle bars above the safe limit line as the stem could break of come out .
Once you have them where you need them, re-tighten the bolt.

Hope this is of some help.

SOURCE: Can I raise the handlebars on my Marin hybrid bike

Most likely you have a threadless headset on your Marin which means you can not raise the handlebars without replacing the stem or handlebars themselves. In addition, many times you will also have to replace some of the cables and housing because they will be too short once the handlesbars are raised.

If you do not have a treadless headset than raising your handlebars is very simple. First check to see what type of headset you have. A threadless system with have a allen head on the very top of the stem and one or two more allen head bolts on the side of the stem. The threaded system will usually have only one bolt on the very top of the stem. It is sometimes covered by some type of cap. Also on threaded headsets, there will be a large nut under the stem, which is what most people mistakenly loosen to adjust the stem. Do not touch this nut, it will adjust the headset. Same goes for the allen head on the treadless headset, it will also adjust the headset so don't touch it.
So if you have a threaded stem, simply loosen the allen head or nut on the top of the stem and raise the stem up. Make sure you do not go above the max line and that you are still able to turn the handlebars freely.

Hope this helps. If you need any more help you can connect me at elijah@starbikesfl.com. Thank you

SOURCE: cannot raise handlebars on diamondback octane 24

You're right. A real bike shop would be able to swap out the stem and add riser bars or whatever you may need.

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

Raise handlebars on mountain bicycle


This will depend on what sort of stem you have. Most mountain bikes these days use a clamping style stem that simply grips the steerer tube on the fork. Some will have limited adjustment in that they may have a stack of 2 or 3 spacers that you can place either over the stem or below the stem. This does not give much adjustment. On my wife's bike the stem is actually adjustable similair to this: MEC 110mm Adjustable Stem Mountain Equipment Co op
and might be a good option for this bike.

Raise handlebar stem on a K2 Attack Mountain bike


you can't tell without looking to see what is on the bike but if it is a thread-less stem you can try taking handlebar off an then take stem off head tube and turn it a 180 degrees, the two are connecting the opposite things. that should raise the angle of the stem and bring handlebar up. that is a free solution.

How do you raise the handlebars?


unfortunately, your bike uses a threadless stem. meaning you cannot raise it, you must replace it with an adjustable one, or get a stem with a steeper angle.

Raise handlebars up 1"


Yeah, you'll most likely need to get a new stem with the rise. You can also get handlebars that have a rise to them. If your steering tube has space you can add some spacers under the stem but that seems pretty uncommon for a bike shop to assemble a bike with excess spacers on top of the stem.

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.

Can I raise the handlebars? I can raise the saddle but the handlebars seem fixed?


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 have a Sirrus bicycle made by Specialized. Is there a way to raise the handlebars?


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.

How do you raise the handlebars


There's a ring nut between the stem of the handlebars (The stem is the vertical part of the handlebars) and the frame of the bike where the handlebars connect into the frame. The handlebar stem goes down through the ring nut into the frame.

Loosen the ring nut and you'll be able to raise the handlebars. There's a mark on the handlebar stem which indicates the highest point that the handlebars can be raised to. If you raise it above this there won't be enough of it in the frame and this can cause the stem to break when pressure comes on it. Also when tightening the ring nut up again make sure you have the handlebars and front wheel lined up.

How to raise the handlebars on a 20" Huffy Rock It


Usually there is a hex bolt or some kind of bolt in the handlebar stem.
Loosen the bolt 4-5-6 turns.
Bolt will move upward.
Then hit bolt down with wrench.
Handlebars should be loose.
Raise handlebars to position.
Hold bolt upward with fingers while tightening.
