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

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.

SOURCE: What is the diameter on the mongoose blackcomb

It would be stamped right on the clamp area. Loosen the stem's front face and look. That would only tell you the size of the 'bulge'. Otherwise, measure the dimension you need with a caliper.

We would like to raise the handlebars on a Mongoose Rock River Mountain bike but there doesn't seem to be a way to do it. We have no manual as it was purchased used. Thanks


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.

How do i raise the handlebar on a 1999 MGX bicycle?


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.

Can the handlebar height be adjusted on the mongoose deceptor bike?


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.
