Most likely you have a threaded headset on your wifes bikes. Many times you will have to replace some of the cables and housing because they will be too short once the handlesbars are raised.
If you 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!

Testimonial: "Thanks! I thought it had to be something like that. It would have been nice if they had made the handlebar adjustment as easy as the seat adjustment."
In order to raise the handle bars, you will need a hex key. Put it into the hex indentation at the top. Turn it left to loosen it. Then raise the handle bars to the desired height.

Testimonial: "Very Helpful because it is not an ordinary handle-bar and I didn't know which one to loosen. "
SOURCE: How do you raise the
there should be an allen wrench bolt on top of the handle bar shaft. loosen that but not to much because you dont want the tightening nut to fall off. now put the front tire between your legs and try to wiggle the handle bars back and forth while pulling up if it does not move try loosening it a little more and take off the first bolt on the shaft and that should work. i hope this helped you

SOURCE: How do I raise the
Your handle bar stem has a metric screw in the the neck of the bicycle. But, a word of caution, do not raise your handle bars more than the safety mark on the stem, it has to be inserted that much or it and it can snap in two and result in serious injury. Take it to a bike shop and they can either show you how or advise you on replacing the stem with a longer one. This is a very important part on your bike, do not take chances.
