Question about Raleigh Diamondback Joker Bicycle '10
The solution above is great if you have a bicycle with a "quill, or threaded" stem.
If you have a "Threadless stem" you will need to make sure that you have enough "steer tube" to raise the stem upwards. If you do have enough steer tube to raise the bars, you will need spacers to take up the extra room created by raising the bars.
If you do not have any room left on the steer tube, you will not be able to raise the height of the bars, unless you get a different, taller set of handlebars.
If you have a quill stem, all you do is loosen the center bolt and adjust accordingly.

At the centre of the handlebars you will note a bolt head that is separate from the ones that lock the handlebars in place. Undo that bolt in an anticlockwise direction. About three full turns should be sufficient. Now take a block of wood and place it on top of the nut to protect the surface of the nut. Get a friend to hold the bike steady because you will need both hands to keep the block of wood on top of the bolt and deliver two sharp blows with a hammer. The handlebars should now be able to be pulled up and down or at least twisted and pulled up and down. Tighten the bolt at desired height
