You should take it back to your dealer and let him adjust it for you. I do not know if you are trying to raise your bar or tip it closer to you. If, you try to raise it, remember that it has to be in the top tube at least 2 1/2 to 3 inches inserted, there is a safety mark, DO NOT GO ABOVE IT, BECAUSE IT CAN SNAP OFF. All bicycles are metric and to tip it towards you just loosen the bracket that goes around the bar, to raise is usually a metric allen, but again unless you know what you are doing have someone do it that can do it right.

What is the year of manufacture?


Serial numbers are most often useless in dating or getting info on bikes. Some bikes have a date code on the head tube (where the fork goes through). Best solution is to go to BikePedia, then put your make/model in to the search. Scroll through until you find one that matches the color scheme, decals and equipment of your bike.

Steering too lose


From the images I have seen of the bike the loose steering could be resolved by tightening the allen screw (hex key) in the goose neck. If you were sitting on your bike and looking at the handle bars, just below where the handle bars adjust, pivot forward or back, there is an allen head bolt going down. Tightening up this bolt should tighten your steering. Some bikes have a standard bolt headed bolt to tighten the steering. Good luck!

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 have a new set of handle bars how do i fix them on to my raleigh bike


Sweetheart, it is hard to answer without seeing your exact situation by photograph, for instance. There are so many "Raleigh" bikes nowadays. If your new bars are exactly the same as the old, a simple visit to the hardware store, if you have one, or a bike shop, will tell you what tools you need. I once knew a chipmonk who could chip wood with its teeth, grin. But I never met a chipmonk who could turn screws or bolts by mere wish-power. Tools are needed, and a friendly adviser. Good luck, and look, for most things are answered by looking closely at them.

Need to raise the handle bar on my 2007 Marin Argenta road bike.


The stem for the marin is fixed so you'd have to replace it with one that is higher if you wanted to raise the elevation of your handle bars. You can pivot the handle bars for your preferred angle of comfort though. Loosen the 4 screws on the top of the stem and then you can adjust the handle bars to the correct angle that is best for you.

Need to adjust height of handlebar on a jeep sahara bicycle


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.
