I assume its a quill type stem if so loosen it so the wedge and stem are allowed to fit nicely inside the bike there is a bearing assembly to deal with after but they are pretty straight forward to install also there is a minimal insertion line on the stem ok

Is this bike to big for a 10 year old who is about 4'10 and weighs about 90-95 lbs?

I assume you want to get the right size for a Christmas present. Here's a suggestion. Tell him you need to measure him for pant. Have him straddle a broom handle that you hold horizontally. He should stand flat footed and the broom handle should be as high as you can raise it without pushing hard against him. If the end of the handle is touching the wall, make a pencil mark on the wall where it touches the wall. Then measure the distance of that mark from the floor. That measurement should be about the same as the distance from the bike's top-tube (the part of the bike frame between the seat and the handle-bars) and the ground. Essentially, you are measuring to see if the boy can straddle the top-tube of the bike with his feet flat on the ground. If he is growing fast, you might figure he can be a bit on his toes to straddle the top-tube. A realistic max height would be to straddle that tube with one foot flat and the other on his toes. Good luck!

Depends on what style of handle bars you have or what you want to do. Do you want to change the handle bars? Change height?Change the angle or stem?

You need to know what kind of headset you have on your bike. Either you have a "Threadless" or a "Threaded" headset. A "Threadless" headset has a star nut wedged in the fork tube and a hex bolt that goes through a plug on the top of your stem down into the star nut to compress everything together. You can easily change stem angle, length and height with a new stem which is realitivly inexpensive. If you have a "Threaded" headset the riser tube and stem are all one piece and it has a split/bolt at the bottom of the riser bar. As you tighten the split/bolt it tries to seperate wedging itself in your fok tube making everything tight. Not as easy to change but just as inexpensive.

Either way or whatever you are doing to your bike you will need a good set of allen keys. Almost every bolt on a bike now is hex head so a set of allen keys is a must.

I need to raise the handle bar on diamondblack Odyssey DB78 mountain bike. It has a "cartridge system inside" stamped on the top post around the allen key. I loosened the alley key but...

Simply web search for "raise the handle bar" and you get lots of resources.

A major limitation is the steerer tube length. No matter how many times you cut a steerer tube it won't get longer.

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 and least-invasive 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.

If you had purchased the bike at a reputable Bicycle Shop they would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

Can I raise the Handle Bars? If so, how? Thank you.

That would depend on how much of the stem shaft is still inside the steerer tube and where the safe insertion line is on it. With such a tiny bike there won't be much to play with.

How do I raise the handle bars on my mongoose xr 200 21 speed bike

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.

When the handlebars are turned, the wheel does not turn with them. Kettrike Air Navigator tricycle

  • It sounds like the quill insert is loose. The handle bar connects to the stem, the stem connects to the quill, the quill connects to the steerer tube.
  • while sitting on the bike, tighten the quill adjustment bolt a half turn at a time until the handlebars turn instantly with the front wheel.

How do i raise the handle bar?

behind the handle bars, where it joins to the bike is called a stem. Remove the center allen key bolt that runs down the center tube. Lift the handle bars up an inch and tighten the allen key bolt again. Your handlebars will now be a little higher for you.

Another way is to loosen the clamp bolts that hold the handlebars to the stem. With riser bars, you can twist them in the same spot and this will angle them up a little. You will have to loosen the brake/gear levers and angle them down until they suit you.

If neither of these works you can buy stems which have varying heights and lengths.

Hope this helps, please vote for me.

How do you hire the handle bars on a giant mountain bike

Hello. You will need an adjustable wrench. Then look at the center of the handlebars and you will see a bolt and a nut. Usually the nut is on the underside. Loosen the nut, raise the handle bars and retighten the nut. J.

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.
