At the base of the middle bar there should be a thin bolt that you tighten with a 2 inch pipe wrench and holding onto the bars and tire with your knees so bars stay straight.

Huffy stalker 18 speed, I can't tighten the stem.


If you are talking about the handle-bar stem, the bolt you need to tighten is right in the middle of the post. It may have a snap-on plastic cover over it. This will be the head of a long bolt that reaches down inside of the stem where the nut is shaped as a wedge that serves to tighten inside the tube of the front fork. If you are talking about the the seat-post, then your seat-post might be of too small diameter.This page shows a good picture of the handle-bar stem bolt and wedge nut.

The handle bar stem on my sons mongoose is loose. I have tried to tighten the screw that connects to the stem but it doesnt seem to be stopping the bars from being shaky?


Your handle bars are most likely stripped or the mongoose head is stripped or a combination of both. Unscrew the bolt you just tightened and take the handle bars off to inspect the little splined area, if smooth than handle bars need to be replaced. The neck should also have those little lines horizontally this area should not be smooth. You can try to wirebrush the area and out it back together, see if that works or the cheapest thing to replace would be the handle bars. When I was a kid I would pin my handle bars so they would not move cause we did a lot of jumping of our bikes and had a lot of stripped handle bars. Mongoose is a good stem I would lean towards new bars. Good Luck...

On three occasions my handle bars have freed up relative to the stema nd wheel direction. In other words, my handle bars are not controlling the direction of the wheel - it's almos as if a linkage or...


Stop guessing. You've used up three of your lives....

Search engine "how to adjust threadless stem" for videos.

Is that the stock stem or did someone replace it? It almost sounds like the inside diameter of the stem doesn't match the steerer tube, or something's cracked.

One person had this to say about it... "It was a two-bolt stem, and the problem was that I wasn't tightening the bolts to the same torque setting. If you don't do that, the stem doesn't clamp the bar evenly all the way around, and it will start to slip, and the uneven forces will cause the bolts to loosen.

The handle bars keep moving from left to right, how do I stop this from happening.


There should be a nut at the end of the handlebar stem, where it goes into the bicycle frame. The nut fits around the stem and screws into the frame. Tightening this will solve the problem

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 can I raise handlebars on a 26 in. Mountain bike (mongoose 21 speed0


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

How do i raise the handlebars?


There are two bolts in the center of the handle-bars. One bolt (on some bikes this is actually 4 bolts) is used to clamp the handle-bars to the handle-bar-stem. You can see both ends of this bolt. If you loosen it, you can tip the handle-bars up and down, but not raise them. The other bolt you can only see the head of. Loosen this a couple of turns (don't unscrew it all the way) then give it a tap with a hammer. You will then be able to pull the handle-bar-stem completely out. Do this so that you can see the wedge-shaped nut at the other end of the bolt. You should also see a mark on the stem that indicates how high you can safely raise the stem. Put the stem back in to the desired height and tighten it back up. Good luck.

I am assuming that you have a standard headset type bike, not an AheadSet style head set, where the stem actually works to hold the fork in place.

In standard headsets, the stem has a jam wedge which pulls tight in the fork stem and locks the stem in place.

Is that wedge missing? Is the bolt that extends through the wedge stripped or worn? You may need a new stem to get it to pull tight.

If this does not help you, post more clearly what is going on.
