SOURCE: handle bars adjustment

You will have to go to a bicycle repair shop and ask for a handle bar stem extender. They come in various lengths.

SOURCE: Schwinn Impact MOS.....can the handle bars be raised...

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.

SOURCE: how to raise the handle bars? I have been able to

CAREFUL!!!! Go to a professional bike shop and let them see if you have enough stem (about 21/2" to 3") in the top tube. Less than that and it can snap off and you can get seriously hurt. More than likely, if they can raise it, you would only pay a minumum charge (not like a car, probably $5-$10)
It will be more if they have to install a new stem, because it involves taking it apart and putting it back together. But, it will be worth it if you like the bike other than it is not comfortable now. Remember, it is not made to be a cruiser which let you sit upright and are comfortable, Supension bikes are for mountain biking and rough terrain, going downhill and climbing. And you usually ride a smaller frame than normal because of how you ride the bike, too big and you lose control. So, the bars are almost always flat and you lean forward. I hope I answered your question, I have been in business for almost 40 years and do know what I am talking about.

SOURCE: How do you adjust the

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.

No, but a bike shop can assist you in selecting and fitting a stem with a higher rise.

Raising handle bars


Should be a set screw or release on the frame where the handlebar stem inserts into the frame. Lossen the connection and with a friend if necessary push down on the frame and pull up on the handelbars to rise the stem. You might need to spray some lubricant where the stem fits into the frame.

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!

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.

Hello, I just bought a raleigh devon 27 with alu frame. I want to raise the "steering tub" since the handlebar is to low compare to the saddle. How is this done ? Thanks, Kjell


http://www.sheldonbrown.com/handsup.html


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 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.


I would recommend you get used to the position that yields a careful compromise between aerodynamics and uprightness when needed.

Raise handle bars


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

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.
