Question about Cycling
The threadless stem style you have pre-supposes you chose the right height and reach when you bought the bike. As the steerer tube to which it clamps has to be below flush with the top surface to accomodate the top adjustment cap, the steerer had to be cut to a final length that can't be made longer. The stem CAN be flipped upside down to provide a different rise and reach, but most likely it would be lower and farther away.
One option is to replace the stem with one with an angle and length that would work for you. Have a bicycle shop asist you in choosing one as there are 4 parameters that must be considered.
Another is to get a threadless stem riser which effectively makes the steerer tube taller. Google "threadless stem riser".
