SOURCE: diamondback rm 20 kids bike. Can you adjust the handlebars?

Yes, there is an allen screw on the top of the stem of the handle bars.....it may also be a bolt with a head on it that can be turned with a socket or cresent wrench.

Loosen the bolt 3 or 4 complete revolutions and then wiggle the bars back and forth from side to side while pulling up. Be careful not to completely remove the screw as the piece that it is connected to will fall off and you will have to remove the bars completely to fix.

You need to unscrew the circular nut like thing on the stem all the way off and pull up hard on the bars and it should come up, try spraying some lucricant on the stem to loosen it if needed.

SOURCE: Ball bearings fell out of handlebar connection on 3-speed bike.

Take it to a professional bike shop. They have the knowledge and tools to set it right.

Or take a look at this:
http://www.sheldonbrown.com/headsets.html

The headset nuts were not necessary to be moved for handlebar adjustment. Now the bearing load is too tight. Correct adjustment of the headset requires a delicate balance between tightness and freedom of movement. If your bike has/had the original bearings it's a safe bet they may be due for replacement anyway.

Can the handlebar be raised on a 2015 giant anthem 1


The seat should typically be at a point such that your knee has a slight bend at the bottom of the pedal stroke. The handlebars go wherever they are most comfortable for you. Reach (horizontal distance) is adjusted with a different stem. Height on your bike can only be increased by using a stem raiser. The following Google search will show you what is available, and the video results will show the procedure to install it.

How do I raise handlebar on giant mtx150


Likely uses an ahead set type handlebar setup. There might be spacers that you can move from over the bar to under, but if you are looking for a lot of adjustment, puchase a new stem that is adjustable.

I have a giant boulder mountain bike and i want to raise the bars. do they make a special componant for this . ray


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

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.

A reputable Bicycle Shop would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.
You can search the web for many answers, too.

How do you raise the handlebars for the animator first bike by Giant bikes?


David-

To raise or lower the handlebars, first loosen the hex screw on the top of the stem. One or two turns is all that will be necessary. Next, you will need to stand in front of the bike with the front wheel between your legs to brace it, and give the handlebars a forceful twist to the left or right. This action will break the friction of the handlebar stem and the headtube (the headtube is part of the frame where the front forks and the handlebar stem meet...). With the handlebars loosened you can adjust the handlbars up or down. Keep in mind that the stem has only a specific amount of adjustment available...there is a limit to how far it can be extended up, as indicated by a line marked on the stem shaft. Once adjusted to the desired height, check that the handlebars and front fork and wheel are aligned. Tighten the screw in the top of the stem and you're done!

Hope this helps.

My son inherited a Giant MTX 225 bike (I think a 2004 model). How do you adjust the handlebars closer to the seat (my son has to lean forward to reach them and it puts his back in an uncomfortable...


Stem length is the only dimension that can be modified, assuming the bike is not TOO long. They don't adjust in that direction but a Bike Shop can work with you to select one with a shorter reach and/or a different rise if necessary.

If your son has any desire to ride faster than 15mph or so for prolonged periods he's going to have to get his torso down and out of the wind, so a leaning forward postion would serve that goal.

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.
