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.

Can't fold phil and teds dash,


I successfully fixed this issue today on a 2008 dash stroller. first remove the handle, you will need to drill out the two rivets with a 1/4" drill bit, but don't go too far, don't drill out the plastic on the handle piece. unscrew the four brake cable clips. unscrew the two screws securing the grey release clips. Prop stroller on the handle bar side (put padding underneath so you don't mess up your work surface) and the rear wheels. now get two small bladed screw drivers, you can gradually pry down the internal plastic locking wedge on either side till it releases the front wheel section which folds down. (on the left side which is likely functioning, you can just pull the plastic circular piece down with your fingers, as the internal wire is still connected)
Now grab some vise grips, lock onto the locking wedge and remove the whole mechanism, also remove the foam inside with a screw driver (this likely is what was supposed to keep the tension wire in place). Take the locking wedge mechanism apart. ( you will need to push the steel pin out with a small screw, it does not take a lot of force) Get a small nylon zip tie and secure it around the shaft on the tension wire connecting end of the locking wedge. (this will keep it from ever falling out(pulling through) again. This part (the locking wedges) should have been made out of aluminum or stainless steel and the issue would never occur. You will need to trim the catch end of the zip tie and make sure that it can slide freely inside of the plastic sleeve. now slide off the nylon zip tie and set it aside along with the spring.
Take the circular plastic piece (the 4" part inside that is near the handle piece with slots in it) slide in the tension cable. Slide the other end of the tension cable into the frame from the handle bar side till you can reach the end from the front wheel side. Now slide on the tubular plastic wedge housing and lock it in place to the frame (the detente underneath the frame lines up with the bump on the tubular sleeve), then the spring, then the small nylon zip tie, then the release wedge. Secure the zip tie onto the release wedge shaft and aim the head of the zip tie down so it can slide freely. Put some Vaseline or white lithium grease on the release wedge so it slides well. If the release wedge binds up you will need trim the zip tie head a bit more so it fits.
Next take the removed riveted posts and drill them out with a sharp 1/8" drill bit about 3/8" deep. (Use vise grips to hold onto these guys, as they will get hot, and make sure to use some oil while you drill to keep things cooler. Slide down the plastic circularly plastic pieces (you may need small screw driver to manipulate them down) so you can re-attach the two grey release mechanism brackets.
Re-insert the two formerly riveted brackets through the frame which will locate the handlebar properly. Get two small 1/4" sheet metal screws. Put the black washer back on, apply firm pressure and screw in the 1/4" sheet metal screws into the drilled out posts with a drill.
Re-attach the seat and you are good as new.
Note: The instructions may seem a little tricky, but you can do it.

HANDLEBAR ADJUSTMENT


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.

How do I raise the front handle bars on my Schwinn Jaguar?


On most bikes (Jaguar is a broad category, with varying details) there are two bolts in the middle of the handlebars. One bolt squeezes a clamp around the middle of the handlebars. If you loosen that one, you can tip your handlebars up or down. You can usually see this entire short bolt and it's nut (actually you would loosen the nut.) The other bolt is the one you want. On this other bolt, only the head of the bolt is visible. This is actually a long bolt that extends down into the the handlebar stem. The nut is down inside the stem, and it wedge-shaped so that it jams the stem tight inside the tube that houses it. Loosen this bolt about two turns, but do not remove it. Just give it a tap with a hammer, to free the wedging of the nut. You will now be able to pull the handle-bar stem up. It will probably still be snug, so you will have to twist it back and forth to pull it up. Pull the stem all of the way out and take a look at it. There will be a line on the stem that tells you the maximum safe height to which you can raise it. Re-insert the stem at least far enough to hide that line. If this is not high enough, you can buy a longer stem to replace it. Good luck, Al K

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.

Back ache, can handlebars be raised? - How?


The stem can only raised safely within the steerer tube end to a line etched on its quill. There are stem extenders or even fixed-angle higher stems.

The sccret to getting a quill stem to move is to loosen the center (vertical bolt a few turns and then rap it down with a mallet to unseat the expander wedge inside the steerer tube.

It's possible your frame is sized improperly for you and your preferred riding position.

I would recommend you go to a real Bicycle Shop for those assessments.

Handlebar+Wheel


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.
