Raise handlebars on mountain bicycle


This will depend on what sort of stem you have. Most mountain bikes these days use a clamping style stem that simply grips the steerer tube on the fork. Some will have limited adjustment in that they may have a stack of 2 or 3 spacers that you can place either over the stem or below the stem. This does not give much adjustment. On my wife's bike the stem is actually adjustable similair to this: MEC 110mm Adjustable Stem Mountain Equipment Co op
and might be a good option for this bike.

I am running OS X 10.4.11 and would like to upgrade my operating system?


Please provide more information.
To what would you like to upgrade it?

Since OSX Mavericks was just announced, I'm going to assume that's what you're wanting to upgrade to.

Not all Macs can run Mavericks.

Mavericks Capable Macs

Mavericks, like its predecessor Mountain Lion, requires one of the following Macs with at least 2 GB of RAM and 8 GB of available hard drive space:
  • iMac (Mid 2007 or newer)
  • MacBook (Late 2008 Aluminum, or Early 2009 or newer)
  • MacBook Air (Late 2008 or newer)
  • MacBook Pro (Mid/Late 2007 or newer)
  • Mac mini (Early 2009 or newer)
  • Mac Pro (Early 2008 or newer)
  • Xserve (Early 2009)

If your Mac isn't one of the ones listed above, you won't be able to upgrade.

If you have an iMac, MacBook, MacBook Pro, or Mac mini model that was originally released in Early/Mid 2006, the latest version of Mac OS X your system supports is Snow Leopard.

Rear suspension adjusble?


Usually there is a nut on the shock absorber that lets you tighten the compression.
If you turn the nut clockwise, it will make it stiffer, counterclockwise will make it looser.
Generally, sitting on the bike with your feet raised, it should be compressed 20%. Just tighten or loosen as necessary.

How can i fix the brakes on a diamondback octane 24?


Brakes can have a number of things wrong with them, as they are a crucial part of the bikes safety and fairly complicated, this is probably not the best first time project and I would recommend taking the bike into your local bike shop.

If you insist on working on the brakes yourself, and it is good to know how to work on your brakes, then you should get a good repair manual that clearly explains the process and what tools you will need for your specific brakes.

Books are readily available at any bookstore and many bike shops (where you will be buying the parts and most likely tools, anyway)

Here is a couple of good ones. Park tool repair manual (the big blue book) and Zinn and the art of mountain bike maintance.
