Probably. Getting Riser Bars or a riser stem 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.

Raising handlebars on schwinn ditch 2.0 dn


The above answer is incorrect. The Ditch has what is called a "threadless" fork/stem setup. One cannot raise the stem at all unless there are spacers above it. Raising the stem is also not the only option. A stem with a shorter "reach" may be sufficient. Google "threadless stem riser" to see options for raising the stem. Following is a video with the procedure.

What is the shape of the handle bars on the Schwinn High Timber Girl's bike?


These are certainly not racing style bars; but the modern, hybrid riser handlebar.

They will not sweep back toward the rider as much as a beach cruiser handlebar; but could be adjusted rearward to come closer to the rider. They definitely allow for a more upright riding position than many other handlebars though.10_19_2012_7_26_19_pm.jpg

Adjust handlebar height on Schwinn Varsity


I'm answering 7 years later. I have a Schwinn Varsity 2500 Bike made probably in 2015. The Schwinn Varsity Bike is not set up the same way as a traditional bike. I loosened the center compression bolt and the two side stem clamp bolts and it came loose where I can adjust it up or down but, there's nothing to tighten the slack up below. I did some research. My original post here was to add or remove a spacer. I think you can remove a spacer to lower but, I don't think the stem is long enough to add another one. I've seen they sell an extension that you can add-on to make the handle bars higher.

I want to adjust the handle bar height on my graft pro 24 speed mountain bike

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.

How do you raise the handlebar of a Schwinn Ridge AL 26" bike? I want to add a child carrier and I need to raise the handlebar to make it fit.


The handlebars stem is an Aheadset-style and as such has spacers below it to set its height. Once the steerer tube is cut to fit the combination of stem and spacers there's no going UP, only down. Stems can be replaced with different rises and lengths. Maybe that would help. A Bicycle Shop would have everything you need and the know-how to decide if you can mount the child carrer.
