In order to raise the handle bars, you will need a hex key. Put it into the hex indentation at the top. Turn it left to loosen it. Then raise the handle bars to the desired height.

SOURCE: how to raise the handle bars? I have been able to

CAREFUL!!!! Go to a professional bike shop and let them see if you have enough stem (about 21/2" to 3") in the top tube. Less than that and it can snap off and you can get seriously hurt. More than likely, if they can raise it, you would only pay a minumum charge (not like a car, probably $5-$10)
It will be more if they have to install a new stem, because it involves taking it apart and putting it back together. But, it will be worth it if you like the bike other than it is not comfortable now. Remember, it is not made to be a cruiser which let you sit upright and are comfortable, Supension bikes are for mountain biking and rough terrain, going downhill and climbing. And you usually ride a smaller frame than normal because of how you ride the bike, too big and you lose control. So, the bars are almost always flat and you lean forward. I hope I answered your question, I have been in business for almost 40 years and do know what I am talking about.

How do you raise the handle bars on the bike?


If it is an older bike, you loosen the bolt at the top of the handle bar shaft until it is about 1/2 inch raised. Take a hammer and give it a swift bump and it should drop into the shaft. Hold the front tire between your legs and the handle bar should raise up. Re tighten once every thing is lined up. If the bike has front hand breakes these may need to be adjusted.

Can not raise the handle bars on the Huffy Mojava Gulch?


You need to loosen the front bolt that holds the handle bars to the front wheel raise it to your desired position and then tighten it again, making sure that the handle bars are at the position you desire them. This will lock them in place so you can ride your bike and not let them fall back down deeper into the front wheel shaft.

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.

Need to raise the handle bar on my 2007 Marin Argenta road bike.


The stem for the marin is fixed so you'd have to replace it with one that is higher if you wanted to raise the elevation of your handle bars. You can pivot the handle bars for your preferred angle of comfort though. Loosen the 4 screws on the top of the stem and then you can adjust the handle bars to the correct angle that is best for you.

Bike gears


usually there are 2 levers on each handle bar, one lever lowers the gear while the other one raises the gear. usually the right handle bar has the shift for the gears on the rear wheel, while the left handle bar has the shift for the pedal gears
