Do you mean threadless headset?

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 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.

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.

Raising handle bars


Right in the center of the handle bars you will find a nut ( usually allen key) that is in line with the tube going down/attached to the fork of the bicycle. Loosen this nut and unscrew it for about 5mm - don't remove it completely. Take a mallet and hit the nut firmly on its head to force it back the 5 mm unscrewed. It should release the tapered lock inside the tube and the handles can be adjusted. If it is still stuck, unscrew the nut more and repeat the process. After adjustment tighten the nut firmly, while holding the handles in position. It will lock again as it is getting tightened. Make sure it is secure by "clamping" the front wheel between your legs while trying to move the handles in any direction. Handle movement should not be possible when applying moderate to strong force. However, excessive force will result eventually in movement and or damage to the front wheel and is therefor not required.

I need to raise the handle bar on diamondblack Odyssey DB78 mountain bike. It has a "cartridge system inside" stamped on the top post around the allen key. I loosened the alley key but...


Simply web search for "raise the handle bar" and you get lots of resources.

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.

If you had purchased the bike at a reputable Bicycle Shop they would have fit the bike to you before you took it home.

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 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.

Schwinn Impact MOS.....can the handle bars be raised? If so, do you loosen the small star nut on top, or the large nut at the base of the handle bars?


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.

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.
