How to Raise the Handlebars on a Mongoose

    Step 1

    Unscrew the bolt at the center of the head-stem where the stem is connected to the headset. This is the point where the handlebars pivot on the stem.

    Step 2

    Unscrew the bolts connecting the handlebars to the head-stem. Note the location of the brake cables. Loosen and remove them.

    Step 3

    Slide the existing stem off the headset. Slide the new riser stem onto the headset.

    Step 4

    Replace the handlebars and bolts onto the new riser stem. Replace the brake cables in the correct positions.

    Step 5

    Replace and tighten the bolts at the center of the head-stem. Tighten everything securely and then test-ride your bike to ensure a quality fit.
