Note: the bike must be in the big mode before adding pedals
It’s possible to raise the handlebars by up to 30mm by following the instructions below:
1 – Loosen the two black 6mm allen bolts on the side of the stem.
2 – Remove the silver 5mm allen bolt from the top of the stem then remove the top cap, the stem and the 15mm spacer.
3 – Fit the spacer over the fork tube then place the stem on top of the spacer.
4 – Fit the top cap then tighten the silver 5mm allen bolt until snug so there is no forward/backward play in the headset bearings (best to pull the front brake while doing this).
5 – Align the handlebars with the front wheel and tighten the two 6mm allen bolts securely.
6 – Check the handlebars are secure by holding the front wheel between your legs and ensure the handlebars cannot move independently of the wheel.
It is possible to get an additional 15mm of handlebar height by flipping the stem during the process above. It wasn’t designed aesthetically to work upside down but it will function perfectly.
