Carver Handbook: How do I adjust the handlebar height?

Basic knowledge about the handlebars

The height of the handlebars relative to the saddle and the distance between the saddle and the handlebars determine the inclination of the back. With low handlebars you sit streamlined and put a lot of weight on the front wheel. This hunched position is more strenuous and uncomfortable as it puts strain on your wrists, arms, upper body and neck.

There are three different stem systems that can be used to vary the handlebar height (conventional, adjustable and Ahead® stem). Each of these systems requires specialized knowledge that cannot be fully conveyed in the following descriptions.

If you have any questions when adjusting the handlebars, please contact a bicycle retailer near you or use the contact form .
