    Handlebar riser issues

    I just bought a Cannondale Trail 7 and after the first ride, I wanted the handlebars to be a little taller. I'm new at the whole mountain bike thing and this is my first bike since I was a kid. I noticed that the riser and had more of downward angle and thought that I could just flip the riser and get more of an upward angle. I was correct, but now I can't get the riser to tighten down enough on the stem. Any ideas? Thanks

    Little confused but think you are saying that you want more rise out of your handlebars. You found that the stem was flipped with a negative rise so you flipped it over to give you more rise but now you cant tighten it down properly?

    Correct. I figured out that the bolts were not in correctly. Stupid mistake on my end but I have found a few that were a little strange from the shop. Seat bolt came loose on first ride and had to adjust a few other simple things
