Hi, Is there a way to raise the handle bar? I leaning too forward and it's not comfortable.
Thanks for the info, I am in Spain now so I will have to take it one of the regular bike shops around here.Saw this in the owners manual:
The eBicycle is equipped with a "threadless" stem, which clamps onto the outside of the steerer tube. A qualified service provider may be able to change handlebar height. Find qualified service providers at www.Serial1.com.
I don’t see them raising the bars very much as there is only so much steer tube above the head tube it’s further complicated by the electrical wiring and brake lines running through their as well.
I surprised they didn’t fit the bike with an adjustable handlebar stem to accommodate everyone’s preference.
This is interesting, where can I find your solution?I exchanged some emails with Serial one on this very topic. They said we could not do it and suggested I look into handlebar extensions. I did and posted recently on the “solution”

Funny, my email exchange says they CANNOT do it, despite my pointing it out in the manual that it can be done by an authorized dealer.

If Serial1 had the option of different handlebars with internal routing all that would be required is a pair of TRP hose couplers (for 5mm hose), new olives & barbs and extra 5mm hose to accommodate the extra distance inside the different bars. There is plenty of length for the control wires to the Brose system stuffed inside the handlebars so long as the bars aren't significantly different, like on their Chopper project. The most significant limitation to the change of bars is the internal routing of the front hose. by having it come through the steer tube and the Star Nut it has to be routed through the stem and bar. If the stem had an exit hole underneath the hose could be routed out and then be exposed like on other bikes.
Interesting 4 spacers. My bike only has 2 spacers. That stem angle appears to be dropping. It is possible to flip the stem gaining a bit of rise isn’t it? I can see it might not fit back together quite right.There’s one problem with installing more spacers under the stem. You’ll run out of steer tube (in yellow) to clamp with the stem. The front brake line (in red) travels through the inside of the steer tube. The rear brake, Brose wires and lighting wires (in blue) are routes up the downtube, up the head tube and through the stem.
You can’t add more stack height to the spacers. View attachment 403
