Do I just loosen the bolt in the handlebar riser to loosen it up to raise it? Does that beauty ring around it need to move as well? I want to raise it up a few inches

Might want to post up a couple pics, so we can all see what you are working with?

Also to avoid bad advice.

Thanks.

I hate these stems; they're purely a marketing thing. There was nothing wrong with stems before. It's like ten speed cassettes
with a 24T chainring. They've simply reversed the drive train to sell big cassettes, more flexible chains, & more complex
derailleurs. Even when you add a riser your cables probly won't be long enuff to reach the desired height. The bigger
cassettes wear out even faster. A 7 spd freewheel will last 3 times as long. An 11/32 gives more range than I'd ever need.
My 500w bike climbs anything on the two smallest gears. I'd never need to shift if I pedaled a bit harder.
