Handlebar Height
#1
I have a 21 speed mountain bike. I find leaning forward uncomfortable while riding. I want to raise my handlebars so that I am sitting in a more upright position, but my handlebars are at their height limit. How can I raise the height of my handlebars more?

It'll depend on what type of headset you have (<a href="http://bikeride.com/overhaul-threaded-headset/">threaded</a> or <a href="http://bikeride.com/adjust-threadless-headset/">threadless</a>). If you're not sure, upload a pic to this thread and we'll get it figured out!

Having compared what I have to the tutorials here, I have a threadless headset.
