    The bike is a Schwinn Searcher with adjustable handlebars whish has a allen head bolt on it side of the neck shaft.

    I never touched these to tighten them and to me they seem a little bit stripped out. I tried a 3/16" and a 7/32" allen wrench but they were too small or too big.

    I do not want to strip it out anymore then it is already...

    Are these bolts mertric, and if so what size are they?

    They're sure to be metric. 6 mm is a common size for handlebar bolts.
