It came off, messing around with the bearings and help from my boyfriend...
still need some advice on taking the handelbars off...
Use an allen wrench to loose the stem, then it seems like they are still stuck, give it a gentle but firm hit with a hammer (right on the bolt you just loosened).
The way the stem stays in place is it has a piece that is pulled up when you tighten the bolt, and that sometimes sticks just by friction.
