    Put some 730s on a few weeks ago tired of getting caught up in the undergrowth

    Will go back to 760-770 when it’s died off

    800mm. Planned to cut them down but loving them. Now going to get some wider ones for my HT as the 710mm feel freakishly narrow every time I jump on it.

    710mm they were 780mm but i chopped them down as they just felt and obviously more importantly looked silly 😉

    Familiar pattern that. Longer bars fitted to DH bike. Old bars handed down to AM bike. AM bike bars handed down to hardtail. Longer bars on DH bike. Repeat.

    my first MTB back in 1992 had 508mm bars.

    That narrow bar trend was a fad that died out pretty quick!

    My bikes are practically vintage now, from 2007, so they have tiny narrow bars. I just had a lookat LoCo’s Remedy and the bars looked ridiculously wide. 1.5m or something.

    720 but just bought 785 for a new build (might cut them down tho)

    760 on all of mine now- cut down a little from 780, that genuinely was the point I couldn’t fit through some of the gaps without developing elite manualturnbar skills

    710mm on the FS
    685mm on the HT

    The 685 bars came off the FS when I got the 710 bars. If I wasn’t such a tight arse, I’d probably get the same width bars for the HT as well.

    Can’t imagine going any wider though.

    750mm on the 29er HT, 800 on the big FS. The 750s feel quite narrow now.

    Another one with 800mm. Couldn’t go back now, anything narrower feels…err…narrow!

    720 – the stock ones that came with my bike.

    760 seems to be my sweet spot though.
