- How wide are your bars?
a lot of people won’t try wide bars because they can’t see the point or they think its just fashion or marketing.Posted 6 years ago
ive tried bars at loads of different lenghts and for my style of riding i find 730mm to 750mm far better than anything shorter OR longer.730mm giving me more clearance and sharper handling and 750mm slower handling but much better stability and high speed cornering.
also depends on your stem length.i only use 50mm stems,would’nt fancy putting 750mm bars on a 100mm stem.
even if your not into agressive riding though ,i can’t see any benifits of going short than 710mm though i would be intrested to hear what the benifits are?curlie467Member
I had about 600mm on the bike but didnt like the shape, i initially wanted some around 680mm but being a stingy bugger just had to wait to see what turned up 2nd hand.Posted 6 years ago
I have ended up with 700mm wide and they are great but even that wide i thrash them on trees occasionally.
