- New bars and stem
I had a significant crash a few weeks ago, clipped my bars, hit the dirt and bust my ribs.
Should I change my bars as I think I can feel flex in them.
Currently running flat bars, standard Specialized Epic. Looking at perhaps a wider riser, should I shorten the stem? What will it change as I want a slightly more comfy cockpit. Bars are 680mm at the moment would like wider aswell as I am quite wide.
Any advice.Posted 7 years agomjsmkeMember
Wider bars and shorter stem will give you more comfort and it will shift your weight back a little.
I went from narrow flats and a 110mm stem to wider risers and a 100mm stem years ago and never looked back.
Why not try the wider bars first before buying a new stem too?
I picked up some Sunline V1 bars and Sunline XC-One stem from CRC in the sale a few weeks ago after my carbon bars had some flex after several crashes.Posted 7 years ago
