I love my 20" & i just recently switched out to 8.5" Bars. Its properly fun little ride but i really want another bike that's longer, more stable & almost a bit less responsive! I know people rip on Perfect 10 owners, even i do! But i am a big guy & i am interested to know what they feel like. Pretty much every big guy i know that has them sings their praises, PLUS there are a couple of companies coming out with 10" Bars that aren't S&M so i wouldn't be a hypocrite because i wouldn't be riding Perfect 10s lol.
Well Topsey, I was sure I would see more of you ripping on big bars in here, but I was wrong. I can honestly say that the only reason I got the Perfect 10's to begin with is because I had the Hoders mates to an Odyssey classic top load, and when I bought the challenger, it dropped my bars quite a bit. So there I was, thinking, well wtf do I do now, get the bars I have seen all the 5'4" kids buy? I looked at some other options, but the geo is the same as Hoders with the extra height. I like the width because I'm not a small guy, and they place my hands right at shoulder width, maybe a little narrower. I wish more of us lived near each other, so we could check out how other parts feel without buying them. I can't wait to feel some different offset forks, and a shorter cs length frame, and maybe even a shorter TT length, since my last frame had a 19" TT.
