Depends. You probably wouldn’t notice unless you’re throwing bars and whips a lot. Bigger bars are usually heavier. Plus the point of contact is lower so it would make a bit of difference technically.

For me it’s mostly looks. I’ll do bars and whips on either. Which o honestly hardly do in the first place.

I agree, aside from this bike (9.75” frontload), on my other bikes I bumped it up to like 9.125” with toploads. Feels perfect even for being kinda tall. The combo on this bike actually ends up at the same height.

Oddly enough almost half my life later I’m gonna try about a 1/2” taller than all those bikes. With the exact same race bike I referred to earlier, because I’ve actually revived it recently. Im interested to see how it feels along with a much shorter stem going real fast.

Honestly, probably 13 years ago there was one pair of “big bars” on the market. Solid Rosanne Bars which are 9x32. Those and a top load stem on my race bike changed the game for me. Nowadays every bike I have something at least that tall. Bigger bars will help shorter guys too I promise. With toptube length it’s all about the wheel base for me.

Thanks! Yea it’s pretty light considering it’s setup for brakeless/pegless. I’m just a hair over 6’ 1” and I usually riding a 21.25” TT this frame feels great though.

Nice to see you still riding that! I'm still on my original, pre-wave Sunday a few times a year.

I know I got a huge stash from pretty much my entire teen life. I’m 30 now so correct era you’re looking for. I’ve been thinking about them lately and when I saw this post I decided I’m gonna go find them in my Moms basement. I’ll let you know when I ... more »

I've ridden with him a couple times recently at Vans in Orange. Yeah he's cool I guess. I don't know him like personally, just have short conversations with people here and there and show respect.

Yep! A video from a couple weeks ago with Kevin Porter he was still shredding that setup. Do you know Nate? He seems pretty cool.
