Hi guys! Like you said a few days ago, my bar´s crack is huge now, and my frame is bending. Photo
So i have been looking at bars and frames. I can get the WTP Patron and the WTP Od bars for really cheap, and they have the geometry that i want, 8.5¨. The bars that i have now are 8.1 with a cult salvation and 2 spacers. Will it be okay if i quit 1 or both spacers? Also, what do you think about the bars? I would apreaciate some recommendations, my budget for bars is 50€, i am from spain so no american webs xD. Just chain and winstansley appart from spanish ones.
Also, i am going to change my frame. Since its my first aftermarket frame i dont really know what tt size will be okay for me. Now i am running a 20.5 tt and it feels short. I am 5 ft 6 59/64 inch, what would be better, a 20.75 or a 21? I am also going to ask for the geo, i am looking for a street geo, but how does the standover heght and the bb height affect to the riding?
I have seen the WTP Scorpio 2013 frame and the bsd wza v3, wich one is better for pure street riding?

Well if you think your frame feels short go lil bit bigger. You said your 5'6 and it feels short. so go with 20.75. Then if it STILL feels small get a stem with a longer reach. But i doubt it would feel small still. Or if you wanna just say screw it just go with a 21. Im 6'2 1/2 and i ride a 21.25.

Oh and your bars? Definetley go bigger and just try em with all the spacer still on. Then if you like it, leave em on, if you dont take one off, and so forth. But i think it would be perfect with no spacers. Just expirement. But definetely go bigger bars.

If you could find some. But if you can get those 8.5 ones for cheap just leave your spacers in and your basically at 9"

i can get a 9´for cheap, the wtp patron 2013 bars, but they weight like 26.73 oz, isnt that too light?
And i also have a cult salvation tl stem, so it will be more than 9.

If you're 5 6 then your arm span should be about the same. I wouldn't go bigger than 8.5x28.5. I'm 6'1" and my bars are 28.125x29. Huge bars are trendy but you'll be better odd ignoring trends and trying something set up for someone your size. If you have really wide shoulders and a longer arm span, I'd suggest Mutiny Glam v2s. Short but wide. I love mine.
