how tall are you, and what size are your bars?

im 6'1" and i feel the need to buy S&M perfect 10s tonight. my montanas, which are 8.75" tall, are starting to feel small to me.

but ive seen people that are like 8'9" running 6" bars.

just need some opinions because i think im fucking retarded.

thanks.

there isnt really any math for bar height to rider height ratio. yes, taller bars usually feel more comfortable for tall riders but in the end just do what you feel the most comfortable riding!

I personally messed with dif amounts of spacers under the stem until i figured out what felt the best then figured out what size bar rise the equated to

5'9" and 8.25 with a quarter inch spacer.

Dont get new bars, just put a spacer under your stem, even a quarter of an inch will feel really different. Paying money just to get larger bars is stupid.

|

trails are not skateparks, they exist solely from the work and dedication of local riders. so next time you start complaining about not having local trails to ride, you only need look at yourself.
Bike check?
