  • Bars ordered

    Ordered my new bars and cables this morning should be here in about a week 1/2 I can't wait. I will try to post up pics as i go along. I made a set out of PVC this weekend to get an idea of how tall a bar I wanted to go with. (I don't remember if i saw this on the other forum or here but thanks to whomever posted it.) I decided to got with 16" bars.

      I have been trying to figure out how I would measure and select a size...you just showed me. Thank you.

      I'm thinking 14" apes, but honestly wasn't sure. I'll be building with PVC soon

        I thought about going with 14" but after talking with Josh and a couple other people decided to go up to 16" measured these pvc bars at 17 1/2" to account for the risers and they were a perfect fit for me at almost 6'3. Just wish it wasn't going to take almost 2 weeks to get here.

            Didn't know about any gathering, I am assuming you are referring to the Red River. Is it a weekly event?

                            Keeping in mind that the height of your bars is directly related to the height of your risers and your SEAT. I have a Badlander seat. Thin and provides about 1.5" of butt-lift. These are 16" apes on my bike, with 1" risers.

                            If I went to a stock seat, or a Corbin, etc, the seat would be highr and move me up higher, making the bars look just as high, but less of a reach for me.

                            **Note: The technical info I provide is suggestive. I am not a perfeshunel.
