Handlebar bends, what do you run and why ?
Posted February 03, 2002 - 10:14 PM
I haven’t really experimented with bars nor do I know what bend to use and why.
Can someone shed some light on this subject ?

I posted two links to MX south pages last night. That post is gone this morning. They have bar dimensions on their pages. If you look at mx south under answer or tag in the brand name catagory they have dimensions of all the bends. http://www.mxsouth.com/

I'm 5'6" and I run Tag T2 YZ ( wich is really a McGrath bend) with Vortex triple clamps in the forward position.
I adjust them quite high (rotated forward), that's something that makes quite a difference for riding agressively, over the front, and to help with regrip without dropping your elbows.

Le Racer – I do exactly the same thing
I’m usually very indecisive about these things, thanx guys for all your recommendations
