I need help lowering the front of my bike to match the back, I can't slide the forks up in the tubes because the bars are in the way. Just wondering if taller risers for the handlebars would be the best way to go about it
Thanks for any help

You could send it to a shop and have them lower the internals via spacers or something.

If you lower them more than 1.25" your front tire will bottom on the front fender


Have it done professionally
