I'm finding that the stock handlebars seem low for me when standing, even in the attack position. So I decided to order some new handlebars. I know a lot of people like the Windham bend, but just under 5'10" I was worried they would be too tall. So I went with the pro taper evo Henry/reed bend.
When I got the new handle bars I could tell right away they almost seemed the same size as stock. I tried to take some pictures to compare. I wasn't about to take them apart with the crap I have on there, but from what I can tell there is very little difference in height. There suppose to be 8 higher then the YZ bend. It didn't look like it to me. Looks like I'll be sending them back and going to Windham.
Just curious, I also notice that these bars would need to be cut a good half inch on both sides to match the stock bars. I done some MTN Bike riding and wider bars have quite a big benefit. Do most of you that replace bars keep them same width as stock? or go to a wider bar?
