Easiest/cheapest way to raise my bars? (Tall riders)
Posted August 15, 2006 - 02:56 PM
I'm 6' 7" and I have never really had a need to stand allot during my riding (which is mostly on-road commuting or blasting down nice wide logging roads). I know I know, I suck, but I used to always ride street bikes.
Recently I have seen the light and now spend every available second on single track trails (or quad trails). Needless to say I found out pretty quick the benefits of standing while riding. But, being 6' 7", the bike is just not made with me in mind, and I cannot stand very comfortably at all.
Long story short, what is the easiest way to substantially raise my bars without spending a ton o' cash? What do other tall riders do to accommodate there height?
Any help would be much appreciated

I have a new set of bar risers that I would sell. Send me a e-mail if you are interested.

I'll ask him.
Funny looking or not... I bet his back thanks him swallowing his pride a bit.
Did he have to re-route or get longer cables?
