Mike-

The buttons are pretty much the highest you can get. Instead of paying $60+ for bar risers, purchase some new or used stock bar clamps and turn one pair upside down (I use the scotts with a new top clamp (not triple clamp, bar clamp). Use 60mm long replacement bolts as the stock ones will nw be too short. The bars will be about .75" higher and appx 3mm closer. Personally if the bars are too far forward I feel like I'm going to go over the bars.

I know it's hard to visualize from this description. If you need a pic, drop me an email at mike.carpenter@wcom.com

Ergo's are very personal, and this is one way to raise 'em while saving some $$$
