I've been going back and forth with friends and mx reps over which handlebar bend is the best for the tall rider. Now, all agreed that new triple clamps with adjustability forward of 20mm is great for a tall rider. I bought them and they work great. I also got taller bar mounts than the standard that came with the clamps. This is where the controversy begins. Two very respectable sources told me that i should use the shorter bar mounts b/c they will give me more room, whereas the taller, since they are on the angle of the steering head will come back closer to me. Since this sounds logical, then wouldn't taller handlebars also do the same. Crowd a taller rider. So the ideal set of bars I guess I am looking for are low with as little drawback toward the rider as possible. Basically a flat and low bar bend. I would like your opinions on the opinions I wrote and any suggestions you guys have.
