  • attention racers:question?

    i have new stems and handlebars on order and i plan cutting my flybars down and installing them. before i started cutting, i wanted to take kind of a survey from ya'll out there who's racing, on how tall you are and how high it is from your bars to the ground? so.....if you have a little time on your hands and don't mind throwing a tape measure out and getting that distance from bars to grips to ground, i would TOTALLY appreciate it! also, include your heigth. again, this is to just get a rough idea of where i might be cutting mine. thanks!!

    Cut them so that The handle bars are at your waist for Juming, for racing, drop them down an inch below your waist.
    Modded out Super x ped, G2d xped,
    Modded out Yamaha wave blaster, and a Stock Yamaha wave raider.

      On sports, a VERY good measurement is 24 inches from the bottom of the pole to the top.

      But you have flys, so from the top triple clamp to where you gonna cut i would go like 24 inches.

        thanks fellas! i will of course cut the bars to where i feel the most comfortable, but this is very helpful to hear some other measurements(just getting a feel how low people go).
