    Taller handlebars or risers?

    What are my choices for a taller handlebar while keeping the same cable lengths? I want to keep it all stock and just mount new grips and taller bars. Looking at ordering from rocky mountain site.

    You only need a 200cc bike to circle the planet, anything larger is just wheel spin.

    Pleased with my ROX pivoting risers - a bit more height and a bit more reach.

    Lots of different ways you can go. I went to the Rox website and picked out a bar riser. I went with the one that reduces handle bar vibration and a 2" rise. Then go to Pro taper website and choose your bars. You have many choices think about what works best for you. I went with one of the Low Rise bars. Good Luck.

    Hey Fast Eddie, were all of your cable lengths ok? I ordered the same ROX pivoting riser a little while back from Procycle and they have yet to arrive........

    Cable lengths were fine.

    It is so surprising how much of a difference one inch can make on not only your posture but how your bike handles.

    Here's what I did. If you have some basic machining ability and the equipment, (or know the right person) these were fairly easy. Scrap stainless and aluminum from work.

    Well my ROX Pivoting 2" risers arrived today. Installation was maybe 20 minutes and I didn't have to move any cables!
    Mrs putt-putt once said "you wouldn't believe how much difference 2" can make".......and she was right, again............
    I can't believe how much better the handle bars feel now that they are positioned to my preference!
