    Raising The Handle Bars

    Hurray...just bought my first TW that is 1,300 miles away. We bought a place in Arizona and I called the local dealer and got a closeout on a 2013. He is going to hold it for me until the temperature drops below 120 degrees and we make it down in October.

    Question I am 6'4" and want to raise the handlebars so I can ride the pegs without being so hunched over.

    How high can I go without altering cables
    What is the best way
    What are the preferred handlebars

    Thanks for the response

    I'm 5'12 and I raised mine 1 1/8" and am really liking it. I think for my height its perfect. I think I would have found 2" too much. I'm still using stock bars but if you want to switch there's some nice bars on procycle.us

    I'm 5'17" and am very pleased with my ROX 2" riser. Much better adjustability than bars & takes 15 mins. to install. Search for my post about a month ago for pix...

    OK, as my first post, and as a Canadian as well, that's funny.
