    Niner upside down carbon bars

    Well I got a set of Niner upside bars to try the sweep and the wider width than my other paper boy bars and so far I like'em. They look a little different from the front but from the saddle they have cool look.
    Don't beat me up on the spacer and drop bars the stem is a point one
    so the stem is also the top cap, heres some pics.

    I STILL think this is a ploy of a marketing ******* who is trying to dump a batch of bars w/ upside down logo/graphics stenciling screw up from the fab plant...

    I was messing with rotating my bars recently. Took off about an inch of grip height and an inch of reach just by turning them 45 degrees.

    I used a string to show the grips are higher than the top cap and about even with the stem clamp center before rotating:

    This one is after rotating

    OP:
    Don't mind us. We're CO/Front Range ppl. We're going stir-crazy due to the fact that we can't ride, because our State is flooding... So, we come online and spread our misery...and do crazy **** like pull strings across our bar.

    I don't see any "upside down bars" on the Niner web site. Are you sure you didn't install them backwards?
