Q on handlebar set up
(I have no idea is this is the correct forum but I'm an all mountain rider)
I'm changing out to wider bars, got a nice set on loan to try out.
My friend stressed the importance of making sure the "front" of the bars ( where is mounts to the stem) is on the same plane as the fork angle. I can see what she means... mostly... but does anyone have any tips/suggestions for doing this correctly?
I would have posted to the handlebar/stem forum but I guess that's one we don't have.
Thanks for any help, or send me to the correct sub-sub forum.
never heard that. rotate the bars for or aft to find what is comfortable for you. for example i roll my bars back a bit to give me more back sweep and less up sweep.
I've always rode my bars at the same angle as my fork, regardless of if I was on bmx or mtb. Just doesn't feel right to me if the angles arent pretty much the same. More noticeable with bmx, I suspect due to how much farther above the stem your hands are.. but still plenty noticeable with mtb.
