    Handlebar

    Currently riding a sunline handlebar on my Yeti which the width is 711mm or 28inches but finding the sweep uncomfortable 5*9. Looking for a tad bit longer 29" with not as an extreme of backsweep. Any suggestions? Anybody tried the answer protaper am?

    the rise and sweep of the diablous bars feels great trail riding. I tried the sunline also . While it works for me on the dh bike it doesn't work for trailriding for me.

    Exactly! I'm running them on my dh but they feel really funky on the xc bike.

    Have the Diablous on the El Rey and it feels nice to me. I did cut it down to 27" though.
    Currently at Mayo Clinic being tested for a kidney transplant. Donors welcome.

    Kore Torsion Bar for around $45 800mm (30"), comfortable and won't break the bank.

    I run the Deity Dirty 30s on both my 6-inch bike and on my SS29er. I cut them to 29 on my fully and left them at 30 on the SS. My personal favorite bars.

    I personally hated the sweep on the Torsion Bars.
    I dig the Deity's, but the Race Face bars are what I'd choose as well.

    answer protapers are very comfortable, pretty straight not a lot of sweep or bend.
