I recently decided to come out of a 26 yr. retirement from BMX racing and get back into biking again @ age 42. After some brief research and limited budget I just purchase an '08 Hardrock Sport and I love it! I haven't done much dirt/trail riding yet but I definitely plan on hitting trails, jumps etc. Anyhoo... I don't feel the need to do any major upgrades at this point but I'm thinking maybe a bit wider/higher on the bars would be more my style. I don't want to spend too much money or end up with something inferior to the stock bars but I have no idea of the quality/cost of them either:
STEM Specialized 3D forged alloy, two bolt, 25.4mm, 10 degree rise
HANDLEBARS Alloy 25.4mm, 640mm wide, 38mm rise, 8 degree back, 6 degree up sweep, 3.2mm thick
Can anyone recommend an inexpensive upgrade? Should I also replace the stem?
Is something like this even worth considering?
P.S. How do I measure stem length on the stock stem? end-end? Center-Center?
