    Handle bar width and slope

    I have a Giant Trance X29 a few months now and love it. One issue is have is the stock handlebars on it is the Giant Connect SL 725mm Bars. I habe changed the stock stem from 100mm to 70mm for better steering. But the bars are still a problem. They have a weird shape which makes my rists very sore after long trails rides. It feel like the weird slope of the bars is stressing my rists? Im a 6'4 guy and feel i need to upgrade the bars. Wondering what size bars all you other big riders are using? Im thinking 750mm but not sure what % up and back sweep and rise i should look for?

    Handle bar width and slope

    I am very happy with my Renthal Fatbar. Can't remember exact width (780mm?) but you can cut them down if you want. Several different rises available but back and sweep are all same and super comfy to me.

    Renthal has very long history in motorcross, high quality stuff.
