I have nicked the Deity bar off my hardtail to build up my Wildcard but I need to buy a new bar so it can go back to the hardtail. With a 65mm easton vice with 10 degree rise the Deity feels perfect on the hardtail for jumping as it does on the Wildcard, 10-12mm of spacers, but one of my main goals in building up the Wildcard is a combination of mini dh and freeride. My cornering as it is a weak point and needs loads of work as I have been mainly working on my jumps and drops. I will be fitting a Thomson 70mm stem which has 0 degree rise and I need to decide on a mid rise or high rise bar to match. I have noticed alot of DH rigs are fitted with low to mid rise bars and I was curious to know why etc. I am a little concerned that a 0 degree rise on the stem and a mid rise bar will be well low and I wood like to keep the spacers to no more than 15-20mm.
Appreciate any tips.
