    How low can you go: lowest rise riser bar?

    I am looking for a replacement for my titec flat tracker bars which have comfy riser sweep with no rise. The flat trackers aren't made anymore (boo hoo!) so I guess I will join all the cool kids and run a riser bar but I want minimal rise. What are some of the lowest rise riser bars on the market?

    probably 1/2' rise or something like that.

    i know the Bontrager Crowbars have really small rise riser bars, my friend has an almost flat riser, but i think its around 1/2' or something

    Stay flat!
    The On-One Fleegle bar is 28" wide: http://www.on-one.co.uk/index.php?mo...position=72:72

    The Surly Torsion bar is just over 26".

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    i'm confused: are you wanting a riser bar or a flat bar? why not go a flat bar? you can also change the stem to alter the height of the bar. plenty of good flat bars around.

    He wants a flat bar.

    The Flat Tracer was a flat bar with the same sweep and width as the Titec riser bars. Most flat bars are narrower than risers.

    Trials bike bars are flat and wide; you can get them as wide as 30" (and probably wider too).
