    Stearing Bar Angle for Fantom 29 X7?

    Hey Guys,

    does anyone know the stearing bar angle for the original one?

    i have no idea how to measure it and i'd like to buy a one with a bigger angle. unfortunately testing some bars and finding out via trial and error isnt an option here.

    thanks,

    From comparing pics it looks to be unbranded Skye components as used on the 700 HT. If no one knows probably fairly easy to email BD and ask.

    Looks to be a 15 degree rise.

    EDIT: Apologies, for some reason I thought you were referring to the stem angle. Which angle are you talking about? Do you want a bar the has more rise (the grips are higher), or do you want a bar more angled back?

    lol, not exactly.

    no, i just want to have a slightly bigger angle, from what i found out most bars seem to be in the 0/6/9/11 degree area, so whatever the original has i would just go one bit higher.

    seems i need to undigg my math skills again
