    New question here. What bars are on your Element 29er?

    Just wondering what bar lengths and types are on peoples Element. I have a 950 and ran the stock bars for a while before switching to 640mm bars, now thinking I want to go a bit wider again to about 680-700, with a small bit of rise. I like these ones....

    Stock bars.Tthey are 685 mm. I like them but might replace them with a riser bar.

    ENVE flatbar cut to 660mm,
    I liked them at 680 wide but found I was continually gouging through narrow gaps in trees! Cut them back and haven't noticed any difference at all, infact i hold the bars still a centimetre or so in from the ends of the bars still

    OEM Easton bar. Like quiggs I like them but I slow down at narrow tree gaps b/c of their width and that can kinda kill my flow.
