    Surly open bars with rise.....up or down?

    Why is this such a hard thing to decide? Maybe it depends on the bike in question...lol! Perhaps a poll is in order?
    How do YOU run them?

    I can't decide:

    Or like this:

    Both of those settings look extreme to me.

    Get the zero rise Open Bar.

    What matters is: which way feels the best for you?

    The no-rise open bar came on my Troll. I like the bars, but would have been a little happier with a slight rise.
