    Why do superfly's come with 12 degree bend bars???

    Looking at them and noticed their bars have a bigger sweep than the other ones (8 and 9 degree). Does it have to do with the whole genesis geometry deal? I'm almost afraid of it. Educate me on this. thanks and Happy New Year!

    It's not that big of a deal.
    Try it...you might like it.
    And it's not that much different than many riser bars.
    If you don't like...it's an easy change.

    I just wasn't sure if it was spec'd because of the longer tt, shorter stem thing that fischer was doing.

    Looks terrible. I thought I was going to hit my knees with the bars when I test rode one. I would change it right away if I bought one.

    I got one on my '08 Fly. Liked it so well I put 'em on 2 other bikes, including an '09 SS Fly. The cockpit is long enough, and they put your hands in a bit better angle, at least for me.

    Bike set-up is personal, though, but they won't kill you if you give 'em a shot. The same bar comes in 17 degree, and I am thinking of trying those on the SS, with a bit longer stem. My stems are all the stock 105mm set-up.

    i've got a 2010 sf100. i thought for sure that the bars where gonna get changed. after racing it in 2010, the stock bars are still there.
    I just like riding my mountain bike.

    Has to do with your G2 geometry and having your hands over the axle centerline. Was a Keith Bontrager suggestion to G.F. when he came up with the G2idea. Agreed, it looks a little hinky... but those bikes handle really nice.
