    4 vs 5 degree upsweep on bars

    So maybe I am over thinking this, but just wanted to see how a degree would change anything.

    I am THINKING of trying out a 40mm rise bar. I am running a next r 35mm right now.
    Was thinking of the Enve m7 40mm rise.

    Next R
    rise 35mm
    8 backsweep
    5 upwards

    Enve
    Rise 40mm
    8 backsweep
    4 upwards

    Does the 1 degree change anything?

    I have personally settled on 9 back 5 up. I have broken both wrists multiple times and one degree for me makes a difference. YMMV.
    The suspension of your bike sucks if it's different than mine. Really. It sucks. Big time.

    I guess what I meant is, does it bring the bar closer, or just change the angle of your grip a bit?

    I don't think "upsweep" brings the bar back it just angles the bar up at the second bend of the riser. Backsweep brings the hands back towards the rider.
