    Which Handlebars......

    If any

    i wrecked and bent my azonice double wall bars...they are only bent probably a few millimeters and i am wondering if they are still ridable at all. if i do get new bars i would like to get something with the 31.8 set up.

    i was kinda lookin at the race face diabolus' but they are f'in heavy

    any input would be good...
    I wish my grass was emo so it would cut itself...

    ride what u got

    If you replace 'em, Get the same ones. unless you really want the bigger diameter. I use azonic dw's, and I love em. I've had a hard time finding 28 inch wide bars, anything else feels funny to me. too narrow. i'm sure after using azonic dw's you'd notice the difference in width too. unless you cut em down. actually, I think diabolus is 28 inch wide...?
    i want to post more but i can't stop riding!

    i didnt notice till i ran my finger over the upsweep part just to the left of the stem clamp. u can feel alittle bit sharper of a bendage than the right.....

    if you change to a 31.8m bar...which i think by now anyone should have for obvious reasons...

    then the Protaper OS is 690mm in length and comes with 2" of rise...best bar on the market id have to say...

    otherwise i cant help you...but goodluck in looking for a bar dude...normal Protapers only come in 660mm which i was unnaware of...

    If you decide to go with an OS bar, Truvativ makes the Holzfeller riser in OS 31.8, with a 25, 35 & 50mm rise and 28" wide.

    I've got a brand new Easton Vice stem and matching bar, both 31.8 that will be going up on ebay at some point. If you're interested let me know, i'll send ya pics and more details.
