    Woodchipper vs Woodchipper 2...what's the difference?

    Looking to try these bars, but I see there are two designations. What's the difference? I'm looking for bars with very short reach. Thanks!

    I'm pretty sure they are made with different aluminium, 6061 vs 7050. The 2 would be a little lighter.

    I'm looking at the Universal Cycles website, which lists both bars. The specs they show for the 2 version says reach is 80mm. They list the reach on the 1 version as 56mm....big difference is true!
