    Hold on..

    I have a question about handlebars. What does more or less back sweep do? Not sure if this is right, but it feels like handlebars with less back sweep handle much more crisp, as in faster turning. Also what would be preffered for bunny hopping and jumping?

    Wink

    MORE "backsweep" will equate to a more comfortable hand position.

    Ideally, a stem JUST long enough to afford you the toptube clearance you need, and enough "back sweep" to afford you comfort would equal perfection!

    I think Jeff Jones has it down to near perfection. I could be wrong, but don't think so!

    The trouble with common sense is it is no longer common

    Good job!

    Me too....until the future owner claims 'em!....

    I bought some from MC as a gift for a buddy who already has some. Had to try 'em out myself first, just making sure this set is worthy...I'll possibly hate giving them up.
