Just taken delivery of a Polygon Trid ZZ frame after finding a mega closeout deal on a new one (40% off!), pretty stoked.

Yours looks great!

Finally got mine built at the weekend, quick roll around the road and it feels gooood. Just some tweaks then deciding if I'm going to chuck some gears on or not.

Just wondering what kind of bar widths people are running on the slope bikes?

I run wide bars like 30"-31" on slope bikes, I find it helps with the added weight of the slope frame.

I have 750mm.

750 on all my bikes but I'm pretty tall. My shorter friends run 720 and 710.

Is 780 too wide? I just didn't cut my bars

Has more leverage but gets in the way. I ran 780 but wasn't trying barspins the same as 760 or 720.

I’ve always liked the wide bar feel, so typically I run 760-770. With a long frame they seem fine for bar spins. Narrower bars would be easier to spin, but I don’t do em very often.

I am 6'4“ or 194 cm, and have a large Two6Player. I was considering cutting them, but I kind of like the feel. Also it's easier to adapt to the downhill bike, which also has 780 bars.
