Just in case anyone wants to take the endless bar height argument out of the 20" thread and put it here instead.

Bonus topics: bar width, upsweep, backsweep, steer tube spacers, stem rise, number of bar pieces

I ride 9" bars that are 30" wide, to match my penis.

Why don't we add in bar sweeps, steer tube cuts or all spacers, and stem rise to the mix?

4-5 degrees of upsweep is the best

I'm running Stranger 4 piece bars. Like 8.75 high and 28 wide but they've been cut down i believe.

Can we add the number of pieces your bars have to the discussion? Lol

8.75 tall they were 29" wide but I cut them down to about 28 maybe a tad more

The issue with bars right now is as they go up they get wider, people's shoulders don't just get more massive, so kids not only ride bars way to big, but they hold them on the bend, a 9 inc rise (8.75 if I had my way) 28 or even 27 inch wide bar is the way forward in my opinion. Kids be lookin stoopid.
