The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 196 - The Industry Ideas That Just Keep Coming Back
I think that’s true to a point. Look at Dak’s setup. Crazzzyyy high. Or is it? I’d be curious to know his body proportions, bike measurements, and what he’s achieving/hoping to achieve. My bar/spacer combo is damn high too but I have a super long torso. I think someone of “average” proportions on a given size bike may struggle if they try to go super high, so like I said it’s probably sometimes true!

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 196 - The Industry Ideas That Just Keep Coming Back
@DaveRobinson81: that all makes sense! My bars have a decent amount of sweep too. I think they match up pretty close to a cr high pro taper dirt bike bar, so it makes sense that I like them. The way I see it, I have a torso pretty comparable to an human that’s 6’4” or so. With low standover and long droppers, along with the short cranks, my reach needs to match my torso most importantly. Have you tried short cranks yet?

The Pinkbike Podcast: Episode 196 - The Industry Ideas That Just Keep Coming Back
I enjoyed the bar/rise/stack/angle/spacers discussion. As a human that is 6’ 1 1/2” tall, with a 30.5” inseam, bike fit is pretty hard. So, I’m running 10mm of spacers, a 50mm Thomson bmx stem, and some 3.5” chromoly riser bars from Defiance frameworks, on an xL Bird Aether 9 with 529mm reach, and a 210mm dropper (I could go 240), and 155mm cranks. Best fitting bike I’ve ever had. I’d like to hear more conversation not just about height, but maybe inseam to torso ratio, ape index (which I’ve heard mentioned recently), and other factors in how a bike needs to fit. I’d be down to discuss my reasoning on any of these parts!
