handlebar risers, is this mechanics?
yo, i'm a newb here.
i just wanted to know if anbody had any ideas for handlebar risers. i got this basic commuter raleigh bike with an adjustable handle bar riser (which i have tried to make a 90 degree negative rise, like inline with my stem that is), fork shocks, seat shock (hard tail), trigger shifter and a rack i painstakingly attached from my old bike and tried to make sure the bolt didn't obstruct my chain and gears.
anyhow i'm getting off topic, my handlebar riser is stock and adjustable which through no more than a year has worn away at the grooves which supposedly allow it to lock in a position but now it slips like butter when i apply my front brake or attempt to ride a curb. but back to the topic, i wish to find a non-adjustable welded handlebar riser that will bring my handle bars to a decent height and closer to my seat so i need not hunch over to turn.. i don't know what size of stem i need, the size of my handle bar's tube or the rise i require for this riser but i shall make a new post stating these in emperial and metric.
PS: i would prefer not using creditcard numbers over the internet so if any winnipeg/manitoba/canada locals know of shoppes i can visit i would prefer that over mail orders.
