I have an extender like this: http://shop.ebay.com/i.html?_nkw=Dim....c0.m270.l1313
The problem is, when I install it on top of the existing spacers, it gets the bars higher than I'd like. However, it looks like if I were to remove those existing spacers, cut the steering stem down, then clamp the new riser on, without any spacers...I'd get the handlebar height I'm envisioning...which was only about an inch or slightly more. Are there any problems in doing this?
Perhaps I'd be better off leaving that area stock and just getting some MTN bike rise bars. The existing are just flat MTN bike bars.
