    I bought a pair of chrome slams for $5. They are the best investment on my bike.

    So how short can you cut those things? I wouldn't mind some taller bars, but I like them around 23 inches wide so I don't know if slams would be good. They're kind of expensive too... (Actually I guess the ones I saw were the XLT ones, I think they were 70 bucks at the shop)

    It's upright already, and the steer tube is cut too far to add spacers. I also think I cut mine a little too short now that I've had a chance to ride with them a lot.

    I would say you could cut Slams to about 24ish before you get to the bends and uncomfortabley short grips.

    I would have to agree considering they can be cut a bit more then Slams but still have the high rise.

    Plus they look tight and not many people have them. You'll be original!

    Scerbo's look awful, beringer's can be cut short but still maintain the 8" rise

    Scerbos look really cool... and even Edwin runs them not and he does hop truckdrivers with them, so something must be good there.

    I've been thinking about getting some bigger bars, my wrists start to hurt about mid way through each ride.

    Right now it's a toss up between Odyssey Lumberjack bars, Shadows bars or s&m Slam XLT's.

    Look who you're talking to here.

    Also, one of the shops here has some chrome Slam XLT's that I'm probably picking up this week if I have the disposable cash after I pick up my wheels and cogs tonight.

    My slams are cut to 24.5 with stretched out odi longnecks. I hold them near the bend or even a little on the bend which is probably close to 23ish. It feels good to me.

    My le-tigre's are cut to around 24.5", I'll probably keep my XLT's uncut for a bit and see how they are.
