Big(ger) Bars...

...feel amazing. I had some smaller ones on my race bike that have a 6.5" rise and a kid at the track gave me a pair of Shadow 11-B's for free. I'm pretty sure they're the low rise ones (7.25") but they feel really good. He said they should help me with my gates and they make it easier to manual.

big bars make your bike so much more manuverable, and they make it feel lighter and seems easyer to hop

I like my big bars. I think mine were like deflective though. They seem like twisted or something. I may get some slams or some oddysey civilians for $20 off this guy.
