    I can ride my bike with no handlebars.

    No handlebars.

    No handlebars.
    I stop for people / whose right of way I honor / but not for no one.

    The ones that help you type in English so people can understand what you're trying to say.

    I don't like Slams, but they're recommended by everyone. I like my Shadow 11-B Bars, I just wish they were about an inch wider on each side. An education in the English language is also recommended.

    I agree, I've tried them before and I think they are too tall and a bit too wide. I've never tried the Shadow ones before but my shop has em and they look nice.

    To me it feels like they bend downwards. I think it's because they have like no upsweep and they are so wide and tall. It makes them feel awkward.

    It says they have 10*, but it doesn't seem like they have that much, well compared to my old race bars anyhow. There are also 13-B's now which have an 8" rise and 12* of backsweep and an Anti-Sweep bar that only has 5* of backsweep. I hope that was good enough.

    I'm pretty sure they mean they can ride their bike with no hands. Not having handlebars and riding it quite a challenge and I'd bet money that they couldn't.

    No, they have 2* more of backsweep and the Anti-Sweep 13-B's only have 5* of backsweep.

    Get the High Rise ones. They have a 7.75" rise. I like mine, but for racing I wish they had another inch on each side for more leverage. Right now I'm riding with my pinky off the bars.

    Yeah they would be fine. In racing, the more leverage you get, the faster you're going to go, so I want wider bars so I can get more leverage.
