    Quick question about OS bars

    Are OS bars the same diameter from end to end or just OS in the clamp area? Thanks!

    You can get one of those gel-padding bar wrap kits, that way they'll feel thicker and offer some extra shock absorption.

    The gel stuff works well if you have bigger hands. Some people don't like it though.
