    flat handlebars vs. raised, I need opionons

    I just ordered some flat handlebars for my mountain bike. I will be racing this season. Does anybody know the advantages and disadvantes to having a flat handlebar compared to a slightly raised bar. I keep having nightmares that I am not going to be able to steer or control my bike as well as I normally do. Can I get some feedback from people who ride with flat handlebars.

    Hey nabdo,

    I read your cross post in the mtn bike forum.

    First I want to say welcome to the forums.

    Secondly, I want to say "cross posting" (same post in 2 or more threads) is to be avoided to reduce confusion. Not a biggie, just something we try to reduce (o.k., we delete duplicate threads) [Think, overbearing cop voice]But we'll let you off with a warning. Just don't let me catch you doing it again or it's the slammer for ya.

    Thirdly, I noticed your location is Florida. What parts? Quite a few of us from down here. Not too many mountain bikers though. Fewer mountain biking females.

    Again welcome.
