I bought this Giant ATX880 back in 1995 but never like the position you are in when riding it. It feels like you are about to go over the handlebars all the time and the tires are not right for what I am riding on surface wise. Is there some component or components that will correct this? I am hoping to raise the handlebars a few inches. Currently it has a DIA Compe AHeadset with a Tranz X Zanzi stem and Answer Alumilite 7075 handlebars. Put these handlebars on in hopes of getting it raised up but still to low. Any suggestions on what I can do to raise the handlebars up? As for the tires it hand some Panaracer Hard Core Dart's on it which are 2.10 wide a few years back was looking for something in between the Panaracer and a slick but could only find a slick that is 1.5 wide. Hoping one of the manufacturers has come out with a tire that is 50% hard surface (cement/blacktop) and 50% off road trail riding that is 2 iches wide. Any suggestions would be helpful. I post a similar thread on the General Discussion Page but no one has replied.
Any ideas and what components would be helpful. Thanks
