    Big, are you finding that the bar is absorbing more of the vibration? I ve heard good things aobut Easton bars.

    01' Devinci Chilipepper

    When sh*t hits the fan, everything I'm not, made me everything I am.

    Looks nice! However the stem looks a bit high from what I've seen on this forum.

    Before you do, play around with their locations. You can stack spacers ON TOP of the stem, then place the top cap on. As long as the top cap bolt reaches the star nut, you're in good shape.

    IOW, before you go a cuttin, get a ridin with the stem in differunt pose it chuns!

    You guys are both rip-offs. I've been using the exclamation mark ("!") since I was a kid, you shameless plagurizermagyzers.

    I want my exclamation marks back! <-- (There's one right now.)
