think they make a triad shock for old stumpy's?
I believe Fox will have a rear shock called the "RP3" for 2005 that works just like the Triad. Speaking of which it's great - each mode is very distinct and has it's own use.

I actually bought a Easton carbon flat right when I bought it ... but it on after having used the riser for a few rides ... then decided to sell the carbon flat.
Give the riser a shot .. they're great.
My old bike had a riser on it and I didn't like it. A riser bar feels way too wide for me. I always end up keeping my hands on the brake lever clamps, rather than on the grips with the riser.
I'm not exactly 3 feet wide, so that's why a flat bar works better for me.
