    well, for dirtbiking, i know that the bars should generally be the same width as your shoulders. i dont know if the same rule applys to bikes

    I may need to do this on my new bike, I'd try about 1cm then ride it see how it handles and cut more if I need to. Rember you can cut it down, but not add.
    If your not bleeding your not trying hard enough, now excuse me while I get my bike dirty.
