    I ran this set up on my Steamroller for the longest time using the Nitto Dirt Drop stem with Nitto moustache bars.

    It isn't the cool thing to put on a tarck bike but paired with drops on a bike that will see dirt I think they look pretty badass.

    You need drops up high off-road. Like, hoods level with the seat.

    i cant decide if it would be too high up with risers or a flatbar.
