    Risers : how wide?

    thinking of going the "riser" path.

    currently running 40-42 cm road drops/bullhorns. how wide of a riser bar are you guys running?

    The usual rule for road bike fitting is to multiply your hat size by 4.1 and then add the age at which you lost your virginity.

    I ride a 44.

    That might explain his confusion. He can substitute the age at which he decided to save it for Jesus.

    Shoulder width. It's comfy that way and you get more leverage. There's a reason road bars aren't 8 inches wide.
    Sucks to your ass-mar!

    As wide as you like. I cut them so that the front of the grip just barely touches the rise.

    To match your drops/bullhorns cut the risers ~10cms wider.
