    Are your shoulders wider than 40cm? For me that would be a little short.

    are you measuring edge to edge? If you are it's actually a 38cm.

    what the **** kind of question is this? if YOU think theyre fine, then theyre fine. What, are they gonna be too short to be legal? (38 states require 41cm bars).

    I hope Oregon is not included in that list.

    Eeither way, I am fine as my bars are ~41cm.

    this is BFSSFG, personal opinion doesn't matter here. it's the mass opinion that does.

    @squeegeesunny in anycase, your handlebars are good man. Don't sweat it. If you feel that they are too narrow just buy a different set of cheap risers and put em on.

    QTF everyone has to develop their own style. Do what you do and the way you like it, that's what truly makes things cool.
