    Cinelli Pepper risers

    Been thinking of switching to some risers. Anyone own these bars? Is there enough room to comfortably put a cross lever and grips on the bars?

    I'm open to suggestions. I want a narrow riser preferably in 31.8 but I guess I could use a shim and chop the bars down if needed (i.e. if it will save me money)

    I've got them. They fit uncut Ourys and a Tektro cross lever just barely when uncut. Pretty narrow but I like them. Wish they were a hair wider but the rise and bend is just about perfect.

    cool. Thanks for the feedback. I'm looking for something narrow and I like the looks of these. I would be using Ourys and Tektro lever too

    Yeah I was nervous about the width and google imaged it and found some pics with cross levers and gambled.

    You can find them online for like $30-40 so they are actually a good deal, now. Used to be like $60. Have a little less backward bend than most mountain bike risers which sometimes feel strange when you cut them down to an equivalent width. They are well made and look good.

    yeah I had them on my vintage fuji-fixie conversion and I loved them, I just switched to velo drops because I like the feel of them the best, but to each his own I guess. Yeah they're great bars; double butted aluminum, easy to install, and good for urban use!

    Yeah. This bike had drops, now has bullhorns and I am going to switch to the risers. This bike is my main commuter in an urban environment so I want a little more heads up position. But it will be easy to swap the other bars whenever I want anyway

    Yeah it's really easy! You just have to use an Allen wrench to take the stem-thing off, switch out the bars, and then put the stem-thing back on. Good luck bro! Oh and just curious, why do you like risers vs. straight bars?

    I've never had a bike with straight bars so I don't know if I would like them or not

    I see, well just a piece of advice: Origin-8 (they manufacture solid grade bike parts) sells a flat bar under the name of the "Stash Bar" which is pretty good if you're looking for a cheap alternative to a $65 Nitto flat bar. It's really durable, and quite strong too! I think it's like $20, and I know you probably are not looking for a flat bar, but in case you want to ever get the general feel of one, this one is pretty good.
