Renthal High Bars
« on: 03 May 2017, 12:48:58 PM »
Anyone fitted them and were all cables etc. long enough. Got ultra lows currently fitted and they are too low (oddly enough) and too wide for me.
All info. gratefully received
Cheers

Hi,
I had the original bars with variobar risers, I had to get longer brake lines but the cables were ok.
After an accident last year I fitted renthal bars, medium road I think they are and I had to remove the bar risers as the cables were far too tight. You maybe lucky, but if the bike still has the original brake lines, it may well be worth getting longer/braided ones anyway? If you say you are a member of the FOC then HEL give you a decent discount, I think I got nearly 25%.

I'm going to cut the ends down by 20mm Gaz to see if they suit me better before I try high bars so sort of ruins their second hand value, I found Bykebitz the cheapest for new ones.

Thanks for the reply, how much longer did you get your brake lines, going to try my cut down ultra lows first though .
