Hi Folks, A friend of mine's son uses the bike he bought to travel to and from his work, but it's giving him a bit of back ache. I think the frame is a tad too large for him, but he's 18 and still growing, so it may lessen after he has grown a little (he's about 5' 10" now)

He has a straight bar on and I reckon that a riser bar may help him in the interim. He is on limited income being on a BTEC sports course.

Does anyone have a spare inexpensive riser bar with a degree of sweep on it?

Cheers

Trevor.
