Hi RTS guy
I like bar ends, i have some on my Intense Tracer and i find them really usefull,
I like riser bars, i have some on my KHS FXT LT, this bike has a more of a relaxed position, supple suspension with a steel spring and like the handling of it with risers.
BUT IT'S NOT OK TO PUT THEM TOGEHTHER... NEVER!
(unless your name is Herbold, and even then, it's still not a good idea).
This combination is very efficient to ruin a bike, ANY bike. Even yours, too bad it was a good start but risers with bar ends, come on...
Exept for that huge mistake i would like it, but then it's yours so... :wink: who cares?


Word to that.

Needs an oldskool Syncros stem and post IMO! Maybe a Mag21 as well. Stunning bike though. Why all the Thomson stickers?

Why dont you just raise your stem height/length so it equals that of the riser bar?

Sorry i did'nt see the other posts. You know what's best for you.
I like your fork though, never managed to get one (yet).
It's not fair of me to criticize your vintage bike considering i don't ride mines (ooops do i dare to ay that here?), so it's nos difficult to set them up "correctly".
Enjoy your RTS, it's all that matters :)
