Its currently running a massive azonic riser, it so big it feels like an old set of 80's mtb bars or even an old renthal crosser bar...

Nearly there... 8)

Nice - and my size!

Do those forks ride ok on it? Thought the reissue had geometry for modern forks. I know my new(ish) forks are a good 3-4 cm taller than my rc36's
