    Now then. I wonder if these make 20" bikes suddenly come in to sharp focus for us larger gents?
    I had a set of CW bars on my 20" when I was younger and they were HUGE. Or at least they felt that way.
    So imagine a Fit Lurch with these bars and your now in 22" inch Faction territory for cockpit feel. Though wheelwise, very different of course.
    Hmmm very interesting.

    i made the one with the Dirt Bike not with the chick. heh heh. i didn't think of it as an "ad" though. just an illustration of the fact that it was typical in the early years of S&M to be running bars that were effectively 10" since they were 8"/8.25" + stacked headset + stem raised a little + top loader. so your grips were almost in the same place. i know cuz that's how i rode my Holmes and later my Homeless Mack, Pornstar, Taj, etc. !

    I wonder how tall my bars/grips where when I had an ACS Rotor and CW bars on it..?

    whatever it was, my seat was just as high.

    Nice bump, the S&M sweet 16's look good (vomit, lol). Funny how a lot of bars now are approaching 9" plus rise. 10's don't sound as crazy now.
