PostSubject: Handlebar option?   Sat Jun 21, 2014 11:36 am

I want to move my hand position back 1" and perhaps 1/2" higher. There seems to be no risers that are available to fit the hole spacing of the '12 GRiSO. I have looked and talked to a couple providers.
So, perhaps a handlebar swap is in order. Anyone done this. I don't want to have to re-cable, so just a small difference from stock would be the ticket.

you don't have to change bars. Some people have machined a spacer that mounts under you current mount to give about 1" rise, and others have added things like the Roxs Risers [You must be registered and logged in to see this link.] this isn't the model I don't think Rboe on here has them on his GRiSO.

Uzidzit was working on some nice machined spacers. I don't how far he has gone with that though.

I emailed him about it. Thanks. I need to look how the risers are bolted on and how much lift I can get there.

A local GRiSO owner machined these perfect spacers for his GRiSO
So you can see you can get a lot of lift without changing cables and lines.

I sent him an email and will let you know, I've seen another GRiSO with some just like it so I guess it's something that can be machined up easily

Haven't heard back from Jon Armitage, would anyone please nudge him for my attention.  Embarassed Embarassed Those raisers in combination with the ROX should help my neck tremendously.

Jon had mentioned he would be gone for a couple weeks and would deal with the risers at that time. They were being anodised and would be ready later.

While I don't need a set *Yet* I've got to the point in my life where my body is constantly surprising me! and not in a good way. I'll put my mitts up for a set of half-inchers please.
