Re: Pro size bars on a cruiser?

I had some CW Pro Moustache bars on my CW 24 and with a standard stem they looked kind of goofy. With a DK inverted stem, they look and feel great.http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/207817/f2e1d5f6-e608-4bd3-8d31-9ba801a1d7e85c56ffb32d.jpeg

Troy, I'll be honest with you -- I hate how pro bars look on cruisers.   In my opinion, it throws the proportions off, but I would agree that the comfort is hard to beat.  For me, cruisers are best set up with cruiser bars -- even for chill cruising. I've adapted to the relative discomfort of the combination by making sure I stretch and re-posture when needed.  It works for me, but cannot guarantee that it will work for others.

Perron, I don’t often say it, but i will on this post, you’re COMPLETELY WRONG.

Heh heh.

got this recently, came with these bars. I'm 5'7"  so this setup is a bit too much, comfy ride, handles like a station wagon.


If all of mankind, minus one, were of an opinion, and only one person were of the contrary opinion, mankind would be no more justified in silencing that one person, than he, if he had the power, would be justified in silencing mankind.

Not for me as I think it looks terrible. Use cruiser bars. Ride height for me would be far too high with pro bars.

Whatever floats your boat. If you want to put pro bars on a cruiser then do it. No rules.

Don't hold back, Colin!  Tell 'em they're doin' it wrong! lol

Some updated photos, love the pro bars I had 3” bar risers on my Ducati Monster because they’re not made for men above 5’10” my back and wrists hurt from riding after a half hour I’m 6’2” and you must remember bikes and motorcycles are not made to fit everyone. I do triathlon which is a new degree of uncomfortable so it’s not about being old, or out of shape which doesn’t help. I love all the bikes I’ve seen posted they’re beautifulhttp://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/223077/e8950aa2-eef0-4b34-bb8f-8f9e27a1a9135d5ff165ed.jpeg

Re: Pro size bars on a cruiser?

My opinion is 24” cruisers are for racing so it gets cruiser bars but  26”(unless it’s a dirt jumper) or bigger is for cushy cruisin so pro bars get my vote there.http://uploads.bmxmuseum.com/user-images/200037/e7c8cd2f-8a8d-439c-b735-377bfb88532e5d60448077.jpeg
