Street Set Up

8 posts in this topic

Posted (edited)

Hi all, I'm just looking for a bit of advise before i think of splashing out on stuff but i've got a mk1 hex which is great but i always seem to get myself in these situations with front set ups (Bit new to the street scene). At the moment i'm running a 120mmx17 stem and highrise bars which as i'm 6ft 3 feels okay but when it comes to doing a bit of normal trials moves it feels as if i'm over extending whether thats set up or out of practice i'm not sure but i'm feeling it mostly on gaps and side hops. Not had the best of luck since starting it all due to cracking my ribs a few months back and only just got back on the bike but i was just wondering what people would recommend set up wise if anyone my height has had issues

hmm I was thinking that but I didn't know whether to get a stem same length but higher. I don't think there's much height difference in the trialtechs and arcade bars...

Not much difference but they put your hands in a much nicer position, and as said 90x35 or 80x40 stem.

Shorter or higher stem for sure.  As Karl says, the bars are quite a lot different in terms of feel and how they affect your riding because of the sweeps:

I've just changed my ratio aswell from 22-18 to 22-17 which it feels better. Always had a lot of power in my legs and never felt the old ratio was quite enough
