For my 140 ish pounds, 33 mm grips, 2.5-2.4 tires at low psi, soft forks are infinitely more important than bar “compliance”. Back in the day we had slim grips because Tomac said, 2.1 was a fat tire with tubes pumped too hard, rim brakes caused a death grip because they stunk. That my friends, in winter on the north shore is the definition of hand cramps and arm pump. Maybe if I was a lot heavier on a wider bar (740 for me) I’d notice it. Stiffness or compliance is the sum of all the components. I think to judge bar compliance one really needs machines to test and compare that.
