i'm running a set of who-cares-what-kind? of bars that are who-knows-how-many-mm? wide on a why-would-you-care-stem? that is what-does-it-matter-how-many-mm? long. are you going to take the average of every measurement in this thread to crowdsource your new cockpit? none of these numbers mean shit if you don't know the rider, their height and weight, the size of their frame, where what and how they ride, etc. that is to say, none of these numbers mean shit

This is a place for people to say look at me and my stem and my bars. Then for a bitter guy like you to sewer it all.

wow, is this really what the gear subforum has come to: show and tell time for repressed kindergardners looking for affirmation on their consumer choices and calling people out for wearing glasses?

Dude! You started spouting off being douchey and comparing discussing bar width to dick size.

Marginalize other peoples comments with stupid images of Charlie's chocolate factory and you'll get it right back at you.

LOL you're a joke. The boards used to be an informative place before you started swinging your dick around. Keep droning on about TT length and BB height bro……….

interesting that folks are so happy to pile on… but no ones willing to take a stab at explaining how knowing the stem length and bar height of a bunch of random punters is informative

Personal attacks aren't appreciated on these boards.

It would be great if a few of you were to delete your posts and clean up this thread.
