Chromag BZA.. 800mm wide, 15mm rise. I'm 6'5", pretty close to 24" wide shoulders. Anything less than 800mm now feels wrong.

Being cheap is OK. Being a clueless sanctimonious condescending douchebag is just Vlad's MO.

RaceFace SixC 35mm bars at the full 800mm length
RaceFace Atlas 35mm/35mm stem

I am going to cut the bars down soon, I gave them 6 months but I still do not feel comfortable when things get tight and twisty. Going to cut down to 760 or 780. I never felt like this with my old Spank 777 bars…it's funny that such a small length much such a large difference to my brain.

Chromag Cutlass 730mm [HTML_REMOVED] Chromag Ranger 50mm….I'm not on the super wide bar bandwagon, my pinky fingers have appreciated slimming down again after a few years of uncut fubars, especially on tight old school trails, which I love.

760 mm wide joystick 31.8 analog carbon bar with 5° and 9° sweep. I find that the wide bars are great for trails that I'm going flat out fast and bermin' or carving. but i find that on steep, gnar rocks and root such as lower ladies or skull, etc. I feel too sprawled out making turns on steep bumpy rock bits.

I'm 5'8" riding a small Banshee Spitfire. I've run wider bars stacked at different heights on the stem and this seems ideal for me in terms of control and long-term riding fatigue. on 780's I found I got tired arms on long AM rides. i think it's mostly because of how i'm seated in the cockpit of my bike at 760 mm my forearms are parallel, anything more with my current setup my forearms flare out. Great for steering at high speeds, but I find I get less "power" or "leverage" at slow speeds with technical riding.
