    Hagen Low Rise vs GSG Low Rise

    I've been looking for handlebars that are lower and flatter (less rise, less pullback). The stockers are killing my wrists.

    In a random experiment, I tried a straight stainless steel tube (broomstick bars), and it was even more uncomfortable. I scanned through a few threads and sounds like a couple of you guys tried the Hagen Low Rise H7 and the GSG Low Rise, so I just wanted to hear what you thought?

    Re: Hagen Low Rise vs GSG Low Rise

    I could get a decent deal on Renthals through a local shop I used to work in. How would they compare to the Hagen Low Rise or the GSG Low Rise?

    Is "DucNutz" still around Would love to hear what he has to say about his experience with the GSG.

    @Trippin Green - I checked out the dimensions for the McGrath bend, and it looks GSG is lower.

    @trippin - Thanks for your help! Looks like I'll have to look at the McGrath anyway, there's a 4 - 6 week leadtime for the GSG's...

    Re: Hagen Low Rise vs GSG Low Rise

    you can get the exact same bend from ebay a brand called Universal, much cheaper and come with cross brace and pads. i got em on the CBR and they been down due to dip shit and held up fantastic. actually every time ive had a bike touch down the bars never bend.... shit when caitlin wrecked her ninja the stock Hypertard bars didnt bend, when i looped the triple the stock triumph bars didnt bend. handle bars are pretty tough shit.

    good luck, bars are fun to play with and can totally transform the way a bike rides. ive had low wide, standard (speedy), clip-ons, dirt bike bars. in the end on speedy i felt the stock fat bars were the best. good comfort, not as wide and had a good sweep, and sportier in the twisties than the mcgrath dirt bike bars while not being as crazy as clipons. have fun!!
