Bar Risers
on: October 14, 2018, 11:18:59 AM
Has anyone fitted bar risers to their Crossrunner? I have a 2015 Crossrunner and I need to raise the bars between half an inch to an inch to get to just the right riding position but haven't found anyone that makes a set for the bike. Anyone know of who makes them for the Crossrunner?

Can't you just buy a different handlebar? I thought risers were only applicable to bikes with the bars attached to the fork tops.  :027:

I lowered my handlebar by nearly an inch just by rotating it in the clamps.. you might find there's some room for raising it by rotating it the other way.

I'm using these from SW-Motech

Cables all fit. You just need to loosen up the brake hose and pull the extra length up towards the bars.
