Took a few pictures of the bars today and did some measuring. Just using a hand measuring tape it appears that the bar drops about one inch on each end because of the bends. Measuring from the grip to the bottom, above the bottom bend, the bars appear to be about 12 inches when you take out those curves, even though they are referred to as 16 inch. I'm pleased about this as many that seem to have the 'other' manufacturers bars get the 10 inch and then say they wish they had gone with 12's. Being short at 5'7 and having my seat lowered about an inch I think these will (hopefully) be perfect for me. For others that are taller I THINK they offer a 16 inch that would probably work well also.
Spent this morning cleaning the bike up 'cos the weather is still crappy here and snapped a few more pictures that maybe show the height a little better. I have them leaned back to where they are not even with the forks, just slightly back from that.
