I'm going to have to agree with Sharkbite, KST makes a quality bar, polished stainless and attention to detail is top notch. They were at BBBQ and had a set (one off) of the style of bars I had been looking for. Unfortunately these were a custom order that they brought to the show and not for sale but they were happy to come out to my RGC to let me see what I thought of the rise. Perfect. I ordered the bars a while back and plan the install this weekend. Great guys to work with and great customer service. I'll take pics of the install and post when finished.

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.

Hope this helps....the one from the right side is more of a 'natural' angle....the left side I had to kinda duck down to take
