Sinister drag bars vs. Yaffe 10" inch monkey bars

I really like both of these, anyone have experience with both? Which is more comfortable for a taller rider (6'2")?

Thanks for the reply, did you try the 10" at all or go straight for the 12s?

Well, they were on the bike when I bought it. I admit I was unsure if I would like 'em,but after the first ride, I was hooked.

I'm also 6'2" and have the 10" monkey bars. I wish I would have went with the 12s or even higher..... I'm considering selling the 10s to up grade but not sure I want to lose the money and time.

This is the boat that I'm in. I'm 6ft/34" inseam and like the look of my 10's, but sometimes wish I would have listened to owners of 10" bars when they say they wish they went with 12's. Its the money investment that prevents me from doing the swap. I really think its the swoop-down design of the bars that lead most Monkey Bar buyers to buy 1 size smaller than the should have. Their 10's look like 12's, their 12's look like 14's, etc.

Dirtyb, were 10's not comfortable? Or do you just like the looks of the 12's better?

831roadster, you like the Yaffe's better because they were more comfortable or look better or both? 10's or 12's?

Thanks for the feedback!
