BR Sweeping Beaters or Monkey Bars - Cant decide...

I've got approval from the boss to get new bars. I like the looks of the monkey bars, but don't like the fact that a lot of people have them, and they are a B!+CH to wire. I also like the BR Sweeping beaters in 1 1/2". I think the larger size will stand out a bit (and easier to wire). I'm only looking to go as high as I can without buying new cables, 12" will work, not sure on the 14" for both bars.

Who knows if I can go with the 14's in either bar without extending brake and clutch cables? and Which bar would you prefer?

I'm 6'2, slouch when I ride. Looking for some attitude with 12 hour comfort. I have a 14 day ride coming up with some 12-14 hour days. I need to decide quickly to get them in time for the ride...

I have BR Sweeping Beaters. I'd say BR for the fact that you can get the Bars made to the exact specs you want.

I'm going to call Bill tomorrow. I'm really hoping his turn time is less than the 8 weeks mentioned... I'm really hoping to have them installed and a couple rides in before my trip. The first day will be the longest, about 14 hours.

I would seriously consider Buky Bar's "Mad Doggers" or ther "Malo Bars. They come in 1.5" diameter, are made in the USA, and can be sent to you quickly. Hit me up if you'd like more info, or you can check out a blog post I have on the bars. Nicest bars out IMHO.

I was just reading that thread! Do you think stock cables could work with the 14" bars? I have ABS and hoping to get by without running new cables.
