Carlini Flying Apes?

Anyone running these on a ‘15+?

I swapped to the Road6 11” last year and while they helped the height issue (mostly) with the stock bars, they ended up being further away from me that I prefer. I rolled them back in line with the forks and got them a little closer, but the wrist angle went weird. The bar ends are tipped down and it’s causing issues with my hand and elbow. I’ve put 10k miles on them this year and just can’t see spending another year on them.

Looking at the 1.25 non stepped flying apes in 12 or 14, because they appear similar to the khromewerks sweepers in that you get more pull back without a bunch of wrist angle added. Anyone try these?

I am interested in this as well, as I was looking at road 6 myself but haven't pulled the trigger due to the same issue your talking about.

When all else fails, hell there is always beer!

Yep, problem with a lot of bars is they change the angle and that has caused me problems and earlier bikes. Not like there is a "handle bar" store where you can try them on before purchase.
