12” Apes with some pullback
This is my first post...only had my 2019 RGS for about a month and a half. When I bought the bike I included a set of 12” Factory 47 Signature bars as part of the deal, and I think I may have made a very expensive mistake. They’re great looking, high quality bars, don’t get me wrong, but I made my decision based on style and all the great reviews on them, and the ergonomics don’t quite work for me. I’m 5’9 with a 30” inseam and the height is perfect, but they’re too wide and don’t have enough pullback so it’s tweaking the middle of my back and making me have to lean or scoot forward in my seat. It’s killing the comfort of the bike for me. I may try to fix it with a different seat, but that doesn’t address the width. I was looking at KST bars because they seem to be a couple inches narrower, but about the same pullback. Wondering if anyone has other suggestions or advice for my current setup. Thanks!
