    bar = wide dh riser bar, stem = 90mm ~ 5 degrees. that is a good street set up.

    It's nice to see Elan actually giving some good advice for a change.

    lol :rofl:

    you might have to tilt the bars forward, dh bars tend to have a backward sweep and not much upward rise at the ends. tilting it forward keeps the bar from being angled downward when you're up on the rear wheel. i wouldn't go for more than a 2" rise 1-1.5 is usually good, and keep in mind when its tilted forward it basically adds length to the stem.
