I purchased a bike with Rox Risers and is it possible that the risers make the bike less comfortable? I am a tall rider 6'5" tall. Is it just my imagination?

I'm 6'2- If I try to stand on the pegs I have to bend down a long way so I am thinking about risers... but then that would certainly change the dynamic in my normal (99% of the time) sitting position.

Why yes it can. Does for me. But I'm not a tall guy. Actually, according to my co-workers, I'm short, fat, ugly and broke.

Dunno about the short, fat and ugly, but the broke part I can understand.

It's the well-known farkle effect on the bank account.

:cool:

It's all about personal comfort. At 6'7" the stock bars were to low, angled my hands out instead of straight off the forearm. The Univ. Solex bars worked perfect. Taller the stock, much less sweep, a little wider.

I was thinking about the bars as well, they tend to make the outside of my hands hurt as if they are at an awkward angle.

Thanks for the idea.

Yep. It was a real issue for me. These bars are not readily available but I know how to get them if interested. PM me your e-mail address and I can send several photos of my bike with them installed.
