Need advice about trimming down my protapers.

Please see post #3

Edited by Fitch

went with protaper se cr high bend 7/8"

Need some advice.

Okay, so I got my protaper CR High bend bars in 7/8" and I see that there are markes on the ends of the bars for cutting them down numbered 1-4.

Any advice about what to cut them down to? Has anyone installed these bars on their bike with cycra handgaurds?

Thanks in advance for any help.

it's just personal fit, or needs of the environment you ride in.

I have a set of 1 1/8 pro tapers I cut half again what #4 mark is... due to the obstacle I had to ride though at a race in Oregon. (barn house, doorways were TIGHT)

Other then fit to a set of conditions, it's where your arms feel more naturally, and how much leverage you want.. More=wider, Less = narrower
