MX Bars on Mountain Bike

Recommended Posts

I need to replace the grips on my mountain bike and thought that instead I will just replace the whole bar with a spare 7/8" bar I have lying around. They will be wider but I think will fit otherwise. Has anyone tried this? Wonder if it will help for training?

What kind of MTB bars do you currently have? Mx bars in the MTB world are called riser style bars. I've never done this change before, but I would suspect that you will pick up a little weight on your MTB. The difference between flat and riser MTB bars is comfort (subject to persoanl preference) and quickness in steering.
