I just swapped my stock bars for the Pro-Taper Pastanas.. what a difference!!
I’m only 5’11” but I still had to hunch forward when standing to fully grip the bars.. these totally relieved that problem AND took out that evil sweep in the stock bars that cause my hands to go numb in 15mins.
I think the Pastranas are great when seated as well as standing. I replaced the stock bars because the Sweep so to great and caused unbelievable numbness in my hands. The Sweep of the pastranas are great, I can now ride hours (sitting) without suffering any numbness/tingling in my hands.
They look very different in the pics, but when you’re sitting on the bike they feel great!
