I think this post has lost something in translation. aww

Tom is wanting to put bar risers on his bike, but he doesn't want to replace any of the cables.

He is asking what the height is for bar risers without affecting the cables.

Translating from Biały Bór to English is probably not as easy as French to English. no

 

Tom, I would advise an increase of height of about two inches (50mm) will be OK.

Brian had a posting HERE that explains it.

Hi Tom

We seem to have more luck with the translate in our emails.

In my opinion you can just about get away with the minimum setting on the riser kits (20mm) if you re -route the cables, any more than this and you will need the longer cables.

I don't think you'll get 50mm out of the standard cables.

With some rerouting you might manage 20-30mm but I wouldn't wanna risk the cables pulling when turning.

I tried to fit some Dakar bars (can't remember how much higher these are?) And I couldn't get standard cables to work.

I think in that post Brian is suggesting with Venhill long cables you can use Dakar AND bar risers together.

Steve,
you are right with our translation.
So I understand, I can lift 20 mm without changing the cables.
Thank you all for your help.
Martyn, you're right.

Also subject to how wide the bars are, I run slightly wider bars & as such cant use risers, same as different height bars, you must only base the ideas on the standard bars.
