These MK Bars - What is Height?
« on: March 06, 2019, 08:53:52 PM »
I rode these bars before my bike got stollen 14 years ago and I'm just now putting a new bike together.


I LOVED these handlebars but I feel I need something taller.


Does anyone have an idea of the height of these MK bars are?  That will give me a gauge to what I need for my new handlebars. 


(And if anyone is selling non-chrome bars with little sweep, IM me)

I'm not sure about these ones, later models are here:

I think they were probably somewhere around 6.75"

specs given by the maker is great info but better is to measure YOUR bar height since that's kind of very easy ;)

Hey Revig, his bike got stolen... So he cannot measure it.By the way: How would you measure if the bar has up-sweep? At the end of the griptube?

Oh I assumed he found another set, the one he showed the picture of



I will measure exactly where I put the red arrow ;)

Moreover, below is a custom pic coming originally from the flybikes site showing the bar height:

Revig, what I meant is that you could measure at the inner or outer end of the griptube, and if there is a bigger upsweep, it makes a difference. I believe that typically the outer end it considered, but I am not sure so I wanted an opinion.
