    it really depends how tucked in you want to be when you are riding, remember if the bars are all the same height, the width will only bring you closer, by very little though. wider bars better grip imo. i would go with the riva (umi) 29" or 31" bars

    I would most DEFINITELY go with the ODI grips. They don't come off. Some how I lost a stock grip at nationals and very nearly went swimming. Not a good thing during a race. My self and others have NO complaints about ODI grips. Just don't bother putting the black plastic end pieces on. They won't stay but the grips will.

    I have a set of UMI bars, the widest I could get at the time. I thought that was 28". I haven't measured them.

    For the 15-f you will want to go with the 1200 STXR steering neck and RC/Alessi Renthal 85 bars. Best thing for any riding style IMO!

    Questions? Please ask em and Ill help you all I can!

    The 15-F Steering neck is Approx 2" taller and with it being shorter makes for a better ride and a more aggressive or better stance meaning better stability!
