I've always been a fan of straight bars or minor pullback no matter which style. I was just curious how it feels through your hand/wrists over time.

Bottom line..........still awesome.

They just take some getting used to the handling, but they're pretty comfy for cruizin, not the greatest for rippin around.

Try a set....you can probably use your old cables too.

i think that's the best description I have ever seen for pull backs.

Hell yes Bander!!

They're real comfy, 'specially on long hauls. After I switched to ZombiePerformance's riserless rabbits, my back felt a helluva lot better. Before that, I was running some narrow broomsticks with 3" risers.

Turning sharp takes a lil to get used to, ya turn a little ya turn a lot.

Thanks dudes. My main concern is that while I'm pulling the throttle, my hand and wrist will be crooked. I'm not trying to sound like a bitch, I appreciate the input.

Pullbacks kick ass, here is me drag racing ( and winning ) against a CVO screaming eagle this squawking pigeon that couch glide that at the race track down here... 6 bends rule for traffic weaving and there is nothing better on the long haul.

you creep your hand back to a more "neutral" position on long hauls

The rule of thumb I have always used is that it seems to work best if the bars dont creep in farther than the width of the riders shoulders. Seems to work well.

The rabbits on my ironhead are close enough to wear handcuffs with though.. still work fine. Takes a minute to get used to but works fine. That having been said.. they will be changed out for something a bit wider in the future....
