Currently I have the Boardman Pro 29er 2016 and I want to change the bars for a higher rise as I feel it would be more comfortable for my style of riding. I can't find the size of the bar without visiting the shop to ask, I was wondering if anybody could help me with this?
Also I'm thinking of buying renthal bars but I'm looking to keep the weight kind of similar.

    There's lots of size measurements on a handlebar - width, rise, sweep, clamp diameter so not sure what "size" you're after but this might help if you click on the specifications tab...
  • It's the size of the bars that the clamps lock onto with the Allen key bolts I was concerned about :)
    I have had many BMX's in the past and the bar size is usually measured in fractions.

    31.8 mm is the diameter of the part that gets clamped (centre part of bar).
