Really? A 1/2" rise made it like night and day?
PS; are your backs that bad that a 1/2 -1" rise makes that much difference in your trail (not trial) riding?
I think that my Alpinestars boots are 1/2" higher in the soles than my Gaernes. I should have raised the bars to get my world right again!
Are we talking observed
trials at a decent class level or mostly guys riding around on trials bikes?
I've had this discussion with dirt bikers with about the same results.
There have been some very good riders in this thread giving free and good advice. You guys jack up your bikes any way you want! At least we are all riding!
