Our Step-through models come with pull back handlebars and an adjustable stem on most models. This will provide an upright ride/posture by default. 


On the XR, or standard frame bikes, if you want to achieve a more upright posture for a relaxed ride, this can be done with a couple easy and inexpensive upgrades!


1) Stem

- Higher Angle Stem:  All of our forks are the standard 28.6mm (1-1/8") in diameter. Make sure you match the diameter of your handlebars (25.4mm, or 31.8mm)




-Stem Extender:  All of our forks are the standard 28.6mm (1-1/8") in diameter. 




2) Handlebars 

Cafe or Pullback handlebars are a great solution for a more upright posture. These can be found in bike shops or online pretty quickly. Make sure you buy the correct size bar clamp diameter. That is the only size that should matter.


Roadsters, 500 Series - 25.4mm

Core5, 700, LMTD - 31.8mm




NOTE: If you change the handlebars to cruiser bars, in combination with extending the stem, you may not have enough cable slack for proper installation. In most cases this isn't an issue, but it is best to check your bike first to ensure your cables and wires will reach. It is usually no problem, but you may have to adjust derailleur cable, brake cable, or wires.
