With my bad back and worse neck, I haven't been mtb much the last three years. I tried last year to get a taller stem put on my bike but the bike shop mechanic/owner couldn't break the nut loose from the bottom. I was thinking of buying highrise handlebars instead to raise my "view" up some so I don't have to look up so much when riding, so maybe I can get out again. Anyone have any input? A recumbent is out as I like to use FS roads/trails, with some pavement riding to get there at times.
