    I haven't had my V7 III for long, but I'm having a bit of an issue with the wrist angle of the OEM bars. My natural stance seems to want more of a flat angle than the oem bars give, resulting in too much pressure against the outside edge of my palm.

    Should I be searching for a flatter angle handlebar? Or do I just need to get into the habit of forcing my arms closer in to the bike, so that they match the angle of the bar?

    Have you tried rotating the bars a little up or down to see if that helps? I have mine rotated downwards from stock a bit (about 4 MM) and it makes a big difference for me.

    Hmmm...not sure which one would be the best choice. Looks like maybe the High Streetbar has the flattest wrist angle. Anyone know the equivalent measurements for the stock bar, so I can compare?

    i'm curious about this too. i see a number of handlebars available for the V7 III but i'm unsure if it's too much trouble than it's worth.

    I've been looking around, and I think the best answer for me might be a Rox Riser, and then find a good broomstick-style bar. The LSL bars look awesome, but shipping to Hawaii is a killer.

    I was wondering a similar thing I am a taller guy with longer arm, so I thought maybe having them a bit forward would help. Could I get away with it by just rotating the bars forward a bit?
    I have a '18 V7III Rough
