Just curious about the handle bar heighth on the 575. How many spacers are you guys going with. How will more spacers affect steering/geometry? Any help would be appreciated! Thanx in advance

I am using 3 spacers. I tried 6 which was crazy high but didn't feel "bad". I don't think geometry is changed with the spacers at all. Only your sitting position and how much weight is centered where is affected.

First, understand that bar height is a personal preference.

Me, I've run my 1.5" riser bar with 4 spacers underneath using a 2004 130mm Minute1 fork and it was perfect. When I switched to a 2005 AM SL (also set at 130mm) I removed all but one of the spacers to compensate for the taller fork after I noticed my front wheel flopping on the steep climbs. Again, also perfect.
