Can I roll a handlebar with 8* backsweep and 5* upsweep into a position of 9* backsweep bar and ~4* upsweep, or 10* backsweep and ~3* upsweep?
I can't do that much math, but you can rotate it just about however you want, ride it, and see if you like it. If you have the capability to measure 1 degree changes, more power to you!Can I roll a handlebar with 8* backsweep and 5* upsweep into a position of 9* backsweep bar and ~4* upsweep, or 10* backsweep and ~3* upsweep?
That's also what I was thinking, expressed by my preceding the estimated upsweep #s with a "~". The upsweep will decrease as the backsweep increases, but not at the same rate (nor a linear rate), though I'd guess it's close. I'm just trying to confirm the basic relationship between angles, get a rough estimate of how they affect one another as the bar is rolled, and make sure I'm not overlooking anything (like compromising the bar's resistance to breaking).With the compound angles, you won't be able to make the two values match another value with only a single pivot.
It's hypothetical but do think I can feel the difference. Like you, I micro-adjust a bar by feel, but have found I consistently roll a bar back until I dial out any sense of excessive upsweep, then stop.Is this a hypothetical question? Or are do you think you can actually feel the difference between handlebars with those angles?
