Easton Monekylite XC '09, 660mm, 31.8mm, low rise. I can't find it anywhere, can someone give me a link where I can buy it please? Thanks.

Will cutting off a 1/2" from each side really have a significant effect on the rise of the bar?
Only if you're a top-level rider like me and every mm counts :D
Actually I think the effect is almost negligible.
How about the advantages/disadvantages of using a 685mm bar vs. 660mm?

Even at 660, I think that is a very wide bar. I've been running 560 bars for years, and any time I get on my wife's bike with the 610 Easton bar, I think the bloody thing is massively wide.

Bonus of trimming the 685 down to 660 is that it'll be lighter!
