I've been toying to bar heights, bar widths and bar ends for a few months trying to get in the groove of what I love/want.

I have found it.

Simulataneously, I had to ship back my WB 1.0 for it's scheduled maintence and swapped on the Reba I'd been saving for a future SS build.

I really really really LOVE the Reba. So buttery and tender, but stiff when the pop is locked. The rake is increased: this is beautiful.

So, this set-up is finally the one I'm staying with.
It's set up as an long-distance/training bike.

I prefer these chopped down Titec bar ends over the cane creeks in this application. I sawed off 1" of each end, leaving the perfect length behind.

4" Reba
Salsa ProMotos @ 5 degrees

DT TK/240s

Lookin' great in this formation. Glad to hear such accolades for the Reba. I guess I know what to do if I ever feel the need for some front squish on my Waltworks. ;)

Bike looks ready to go all day (and all night). I would love to have one for endurance/12/24 hour racing. Maybe in the future.

:D GG

Nice setup Padre. I was looking real hard at the Leviathan, but ended up going with a Curtlo, I wanted just a bit more travel. The Leviathan is a very sweet bike. The Behemoth might be my second bike.
