I'm in the process of changing my Klein Attitude hard tail to a SS.
Wondering if I should:
use a straight bar or a riser. (If riser what degree?).
Should I get bar ends ?
How about a suspension seat post too ? I have a thudbuster 2
Thanks

There are no rules; set your bike up the way it feels comfortable, period. Lots of folks like the postioning that riser bars give you, myself included. If you run a riser, generally you don't use bar-ends, but it's not like there's a law against it or anything. The stiffness of the aluminum Klein might make you appreciate that Thudbuster, but you probably know that already...

Depends on stem, your body type, etc. It matters most to me when it's necessary to stand, crank up steep hills, and use my arms.

Just got back

Did 4 hours of ss riding today and I'm more light headed than usual. If you have your bike set up to be an efficient seated climber you can throw that out. You will be climbing standing much more. Get er Dunn.
