Interesting. I noticed this quite a bit on Saturday, and felt the same need to have my handlebars raised up for better positioning and control while standing (so I sat most of the time....). But I'm sure there's a trade off....I'll be interested to hear your results if you try to raise the bar.

Generally speaking, I've always ridden without a stabilizer, figuring it's best to hone your skills with minimal technology first (like wheeling with double lockers vs. open diffs). But I'm at a point where I'm ready for one too.

Is there a cost difference between the under vs over, and what about performance differences?

Good choice for a new thread.
