Is there any way to bring the handlebars on an 1800 down and back to a short rider? I'm 5'7" and have a 32-33" reach. This puts me in a stretched out position as I ride. I have installed the risers with not much help. Does anyone know of how to modify, purchase longer bars, whatever to help shorter riders?

Here's what I went with:

http://www.mblinnovations.com/handlebar_adapter_kit.html

I'm between 5'8" and 5'9" and found the standard kit to be a terrific fit. I did not install them myself--they were put in by the Traxxion installer when he did my suspension--but it isn't too big a deal from what I understand. I noticed a big difference the second I got on the bike. My arms are more relaxed and I sit more upright instead of leaning forward. While this is more comfortable overall it did give me new issues with the comfort of the stock seat. ;)

I got mine from Wingstuff by the way.
Thanks. will get right on this.
