Default Re: tallest apes possible on BGF setup?

Longer cables are available most anywhere that sells bikes.

In addition, if you've never ridden a bike with high ape hangers, be prepared to adjust your normal riding style. The tall bars will have an effect on steering and control that you'll need to get used to. Be careful.
too tall of an ape an it can get skecthy to keep balance an even harder to hold on when your arms go numb . just be careful .
