I just got an 08 Fit Team Park, really stoked on it. But the upsweep on the handlebars are 1 degree and the bars I was riding previous were 4 degree (around what i prefer). Unfortunately they were on my friends bike which I was borrowing for a few months and had to give back. I was wondering if there was any way of bending the bars up a bit without majorly sacraficing the strength?

If you have a blowtorch of some sort you could heat them up and easily bend them... altough the paint would obviously be trashed after all that abuse lol... or you could just buy new bars lol

Dont think it will work out because you cant really possibly bend both sides equal, dont waste your time and get new ones.

It'd be very unlikely to bend them correctly so I am gonna say it's not a good idea. Just save up for new bars that you like and have the geometry that you prefer or get used to the ones you got.
