Compatible handlebars for the 9T (clip-ons, different bars etc)

As far as I understand, the NineT's fork is about the same as the S1000RR, just simplified (not adjustable). This means, the diameter to consider for clip ons should be 55mm (anyone to confirm?).

Regarding the bar, that's a dual diameter piece, 28.6mm in the middle, 22mm at the ends, if I understood correctly.


Clip-ons:
  • ?

Bars:
  • BUELL Clubman from the BUELL CR 1125 (photos below)
  • ?

I don't really understand what the Robby handlebars would look like on a bike, but here is a picture of the LSL Fat-bar. They look pretty cool, and I like the gold color in the picture too.



I take it that all you guys are planning on switching handle bars on your nineT.

Question for this group, are clip ons very usable for day-to-day without also providing rear sets? Seems it would change the ergonomics a good deal and not compensating for the different lean angle could be very uncomfortable. Should add also a section for rear sets?

What do you think of this ace bar, that can be adjusted in many different ways (click on the image to see a photo gallery):

Interesting idea for variability's sake, but kind of cluttered by the adjustment joints.

If I were to look for a different bar it would be to find one that fits me best, and then I would just ride with it. No need for variability once the fit is identified. So, for me, a fixed-shape bar would work just as well and offer a cleaner look.

But if you were interested in changing your geometry for different riding, then the adjustable bar might be a good idea. Not for me, though. I get used to a bike and expect it to behave and be set up in a certain way.
