I have the Ilium Bar Backs but recently became aware of the Verholen Bar Backs that have additional adjustments (horizontal, vertical, and tilt) for lack of a better description. Has anyone installed the Verholen Bar Backs and, if so, what are your impressions?

TIA

I installed them and like them on my GT. I had wrist and shoulder discomfort on long rides before the change. The expense can be partially recovered if you sell the bike and remove the risers.

BeemerBob,
How do you like the Ilium risers? I'm considering them.

They are well made and reasonably priced. No need to lengthen cables. I have a BACKUP backrest with Cee Bailey seat and had hoped that the Ilium barbacks would let me sit a little further back in the saddle (I have a 32 inch reach). I was inquiring about the Verholen barbacks to see if maybe the additional adjustability would improve my seating position.
