I'll dig up the picture I had comparing the Coerce to the Renthals and post it tomorrow. I'll take another of the Renthal w/ Suburban Machinery next to it as in the previous link to their site as well.

I appreciate the info but do you have any pics?

As stupid as it sounds, i'm 20 years old and not too concerned with comfort as I am with looks. I love the fact that the bike is comfortable, but even with some lower bars i'm sure the bike will be more comfortable than any race-replica. I am just going for a very clean, neo-cafe racer type of look.

The Renthals on the bike now are the CR125 model. The gold are the Coerce and the silver are Suburban Machinery. The Renthals are really comfortable, especially on multi-day trips, but if you're shorter it might be a longer reach to the bars than you're used to. Coerce looked good, but after the Renthals, too narrow. Have never ridden the Suburbans ... See the For Sale section as to why.
