Very right, actually.

The reason that putting a bigger bar at the front induces understeer is that it reduces front-end grip. A bigger bar at the rear induces oversteer because it reduces rear-end grip.

Despite the evidence, you want us to believe that bigger bars at both ends doesn't reduce overall grip?

What am I missing?
