It sounds like most folks use them to bring the bars up.
The Rox risers are 2" of difference, so if you have them diagonal they will be 2" also. Or diagonal at 45 degrees would be 1.4" up and 1.4" back.

Like I said before the difference is drastic even though it is only 2". It is nice to have the adjustability of the ROX risers to dial in your most comfortable position.

Sadly I will probably be posting my ROX risers in the Flea Market soon. The upright position was great, but it was putting too much weight on my tailbone and making it sore. Something to think about.
