perfection:........conventional length titanium rack smallest diameter safely possible where the last possible bar's opposite end is positioned as close as possible to the rack's ear.........six lower titanium bars that are roughly triangularly shaped with thicker lower ends with a bit more flare...the upper four should be shaped like a convention hollow bar but smaller diameter......spacers may not be necessary....the triangular bars may provide more friction and certainly less effective heat dissipation.......

one inch or maybe even more shorter than conventional titanium rack with five titanium bars larger than normal.....if you ask me.......its an idiots middle ground from super, long, conventional, short, and shorter racks....where the idiots fear is a loss of control....
