60 cm bar on the inside settings which is roughly 54 cm. Line lenght should be 21+3M. So add 3 meter extensions if you have the 20m or 21m lines. 27 or 26 meter lines(as the newer Inifity 3.0 bars are delivered) is way to long and 20-21m is a bit too short for the 15M so the sweetspot is right between them.

You welcome. The newer Infinity 3.0 60cm bars comes with 17+3+6m lines, so if you happen to have one of those then you just need to take of the 3 meter :)
