bar rise can make a huge difference in your riding. dans comp has charts on bar height for different height riders. How tall your bars are and how wide. 24-25 width and 7.5 to 8 is a pro height bar. this is sort of standard, which leaves out sweep and angle of taper. check your budies bars and don't buy any extremes. S&m bars are good its really up to you
