need help picking bars... im not good with the whole specs thing like up sweep and back sweep and rise and all that fun stuff
i just want bars that are good on my wrists and all around riding like street/drops/gaps, park, and a bit of dirt... idk if it helps but im like 5'10"
i had fit flow streets
and im looking into two sets right now titty bars by liquor bikes and a pair of morphine bars... idk if those would be good for me... any recommendations if theyre not?

You have to find what specs you want before you can choose bars with any real thought behind it.
I started on slam bars, and whenever I ride anything with different specs it just feels uncomfortable
Now I have kink wolf bars, which are identical except .5 inches taller
But thinking about just going back to my og slams since they feel a little too big right now

thats why im asking on here... someone stole my bike last week and the bars were like 5 years old so i cant just gosee what the rise was and i have no clue what it was... i liked those but i can get used to new ones so i wanted ones that were good on the wrists and not too big

Get 8 or 7.75 inch rise, 8 felt big at first but alot better than my 7.2 fly bars, look for 25-27 width.

I was being sarcastic. People kept posting bigger bars when he clearly wants nothing to do with them. I am not a fan of perfect 10s.

Fit flow street bars appear to be fit high bars also known as northwest bars
8x28 1.5 upsweep And 4(?) backsweep
You could always get the same bars again, S&M grand slams would be pretty similar just taller
Kink makes their bars in similar specs as does mutiny
I hear good things About liquor bikes, but think morphine is mainly race
Stuff

Animal Hyrone?

Shadow Vultus?

Animal Bobs?

Considering your bars were about 5 years old, they were almost definitely under 8". These three bars are about 7.5" to 8" tall with at least 3 degrees upsweep (for your wrists). You should be able to find something you like. If not, S&M makes some pretty small bars still. Check them out.
