So I have S&M Slam XLTs on my Model C right now and they're a bit low for me.
I'm 6'3" and have a set of Perfect 10s on my old GT Vertigo that I might try, just haven't had time to strip the crappy old levers off and the new grips.
Wanted to see what people were running. Was thinking of either my Perfect 10s on some Elevenz.

Try the 10s. 11s are a bit much for me.

are they like gorilla hangers for you?

I'm so glad brake levers are clamp on now instead of slide on... It'll make testing these bars a lot easier.

I couldn't even bring myself to try 10s. I got 9.75s . 11 just seems crazy big to me. I run 9.25s on my WTP Atlas 24 and 9.75 on my Crysis.

I have some 10" Shadow Vultus bars on my Model C. They look and feel great on my bike.

I’m 5’7” and ride 8.75” bars on mine and love them. I say go for it at your height

oh jeez, I forgot to update. I tossed my Perfect 10s on and now the bike totally just feels light a 'right size for me' BMX bike. It just looks like a 20% bigger bike.
I went for a quick bomb around the aquarium area of Boston the other day for the first time I've ridden in town in over 20 years. Felt great. A bit wide, but so is the rider

I have some photos here
