i currently have 8.6 inch rise Stolen TallBoys but I don't like the geometry on them and they make the bike feel really sluggish. I was looking at new bars and am stuck between the Fit Highs (8 x 28), United The Voyage (8.25 x 29) and Federal Lacey V2 (8.3 x 28). I really want the fit ones but I think going from 8.6 to 8 would be a big difference, what should I do?

Ride someone else's bike with an 8 inch and see how you like it. How tall are you?

I'm 5'8 and riding 8 in but planing on getting an 8.25. It shouldn't be too hard to adjust to an 8 inch or 8.25 though.

Oh so it should be good? Cause I hate the new like fuckin' 12 inch rise bars trend and i prefer lower ones but I wasn't sure.

Yeah 8-8.25 should be fine.

I'm a trendy 5"9 guy that went from 8.25 lumberjack bars to S&m perfectly 10 bars to 9 Odyssey sand bars to fit Mac 8.75 bars and I'm going back to 9" with Standard 4 piece strip bars when ever they get here

I want everyone to know that Jesus Christ died on the cross for all of your sins, he went to hell for three days and defeated death and rose from the grave on the 3rd day.

get a top load stem with the 8 rise bars and you will be perfect
