I am around 5'3 and have a top load stem with no additional headset spacers, I have 9.25 bars at the moment but I am looking for some different 4 piece bars, just not sure the heaight as I know the current ones are too big.

Probably around 8.5" to 8.75" would be a comfy downscale, possibly smaller. If you ride with other riders with smaller bars ask to ride their bikes around.

Do you know anyone else that rides? Try different bars that others are riding or go to a lbs and sit on a few bikes and see how the bars feel. At least to get a height down ..then you gotta decide what 4 peice you wanna buy because they will most likely all be 2 piece

I am at 8.75' at around 5'10' and they feel amazing; granted I have never ridden anything bigger. So, maybe 8.75 is a good place to start trying or a little smaller 8.5; just know if you're use to your 9+ rise its gonna feel different for a few hours.

Listen I was gpnna say 7.8" Scerbo. But it reminded Me I had a dream last night where the Scerbo bars were labeled as 6.4" rise? Weird.

Good luck finding an og pair now though.

Depends on the rise of the stem, and what you prefer really. You could go down to 9" and if they're still too high get a frontload. I'd say 8.5" should be tall enough with a topload, but I'm a fan of lower bars. 8.75 are by no means low bars though, so that'd probably be your best bet, kinda meeting in the middle.
