hey bmx world i need some help picking out new bars for my bike...I currently have shadow Vultus bars which are a 8.25 rise. my buddy told me they were too small for me and i have to admit he is right because my back kills when i do long day sessions. Now im a pretty tall guy probably around the 6'1" to 6"2' area and he told me to get around a 9' or a 9.25' rise bars. so i started to look into it and im not sure if i should just upgrade my shadows to a 9' rise or just jump to the fit skyscrapers or maybe even the verde regent bars...Both fit and verde have a 9.25' rise to them and im just confused on what to do with this problem of mine so some fast feed back and helpful info would be awesome!!!

Well at your height I'd recommend 8.5-9 depending on if you have a front or top load

I'm 5'10 and I really enjoyed my 9" bonedeth bars with a top load. Really helped my back

Shadow Conspiracy Vultus bars. They're super light, strong, they come in many different colors, and I've seen someone with 9" rise Vultus bars.

so im guessing a 9 rise wouldnt be a bad idea for me then

Get the perfect 10s not only are they sexy but you won't have any back problems

It's all really personal preference. If you can, I'd try out one of your friends bikes that have bigger handlebars to see how you like them.
