Do you hop higher with lower bars or higher bars?

I dont think bar height is all that relevant. Technically, no matter the size, you can only physically pull them so far (to your chest). So technically, your front wheel would be higher with shorter bars if you pulled your bars that high.
But in reality, nobody yanks their bars to their chest unless theyre really short and run really tall bars, so just get something comfortable but not too big.
Bar width makes a huge difference though. The smaller they are, the more in line your hands and shoulders are. That means you can use more muscle when pulling up, resulting in a higher hop.
As someone on here stated before "do a push up with your hands under your shoulders, then do one with your arms spread to the side. Which is easier?"

You gotta have big bars to have swag.








I hop the same with either small or big bars but for me it was easier with smaller bars just because they give more leverage
