Check out the United Beacons. They are 8.6" tall with a narrow 26.5" width. Most other tall bars are a lot wider, so if you want something tall and narrow they might be good to check out.

If you want something a little bit wider, the United Mothership XLs are cool. 8.8" rise and 29" wide.

Remember you can always go with a wider bar and cut a bit off the ends.

Im 6'1" and I have Odyssey GY3s (on sale for $30 on dans, or used to be) 8.66x28 on a topload stem and they feel SUPERB. However, arthritis is starting to kick my ass so im probably going up to 9x28.5, which is a shame because I really like these GY3s and am not really a fan of big bars like that. Im looking into FBM Black Flags and cutting them down, or maybe Odyssey Sweepstakes. Not quite sure yet. But I would highly suggest the GY3s if theyre still on sale.

I've Got Shoulder Problems & A Sore Back, I Just Got 9" Bars That I've Cut To 29" & They're AWESOME! Anything From 8.7" To 9.25" Will See You Well! Make Sure You Get A Bar With DECENT Upsweep! 3 Or 4 Is Where You Want To Be!

Fit Mac 8.75"
Fit SkyScraper 9.25"
Fly Fuego 9"
Mutiny Manroid 8.7"
Odyssey Sweepstakes 9"
S&M x Credence 8.7"
Shadow Conspiracy Vultus 9"
Sunday Tall T 8.7"
Tree Moto 9"
Volume Bourbon Street 8.7"
Wethepeople Patron 8.75" or 9" / Wethepeople Sterling 9.2"

Any Of Those Will Be Totally Fine!

6'0" here also. My current bars I run are the WeThePeople Wham bars which are now called the Sterlings (9.2 rise). I also have Fit SkyScrapers, and Bone Deth Deadman 4 pc bars and the Odyssey Lichtenberger (Sweepstakes).

I chose these bars because of their upsweep and rise. My back is pretty comfortable now. I'd probably go for the Fit Skyscrapers for the 4 upsweep and 9.25" rise if I were you. The Bone Deth's do come with a 28" width though with a 9" rise. I also run an uncut fork, with all spacers and a Topload so bar height is up there.

I'm 5'11" and run the WTP sterling bars with a Lincoln (topload stem) and an uncut steerer tube on my R32 forks. This is a great height for me and has really helped prevent back ache. I used to run Tree Moto bars (9.5 rise) but they were too wide and slightly too tall. The Sterlings are narrower (I have them cut to 27" wide) and have a narrower crossbar as well although they are not much shorter in height (9.2 inch rise vs 9.5 inch rise for the motos). So I would definitely recommend that you check out the WTP bars.

Fit Mac Bars, I run them right now and they feel amazing ( though im not any where near 6'0). They are 8.75 tall so there not crazy tall and 28.5 wide so there not super wide either, plus they have 4 upsweep which is rad cool

I liked the height perfect 10s on a challenger gave me. I'm 6'0" and old, and that was perfect to keep my lower back from killing me after a longer ride.
