I used to ride 8.5 rise bars with a 36 mm stem and that felt absolutely perfect then i made a transition to 8.75 with a 31mm stem and that feels too big for me (awkwardly wide too they're 30" long when i used to ride 28.5). I think going back to the original handlebar rise would be ideal for me but i would like something a but taller to compensate for the 36mm stem. I'm about 5'11 and 3-4 upsweet would be ideal with 11-12 backsweep is good too. The shadow vultus bars in 8.5 look perfect but im open to suggestions maybe I could choose something taller to compensate for the 36mm stem I dunno. What do you guys reccomend (I know there is a handlebar post on the front page already but i didnt think i was appropriate because i am throwing a whole bunch of numbers around xp)

Its pretty simple, just stick to what you like and you know what works for you.

If the bew bares feel to high, take on spacer out. Ud they feel to wide, cult 0.5 inch in every side of the bar.
