i went from 7.75" rise, to 8" rise, felt better but still feels too low, i know its an "opinion" and a "feel" thing but i have yet to see anyone who rides where i live that i can "test" out their bars(and if i do their on a wal-mart special).... i'm ready to order, just not sure if i should go 8.25 or 8.5-- any words of wisdom?
i'm 5'11" BTW and ride 20.75tt

just go with 8.25 and throw as many spacers under your stem.
im 5,10 and im running 2 spacers, odsy elementary, and propper ttl 8.25 bars, 21'' toptube and it feels perfect.
i tried running a toplad stem, but it felt weird. so sometime going just a little to high will feel really weird.
