I went from 8 with a front load stem. To 8.25 with the fl, to a 8.25 with a top load. Now I've got 8.75 with the tl. And I ride 20.5-20.75 frames. Every time I get bigger bars I like them more than the last. I'm a little taller than you(5'11") so the effect for you should be greater.

I'm 5'6" and I use a topload with 8.25" bars and it feels good. You will find out what you like just by playing around a little bit. If you want you could flip your stem over to see how it feels being taller.

I think you should go for 8.25" at least with a frontload. I think 8" is best with top load, but again this is just preferences. You'll adjust to any of them. Taller bars sometimes feels better on your back too. But too tall can also feel awkward.

its all preference man, its pretty much trial and error... see if someone you know has a similar setup you can try out
