Good afternoon guys, i am looking to buy some new bars, my bars feel a little low like i am hunching over all the time so i need something to pick me up. I think i have the Animal Edwin Bars ( quite small ) from the 05-07 era, i cant find the specs anywhere on the net. I do plan on measuring but what do y'all suggest considering what bars i have already? I don't want to go big, i just need a bump up.

-I know rise is a big role but what do you consider a medium in rise height.
- Width is not a problem the moment, can always cut them if its too big.

I'd recommend Daily Grind bars. Great geo to start. 8.15" rise, which is not too big but not too small, it'll be a good step for you. They're 28.25" wide, but you can cut them down to 24.5" and still run a full grip before the bend. Plus they are super strong and look great, and you're supporting an awesome company.

Get 8.25's or 8.5's. Or just get a topload and add spacers if you like the bars
