    Riser bar angle* and set up

    I'm dialing in a new Riser handlebar and stem. My stem is zero rise and I tend to run my upsweep more strait up and down, allowing the backsweep to still keep me slightly forward when seated. I've seen some people run their bar angle more inline with the headtube/fork angle. What are your opinions on bar angle for DJ, how do you have your bikes set up?

    I think tilted back (in line with fork, or maybe slightly forward of that) is best. It's just personal preference though.
