    What bars?

    I am looking for a new set of bars, and I see guys riding with 30-40mm rise bars. Is there a benefit to higher rise bars? Or just rider preference?

    No one has an opinion?

    I like 3"s (76.2mm). It's purely a personal preference issue. ; )

    I just picked up some Deity Topsoil bars, 50mm rise. Will be installing them tomorrow.

    Yeah I ride 50 mm or 2 inch rise. I would have gone with 3s but couldn't find a bar with a 31.9 clamp and I already had the stem and didn't want to buy a new one. I will probably go with 3s on the next bike, but not sure on the narrower clam diameter.... but those bars look like good bars...
