If you're tall, I've heard that the Renthal Jimmy Button bend handle ars are very comfortable, but I don't have any firsthand experience with these bars yet. I've also heard good feedback about Thumper Racings Handlebar risers used in conjunction with these bars, but again this is coming from riders 6'2" and taller.

I threw them away one day after buying the bike. I tried several different used ones from the "boys" but I wound up buying protapers with a 1" rise on the triple clamp. The pro taper's design allows for alot of adjustment potential. I have not looked back since. Just to help I'm 6 feet tall.
