How to buy Handle Bars

There are different heights, widths, sweeps, etc.
Anyone got any ideas.
I am 170lbs, 5'8" and I ride my bike strictly in the back country on dirt roads and trails.

through the years it seems the "cr high" bend has become the bench mark. around here we trim our bars to fit between the trees. at 29" it becomes a problem getting the clutch and front brake lever brackets in the right place. they end up in the bend of the bars. the renthal yz80 bend (7/8" diameter) has become pretty popular in that it comes at 29", the grip/lever area is the same length as "normal" bars, and is very close to the cr high bend.

I look forward to getting a new set of bars.
