I'm six foot tall and need a set of bars that will allow me to tour this summer on my L. Mostly weekend rides putting on maybe 200-250 miles a day. The stock bars stink for this. As of right now Im too hunched forward for comfortable touring. Theres too many choices out there and I dont have a local dealer that stocks anything. Where do I start??

Pro-Taper KX-HI (Taperwall with the Adapter) this should get you higher than stock, and still use the stock cables. I'm 6'1" and do 300-400 mile days often and it's a fine set up for me. Search protaper on here and you'll see some set-ups.

Flubber I just went through this same thing! I had already had 1 inch risers, but still not tall enough. I am 6'5. This is the most inexpensive way to do it, and the tallest you can go with stock cables. On ebay you can buy risers for I think 40 bucks. Also on ebay if you search the stores you can buy tag cr double high bend for 40 bucks. Buy a new set of grips, and there you go! Believe me when I say that is the cheapest, I searched. Good luck!
