Need advice on new bars

What bars would you reccomend to go onto the stock clamp for someone 6'2" ? Do you want more or less rise and sweep if your a larger person than the standard dirt biker?
I just want the quickest ,cheapest fix right now till I decide later on stabilizers, new clamps and fat bars.

But in truth it comes down to what you are willing to spend. If you opt for protapers and the adapters, you're looking to spend about $160 or so retail. (check with mxsouth.com as Jeff will likely be able to save you a buck or two from retail)
EDIT: so then I read your post again and realized I in no way answered your question. FLY's are a nice bar, and very reasonably priced. IMO the renthals are nice as well, but as pointed out they are a bit pricier. I like a high bar for the reasons above, but if you sit alot when you ride a high bar may lead to arm/shoulder fatigue. I settled on what i'm using by sitting on a few used bikes at the dealer with different bar setups on them. For me higher seems better
