So the question I have here is, what experience do you all have with different height handle bars? I get the feeling higher will be better and more comfortable while cruising, but will they be better for going over dirt jumps?
Personally I love the look of these higher rise handle bars in this image and I really want them. But I really dont wanna get them and find out that they stick up too much.

My height is 5 foot 9, so just under 6ft


this is what Ill be riding, with 26" wheels.

High rise


virtually no rise

For your height I would suggest 2" or 3" rise. Clearly it depends on the person. But, that is pretty standard on DJ bikes.
