Hey guys, I have been riding bmx for about 2 years now and am loving the sport. I've just recently been getting serious about it and have caught myself propping my palms up on the bars to get a little extra hight while riding to avoid back cramps, I'm young and have had no prior back pain. Im currently running a 9in bar and am 6ft 5in, thinking about going for a 10in bar but am conflicted about spending the money only to find there way to tall. I've read some conflicting forums about this bar size and am curious to see what you all have to say, thanks.

I am 6'2" and swapping to a 9.5" bar from a 9" helped my back massively. I'd say it also depends on the frame and stem you are using.

Yeah, that makes sense to me. Thanks, I'm probably gonna go with a 10 and it's a pretty small Fit Eddie 3. Thanks for the advice
