This -

I use risers on both my 4RT and OJ (pictured above). I'm 6'1", almost all of it leg. I was "aping" over the bars without the risers, very uncomfortable, not riding or turning well. After the risers, I felt more comfotable on the bike, which raised my confidence which led to better riding. I believe it was Mark Manniko that once said "Trials is 90% mental", and when folks are comfortable physically they are comfortable mentally which leads to confidence. Let the pundits argue all they want, set up your bike to your comfort level, go out and have fun!
