    How high do you want to go? I used Rox Risers on Gus. The advantage of them is that you can move the bars around a bit.

    I imported them, but they do come up on Trade Me semi regularly. They are a bit taller than 20 mm though. Here the manufacturers site.

    I got them because they allowed me to do a fat bar conversion, as well as to rotate the bars to give myself a good standing position.

    I'd say most bike shops that sell mx bikes would have 20mm risers in stock- The bars ar just standard aren't they? Not a big ticket item.

    I alerted MarkS to a set of Rox Risers on Trade Me for $50 a while ago.

    Padmei's right about more standard risers.
