Well, firstly, having to bend over a bit when standing up is completely normal. There tends to be a common thread among tall adventure riders that when they stand up on the pegs they shouldn't have to bend over at all. This is not the case. Marc Coma is a pretty tall guy and bends over a bit when standing up for the entire Dakar. Proper standing posture when riding off road includes an 'attack' posture, which includes a bending of the knee and bending your torso down a bit, bending the elbows, and proper head/eye sight angle: head not up too far and head not down too far. Perfect standing posture: Point being, having to bend down a bit when standing up is a normal part of riding standing up. Having the mentality that you should be able to be completely upright when standing up is not realistic or effective when riding. An 'attack' posture when riding standing up is key. A 'hey I'm standing around waiting for the bus' posture us not! Torso strength and endurance is also key, but that's a whole other discussion! My recommendation would be a 50/50 approach. 50% of the rise would come from a bar riser and 50% of the rise would come from the bars themselves. This will achieve a decent rise while maintaining the structural stability of the bar to triple connection. These with a bar that has a bit more rise would work: Getting used to proper standing riding posture will allow you to not have to raise the bars so much. I am just throwing out my concerns and recommendations here. I'm not attacking anyone, so no need to flame.
