Hey Buck, I'm running the 1 1/8" Trail Tech X-Bars (Windham bend) and a Trail Tech riser clamp. The Trail Tech offers the XX clamp in a low, medium and high version. I got the high. I'm 6-4" and the Windham bend bars w/ high clamp combo works well for me. This combo cured the bar vibration, some arm pump and the back ache issue while standing up to ride, which is most of the time for me. The TT bars are also wider which is great. No cable length issues either though any higher and there probably would be. The stock setup was horrible. Oh yeah, TT clamps only work with the stock stem. There's some stronger aftermarket stems and tie rods out there but I'd rather the softer stock units, instead of the frame, give during a crash. I speak from experience. I'm a hard core enduro rider and this set up has worked well for me. I also changed the stem, stem bushing, tie rods, ends, ball joints and cleaned/greased the A-arm bushings for some good preventive maintanance. Highly recommend the TT bars and clamp. Hope this helps.
