After reading the thread about bar/stack height it got me thinking about what most riders bar heights are and handle bar width. Obviously there is a range that is correct and not necessarily a right or wrong but I want to get an idea of the average setup. Post your bar height, width and what bike it’s on. Also type of trails you ride and body type would be great.
Please measure to the center of your bars by the grips.

I have an Evil Insurgent size large. 5’ 10”, broad shoulders.
Bar height is 42 3/8”, 780mm, 35mm stem. I prefer steeper tech trails but it’s the do it all bike. I just redid the bars and stem to get a more comfortable climbing position, which it did but also raised my handle bars a little more than I wanted. Total height increase was approximately 25mm. I only have a few rides on this new set up. So far it seems good. I’ll check the DH bike later and post that up too.

Ok... 41.5" bar height, 775 width, 50mm/0-degree stem on a '20 Specialized Enduro size S4.

I'm 6ft, 200 lbs, wide shoulders, longish torso.

I ride mostly steep tech, some park, and am on an enduro race team sponsored by Specialized.

106cm bar height, (42"), 740mm width, 50mm/0-degree stem on a Santa Cruz 5010 v3 w/ 150mm fork.

I'm 174cm (5'7"), 61kg (135 lbs), kinda narrow shoulders. It's my do-it-all bike (except for pure XC; for that I have a HT 29er).

If we can all not mix metric and imperial measurements that would be great. Thanks - my brain
