so with all the low axle to crown forks and flat bars, who has the lowest bar hight?

my dhr, with a 8" travis, is 40.5" from the ground to the end of the grip.

Your DHR also has a ridiculously short headtube.

how about running 3" risers upside down?

bikes:
04 norco 4by w/ 05 sherman firefly :(
07 KTM 144sx :)

I like to throw up prior to dropping into a-line. I find it makes jumping easier.

The closer my bars are to my chin the better… Might be a little slower in the corners but way more leverage and control…

Some of the stupidly low bar heights seem like it equates to riding a scooter with the bars at your shins… I'd sooner fit into a bike than sit up on top of a pedistal…

the relationship of bb to bar height is more important than the static ground to bar height. as bb heights have dropped from 15"+ to sub 14", to maintain the same (balanced) foot to bar height, obviously bar heights had to drop. putting a flat bar low fork [HTML_REMOVED] low stack on something like a vp free is gonna be pretty front heavy / sketch when it gets steep [HTML_REMOVED] tech, but the same setup on an m6 might be just spiffy. its all relative. ie - i run a flat bar on my 13.5" bb bike, but a 3/4" riser on my 14.25" bike. anyways… to each his own.
