Default HMD's XC Wicked bars

I'm bar shopping and like the look of these, but I'm not sure on the height. Does anyone have a pic of these installed?

I ordered a custom set from Eric at VicBaggers. Sent him a pic of the design I wanted and specified the bar length.

I wanted 3" forward and 3" up.

They were cheaper than HMD and I was able to spec them to my height.

Should have them Friday but here is a pic he sent me. ImageUploadedByMO Free1390866227.738712.jpg

I bought a set of the Wicked bars from HMD .they arrived this weekend. I installed them yesterday. Their website said they were "similar" pullback of the stock XC bars. Unfortunately they aren't. I measured them before I installed them. They are 6 to 8 inches shorter towards the front than the stock. I am going to have to either find a riser that will allow me to ride with them, or put the stock bars back on.
So if you have longer arms, these will work fine. I am 5'9" and my arms are fully stretched and I have to lean a little forward to reach them.
I also had to grind a chamfer on the right side switch cube on the inside diameter where they mount on the bars in order to fit the housing on the bar.
I can post a couple pics tomorrow of the bars if you would like.

Those look nice. Can you post a pic of those when you have them installed?
