Another renthal question... lows or mediums?

Hey guys,

getting ready to get a set of renthal bars. Im just looking for something slightly lower/agressive then stock. To be honest the stock is almost fine by me. Its the bend in the bar that feels a bit strange and tweaks my left hand a bit during long riding.

i bought those adjustable risers to bring the bar back (and up a tiny bit), so i dont want to lose that by going with something really low.

Are the mediums just a bit more lower then stock? If so i think they're the ones for me.

Any thoughts or experience on this?

might have found my answer here:

nd4spdbh seems like he was in a similar situation as me. he was debating between the meds and ultra lows (im not sure why the lows werent mentioned) he bought the UL's, decided he wasnt happy and changed back to stock.

so im on the fence but leaning towards mediums.

but if anyone has any of their own input it would be great

I installed a set of renthal highs yesterday and took some pictures obviously you are looking for mediums but I think there might be inferences to be made.

The first two pictures compare the stock bars to the highs which are just slightly higher and wider with a more neutral bend.

The last is a stock bar compared to an ultra low.

If you're looking for something that is stock or just a bit lower with a straighter bend for the wrist mediums should be the ticket.

If you want an in between, the renthal street fighter is just a smidge lower than the medium, maybe a half inch or so forward and down, and has a much nicer bend than stock... I've ridden with the street fighter and medium and love them both

I have some Renthal low bars that I haven't put on the bike. But just holding them up next to the stock bars they seem a little bit lower. The bent part is a little more straight, if that makes sense? Here's a pretty bad picture I tried to take for comparison:
