I don't know, I ride street and I have my bars parallel with the forks. My mates who flatland have their bars sheer to the ground..

but it's about how you fill good your bar, not about whether you ride street, vert or flatland..

i run mine parrallel with my bars... but how i run my bars shouldnt affect you... what you need to do is set them somewhere in the middle then ride your bike alot and you will get used to ur bike and that is the key to everything... being comfortable on your bike is the most important thing over anything .... without it you are stiff and dont get things you should get

for my bike ive found that parallel with the fork is the most balanced way to do it. if they are forward or backwards at all it makes barspins more wobbly, like one side has more weight than the other. frame is a WTP 4 seasons, it may have something to do with the angle of the fork through the frame.. dunno... nothing else feels right
