That set up is really tall. You aren't going to have much leverage at all sitting down, for tight corners or climbing steep hills. Your arms are almost straight out. Standing up with your legs locked seems a strange way to set your bar height. It's a personal preference though, and if you are comfortable that's what matters.

For reference I am 6' 4" and got a set of Rox 1.75 inch risers mainly to move the bars more forward toward the center of the triple clamp. I put a low Pastrana Pro Taper bar on that has very little pull back. The net gain is probably an inch taller over stock and an inch forward.
