I reckon if i went for a gypsy instead of a hardway I would've been happier with it. But all fbm's rule!

I was eyeing them up on QBP yesterday haha

I am sick and tired of the "cliques" that this sport has recently developed. We should embrace the fact that we all ride a little kids bike, and not worry about the small details. When you take riding in its most basic form, we are all the same.

Have you noticed if the 4 peice bars feel stiffer than 2 peice? Thats what I have read but Ive never riden anyones bike that had 4 peice. Im digging the look for a build Im doing and was wondering if you have some first (and second) hand experience with it.
