So I ordered the cult hawk bars. Not only were they late coming in, but they were advertised as 8.8 and the tards sent me 8.75.. waiting for a response from them to get this fixed. They're nice bars though. But I'm curious to see if this is a common mistake. This is my first experience with cult and it hasn't been good so far..

You're seriously moaning about .05 of an inch? I'd put a lot of money on you not being able to feel the difference.
Did you measure them yourself as 8.75? Because I'm pretty sure the hawk bars are only available in 8.5 and 8.8

You're damn right. And being able to feel the difference or not, is not the point. The point is, if you advertise something as one thing, don't give your customer something else, regardless if it's a "small" mistake or not. Give them what they paid for.

Robbie Morales is the fucking man! Don't talk shit about his company! Any and every company makes a mistake. Maybe they made a mistake here or your measurements are off who knows

lol I will, if they don't fix the issue.. screw em. and you're right. I completely agree, but, if they're a decent company, and care about their customers, it's their responsibility to resolve the issues as best as they can.. I'm sure the issue will be fixed, but like I said, I'm just curious to see if this is a common issue or one of the rare ones

I get where you're coming from, but to raise THIS MUCH of an issue to me is a little too much.

I can see contacting them to make them aware, but to post it online to bash them? Seems a little much. Did you also blast them on Facebook, instagram, and all the other social media?

Where did you order them from? How do you know they're 8.75 and not 8.8?

Stop being a little bitch and just be stoked you've got a good pair of bars. Spoilt little shit. .05 of an inch and you're acting like they're unusable

Don't be all key board warrior here! We're trying to help you by not attempting to slash a company online like a little girl before even contacting said company! I grew up down the street to where Morales lived and his parents stayed for years when he left. This is a bullshit ass fucking thread and it should be burnt

How about you measure them, might just be a labeling error.

Then "burn it".. Keyboard warrior" lol Take it easy kid. I'm not freaking out on you people. If anything some of you are attacking me because I'm "being a bitch" for wanting exactly what I ordered Lol Like I said TWICE before i made this thread to ask if this is a common mistake or not with the company, not to bash them. If I came off that way, I apologize

Kid? I'm for sure not a kid. I've probably been riding bmx before you were even a thought. I just don't appreciate someone bashing a company especially when they haven't even contacted that company yet.

Then don't act like a salty kid. Read what you've posted, you sound like a little bitch. And at least give them the chance to respond before you post on here about it.

If everyone posted a thread every time they had an issue with their order, there'd be twice as many threads every day

If they're 8.75" rise, and you're SURE of it, then they ain't no Cult Hawk bars. Maybe the product packaging was only labeled incorrectly and the bars actually are the Cult Hawk models. Do the graphics on the bar you got match the Hawk bars? If so, maybe this is what happened.

Yeah it looks to be just a misprint. It happens. I thought about it and I kind of made a big deal out of nothing and ran my mouth out of frustration that it was slow coming in, and then seeing the misprint on the tag.. i WAS being "a little bitch" lol it was uncalled for and apologize to anyone and everyone on this thread, especially those of you I was rude with.

No worries buddy. Maybe you just need to word things a little differently in the future? Or proof read before you hit post smile

The thing is, bmx bars aren't measured correctly anyway. I recently measured 4 pairs of bars just so I could see what the actual difference is in mm. They were measured from the bottom of the clamping area to the highest point where the grip goes. So the upsweep and width has an affect on the total height.
Bars are supposed to be measured from the centre of the clamping area to the centre of where the grip goes. So all bmx bars are actually about half an inch lower than they advertise. 9" bars actually only give about 8.5" of rise. And the measurement isn't that accurate.
Chop an inch off each end of bars with 3 degrees upsweep and you lose a bit of rise with it. That's why I said .05" isn't worth worrying about. The width of your grips can make more difference than that
