I've been wanting to order some bars and I've basically come to 2 options . The first is Fit Savage bars , then Stranger Brooks bars . Both have 4 degrees upsweep which I'm curious to try . The Fit bars have straight gauge tubing so they should feel pretty solid and they're US made . The Stranger bars are sweet because they're 4 piece bars that are capped and 9.5 rise with 4 upsweep . I'm kinda curious in trying 4 piece bars . Which would feel more stiff ? Fit bars are 2.7 pounds and Stranger ones are 2.3 so maybe the tubing will feel better than a 4 piece design ? Also the Fit bars have slightly higher rise

id go with the fit bars to be honest with you, since i got a new front end setup i got a taller fork tube and higher rise stem its a little too high for me so to drop it slightly fit savage bars been lookin like a good idea but also kind of waiting for the new/old GT bars to drop.

Fit. I wouldn't support Stranger. Another generic brand. Spend your money on a brand that has done more for bmx.

i've got the savage bars. fuckin love them. sturdiest feeling bars i've ridden. the rise is pretty huge though but i'm guessing you already know you want some super tall bars. i'm 6'5" and i couldn't imagine riding anything taller than these. also, i didn't notice the weight difference even though my previous bars weighed a full pound less. extra weight in the front doesn't seem to be a bother, unlike the other the end of the bike.

If my bars ever snap or if I ever have spare money FIT Savage will be my next bars unless I change my mind with 4 piece or if something different comes out.
