Flatland parts.

I was wondering how well flatland parts would hold up for street, as I ride mainly technical street (not all foot high ledges) but I am interested in doing a more streetland like Matthias dandois or Terry Adams.
I was thinking of getting a 36mm offset S&M Redneck FLT stem on my next build and was just curious about how well it would hold up.

Should be good as long as you're not jumping off roofs, I'd say the same about all flatland parts really

Just look at Matthias Dandois bike check and see what he runs... whatever he runs, you can run lol

I don't crash, I do random gravity checks...

They are crazy lol, if I wanted flatland bars I would probably go for intricats just because I know they would hold up.yo normal riding for a long time

all those would hold up fine to street, flatland parts are not weaker than regular street parts by any means (for the most part). the main difference you would feel is the geometry. flatland bars will have less sweep, forks will have steeper/no offset, etc.

the stem you're thinking about is no different than a regular size version.

if you're interested in trying a bit of flat, try a shorter offset fork, maybe a shorter frame, but it's honestly not necessary. mattias rides a 21 frame, regular stem and street bars. the only flat-ish parts is his forks (13mm offset i think) ares tires (1.90, 100+ psi) and griptape on his pegs which honestly isn't that critical.

if anything, i would recommend front and back brakes to learn flatland basics that you can apply to street/park

Pretty well, and you have to consider many are modeled after street/dirt/park parts. Too bad things are not made like they use to be. When race parts, street parts and dirt/park parts were interchangeable.

Having the crossbar so low definitely makes the bars more prone to bending or cracking on either end of the crossbar
