I always thought these threads were stupid but I can't make up my mind and im bored as fuck. See I was set on fit macs but recently I've been thinking my cult leaders (8.5x29) were ridiculously large. I'm kinda of thinking of getting medium sized bars like 8.3-8.45 I like the mutiny midroids but not sure. I tried Sky highs and fucking hated them so awkward feeling. I'm thinking 8.25-8.4 bars and a tl stem would work best. width is no big deal I can cut it down a bit.

Which bars should I get out of these?:
Fit macs
Mutiny Midroids
Fly tierras

If only I could find a pair of fly pantera 4 bars : ( those are fucking perfect.

If you think 8.5 is too big , don't get Fit Mac's. They have bigger bends and 8.75 is big.
Mutiny Glamroids are sick and heard good stuff about them. Nice size as well.
Fly Tierras seem thin? Ugly colours. Go for the Mutiny's.

You're already answering your own question for the most part. Just get something around the size you like, but get them from the company that has the warranty, and also get heat treated ones. They are less likely to fatigue prematurely and snap on you.

To be honest I feel like the thing that effects bars the most for ME is the width. I like the Tree bars though, 4up 12 back, that's the shiiiiiiiit.

I would go for the Mid-Roids.
I tried the Glam-Roids and loved them, they were way too wide though.

That's probably what I'll do. 8.3x29 which I could cut seems good. I rode kink badgers before which were 8x27 and way too small.

Up. I'm about to order but I had 8.5x29 with a fl and liked it but I hate the look of big bars do you think I should just ride 8.25 with a tl, how close would that feel to 8.5?

Yeah I'm thinkin about it them but I worry 8.2/8.25 would be too short, I hate the 8s I have. I also use a 5mm and 2mm spacer so you think 8.25 and a topload would be pretty good?

I'm having the dilemma I'm running Verde cartels 2s I have animal bobs but they feel too small I don't really base my bars on size I go on how they feel that's where I'm stuck at

Yeah I'm in between, 8s are too small and 8.5 seemed a bit too big so I'm thinking 8.25 and a topload would put it in the middleish.

I run a fl but I don't think it changes much in height just the way your bike feels but I could be wrong though

|

6/2/2013 4:38 AM

a TL can change height by up to a good 1/2 inch haha
