thats what i get to choose from. and s&m slam xlts.


im debating on going to a 8inch bar coming from a 8.25 bar. i heard 8 smaller rise can help you with hops. but i dont think too much of that but ya never no. so. these are the specs i would like. 28 wide 8 or 8.25 high 12 back 1 or 2 up..i have kink lynx right now. i bent them. im not sure if i should get another pair. o a i also want black. i was think bout sunday victorys buttt idk if i would like the 4 degree upsweep? ....

well, 8.25 will be a little different from 8. but if you think about it, you get more leverage from a small bar, but only a quarter of an inch more that you pull up. its hard to describe. but 8.25 feels just fine and you wont notice much of a difference with your hops.

and youre black so why do you worry about anything effecting your hops?

cut the fuckers down

really simple process that can leave the edges looking nicer than they did before

obv won't sort your beef with the cross bar- but I have also heard they are sweet bars

i could maybe sell you sunday triumphs for $35 (usd) plus shipping, brand new, same specs as slams, just a little lighter than regs, a little heavier than slam xlts



edit: nevermind, $30 shipping...

There an inbetween rise, and they bigger crossbar makes a bigger bx+ more strength i do believe

Proper TTLs feels sweet, perfect for what your looking for and look really cool as they have a wide box!!! i would also reccomend subrosa pandora's but they look a bit weird!

http://3ride.com/v2/listing/?category1=bmx&category2=Bars those are my choices. i wantt black. or i can get s&m slams from this site. maybe a positive rise stem or flip it.http://www.bmxtransition.com/

10/20/2010 4:54 PM

primo tall boys. 22 ozs, not a big ugly crossbar, LIFETIME WARRANTY and only sixty bucks. ive ridden alot of bars and these take the cake. buy em if you want a 8.25x28 bar and if you want a 8x27 get the demo pa's

|

another day, another dollar

10/20/2010 4:55 PM

i would get subrosa pandoras in 8.25 by 27.5 is absolutly pefect but they dont have em in black or at all.

|

10/20/2010 5:00 PM

pandoras are not that strong. i had a pair and they bent and the part where the stem claps ovalized and the knurling sucks on them
