I might want to be getting new bars sooner or later. I am quite locked in on the Solace Bars from Kink, because they practically have the same geo as my current Fiction Troop Bars which are also 8.65 tall and have a 28 inch width, similar upsweep I believe, and the solace bars come in a blood red colorway which looks kind of marble like, and somewhat the same style as my frame

I am pretty sure A LOT of you guys will recommend Odyssey bars which WILL be a wise choice but I really do like the look on the Kink bars. The Kink's also have lifetime warranty as well.

Everyone I know who had Kink bars snapped or bent them, except for the OG Badger bars anyway. So personally that steers me away from Kink bars, but I'm sure they've gotten better now so they should be good

Personally.... I hate most kink parts. I have seen too Kink many forks and bars snap or bend (my friend's replacement set of forks actually arrived bent a few months ago).
If it were me, I'd steer clear of their bars. Especially because there are so many other quality brands out there now.
Also, many other bars have a very similar or identical geo to the Solace ones, so it's not like those bars are one of a kind.
Theres a ton of bars with 1 deg upsweep and 12 back if you dont mind budging a degree. or 2 up and 11 back.

Those tires look so good and still I reckon that Lewis bars would look sweet even with brakes.

personally, i think that the bone deth deadman bars look much better with brakes (kinda weird without brakes)
the fit bennys look pretty clean without brakes.
the deadmans are also a little closer to your geo i think.

oh and last thing some four pieces look really weird with a topload stem, sometimes depends on the style tho. I ended up switching my stem from black to polished when i got my black bennys for that reason, so it wouldnt look weird. Rounded stem might also look weird with four piece bars. idk just shit to keep in mind lol

So quick question. What exactly does upsweep do? Like does it affect tricks or anything? I've heard bars with more upsweep are more comfortable, true or bull? Figured this would be the thread to ask

Honestly? Who gives a shit. Its the fucking internet. I hate all of you equally.

Upsweep can make it more comfortable on your wrists. It's all preference. I prefer 3 or 4 deg of upsweep. Depends on your build as well. Just try out some bars with more if you're wondering if you'd like it.
