    Blackline vs. Dirty30

    I'm getting new bars. I'm trying to decide between the deity blacklabel or dirty30 bars. i know theres not much of a difference. the blacklabel's are 31 inches and the dirty30's are 30 inches. if i get the blacklabel's I'm gonna end up cutting them down to at least 30 anyway. So basically I'm just not sure what rise i want (blacklabel's are 15mm and dirty30's are 25mm).

    i like the way the blacklabel's look better. is the 10mm difference enough to make a noticeable difference?

    edit: woops title should be blacklabel*
    IS THIS SOMETHING YOU CAN SHARE WITH THE REST OF US AMAZING LARRY ?!?!?!

    I rode dirty30s last season and blacklabels this season... I prefer the blacklabel hands down... It feels more in the attack position... Booth feel equally stiff that I can tell, the 30s took a serious beating and never an issue, thats the reason for staying and moving on to the blacklabel...

    Either way you cant go wrong hte blacklabels feel better for me... Good luck.

    I have also owned both. I have had 2 dirty 30's and now black labels. The black labels are really comfortable for some reason. Everyone of my friends who rides them agrees they are easy to get used to.

    Not sure why they are so comfortable but i will definately buy them again in the future.

    like bullcrew said the blacklabels will put you in a much more aggressive stance.
