    I have the deity dirty thirty bars, loving the feel so far. I will say that the sunline has a shot-peened finish, which I believe helps prevent cracking by making the surface denser.

    like has been said, either will be great, but you can always cut the Deity bars down, whereas it's kinda hard to grow the sunlines longer.

    Either way, depending on how hard/often you ride and your weight, I wouldn't look at either of these bars as a multi-season investment. Your face may thank you later.

    I like dive bars....usually the beers are cheaper and the girls are not stuck up

    Vone. Just bolted some up this week. Really quality product and made the bike much more stable. Love the bend!

    Hear, hear.

    I've got a V-One (29.5"). Came from a V-One carbon cut down to 26". The al bar is fairly light too and offers a much better handling characteristic. If you want a 30" bar, try the Transition T-bar30. It's very much like the Sunline bar, except black, double-butted (not triple), and a full 30 inches. The sweep is the same although it has a slightly higher rise (25mm vs. 19mm). All together, a good choice if you want to go wide.

    I like the Dirty30... Feels much nicer than the sunlines imo. But it's all about personal preferance...

    I have both the V-ones (Demo 8) and the Deity (VPFree). Both are great bars! I like the widest I can possibly get.

    Please, for everyone's sake, go for the Sunline V-One with a .75" Rise and 29.5 Width. Light, strong, wide.

    Deity. Help out a small company that makes an incredibly good product. I've got the dirty 30's and I dig them, I've always anjoyed how deity bars feel from their standard bar to these. Plus the deity comes in death metal black.

    ^ this

    I was pretty cut and riding cruisers with my buddy, and going uphill was not a good scene.
