    new handle bars

    Hey guys, I have a 2005 Santa Cruz v10 right now with a Marzocchi 888. It has Easton ea50 Monkey Bars on it and I think they are 26" wide. I was looking at upgrading them since there old, beat up, and just a little too narrow. I was looking at something a little wider, maybe like 28” or 30”. I was thinking something along the lines of the Chromag Fubars OSX .Can you recommend any other opinions or options? I am also considering another stem along, but I do not believe it is direct mount

    agreed

    Not that chromag bars aren't nice and awesome looking but for the price you could probably get bars and a stem.

    I have owned sunlines and a few deity's and i just picked up the deity black label bars. So far im very impressed. They are really comfortable feeling bars.

    I got myself a Blackspire bar: a straight one for the singlespeed bike, cut down to 720 mm.

    http://www.chainreactioncycles.com/M...?ModelID=49627

    There's also a riser.

    I really wanted a Chromag bar but the shop I was buying from did not have it in stock at that time. I have not seen any specs for the bend/sweep of the Blackspire. Just riding along, it feels a little too straight but that feeling seems to disappear when riding over the interesting stuff.

    totally. i get all the hype for chromag, that they are so involved in the bc scene and yada yada yada but for what they are the price is just too steep. their stems are awesome though.

    they are nice. I found I didn't like the angles personally. I like the 5x9 that you get with sunline or deity.

    i have the raceface atlas and they are too wide for me. chopped an 1.25" off each end, to bring it down to 28.5". i know the idea comes from motocross but my KTM 690smc arent even that wide. personally unless you have extremely wide shoulders 31-30" is too wide and forget about tight trails through the trees.

    Been running the Spank Spike 777 slighty cut down (to about 755mm) for 1.5yrs, solid bars, don't even have any major cosmetic damage after lots of crashes, pick-up truck shuttling, and other general abuse. About the feel, it's a bit personal, but I find that the "square" angles (4*8) really help you get into proper attack position. Great bars.

    I have rode bikes with both Deity black label and the Answer dh's, both left uncut, and I really liked them both. So much so that I am planning on getting the Deity bars over the winter. They're super comfortable, incredible to look at, and an excellent price.
