    Odyssey civillian. They are light, strong, 41 thermal, and made by odyssey, thats enough for me, although i would probably go with the skim milk bars because I don't like the amount of back/upsweep the civillians have. Plus they are 10 bucks cheaper.

    i like the 3 amigoes because they are the best looking (in my opinion) and the lightest (i think)

    The 3 Amigos are the lightest by about .3 ounces over the Sunday bars. I have heard a lot about the Civillians being very good, and the Scerbos being pretty much amazing. Anyone try the scerbos?

    With the 27" bars on my mountain bike, my thumbs when on the bars are further apart than my shoulders are. Not too comfortable, in fact the 24.5" stock bars on the BMX were a little wide and I cut them down to about 23", and they feel better. Now my hands on the bars are about even with my shoulders.

    This is how your bars should be, it makes it easier to steer, and its more comfortable...

    Thats why i like/want wider bars, because right now my hands are usually on the outmost part of the grips on the bars, and they arent even cut, they are still 24.5". And after riding my friends bike that has Slams that are about 26" i like the feel much better. Someone buy me Fit HIlites!!!!

    So you dont need to post images of Standard bars.





    Scerbo bars are a little weird looking, i wouldnt want those 'old school GT reminiscent bars(spelling?)', stick with Sunday or Odyssey, and if you want another company to look into; S&M.

    24.5" is too skinny? I dont know how you can ride with 26-28" bars. Mine are 21"(including endcaps) and they feel perfect. My fried rides with his as 18" but thats just ridiculous. He has to hold the bends and i feel so wobbly when riding his bike.

    What do you like better about wide bars? I was trying to ride my cousins bike with like a 28" bars and i couldnt stand it.

    You and your freinds ride scooter bars, haha.
    Wider bars give you more stability, and they are more comfortable...

    Right now with my stock S&M Mediums at 24.5" i have my hands on the outsidemost part of the grip, almost hanging off, and thats annoying, so i want bigger bars, like 26".

    And after riding my friends bike who has uncut Slams(28") i found that x-ups are easier with wider bars, its easier to get them past clicked so they look better.

    You think x-ups are easierwith wider bars? I find it to be the exact opposite. I think I might just need a longer TT. Im like 6'2" on a 20.5" TT and i dont have a lot of clearance from the bars. I also dont feel wobbly with 21" but anything smaller than that makes the bike feel ********.

    X-ups are far easier with wider bars; there's a reason why Yeagle, Badger, and all the other guys that do ridiculous past-clicked x-ups run tall, wide bars. The same goes for turndowns, lookbacks, lookdowns, indowns, et al.

    My friend has some Fit Flow Lolites and those are pretty nice- but I am leaning towards the Fly Pantera bars, they are wider and a bit higher up than the Amigos and I just like the look of them better.

    Once again, Fly 3 Amigos bars are like the bars on my scooter.

    Get bars that are at least 25"

    I don't like bars that big, and I have narrowed my search for new bars down to Fly Panteras or Fit Flows. What do you think?

    Fit Flows, they are made in the same factory as the S&M bars, and they have warrantys.
