i've been riding slams since i was 16 and i'm 23 now. i'm only on my second set. the only reason i got a second set was because i wanted wider ones for my race bike, otherwise, i'd still be on my first. how did you snap them, how old are they, etc?

I'd love to know how you snapped them, seeing as how I never bent mine.

Anyway... S&M should warranty them.

I broke my slim bars by missing a tailwhip over a pyramid at the park, so I ditched the bike and it landed right on the corner of them.

Seemed like enough to break alot of bars, maybe i'm wrong though.

i did a fence boost, and i ditched my bike from about nine feet onto pavement and it landed right on the left side of the bars. they were a little bent before though. so that helped it along. but ive had them for almost 3 years. so im not going to warrenty them. they've had a good life.

no, its just the fact that they've lasted me almost three years, and they've gone through alot. so why not support the company somemore and just buy a new set?

You'd rather spend $40-$60 on new bars instead of getting brand new bars for free? I don't think I could do that.

I have Slams, and they are the best.
I can x-up so much better, and they are more comfortable and all that good stuff.
They even help my horrible tables become less horrible!
