Not really, they are more of the N.G. of O.G.'s.

Holy living ****. 1 oz.???? That will totally help with my frontflip no handers to sponsorship.

I don't know about how good S&M is with their warranty's but either way I doubt you'll have much trouble bending or breaking either of those bars. They are both really good and strong.

I'd still rather trust Sunday! over S&M, although I do like the S&M family because Fit is one of my favorite brands.

actually... original S&M slambars were copies of some of the first bars STANDARD BYKE CO made...

The original ripoff you might say...


Sunday, hands down, better materials, lighter, much stronger.

Well Standard doesn't make big bars anymore to the best of my knowledge. So who cares.
Sunday is also more expensive though. And the weight is like an ounce so don't be a ***** about it, haha.

The only thing left is 4Bake(S&M's treatment) vs. 41 thermal (Sunday's treatment)

I much prefer the feel of S&M bars to anything else. Odyssey and Sunday bars seem way to fat for my liking

Fat? Most bars are 7/8". I don't think anyone makes thick tubing bars anymore. It's probly just the grips.

Could be but it seems as if the tubing is thicker. You can just look at the civilians compared to my beringers for example and see the difference
