Straight tubes have a lot going for them. Compared to bent tubing, they're generally stronger, lighter (If they're going from the same place and ending up in the same place, meaning less material if it's a straight tube), and less likely to bend. So why do people keep putting bends in stuff? Fly started with the newer Pantera bars, but now Dirty450 (Who you may remember me posting some awful stuff from before...) have created these new 4-piece bars.
Why bend the cross-bar like that? Purely to look like Scerbo bars, despite there being an obvious reason for Scerbos to bend? It just makes no sense.
Pretty much the lack of sense in making bars that are 7.25" (But you can choose from "Lighter" or "Heavier", I bet those heavier ones are gonna sell well) tall in today's BMX world. I'm all for choice, but it seems strange in a tougher market-place to sell things that aren't popular, but more importantly aren't even good? I'm not saying that people should just make stuff for fashions sake, but making stuff that's not fashion but isn't even good seems odd.
That was my SPRFLS blog for the day...
