Date Reviewed: August 25, 2010

Strengths:    Strong. Bright white. Wide. Nice bend and angles.

Weaknesses:    none. Don't come in oversized, if you're into that.

Bottom Line:   
This is for the non-cross bar, 38mm rise, 5 Butt bars. These things rock. I've ridden for 18 years and have used Carbon, Aluminum, titanium and light weight steel, these bars are above all of those. It was like I got a new bike. I never realized what a difference a stiff bar would make. WAY stiff. And after riding them for the last couple months, I think I've fallen for them...I mean, look, when you pull up over something, it's instant. When going into a corner, I can throw the bike around. The slightest amount of pressure and you get a response. I may be putting more stress on the headtube now, but it's crazy. Climbing out of the saddle and pulling on the bar, there isn't any movement. After riding with these, I can't believe how much my old bars flexed. They are a bit heavy and I could care less. If you ask me, 8 ounces(235 grams) holding up 200 pounds doesn't seem smart anyway. These are worth every sent. And I have a feeling they will last a long time. Maybe even 18 years...I hope they're are around then.

Strengths:    cr-mo... wide... bmx flavour... brittish-they know how to make bikes these days!

Weaknesses:    foreign to the us, kinda landed on these by accident.

Bottom Line:   
cr-mo crossmember bars in a sweet satinized chrome... sure, titanium would be sweeter, but these are wide too-28"(compared with u.s. standard 24") plenty of room for the shifter and brake lever... these are stiff-almost... too stiff! :P

Strengths:    I have these bars on my 2005 Norco 4 HUN with a DMR Headstock stem. I love this setup for street riding.

Weaknesses:    I find these bars are wide and they hit off your knees a lot when your doing 180's, x-ups, and barspins.

Bottom Line:   
I love these bars for street but if they were abit shorter it would be better.

Date Reviewed: June 5, 2005

Strengths:    Great street/dj bar. Strong, and not too heavy for something as strong as it is. Could also be used for racing 4X or things alike.

Weaknesses:    Had a bit of trouble trying to cut it down, its more of a good thing tho: it wore down the blade of the saw i was using, shows u how strong it is!

Bottom Line:   
Great good for value bar. Is good for begginers or profesionals, and if u dont trust my opinion, just see how popular DMR are, and how many UK dirt jumpers use them!

Date Reviewed: March 10, 2003

Strengths:    Strong, cut-down markers, strong, well made, give BMX feel which is always good if you're used too it

Weaknesses:    too long, need tilted back when they come stock on rhythm

Bottom Line:   
avoid if you don't like something a bit more traditional like xlite assasin, but i ride quite alot of BMX so i appreciate them but are far wider than any bmx h-bar ive come across, so the lines marked in appropriate places come in handy, i took an inch of cos i want to but a shifter on in the future so decided to go careful and it seems to have improvedn them 100% along with tilting them back, but if you tip them too far back be wary of coming off the back while jumping cos theyve got loads of sweep. X-lite assasins are loads nicer.

Date Reviewed: September 2, 2002

Strengths:    Lovely shape and BMX -style looks.

Bottom Line:   
The 3-inch rise and good width gives a nice relaxed ride for tall people like me, especially as my frame has a short headtube. The grip section is parallel to the stem section, meaning a wide range of setup angles can be used. Sweep 'em back for cruising or forward for stunts'n'jumps.

Feels very stiff and strong. I have a Alu version - about a pound in weight.

Strengths:    Strength, width, colour, sweep, rise, british -everything!

Weaknesses:    NONE (ok they are a bit heavy)

Bottom Line:   
Used to ride BMX so I thought I would try these bars out, in short they are perfect. The width is just right and allows for better low speed control than other bars, good for lifting the front of the bike ,also they look great and will last forever (chromoly).
