We have a late edit for you…go toPAGE 8 to find out how to WIN A PAIR OF SHADOW VULTUS BARS. It’s easy, it’s breezy, it’s a beautifully simple contest!

Contest is over. The bars go to Steven Sanchez for making fun of Ryan Sher…and really, that’s all I was looking for. Check his short, but ridiculing response:

“The newest member is Albert Mercado from San Diego, CA.
Seth Kimbrough is probably the tallest.
Ryan Sher is so short he doesn’t have a shadow.”

His new bars are in the mail! -Ryan

“Our bars are internally threaded for use with Tree barends. I wanted to make barends that would securely stay inside my handlebars and never fall out. This design does just that. Regular barends can be used on these bars as well so if you just want the bars you can run them with your current barends.

“They are available in a choice of either 1 degree or 4 degree upsweep. The 1 degree upsweep feels the same as the traditional ‘Slam-type’ bar. The 4 degree upsweep is for people who like the upsweep but want to ride an 8” bar.

“Compact design for a more progressive look.

“They have been laboratory tested against other brands of 8″ handlebars and they were the strongest bars that we tested.” – Sam Schulte, Tree Bike Co.

Bars: JRI Handlebars

Weight: 756g (1.6 lb.)
Colors: Black, white, bright green, matte purple, chrome plate

“BMX handlebars have been on a wild ride. First they were strong and heavy, then they were small and weak. Fluted and flat came next, followed by seven, ten, and later 13 butts. Four-piece bars enjoyed a brief following ten years ago, and this design is making a comeback. In flatland it never left. Around two years ago somebody—probably an S&M rider—stopped grabbed a pair of Slam Bars and got the whole bar race started all over again. Today the most popular BMX bars are at least eight inches tall with tight bends, a nice back sweep and a crossbar. Butting remains a big part of the arms race, but has anyone really cut a pair down the middle to see if all the hype is really true? We haven't. Jeremie Infelis chose the geometry of our multi-butted full-sized BMX bars, and they're quite comfortable. Every BMX company on earth offers a similar handlebar, so talking about bends and sweeps and rises seems almost futile. Our recommendation: go to your favorite bike shop, feel every pair of bars on the wall and buy the ones you like best. If you get a chance to grab our JRI handlebars, we think you'll be impressed.” – McGoo, SNAFU
