flat bar with skateboard trucks!!!

nah not really, those suck!!!

i'd go round bar, you can hit that kinda crooked and be ok, a flat bar you'd hit the edge and it'd throw you the other direction and flat bars have sharper corners for the rare occasion you do get caught on one.


that is only if you are talking about a 12 bar

I don't care what kind of bar it is as long as they serve alcohol.

i would roll with a flat bar for your first bar.... until u get used to hitting 12 and staying on the bike. most people learning 12 there first instinct is to jump off the back the flat bar for the most part keep the bike going strait unless your just really sloppy. but the round bar will let your bike go to either side for a nasty fall.

i liked my round bar, but i wanted to do foot in bar tricks and i didnt like it for that, so i went back to a flat bar....plus i ride street and it's always funny to pull into gas stations and park it on the bar and walk inside

and for learning, scrape your tail, it's soft and forgiving.

So it seems like the best way to go is flat bar starting out - once you progress, go round. Is that correct?

How about:

1) Is the round bar more 'discreet' then the flat?

2) Would'nt the round bar be more friendly if one were to have the bike land on their whiney?

3) Can the bike be 12'ed and still be made to go straight while scraping (with serious weight on the bar) with any 'flat bar' or is there a certain brand or type of flat bar, which can do that?

Yes, the round bars are alot more discreet....almost looks like factory. lol

2. no sharp edges to cut ya. i still have a scar on my leg from a flat bar.

3. i know from experience that flat bars can take a f4i and a 260lb rider across a parkin lot, scrapin full weight. lol
