    i was looking and couldn't find any either.

    I guess stick with 3-3.5" new school DJ bars (NSBikes, etc) or phone Solid about custom ones. Maybe S&M will do custom bars even. Or get S&M 5" cruisers and run a drop stem if you like the S&M bends.

    Did S&M stop making the 5" ? All I see are 5.75" cruiser bars:


    Our most popular sized cruiser bar made from straight guage .065" cro-mo for a little more strength than the super light 5.75" Race version. Both bars have the same dimensions, the Slam is better for larger/stronger riders or guys that do more than race on their cruisers.

    Available in Black and Chrome

    Width: 27"
    Rise: 5.75"
    Sweep: 10 degree
    Up Sweep: 2.5 degree

    I don't like the way those wingbars feel. The up-sweep is awkward.

    I think Bill R @ Supercross made the 4" and 2.5" a few years ago and they might be gone. The 2.5's are just like the Atomlab Trailkings.

    I'm looking for a cruiser bar that is 29" wide. Im riding a 28 inch wide bar now but would like to go just a little wider. While searching, i found this site

    http://immortisbmx.bigcartel.com/

    and also stumbled onto this ridemonkey thread.

    anyone have any experience with these guys. The Faust bars look good but i dont like only 7 degrees of back sweep.

    the bucket bars look good if you're into a 4-piece set.

    but both bars have only a 4 inch rise which is what cmc stated at the start of this thread so thought I'd post up here.

    a little experiment... swapped out Nemesis 3.25" weezy's (1/2" spacered up), for IMMORTIS 4" rise 4 piece, with OG KINK top loader flipped down and slammed, with 80mm travel Manitou Gold Label.... shape is reminiscent of hacked down S&M Castillo bars which are f-ing classic --i like 'em. we'll see....

    I have bought several bars from Seth at Immortis. They are tough as hell! I had been trying to get the "Faust" bar made for a long time to satisfy my demand for a very strong, wide, flat and slightly tall bar for 26" bikes. I am 6'3" with wide shoulders so I prefer less backsweep and a flatter feel. I had this Atomlab Trailpimp for several years before the Immortis bars brought the whole build together... with Seth's help, this bike turned out better than I could have ever imagined! All the other bars I tried were either too narrow or too low etc... these bars made it happen for me!



    He also makes 8" rise bars with 32" width (so you can custom cut to your own desired width)... and 6" rise "Bucket Bars" are in the works now!

    Cool, they look pretty good too. This something I am in need of as well. What is the width, backsweep/upsweep?

    A 2 piece w/ those dimensions would be perfect for me.

    Hey guys!!

    Thanks for the excitement for our stuff. I have more 4" rise Bucket Bars in production as well as a 6" rise Bucket Bar. These should be done soon... not sure of the exact date yet though.

    i'm 6'4 and ride an eastern thunderbid with a 21.9 inch top tube,the bike is made to be small and have a bmx feel,but i just picked up a set of supercross bars with a 6' rise,since i have a 2.5 rise already with a .75 inch spacer on the stem,so i figure i can remove the spacer and have 5.25 rise or run an inverted stem setup if its still too high,i'll post some pics next week

    keep in mind that this bike is pretty much meant to have a bmx feel,comes with a 21.9 top tube,bmx stem and 2.75 rise stock,but i am just way to tall for the stock short bars,so i realy moved them up about 2.5 inches with almost no upsweep which which feels great,but you guys let me know if you think i should go a little lower,when i stand on the ground the bars come up to about the sack,pretty much where the shaft enter my pelvis,is that good?

    measure the end of your bars to the ground; measure the center of the BB to the ground. Subtract. Then compare that number to your other bikes and friend's bikes to see how much different this set-up is.

    As far as whether it's "right": that is up to you. Does it feel good? Does it hop right and manual right?

    I'm 6' and can't say I've ever tried a set-up that was way too high in front, so I'm not sure how it would feel. I'm guessing it would loop out too easily on manuals and bunnyhops would feel wrong as the front end came up too fast and/or you couldn't get the right pull on the bars.

    Hope this helps.

    i've noticed that sometimes extra-tall setups can feel good just cruising on the street, bunnyhopping etc. but then you realize is too tall when you start riding it on a bmx track, pump track, dirt jumps....

    like rpet said, you need it in that middle area--where your bars are low enough to have some leverage to pull back on manualing through rollers and not loop out too easily, and low enough to be stable in the air and nosedive properly . . . but tall enough where you're not killing your lower back.

    i can't really say what would be right for you, you'll just have to try some different setups and see what you like the best.... but i would guess your setup is a little too tall--i think the 4" rise Immortis bars would work really well for you, or put some spacers under some 3" rise bars....

    About to get my first 26" jumpbike and am preparing for the possibility that the bars will be too low (I'm 6'6"). I have a 5" option (bars off my cruiser or other cruiser bars), a couple of 3" options (Atomlab General Issue 1pc. and DMR Wingbar 2pc.) Looking for a 4" option, would like to stay 22.2 clamp. I see the Immortis 4pc above but would also like a 1pc option. I like the NS Bikes District 1pc. bars, they look good, but does anybody know where to find them? Their website lists BTI as their US distributor but they don't have the District bar listed.

    Hey! I've seen that bike before :D

    Actually, I copied you when I saw your bike on this thread. The stem in the picture broke last summer and I have since replaced it w/ a black inverted Snap Products top loader. Otherwise it's the same and these bars are holding up fine.

    I think I read somewhere that the NS District 4"s are not really 4" in the way that bmx'ers measure (center of bottom tube to center of grip tube); rather they are 4" from lowest point to highest point. So that would make them 7/8" lower or 3.125". Don't know if that's true or not, you may want to check.


    Heh heh, yeah, how come your Mob looks sweeter than mine then !? The rigids look rad with the bars for sure.

    I didn't know if yours were S&M or Immortis. I've met the guy Seth from Immortis a couple of times since then, and he's stoked about 26" riders using them.

    Pic from his booth at the Texas Vintage BMX Roundup at Empire a few weeks ago--he has them in raw as well:

    Just came across these. 4" rise, 2piece version of the Nemesis weezy bars. I still have the 3" version that were pretty cool. Hadn't heard much from Nemesis in the mtb world lately...(!)

    I'm stoked that Matt at STOUT Bikes has gotten into 4 piece 4" rise bars.
