Why add the extra weight, get a weaker bar, and run the risk of something like that snapping? why not just buy wider bars to begin with? They will be stronger, lighter and wont be fabbed up in some guys garage. Deity is going to have their Dirty 30's out in a week or so, just go for something like that, unless you need your teeth rearranged
Some DH pros (cant remember who it was at the moment) actually ride with extended bars for added stability at high speeds. Dont bash the guy for doing what hes doing. If you dont need bar extensions then dont get them but they're legit.
I just extended my easton carbon DH bars by about 10 inches! I used to just run my ODI lock on grips wide and only bolt the inside clamp. It was sick. It added some much needed torque and shock absorbtion to my Fox 40. So anyways i was wondering if you could run bar ends on these new extensions because thats the only downside to my own newest DH bar extension- I can't run bar ends. If anyone wants to check out what I have made- just imagine a cut off quill stem @ the end of your bar. Check em out @ www.uraturdinc.com
See ya at Nationals.
Dude, those look clean. While I would prefer to just buy a bar with the proper width, if I couldnt find something with the proper sweep or rise in a wide bar and had a bar I really liked just wanted wider, I'd send em to you....NICE
