    “Great bar with style”

    The Good: Great color options. Come wide enough to trim to preferred length. Easy index marks to align shifters/brakes.

    The Bad: Heavy for AM use.

    Overall Review:

    The Fubar OSX is the perfect blend of performance and style all combined into one fantastic product. The paint and anodized options make sure you can find a color to fit any whip. The bar comes at quite wide but has markings on the ends for easy trimming. The gentle rise is comfortable. This bar is virtually bombproof, I have taken many spills with it, with no more than cosmetic damage. While the bar is billed more towards the FR crowd, it can be use for AM or even XC riding( at some weight penalty). In the hand, the bar feels stiff and inspires confidence. I highly recommend this product to the rider that wants to upgrade their cockpit with a little bit of flair.

    “Great colors. Paint chips easily”

    The Good: Great colors and quality bar. I have the Fuchsia paint series on my wife's DH bike and it pops.

    The Bad: The paint chips easily. The first one we received had a scratch. The 2nd one was good, but as we tightened the brakes/shifters it is easily scratches the pain. Make sure you have them in the right position before finally tightening. The first day on the lift, the bars got a bunch of chips and scratches.

    Overall Review:

    The look great and perform well. The paint is just not strong enough for DH riding. They will last the season, but most likely I will need to replace next season for cosmetic reasons.  We call Chromag and they don't have any touch up paint and suggests to better protect the surface.  We will most likely try to find a matching nail polish or automotive paint.  If Chromag had a touch up paint, it would greatly help. 

    “Awesome Bars”

    The Good: - Light - Look cool - Super strong - Wide but can be cut down if you want to

    The Bad: Price but i got mine for 50 bucks on sale at jenson usa.

    Overall Review:

    I use them on my Dirt Jump bike and they are fantastic. Some might say they are a little wide and low for dirt jumping but you can cut them down if you want. If you like lower bars. This is the one to get.

    “Look sick and feel good”

    The Good: Good colors, strong, light, and nothing bad to say.

    The Bad: Rise could be a bit more. More downhill bars than for dirt jumping or park.

    Overall Review:

    Strong, light, appealing to the eye, and feel great. Wouldn't recommend them for dirt jumping or park use due to the 780mm width and not much rise (more for downhill).

    “Chromag Fubar OSX Handlebar”

    The Good: strong and good looking

    The Bad: Its difficult to chose your favorite color there are so many to chose from!

    Overall Review:

    Very nice, strong bar. Looks great in the many colors it comes in. The whole thing just has a nice fell to it. If you purchase this bar i also recommend Chromag's basis grips

    “great handlebar”

    The Good: looks weight feel shape durability

    The Bad: price - but you pay for what you get

    Overall Review:

    had these for a while now and they are awesome! really suit me and got them because they felt nice on my friend's bike.

    they look amazing and come in various colours to suit any build. the finish is high quality and won't come off that easily compared to most bars. mine have a few marks from crashes as expected.

    they are also pretty light but are quite expensive, but in my opinion this is the bar to get if you want to ride anything from dirt jumps to DH

    “So this guy walks into the bar...”

    The Good: Shape (bend) Looks

    The Bad: Slightly uneven finish on the lime green ano I got, can see patches of lighter shades of green here and there (mostly around the logos) Pricey

    Overall Review: Great looking bar, great feeling bar, slightly disappointed to get a less than perfect finish (would have expected flawless quality control from the factory at this price point).

    “most awesome bar”

    The Good: looks really good in ocean blue anodised version, 760 width is probably best for slopestyle riding if you need wide bar. bar is very stiff even it is kinda wide.

    The Bad: none, except the price, one of the priciest bar i have seen, but still worth every penny.

    Overall Review: if someone is looking for a wide, good looking bar get it, you wont regret it.

    “Raised the Bar...!”

    The Good: * Perfect sweep * feel solid * look good..

    The Bad: * finish seems to scratch easily * Would like a wider option..

    Overall Review: Loving these bars, Salom and DH bike have these, thinking of putting them on my trail bike.. best bars I've found for a long time. ....

    “The right bar”

    The Good: The rise, bend and weight are all just right. This bar just feels comfortable and looks amazing in chrome

    The Bad: The price is not cheap and they can be hard to get because the word is out these are just a great product.

    Overall Review: Five stars!! This bar does everything asked of it. I have them on both of my DH bikes. My advise buy the Chrome one, it looks killer
