GT Bars?
« on: February 11, 2016, 08:25:22 PM »
Anybody know when those remakes of the classic GT bars are coming out? Wanting a new 4 piece bar but I don't want to get one and have the GT's show up right afterwards.

Why do we get pissy about people ripping off 4 piece bars but we insist that all 2 piece have to more or less look exactly the same?

Hah! Scerbo didn't do himself any favors when he talked about the dispute with animal and "his" bars.

$cerbo : The reason the bars got discontinued was that Animal wanted to do the bigger ones and they wanted to use my name on them and I said no, so when they got made I told them they can not do mine anymore, I thought the bars were fine the way they were. Just some bullshit really. I would like to remake them as Skapegoat bars but I don’t really want to go that route and be a bike company because it never seems to work out well for people who choose that. Obviously the politics with me and Animal goes a lot deeper than that but that is the simplest way I can explain it.

You can't deny that the only reason anyone rocks 4-piece bars today is directly because of Bob. The Bob bars were the only 4-piece bars around for a while and they weren't exactly the coveted item they are today. 4-piece style was dead for about a decade or so until the last few years.

I'll say that the reason people have 4 piece currently isn't because of him. Thankfully most look better than those stupid things, save the T1.

It's cause this generation of pros grew up on Bob's Animal videos. Honestly I can't think of another pro outside of Ryan Worcester and Marv in Nang that had any non-2 piece bars in that era. 6-piece bars has existed at one point

I started riding 5 years ago, saw an ad of Björn Elvering doing a handrail with some 4pc bars, I had no idea what they were called. When I found the WTP Everlites only I immediately bought them. Been riding 4pc ever since.

GT also influenced 4 piece bars with the Powerlite bar, which S&M Brian Castillo (and Dave Parrick) rode in BMX Inferno https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pgT7RFjVqaE, before Brian Castillo got his own bar made.

90's Powerlite 4-piece
