Some thoughts on 4 piece bars.

http://imeugene.com/post/139801136412/v-a-l-u-e-its-a-weird-thing-what-is-a

I find it very strange that even flatlanders don't ride sub 8 bars anymore and they like it wide! So bizarre.

Interesting points.   What do you think is the difference (if any) between "intrinsic value" and "subjective value"? 

I think Sean Burns can also be credited with bringing 4 piece bars back.

It was a good read dude

Thank you!

I want to say subjective is based on someone own personal values compared to intrinsic which is something that is widely felt.

Apple has intrinsic value cause of the whole cult they build around their products. Subjective would be more like I like Apple cause it was my first computer. I don't know if there is cutting point from when subjective becomes intrinsic or if it's just an overlap like all rectangles are cubes but not all cubes are rectangles type thing.

Could have been Jerry Galley, Scott Malyon, Stuart King or one of those boys, everyone seemed to have them for a while.

Might be thinking of Marv too, those lot I listed above are maybe late 90's.

Yep.

the scerbars feel the closest to regular modern 2piece bars, and I think most of the new giant copies look ridiculous, but I cringe reading the drama stuff and feel like bob should just let it slide and then re-re-re-release 'his own' again in 12 years

Cubes and rectangles are not the same at all

Are those the Hoffman bars? Man I would love another kneesaver style bar! Shame the hoffmans are a tad low at 8" (I am very tall).

Might get the Quest bar, not as nice but 9"

yeah they're 2015 hoffmans. 

I like those quests... never seen them before. I think george made some that looked kind of like those at one point?  They do look a lot like bars in dmfbmx2, which was the reason I got the hoffmans - because they looked like modern mirra bars, and I figured since they were hoffman they were technically modern pre-mirras...   I feel weird about them now. also, not enough sweep for my liking

I remember being excited to hear that Odyssey was gonna make a 4 piece bar but then those 4x4 came out and they are the ugliest 4 piece bars ever made in my opinion.



I think as far as big 4 piece bars go the T1 and Animals look the best. I'm riding the T1 right now and could not be anymore happier.
