Thomson Titanium Worth $250?

(closed)
They're Thomson, yes! But truly is the ride quality going to be that noticeable?

assuming you mean the flat bar? it's built to flex, so if thats what you want than yes. But most people on this website are in dire need of the stiffest possible chainring bolts. so you decide.

My opinion is that 73cm titanium riser bars are stupid on a track bike being ridden on the street. We don't stock them for that same reason.

if you want them just buy them and decide for yourself. your own opinion is the only one that should really matter to you. people love to say certain things suck and other people think they totally rool. are they worth it? if you're willing to pay for it.

If you have to ask, it's not worth it. Titanium is for people who don't sweat dropping $250 on bars and just want the best ride quality and workmanship possible. Those bars look fantastic in person btw

Buy one secondhand. If you were crazy into it I think you'd have already bought it without asking. You might not save a big deal, but still it's better than 250... I want it, and want it bad. But there's a long way from wanting it bad and paying that much for it...

Who in the FUCK even needs 73cm wide bars for commuting? I've never understood all these retarded trends wether it's this or that or the other thing. Fuck. Just ride your bike and shut the fuck up.

A good wide bar is useful for a man who wants to impose his will more effectively on his bike. Stage yourself to exert your explosive power at just the right moment. Since using stiff 78cm bars w/ short stem I now decimate the trail. And by decimate I mean divide the trail features into groups of ten, then make each group select one that the remaining nine has to beat to death.

i dont get it guys, you're just wasting all that titanium when you chop the bars down to a tight 21.5cm. just buy cheaper Alu bars to cut, you will save tons of money!!!

wait, is it a straight bar??? cause then you could buy & cut into 3 properly sized handlebars!

so it is worth it because you could re-sell for $100 each and make $50, SCORE!!! Fuck ya'll are smart
