Those are hideous. Why even have a two piece bar with that crossbar? It's pointless.

When I was a kid this style bar was called a V bar.  They were the must have.  They look nice and gives you a bit more clearance over a straight bar design and they even come 9".  Choices are good be glad there are some.

That's why I had london bikes make me a custom bar, because the choices are all sh*t.

I think those bars and the name "Candybars" (old school trick) is appealing to a completely different market segment than actual hardcore flatlanders. They're for the bike builders and other guys getting back into BMX going for the retro look that seems to be coming back (Haro Retro line).

For Flatland, just take a look at the Fenix bars that had the same crossbar bend. I've hardly seen anyone ride them and they are still on sale at FF.
