So disappointed they chose to change the box style  :huh: It was actually a nice looking bar  :huh:

I'm bowing out on these.. The wait was for nothing   :angry:

If you like the prototypes, just have PIR make you some!

I actually think they made a good call changing them.

The final design will appeal to a larger number of people, which is the aim of the game.

Since the original prototypes were made by PIR just contact them and order a set. The St.Martin ones are being made by S&M, so price is probably similar anyway.

So I guess it's worth asking, will the S&M built version of these also break in the middle of flatland tricks? They were super comfortable, but maybe the design was just too weak if Ody's 41 Thermal processing wasn't enough. I think they should probably address that concern.

I heard of a few people breaking Odyssey Chase bars but I think that must have been a bad batch or two because as far as I know the problem was addressed.

I've had mine since 2010/11, given them hell and they're still fine.

I'm not sure. I gave my friend my old bars which I thought were v2s and watched him break em. No idea how many riders really had that issue but it was certainly discussed a lot. I wish them luck because I do like the way they feel. If they had made the crossbar a little higher I would feel more comfortable purchasing. I feel like maybe sometimes I shouldn't negatively comment on designs that are already in production especially when my comment may be unsubstantiated or spread FUD where it isn't warranted.

Odyssey fixed the breaking problem with the V2.
I don't remember people breaking the V2's.

Quote from: Odyssey
Chase’s new V2 bars have been redesigned using slightly thicker tubing and a larger bending radius to greatly improve durability without affecting the bar’s proven shape and geometry

out~riding, I recognize the spot in that picture, it's the Saint-Honoré spot in paris (opera)  -_-
I was in Paris in 2004 and I loved that spot, marble floor and a roof so you can ride in the rain.

Thanks to Christoph Dassie who hosted me and rode with me and thanks to Manu Massabova who rode with me every day.

You guys are the best!  :mellow:
