 B)  Nice. I like the look of these.


Edit: I really like the looks of these plus they have made them a bit taller and wider than previous years. I am very excited, will probably buy a pair as soon as I have the funds. Currently have the version 2 bars and have no complaints except that I wish they were a little taller and little wider. This version 4 fixes both issues since version 2 are 7.9" tall and 23.5" wide.


Excellent. Can't wait.

You can also ask Marton for your custom geometry... He kindly made a bar for me and it turned out great!

Awesome! Although I'm not quite ready to order custom parts yet, one day.


Do we know if these will be available from flatlandfuel or direct from Marton?


And forgive the ignorance but who is Marton? I think I have seen the name a few times over the years but I don't remember...


Edit: OK never mind, I did a google search and it makes sense that you are talking about Marton Szilagyi of OG Bicycles.

Hi, yes I am talking about the one and only Marton Szilagyi :)You can order the Caramel 4 bar and custom ones via Four Pegs in Vienna for example:https://fourpegsbmx.com/collections/bmx-handlebars-lenker?page=3And please take some time to check one of his latest video:https://vimeo.com/305925387At the end of the video you can also see examples of his bars and his mail contact.

Thanks daddycool, I enjoyed the video. Awesome riding both the 1998 stuff and the recent stuff. Those bars in blue color look extra nice too.

will be interesting to know what are the custom fees for something like this coming from Europe to US now there is Trump there, can you update us about that? :)
 
In case you don't go that way, you might see what's up with the US custom builders like Standard, London Bikes, We Bicycles (and there are other I don't recall now)

Hi Revig, good question about the customs...
But even before Mr Trump I had to pay about 40 when I ordered two London bars from the U. S. to Germany in 2013...
But when I ordered from Flatlandfuel I never had to pay customs. I don't know why I had to pay one time and not the other time...
