Thinking about picking up a new pair of BMX bars for your bike, but you aren’t sure what all the things like butting, heat-treating, weight and everything really means? Well, Brant Moore has put together a video giving an in-depth explanation of BMX handlebar tubing. This video compares a few sets of bars that look similar, but are in fact very different. This covers the tubing aspect, but you are curious about geometry, then we suggest you check out our BMX Handlebar Geometry Guide that will help you figure out rise, width, backsweep, upsweep and more. You can also check out our BMX Tubing Terminology post that covers more of the tubing details for things like frames and forks as well!

From butted tubing, to crossbar differences, to heat treating, and other aspects of handlebar tubing; there is a lot to learn or be aware of when purchasing a set of bars for your BMX bike!” – Brant Moore
