Anyone have any OG CW Expert bars?
« on: August 04, 2018, 07:56 AM »
Got an ongoing issue with the biggest clown I've ever come across on eBay. Does anyone have an OG set of CW Expert bars that they wouldn't mind taking a measurement off for me please? I know what they are supposed to be according to the ads, but we all know that 80's BMX weren't always made to be mm perfect.

Cheers boys and girls

Marky, i'm taking a set to MK to sell. I loved my CW's back in the day, rode with them a lot. I'll get some measurements if you want?

Thanks a lot for that guys.

This may seem like a stupid question, but is this typically how the rise is measured (i.e centre of stem tube to underside of upper tube rather than centre to centre?)

As an Engineer I would always measure centre to centre but then this would put the rise at around 7.5" judging by your tape in the second photo (which matches what I have exactly).

I think the correct way is centre to centre. But if you look online, some are measuring as we have and some are putting the bars on a flat surface and measuring to the outermost tip of the grip position. Others are measuring to the highest point of the bars. I have a few sets of genuine bars (taken off CW completes anyway) and they comply if I measure as I have. Ive got Pro, Expert (standard) and cruiser bars here.
