Anyone try the new wider bars and if so what are the pros and cons?
I just bought a renthal fat bar set up plus apex stem but in 31.8mm am I missing out?

This was a test for Spank Vibrocore bars but should have some good info why you don't want 35mm. https://www.singletracks.com/mtb-gear/spank-industries-green-filler-carbon-killer-review-oozy-trail-760-vibrocore-bar/

"35mm bar clamp (alloy): 35mm alloy bars actually damp the least in the resonance range while also resonating at lower frequencies — the worst performers."

If you're paranoid about snapping your bars than I would think 35mm are stronger. Or if you just want something super stiff.

You're replying to a post from 2017, the guy might be dead now for all you know.

(Likely because his 31.8mm bars snapped)

Thanks for the heads up. I blame MTBCamerongoldy Smile

If you file the stem down yes, should you take a file to your stem, probably not. But it’s always an option"

That kinda puts you both in the same thinking bracket.
