I know that different riders prefer different widths with some people liking long ones and others cutting 3 inches or whatever off.

So, what are the pros and cons? I was thinking wider would suit flatland more, and shorter bars would barspin faster. Anything else?

And please, if u R gOiNg 2 riply liek dis den pLz DoNt eVeN botha

Be careful, you CAN get them too narrow, F them up and have to throw them out. I got my first pair WAAAY to narrow, and I hardly could control the front end. I like mine stock, with about a 1/2" nipped off each end now.
