• I've received emails and PM's asking me about "Group Buys" and promotions.

    A Group Buy here on SnoWestOnline.com would be a situation where a normal member (non vendor or mfg) personally collects orders from other members. That member then uses those orders to negotiate a better price with the Vendor/Mfg for HIS/HER "Group" of buyers.

    Here is an example of a viable "Group Buy"


    A promotion that has the words "Group Buy" in the title is still a promotion, and from the rules that were handed down to me by Harris Publications is that non-advertisers cannot run promotions or open sales programs on the forums outside of the swapmeet.

    If a members wants to become a group buy manager, maintain a thread and collect the funds and negotiate a group buy... as a member, you are welcome to do that as long as you are not attached to the business of the vendor or Mfg.

    If you are a vendor/MFG and you want to offer an EXCLUSIVE "SnoWestOnline ONLY" promotion that is exclusive to snowest readers, please contact me and you'll be able to put it up in the Polaris forums.

    Also, before any vendors/mfgs get all "riled up" over this know that the moderators are strictly volunteers and do not receive a dime from any advertising $$ spent on this site.

    As ALWAYS, since DAY ONE of me becoming a moderator, I have pioneered, supported and encouraged vendors and mfgs in getting the word out to our readers with "New Product Announcements.

    Have a great season.

    From this point on, all vendors/mfg's promoting Pre-Season tiered sales programs, in the Polaris Forums, that are not paid advertisers will be appropriately moved to the swapmeet section of the forums.


bmx bars on 7/8 clamp?

Title says it all...I got some nice fly bmx racing bars. Clamp is 22.2mm which is .87399in and 7/8 is .875in. Seems like it can be done...any thoughts, opinions. I am relatively new to the sled game so no flaming :beer;

Start out with physically putting them in the clamp. If it tights down well let it rip, otherwise you could maybe shave a tiny amount off the flat clamp surface so the halves don't touch before the bars are tight.

You should be able to clamp them okay. I did the same thing awhile back with some pro-tapers and hated them. It was just the wrong rake width etc. I went back to snow bars within the season and it was night and day. Give it a try and see what your prefrence is. Good luck. Check western Power. They have bars and mounts for pretty cheap.

What material are these made of?

What is the wall thickness?

Is the end of the bar betweenthe crossbar bend and the end of the grip long enough for the controls to fit?

I'd be worried if they are heavy duty enough... big difference between a BMX and 500 lb sled with 100+ HP... Just a thought.
I was thinking about inertia and weather the bars would stand up. Honestly, they can handle 30-40 foot gaps on the bmx to dirt with some nasty nose cases, lol.

I agree though about the room for controls, this was a late night thought while I was stairing at my bmx while surfing snowest :beer;. My bar width is 26" on the fly's and they are cromo.
