    Default handlebars for a kids bike

    So my nephews (13 & 11) got crf150f and crf80f. Both have stock bars, one is bent, the other wants to add bark busters that he got with bike but they dont fit on the stock steel bars.

    Planning to get them aluminum bars. Probably a off brand/cheaper like tusk.

    When getting new bars, is there a reason to stick with a small bike bar bend? Or is getting a "cr bend" acceptable and workable on a small bike?
    Current bikes:
    2012 250xcw & 1996 cr250.

    Kids machines: xr50, 1987 lt80, 2011 mini razr

    I see a lot of pro riders run mini bars at 26", don't really need bark busters that narrow.
