Strengths:    
Looks nice
Not heavy
$15


Weaknesses:    
None so far


Bottom Line:   
I am using the Oversize Lite model, with welded bends. These are comfortable: the angle of the bend and the large diameter fit my hands very well. They are pretty cool looking, if you don't insist upon having a big-name brand. The surface is slightly rough, which helps grip, but is easier on the hands than knurling. What else can I say? They are inexpensive, and they work.

Strengths:    
look sweet
stay on the bars


Weaknesses:    
none


Bottom Line:   
Bottom line is, these things are barends. i have yet to find a set that vastly outperforms any other. i love people who spend 50 bucks on little carbon nubbies to save a gram of weight. they keep our economy going. they really do.

I currently have Ergon grips with Cane Creek bar ends mounted on a 25.4mm Salsa Al riser mtb handlebar. Just outside the stem clamp area the han ... Read More »

orgin8 drop barends

I picked up a set of the orgin8 dropends I installed them on my flat bars and have ridden with them for a couple weeks, have to say the extra position is a nice addition to the grips and barends I already have, well worth the $ 20 spot. give them a try if you have ever though about drops.

Wider vs. Barends

I've done a search on here and read a couple threads already but nothing covered my dilemma one hundred percent. Was running a Ritchey 580mm flat bar. Went back to my 660 1.5" riser bar (Sette cheapo stuff that looses its paint if a moth lands on it). On a short commute uphill the riser bar was more ... Read More »

KCNC Barends

Well, I got a few late Christmas presents yesterday (from myself). My new barends arrived. I realize that the vast majority of you folks out there don't use barends and prefer wider bars but I guess I am just old school. In any case I have been running Cane Creeks for years now and the ergonomics ... Read More »
