Date Reviewed: June 12, 2001

Strengths:    right size, comfortable

Weaknesses:    none (well all barends limit my hand position a bit on the handlebars, but that´s just me)

Bottom Line:   
Pretty good, one of few CODA components that I like, right size and shape for good gripping, but do catch branches a bit ´cause they don´t bend very much inward (and catching branches can really hurt, trust me)
Rating defense:

Strengths:    The shape looks weird like it wouldn't work well, but they are the best I've used because of the shape it has.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Awesome for the price...coolest shape...perfect value rating for the money. They aren't very heavy, but they aren't the lightest either.

Date Reviewed: November 6, 2000

Strengths:    Bend, color, size

Weaknesses:    Scratch

Bottom Line:   
After a year riding with these, I don't have any regret. O.k. they scratch, but I don't think is a bad thing...

Also, the BE provide for an excelent place for hanging my cycle globes close to my bike (so I don't lose it)

Submitted by Eric Wrenn a Cross Country Rider from Farmington Hill, MI, USA

Date Reviewed: May 27, 2000

Strengths:    They are very strong, and the grip is very nice and keeps you on the ends. Color is nice, no cheap chrome crap.

Weaknesses:    They are "tree-hooks", they don't bend inside, so they are suceptible to catching any nearby limbs.

Bottom Line:   
Good Bar ends, not too big, not too small, but great for anything that requires barends (looks? riding uphill?). not too expensive either. i give it 5 blazin' roaches for appearance and grip.

Strengths:    
2 bend


Weaknesses:    
scratch easily


Bottom Line:   
The 2 bend makes for more positions than any other bar end i've tried. The finish gives good grip put scratches too easily. For $40 Canadian, these bar ends are excellent.

Submitted by Art a Cross-Country Rider from Adirondack Mtns., N.Y.

Date Reviewed: April 18, 1999

Bottom Line:   
These came stock on my C'dale Super V 900. But I needed a hi-rise handlebar and sold the bar-ends with the original handlebar. Man, do I miss the Paquito's! Because of the dual bends, you can get alot more positions on them than on other ends. The sandblasted finish gives you a great grip and the laser etched logo looks decent. I'm going to have to buy another pair to put on the hi-riser-- who cares what it looks like, it'll be comfortable and more versatile. Another kick-ass product from the boys in Bedford!
