Strengths:    Long bar end. Improves riding posture when set up high.

Weaknesses:    None so far. With my setup (90 degress from ground level and slightly bent forward)it makes jumping harder.

Bottom Line:   
I LOVE the extra long design. I set mine at 90 degrees then just slightly bend them forward so I don't kill my back on the flat parts (I can sit upright). I noticed a reviewer here put that the bar ends are like Bon Jovi and are Slippery When Wet. I agree they are also hot when sunny. I eliminated these problems by wrapping them with roadbike cork wrap. An easy way to kill $20.00 and like it.

P.S. What am I supposed to do with those super short nub-bar ends? Please Email me, because the bike shops around here tell me it is a personal preference.

Bottom Line:   

I own the extended version and, for the price, these are great bar ends. They've really improved my shitty bike's climbing.

Bottom Line:   

These barends are fairly light and are strong, there short length is also well suited to my riding style. A proble associated with these barends is that when wet they can become quite slippery.

Bar end lights / blinkers

I just bought bar end lights to enhance my night riding visibility. I saw these when I rode with a friend who has a set during one night ride. I was amazed at the complete profile of the bike can be seen even from afar. It's like navigational lights for boats. Drivers can see exactly where the bike' ... Read More »

Can anyone help me? I'm struggling to fit some used Dura-Ace 9 speed bar end shifters to a set of Paul Thumbies. I suspect the lever boss cover (part number 643 4300) has been altered, which is preventing the cable lining up properly with the fitting in the thumbie mount. Can anyone tell me exact ...
