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.

How to go 1x11 (42t) with bar end shifter?

I'm looking to swap out a 2x10 on my dirt drop 29er with 1x11 (10-42t) and want to go with a single bar-end shifter. I'm not well-versed on cable pull of the new 11 speed groups, but could I throw on an 11 sp MTB RD & cassette (i.e. SRAM X1) and a 11 speed bar end shifter to make it work? If not, ho ...

Does anyone know where this style is found? The pot headed kid in the LBS looked at me if I was stupid ... Read More »

The bike I have is a 2013 Salsa Fargo 3. It already has a set of 9 speed Microshift bar end shifters. Will this setup work? T ... Read More »
