Strengths:    Affordable, Available, Look nice

Weaknesses:    Slick

Bottom Line:   
These are a nice product, but when riding bare handed (as I do 90% of the time) they can be slick. They aren't as light as some I have held, but bar ends are really a big area of concern for that now, are they?

Strengths:    Short, one piece design, cheap.

Weaknesses:    They might be a little bit narrow for some people.

Bottom Line:   
These are cheap, they are short and the are solid. If you are looking for some bar ends that aren't $50 and you just want a decent, functional bar end these are it. They seem a little bit narrow. I am fine with them but they aren't real beefy like some ends I've seen.

Strengths:    One piece, strong, light weight.

Weaknesses:    none

Bottom Line:   
Nice bar ends....strong 1 piece design.

I bought the Titec Shorties as an upgrade to the Giant bar ends that I originally bought. The Giant bar ends broke after one day of use...b/c they are 2 piece and the glue holding them together failed.

Go with a 1 piece design!

The Titec bar ends are nice.

FS 29er for shorties?

What are the options for complete bikes? I'd like to stay under 3K. 5'5, female we live in Moab so nothing spindly but she's not a hucker either...Read More »

Would You Buy Sram Rocket Shorties for $25?

I have never used grip shift before but have been tempted. I have the opportunity to purchase some Rocket Shorties for $25 that will apparently work with my XTR derailleurs. As far as I can tell I would save +/- 40 grams in the process. Any input would be greatly appreciated.Read More »

SRAM attack shorties question

So I noticed these guys on jenson (cheap $33 rear and $20 for the front) and they apparently weight 80g/pc at least that's what jenson says since sram's site says "n/a" for weight. Apparently these can be used for shimano too. Had no idea. I could save about 60g over my m970 triggers. Wondering ... Read More »

My new Ergon GP1 shorties

I have been riding regularly since rougly 1996. My hands have always hurt into my wrists. I initially attributed it to the fact that I was overweight. I was pushing 240 pounds by the time I was 15, but I am 6'4 so it wasn't like i was obese, just heavier than I should have been. Well, about 2 year ... Read More »

Anyone running the Ergon grips with SRAM shorty grip shifts? Was thinking of trying them but not sure what length ergons to try. I see they make a model that is grip shift friendly but I cant find a length for them.Read More »
