Strengths:    -It looks good
-Very strong
-Cheap


Weaknesses:    -Tends to be slippery if wet

Bottom Line:   
This is a great product cause its cheap, strong and looks good. How strong is it? Very strong, Why? Cause I fell at Penang Hill and the bike went sliding sideways and the barend only leave scratches. Another accident is where it was raining and I quickly brake cause a car is coming and I fell cause the Tyres slide, and lose control. After I stand up I checked my bike, My pedal is completely busted but my barend is perfectly ok. And my last incident is where I tried to do a wheelie and I fell, damn that Injury was bad but again my Zoom Bar end only end up with more scratches. I think the only way this Bar end will be broken if I fell A LOT of times until the Aluminium Broken off.

Strengths:    Cost
Ability to last a long time and only


Weaknesses:    slippery when wet

Bottom Line:   
Theese were very cheap and have lasted me over three years. They were slightly slippery when they were wet. I dont see why people need to buy expensive bar ends, as theese do what bar ends are supposed to, and probably only weigh a little more

Strengths:    Good length and multiple positions. Rubber does help hands. Strong without much flex. Well-built product compared to other's I've seen. Pretty light!

Weaknesses:    Smooth finish sometimes doesn't provide enough grip, but not a huge deal if you wear gloves.

Bottom Line:   
These came with my Novarra Arriba bike quite a few years ago and they have been nothing but awesome. I love these things. They look, feel, and perform great.

Strengths:    + stiffness
+ price


Weaknesses:    - none

Bottom Line:   
Zoom bar ends do their work. Once I had an accident during wintertime. I was riding fast on icy trail and slipped. My bike crashed on the bar end, bending it inward. Despite my efforts I could not straighten Zoom in the wood and have done it in workshop with a little help from my tools. Since then (February 1999) I still use the same pair of Zooms and they have not fail anymore. I would recommend them for anyone.

Strengths:    
*Light
*Cheap
*Bolts don't show any signs of stripping
*Multi-positions


Weaknesses:    
*Too long for some people


Bottom Line:   
I don't use these anymore because I've decided I don't like bar ends. I do like these though, and they came on my bike. I think you can get them for about $15 most places.

Submitted by Aaron a Cross-Country Rider from Santiago, Chile

Date Reviewed: March 30, 1999

Strengths:    
Super ergonomic design
Lightweight
Rubber covering - easier on the hands
Short - don't hit car mirrors when I ride between lanes


Weaknesses:    
None apparently.


Bottom Line:   
The price is what I paid, so it's not absolute. The bar ends are great. Very impressed with their ergonomics. They have a very solid feel for out of the saddle climbing or to simply allow a more comfortable riding position. Highly recommended.

Cane Creek Ergo bar ends won't "lock"

Hi, I have some cane creek grips that mate to cane creek Ergo bar ends. I recently noticed one of the bar ends won't lock on to the grips (little tabs don't stay in the slots in the bar ends if that makes sense). Even when I tighten down the bolt they still slip out.
