Strength:

They clamp on very securely and are super solid feeling despite there light weight.

Weakness:

Like all metal bar ends, you may need to grip tape them. Not really a weakness though.

Really good short little bar ends. More than enough for most people.

Strength:

Super light (~115 grams), durable finish, looks cool and it's functional

Weakness:

Not suitable for people with big hands since it's a pretty short bar end

If you want a small and lightweight bar end at budget price, this deal cannot be beat!

Strength:

Good for people with small hands, light, cheap, feel right in your hands, durable

Weakness:

Wouldn't work for people with huge hands.

They are a great set of barends. I have crashed A LOT with these barends and I race in the Georgia State Series with them. I sprint finish almost every race and they help a lot. They work best when set and an about 20 degree angle to the ground, not stickin up. Very good barends that don't get hooked up on trees on narrow trails.

I hate those huge OEM barends and these were just right for my hands; I am 16 and race Junior II Mens' Category

Strength:

Just the right size
Durable finish

Great bar ends for racing - just the right size for climbing, fits your entire hand with no excess. Finish is very durable - after three seasons, still have about 80% of original. For trail riding, I like a bar end with a little curve to it, to deflect branches, fenceposts, etc. For racing, though, these Micros are perfect.

Strength:

Size, looks, weight

Weakness:

Plugs (see below)

After riding for a few years, I'm convinced that the size of a rider's barends is inversely proprtional to his skill level and experience. Those of us who ride know when to stop. Nothing looks more ridiculous that a nice bike with a set of bar ends that like the steer horns on Boss Hawg's Cadillac!

I like these because I use the bar and the bar end for hand placement on climbs, therfore, I don't need much length. And, it's much harder to hook these on a sapling tree.

My only complaint is that the plastic plugs both had a sharp piece of excess material on them. It was really annoying at first. But with a sharp knife, you can take care of it without much trouble.

Strength:

Looks great
Light weight
Durable
Inexpensive
Comfortable
Recessed mounting bolt
Just the right length

Weakness:

One of the mounting bolts felt slightly unfinished and uncomfortable in the hand initially, but after some use has worn down and is no longer a problem.

These bar ends look and function great when set up right. They are just the right length. I have always preferred the look of a well set-up set of bar ends on a hardtail. They make the bike look racy.

Strength:

Good length, lightweight, working since I bought them with no tinkering required.

Weakness:

None.

Great barends. They're just long enough and they're great for long climbs.
