It's good to see I'm not in the boat alone against the hater. I don't really see how someone could have a problem with these bar ends. They're not long enough to catch anything and if they did catch something whatever caught the bar end was going to catch the handlebar anyways. They provide a different hand position and I can get more leverage when using them to climb. I don't have any complaints with them.puffdc said:lol! theres always gotta be a hater...i too have never had any problems with my stubby's.
I can see your point. Like I've said I haven't had any problem with mine, but I have big hands so my hand rubs on my rubber bar end. I have recently started wearing gloves, but it's not much better. I like the bar ends for the added hand positions, but I also don't like it because my hands almost feel trapped b/c they're so big. I may take them off soon to see if I'm more comfortable without them. There's always something positive and negative about every part.NateHawk said:I personally don't like bar ends.
