    Recommendations on Bar Ends?

    Hey guys,

    Does anyone use bar ends anymore? I was thinking of getting a set (carbon fiber?) to make climbing easier and just to have another hand rest position. I'm not looking for ones with the long handles, but prefer the short stumpy looking ones. I've seen mostly ones where they are attached using a screw, but I thought i've seen ones where they are more integrated with the handle bar? Recommendations?

    Any suggestions or recommendations would be great appreciated. Thanks!

    i use cane creek ergo 2's. Very comfortable and they are molded to the shape of a palm. check them out at your LBS, if you like them get them off ebay for 20 less than LBS

    Cannondale Coda XYZ bar ends were the best bar ends ever made. They fit my hand perfectly. I still use them on my hardtails.

    Still see them on Ebay now and then.

    I have a couple bars from these guys and they're really nice....presume the bar ends would be similar (excellent) quality.

    I use the Forte (Performance Bike Shops) carbon bar ends. They are stubby which is good and have an allen head to fix onto the bar...
