    Durable bar ends

    My kids drops his bike on the handle bars and the bars are getting tore up.

    Are there any good kid specific bar ends that you guys use?

    Cane Creek Ergo bar ends are like Giant rubber bumpers. You could try using those. I haven't actually put any on his bike though.

    The easiest way (and not trying to be a smart a$$) is to teach them not to drop their bike. If that's not realistic, you can buy clamp on grips which use plastic endcaps with the grip portion slipping over the end of the bars. You may have to change bar plugs every once in a while but it won't be as often as rubber ended grips.

    Slip on grips will always get trashed, lock on grips are better - ideally with ali end caps. Superstar also sell the end caps separately here
