    600-650mm carbon bar W/ bar ends?

    Hey guys,
    Are there any 600-650ish mm carbon bars capable of taking ends?

    So far the only company that I have found is Ritchey but their widest carbon bar end compatible bar is 580mm.

    What are some of the other products to look at?

    Thanks,

    Wide bars + bar ends = catching on trees. I like bar ends but said goodbye when I found out how nice 26"+ bars feel.

    Yeah i hear that. I have 580mms with bar ends on my bike now and i have more than enough leverage on the bar ends when climbing. On the grips i hardly have enough leverage to mash up hills smoothly. Ideally, i would want a 620mm w/ ends

    Ill prob stick with Ritchey. I like all their stuff I own. (except for the ritchey 2 bolt clamping system) F that noise.
