    Anyone successfully using bar ends on a 17deg Salsa bar?
    If yes, details and/or pictures would be appreciated. I'm interested in shorter bar ends that won't be at a funny angle with the sweep of the bar. Looking for another hand position.

    Many thanks.

    Never tried it , but.....
    back in the days Ritchey made a barend with a greater inward angle for use on bars with greater "back" angle , U might wanna google/locate such a pair.
    Cheers

    Have a look at the Cane Creek Ergo bar-ends. Being short, and mounting both fore and aft of the bar, any angle is less obvious. It will also put them at a very usable angle.

    I just found this thread: http://forums.mtbr.com/singlespeed/b...rs-683177.html

    Looks like the Ritcheys might be the way to go.

    I posted it in the earlier referenced thread, but the Salsa 17* sweep bar with the Ritchey "ergo" bar ends is one my favorite combos:

    You think they'd work okay with a 25 degree bar? Have been thinking I might try it...

    I use Ergon GP3 grips on my 17 bars. I think they work great. The extra hand position is really nice for the longer days in the saddle.

    This is the best pic I have of the setup.

    I've been running a Surly Torsion bar (15* sweep) with CC Ergo bar ends for a while now and love it. I don't have a picture of the setup, but the barends point forward just fine.

    I think the Ritchey bar ends are swept at 35*, so they would at least still point inwards a bit with this bar.
