    barends on answer hyperlite carbon flatbars ?

    As the title sais, i want to run a pair of titec Carbon 100 barends on my Answer hyperlite carbon handlebars. Is this ok ? I know other manufacturers warn of using bar ends and carbon bars etc... but is it ok to use them ? and does answer/manitou ok this ?

    I would not do it. Answer put warning all over the hyperlite bar that I have warning against the use of bar ends. However, you might try to find some of the aluminum plugs to put in the end of the bar that prevents it from being crushed which will allow you to use bar ends.

    Don't do it!!

    Carbon bars are reinforced at the clamp zones. If you put on bar ends, you're asking for trouble. Besides, who needs bar ends
