    Don't know what they are or where to get them , but you can accomplish the same thing by mounting "ski bend" bar ends on the inboard side .

    These are a versatile add-on.

    - You can add mirrors to them if you're racing and expect to be near the front to keep an eye on the competition.

    - You can use them as extra leverage when either going uphill or downhill. In lieu of the "reverse" grip you can see this rider using in the picture.

    - Fancier ones have a cap on them and can be filled with any beverage. Most often one side is filled with rum and the other with Coke for pre/mid/after ride cocktails.

    - They can be quickly taken off and used as billy clubs for out-of-hand hikers, horse riders, mountain lions, bears and just about anything that gets in the way of your ride groove.

    - Most likely these were first gear shifters put out by Shimano. They didn't do very well because of their size and the weight revolution started by "weight weenies".
    I may be slow...but I can't go far

    Is this a desire for function or fashion?

    They look like they are for hot and cold water.
    15mm is a second-best solution to a problem that was already solved.

    Yeah - but not since my bike had 20" blue tires and a coaster brake!
    I'm beginning to overcome my "momentum issues" but even that is happening slowly.

    look into dirtbiking.. they use them there too.. but it's just for flip variations.. you dont even really need then on a bicycle, none of the new pros use em

    plus they look pretty daft
