    Anyone shimmed a Ergon bar ends

    I ask here because I imagine most singlespeeder to be using bar ends over most others. Not a knock but I think we just appreciate the extra leverage on the climbs.

    But on to these bar ends. I hate the grips but like the ends they feel great on the hands, so has anyone put some sort of plastic shim in there to fit a set of bars or am I asking for trouble?
    Mr. Krabs: Is it true, Squidward? Is it hilarious?

    Never done this before, but I suppose a bit of PVC piping should work.

    I haven't done this either but you could maybe look at cutting off that portion of the grip and using it as the shim?

    Cut up an old milk carton and make a shim w/ strips of the plastic to the thickness you need? I'm sure it could be done and I thought about the same thing but even though they are heavier, I am quite pleased with my Cane Creek barends. Very ergonomic and give a great platform that supports the entire hand compared to the others out there.

    The Ergon barends with the closed ends (2010 barend models and newer) will mount to any mtb handlebar without the Ergon grip. Only place to buy Ergon barends without the grip bodies is here: https://www.ergon-bike.com/us/en/sho...ry/spare-parts

    You could try the Ergon GA1 grips and mount the bar end to that grip. It's much more round of a grip than the others.
