- Grips and bar end advice
I have got a scale 920 and love the thing. I have come from 150mm full suss and I am embracing the XC thing At the moment and loving it.
I have just cut the bars a little and it is feeling sweeter.
Looking on t’interweb I was drawn to the Ergon grips to assist with longer rides, also quite fancy some bar ends.
Does anyone use bar ends anymore or is this like saddles and socks?
What set up including bar ends could anyone recommend ?
I notice the racers and weight weenies seem to use foam grips and not ends, is this correct?

i use the ergon gp3 grips, they have made a big difference to my cycling, no more hand pain, when doing the longer rides over 35 miles, they give you various hand positions so you can move your hands around on the grips and they lock into position, best item ive bought for a while.Posted 4 years agomaujaMember
I’d always resisted bar ends on my XC race bike as didn’t really like the look of them. However, I put a pair on for a race in the alps that featured lots of long climbs and now I wouldn’t be without them. The extra hand position really seems to help.
I went for the Mt Zoom ones from the XC Racer website, they weigh next to nothing and don’t take up much space on the barPosted 4 years ago
