Putting bar ends on a riser bar
Some fashionistas will tell you it is wrong, but I used bar ends on risers for a long time and found them comfortable and convenient. In fact I quite liked the anti-fashion statement it made and getting up peoples noses. A bit like wearing baggy shorts over leggings.
However, since my riding has got more ‘extreme’ (tongue in cheek) I have felt less need for them and have taken them off, but I do miss them on long climbs.Posted 8 years agoJonRMember
Riserzs & bar endz -same riderz who dont take off mudguardz for the summer, and use the foot hoops on Ron Hills…
Whilst I appreciate the acceptable level of scorn the excessive use of the letter z suggests you are a yoof and maybe a new metal fan so I’m guessing we are from different social circles. Good to get feedback though.Posted 8 years agocrispy baconMember
I have risers & bar ends but I haven’t got any Ron Hill’s tho 🙂
It may look an odd combination to some people but for the rider they are well worth the time & effort fitting them. They give you the benefit of another riding position when climbing & a lower stretched out position when descending.
