    I did until recently. Cheap Tioga ones from CRC did the job.

    Old pair of Spesh ones, cut down to half length and buffed off with wire brush for plain alu bling

    Ergon GP3 for me on my xc hardtail. Not on my full suss though.

    I like them but think my bars are a little bit too wide (700mm). Should probably cut them down a bit as the position feels a bit unnatural and stretched.

    Spesh ones on my flat bar road bike

    Cane Creek Ergo ones on my Solaris, they’re very good

    Bar ends are handy for when you need to do an emergency bit of shopping bag hanging

    Had some Giant similar to Cane creek until they hooked up on a tree and flung me into another tree, nasty.

    I’ve taken them off…..blame Strava and tight single track!

    They are for sale if anybody is interested plus have some stuby Ergon’s which are magnesium

    There’s a lot of hate for barends on here I’ve found but I have them on my bike and I love them. Great choice of positions for general riding and boosting uphill. One of the other great advantages I’ve found is when you have a mechanical and you have to flip the bike over it’s not resting on your brakes or shifters and only the bar ends get scraped.

    I was the only one I saw with bar ends at BPW earlier this year

    (Was also on a hardtail with mudguards and (empty) bottle cages for further niche value

    Tomac stubbies from yonks ago and a pair of decathlon ergo type. These are sold under a few names. Like both tbh, the Tomacs work better with the Fleegles I have on that bike.

    Cane Creek Ergo were amazing on my SS. Now I just have some lovely old Onza Ski-bends on my commuter.

    I think I’ll go with cane creeks again. Although I’ll look at the giants. If anyone wants to sell me some I’d be interested. I’ll be going from 780mm bars to 750 with bar ends. I think it will be roughly the same.

    cane creek (had some very angled ritchey ones on some daft on-one bar for a while, too)
