Cane Creek Ergo II
It’s them and swearing that gets my SS up hillsPosted 5 years ago
Again, Ergon GP2s. SS and XC bikes.Posted 5 years ago
Cane Creek Ergo II for me as well.Posted 5 years ago
Old pair of Spesh ones, cut down to half length and buffed off with wire brush for plain alu blingPosted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years ago
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 hangingPosted 5 years ago
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 magnesiumPosted 5 years ago
I’ve got some for sale I took off a bike I rebuilt in a drawer somewhere if anyone wants some cheapos?Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years ago
Ergo IIsPosted 5 years ago
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 valuePosted 5 years ago
Small Ergons here tooPosted 5 years ago
Some proper X-Lite ones here. Red annodised.Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years ago
Cane Creek Ergo were amazing on my SS. Now I just have some lovely old Onza Ski-bends on my commuter.Posted 5 years ago
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.Posted 5 years ago
cane creek (had some very angled ritchey ones on some daft on-one bar for a while, too)Posted 5 years ago
