- Will bar ends look crap on my Easton CNT risers?
If they have metal inserts in the end you might be able to run bar ends. Generally bar end on riser bars look pretty crap, but these days you can get pretty short things that look more like a bulge at the end of the bar… maybe you could try these things??

Another warning against bar ends on carbon…some bars are designed for it but most aint, and I’ve seen a pic or two floating round where a small crash as caused the bar end to snap leaving your bars 20mm shorter than before!
How about those oval body geometry grips by Spesh? Know a couple of people that use them and they have stopped hand pain.Posted 9 years agofbkMember
According to Easton, CNT bars are fine with bar ends and the warranty is unaffected by their use so long as you use a particular clamp type (see the easton website) – I think they’re the only manufacturer to state this mind.
As for what they look like, who cares! I ran carbon bar ends on my old CNT risers for years – worked well and looked fine (imho).
I have to say though, after damaging the bars/ends in a crash last month and replacing them with some monster-wide 09 CNT low risers, I haven’t missed them since.Posted 9 years ago
