    Comments about Nashbar Stronghold Mountain Bike Bar Ends:

    These are great bar ends. They're angled in slightly, and the 'thumb grooves' on the top are very comfortable. Not too tall, just long enough. I use them just to move my hands around in different positions while on long rides.
    Despite being black, they don't heat up in the sun (just took them out on a 50 mile ride on a 90 degree day, and they held up great). They're still new to me, so nothing falling apart yet, but I suppose we'll see how they hold up after crashing into something.

    So far, so good - great price, and have improved the comfort on my longer rides for sure!

      This was for my wife on the crossfit bike. So far it works for her and that's all that counts. Only been installed for a couple weeks.

        Easy installation and comfortable to use. They lock on pretty well too. I just used them for a 30 Mile ride on my mountain bike and they saved my wrists. If you are looking for a good pair of bar ends, you cant go wrong with these, especially for the price.

        One cap is broken so I guess you have to buy the whole thing to just replace that part. Other then that it would be a 4 to 5 star product.

        Comments about Nashbar Stronghold Mountain Bike Bar Ends:

        I love these handle bar attachments. They fit very tight with Allen wrench screws and allow you to reposition your hands to relieve pressure to prevent hand numbing and at the same time give you complete steering control. They are great for pedaling out of the saddle. They are angled in slightly to reduce the chance of them getting caught on branches or small trees.

          Comments about Nashbar Stronghold Mountain Bike Bar Ends:

          I have a mountain bike that has rubber grips. I was able to easily trim that with a pen knife to accommodate the snug fit of these bar ends. The product angles out very slightly and is a comfortable height. Very easy to adjust, but still incredibly sturdy and won't move unintentionally. I like the plastic feel (with metal hardware) rather than completely metal as I had in the past because the grips don't get too hot or cold from the temperature outside.

            Comments about Nashbar Stronghold Mountain Bike Bar Ends:

            These bar end are extremely comfortable because of the way they are constructed. They are relatively shor and are oval with a indent for you thumb. The just make it so your hand sits perfectly at the end of the bar! I have tried more expensive name brand bar ends, but I came back to these. One caveat: the plastic end of this did break off when my bike fell , so I have to order a replacement, but it otherwise seems well constructed. The bottom line is these are very comfortable.

              I have been using these for over 5 years, and I thought I should add a short review. Not only do they still look brand new, but they are still just as strong as the day I bought them. When I originally saw the review I thought, who needs a thumb cap?! I immediately knew once i got mine in the mail, and I have never looked back.

              Seems these days, all of the companies are coming out with these tiny, pencil thick bar ends. Get these ones. They are not only comfortable right out of the box, but strong.
