I wouldn't put bar ends on your bike fella , i think they can spoil the look of the bike. They can look ok on the right bike though ..onza titanium on gt's look good. Each to there own though mate ,you go for it if you fancy some :wink:

There's nowt wrong with bar ends on a DeKerf, as long as your stem is 5deg, or less, rise, and the bar ends are short, and perfectly in line with this. It'll help your climbing no end (pardon the pun), and make the bike look more puposeful.
That is the gospel according to Reub. :P
