I'm putting the finishes to my *cough* modern *cough* bike and was wondering if I could ask for some help with the details. For what it's worth, it's a fully rigid bike that'll be eligible for posting here in about 10 years!

I have an IBIS titanium bar with ti-onza bar-ends mounted and need some end caps for both bar-ends and handlebar.

Ideally, I'd like some B.E.R.T.s that come with bontrager/titec ti-handlebars for my handlebars. Obviously these must be hard to come by without buying the bars themselves. Any suggestions?

As for the bar ends - anyone got any onza replacements for sale?

Fancy carbon end-plugs would also be an option if anyone knows where I can get some....

Many thanks in advance for any help.

I usually shorten my bars and found that if they are light weight ones you can use the cut offs as Berts.
All you have to do is remove a section so they fold inside of the bars they are protecting.

Thanks but it was the aesthetic appeal of the machined BERTs that I was after (structurally, the IBIS bar is thick enough to cope with the barends).

Cheers.
