Hi again, This time looking for hopefully anodised blue bar ends to go on the Marin. I have the original Marin silver ones (on a flat bar so no stylng issues) on so it would be nice to replace the with similar Marin ones if they exist? Or will consider anything of that shape in a nice bluey blue!

Obviously will pay via paypal and will stump up for fees.

Thanks THM

saw these but maybe a bit cheap and cheerful?

Hiya.

I've got these lying around. they're not anodised, more powder coated with a slight texture. smooth to the touch and ovalised rather than 100% round. a couple of scrapes but still fairly presentable.

By zoom iirc, these are the 'zanzibar ends' of the range. If these are up your steet i will find them (in the shed ) and take a better set of pics.

here they are. sorry, not sure where i got zoom from!? tranz-x zanzibar it is.


Nice sort of blue and lightweight. I'ts just whether or not the scuffs are too ugly :wink: I've always liked the design to protect the bars too, you just push them on as far as possible then, tighten them up. no end plugs required!
