Not sure if I've bought a set of fakes, but I have a set of Onza aluminium barends with visible welds near the clamps. The ones I remember from BITD and indeed have only ever seen are the ones with like a bonded clamp setup.

Anyone know if this pic is of a genuine component or fake/copy? :oops:

Look like Onza Raw 110s I think:

Thanks Pete :)

Very interesting article that! I guess I can class them as genuine Onza albeit not exclusively by the looks of it, and they're not quite as retro as I really want.

It's got to be steel, welded titanium or bonded alloy when I think of Onza bar ends, bit of a purist like that!

You just articulated my feelings and now I feel cheap haha!

There's a set of NOS Onza Ti ends on the bay, but they're waaaay too pricey.

I'll fit these welded ones as they weren't very expensive, and maybe I'll swap them if I come by another "proper" set ;)

Could be Onza, clamps are similar. Anything moulded into the plastic plugs? (I can't remember if Onzas have "Onza" or a porcupine moulded in them or even if they were plain, so that may be of no help!)

Nope, just plain plastic plugs. Thanks anyway.

Looks indeed like one of the RAW series. Also available in purple/3DV.
