When I started mountain biking, bar ends were a thing. Alongside prodigious anodizing and long stems. Perhaps bar ends were there to counteract the long stem, show off the anodizing and somehow add to the mystery of early geometry. But, when was the last time you saw a set bolted to a set of bars, other than on a bike that’s had them on since it was first made? How is it then that you can still purchase some… from a selection?
