Handlebar End Rework - 3/3/2001

Prev | Next

I didn't like the way the bar end adaptor bulged. It was a thicker diameter than the handlebar itself and felt funny when you gripped the handlebar. And since I like doing things over and over again, I decided to remake the handlebar end adapters, this time with a tube that fits into the handlebar end rather than over it.

The grip and bar end shifter before the rework. You can barely see the bulge by the 4th grip bump from the left on the top of the grip.

The new bar end adapter.

The new adapter mounted on the handlebar.

The completed assembly. No bulge now.
