Handle Bar Ends
Bar ends are an accessory to handlebars on mountain bikes. They're the stubby additions to both ends that make your handlebars appear like the horns of a bull. They have purpose for the majority of mountain bikers, while others dislike them. If you're serious about getting the most from your mountain bike, bar ends can make a difference in performance and comfort. Put some on your bike and you'll likely agree that life behind bars is pretty cool.
Bar ends work as an aid for climbing. Unlike the torso-forward position on road bikes, mountain bike geometry channels weight to the back wheel. The position aids climbing, but at the same time makes the front wheel lighter and can cause the front end of the bike to lift. Bar ends allow you to move your weight forward on the bike and lowers the center of gravity at the same time, keeping your front tire planted firmly on the ground where it belongs.
Tri-bars are designed to make you more aerodynamic. By forcing your body into a more streamlined shape, the effects of drag are reduced. Contrary to popular belief they are not just there to rest your weary arms on, although they do also come in handy for that They are suitable for cyclists and triathletes of any standard.
