With the long climbs around here, I need some type of bar ends to stop hand numbness.
But...they always take an 1inch or 2 off the bars width, and I like wide-ish bars.
So..what about these weird grip/bar end thingy's, but NOT with the wider palm part etc?
Is anyone doing these at all?

I remember years ago, you could get bar ends that fitted into the inside of your bars too.
Are these made anymore, and by whom?
Yeah, I'm old, but fit!
