Bar end plug advise.
Am looking to upgrade my bar end plugs to more suit my riding style. Was curious as to the advantage of the various styles i.e. plastic, chrome, carbon fiber. Will the carbon ones really improve my riding experience and make pedaling easier? Or are they overpriced? And what is the most durable brand? Also, how critical is the color coordination of plugs and bar tape? Could a mismatch affect my status in the cycling community? Are there any alternatives to end plugs?
