I've ran plastic bar ends for as long as I can remember. Nothing to fancy just the standard odi bar ends that come with the grips. but I see some people running metal bar ends. So whats the difference between metal and plastic bar ends?

Its a skatepark not a playground.

I assume the main difference is just durability. I use ODI bar ends because I don't want the metal ones to splinter up, get sharp, and cut me.

Par ends are above all. My one friend has had them for 3 or four years and they are the bomb!
Unless you have tree bars. They have bar ends that screw into the bars, which is neat.

lol I spent forever trying to find out what par ends you were talking about before you edited. I'm not sure how I feel about bar ends that screw in. I do own a set of taps but it just doesn't feel like it would work out all the great in the long haul.

The odi plugs are cheap garbage. So are the animal plastics. But the fly pc bar ends,par ends and some others last quite well. I've ran metal too and i always checked it after every ride to make sure it wasnt sharp if it was then I'd file it down. Only had to file once in like a year

I'm on the vital legit list!

I agree that they're cheap garbage, but they are cheap lol. I'll probably look into getting some metal ones soon. I keep a file handy so that should be fine.

Par ends dont tear or get sharp, also hurt alot less than metals to get hit by. Best bar end available.

Metal bar ends for the win

I second the par ends, best bar ends I've ever ridden.

For being pc, they hold up to A LOT.

I'd like to see you make a wedge design next if possible. I feel like it would be fun to make haha. I'm not a fan of open end bar ends because I fucking hate having dirt get in there but it's your bar ends lol.

I like this design a lot. Make a neat wedge design as Ohioan said. I have an idea for bar ends that are plastic but have the metal wedge part. It'd be way better than most bar ends too, idk how hard itd be.

Never had a chanve to ride trails so thats never a problem. And i was thinking about a wedge design, but i couldnt be arsed drawing it up and finding dimensions etc. I might do soon though..... Also, my material came! 7075t6 ali for hub guards. Would do it with chromoly but good ones are heat treated, and i cant do that. Plus ali is SOOO easy to machine and get a sweet finish on.
