Does anyone have experience with bar ends on a Giant FCR3? I find on long rides my hands get numb and I would like to try bar ends. The stock bar is slightly swept back, so I'm not sure that bar ends would work out well. What bar ends have you tried and what work?

i think you have alloy bars on your bike so most bar ends should work out.
as for which ones... it all comes down to preference. a trip to your local bike shop should shed some light on what you like and dont like. try to get your hands on a few pairs to see what feels good.
OK Thanks, I'll do that. I was thinking that because of the swept back flat bar I might be needing bar ends with a special shape.
