Due to the fact that my age is creeping up on me, I need to do something different for a while to keep this "effing" tendonitis at bay. I usually ride bullhorns or drops w/hoods, but am finding risers a bit more comfy at the moment. I have hills on both ends of my commute (also with the tendonitis I want hand position options) so I would like to invest in some bar ends. Been looking at cane creek, serfas, etc. Like the fact that the mentioned are positioned fore and aft. Anyone have any thoughts/help for this old man? Much thank yous in advance.

Yeah! I use these (http://www.amazon.com/Ritchey-Ergo-Mountain-Bicycle-Ends/dp/B003K0CGSQ/ref=pd_sxp_grid_i_1_1). The inward curve compensates for the backward sweep on my risers. I think it's a great set-up for city riding. Comfy and nimble on the risers with room to stretch out and get leverage on the bar ends.
I've used serfas bar ends on my commuter bike for years. Do it.
