Thinking of getting on next bike. I am used to shifter/brake combos.
Was wondering if bar ends are tricky to use, or better than brake shifters.
At first thought, I would think they make the bike less stable, as you have to move one hand off the bars to shift. Also, if you have to brake going downhill, how would you quickly change gears for the next hill ascent? I feel uncomfortable having one hand off the bars when I ride. About all I do it for is turn signalling.
Any tips for using them?
Pros and cons?
