    Help with Brompton bar ends

    Okay - I have poked around but had trouble finding photos or postings on what the limitations and options are for putting bar ends on the Brompton.

    I have had a friendly and helpful exchange with someone at Calhoun Cycles who recommended the Cane Creek Ergo II bar ends - which seem like they would be good, but are IMHO a little ugly.

    So, I am wondering if these fancy looking Forte Ergo Carbon Bar Ends would work as well.

    Can somebody who has experience with bar ends on a Brompton provide advice or recommendations to help "steer" me on this - with regard to what might work, limitations, or considerations to take into account? It would be much appreciated.

    Thanks.
    Nothing endures but change.

    I had the Cane Creek on a Dahon. Love them. They work quite well. Only problem is the left grip is already on the ground when folded and any more protrusion will be worse. Some bar ends that attach attach on the bar always eat up space on the bar so it becomes cramped some times. I think the Cane Creek version on my Dahon actually had a nub that went inside bar itself and didn't eat up space on the bar but then it would protrude more outside. The Can Creek were willling quite comfortable.

    Hi there. I've been looking into bar ends for my new S2-L. I think Profile does some that may suit with its Stubbie. Just found a link complete with a pic on an M-type...

    Having looked at the folded clearance on my S-type, I reckon these bar ends would work. Used to have an old L3 (like current M-type), and the bar ends would have been a bit tight on there.

    I use Serfas bar ends

    They're a bit akward to grip since the bar goes between but short enough so that the right bar end
    does not touch the tire when folded. Make sure the bike can still fold with the bar ends on.

    I had the Forte carbon bar ends on my Dahon and my Swift. They're comfortable and very light.
