    oh. was tryin to use my fingers.
    and if bar plugs come with my bar tape, are they road bar plugs? would they fit mtb bars, or rather my bar ends?

    They should just pop out. Grab 'em with pliers and pull. Some older ones have a screw with an expander plug, you'd need to slack that of course.

    I've never had a problem with plugs not fitting any bar I've tried.

    I usually just ride my bike for a few weeks and they pop right out. Onto the road.

    I'll see your reflective bar plugs and raise you my automatic lighted bar end plugs.
