Cane Creek Ergo bar ends - riser

I'm finding that on longer rides, particularly road rides that my hands are getting tired and was thinking perhaps bar ends are the answer. These look like a good idea, and reviews I've seen seem to back it up.

Has anyone used them?

The bar is a RaceFace Low riser (aluminium) I'm presuming that swapping the plastic plugs for alloy ones would be a good idea, but apart from that I should be okay?

Thanks

They came on my Trek and I think someone would have to pry them out of my dead cold hands before I would give them up :-)

In other words I really like the way they feel and the options it gives for hand comfort.

I have never had bar ends before took them off my Sequioa after I got a pair as a gift that is until the Cane Creeks have them on my Grizzly and they are great just did a two day 140 mile back road ride (well 15 miles of it was paved) and they came in very handy for being in the saddle 7 hrs a day. As PMan said they will have to pry them from my cold dead hands

Thanks folks - I'll have to see if the lbs can order a pair.

A friend did point out that he thought bar-ens on a riser-bar looked like the rider was trying to make out with a stag, but these aren't so pointy
