My wife rides a Trek 7.4 FX. She's been having a little tough time with uphills and is wondering whether bar end grips would help her climb with a little more ease. Some websites claim they do, but I'd like to have your feedback here.
She also feels as though those bar end grips help with a long ride by allowing her to take different positions rather than just one (as is the case with flat handlebars). I tend to agree in theory, but I totally lack experience. What do you think?
Also, are there any "cons" with bar ends, other than added weight?
Thanks in advance for your input!
