Need info on handlebar ends for Giant Escape 1..

Hey guys...I'm looking into getting handle bar ends for my Giant Escape 1, I think I'll want another option to have my hands when I'm riding, and I think I'll like having the neutral option as well as the regular flat bar option....

So would this be a good option to add to my bike? Anyone have experience with handlbar ends? And where online can I find them, and which ones would be compatible with my Giant Escape 1...Thanks for reading guys

Bar ends are universal for the most part.
Amazon sells a few of them.

I was hoping to find Giant bar ends, but not having much luck....And I'm wondering how easy it would be to install after market bar ends, like the Origin8's in the Amazon link...

Bar ends are super easy. You can probably buy GIANT bar ends directly from Giant.

I just ordered this grip!

Ergon GC2 Race Grip!

This post was timely since I had decided after this mornings ride that bar ends were long overdue.

My present grips are similar, but don't have the bar ends, but the extra hand position should make it even more comfortable.

Thanks for the recommendation Jimbo....I found these on a website called Wheelworld.com...

http://wheelworld.com/product/giant-...ds-44695-1.htm

Their from Giant...Would these be compatible with the Escape 1? And is this a reputable site to order from?

I love the Ergons too. I got the GC3's. They're pricey... but I think they're worth it. Here's a pretty good price on Amazon:
