    Ergon bar end on cannondale

    Has anyone installed an ergon bar end on a cannondale CX-3?

    Ergon requires a 22.5mm diameter bar, CX-3 has a 25mm. I'm guessing it wont be a problem.

    Thanks

    they go on the end of the handlebar it has to be 7/8" that is 22.2 mm ,

    even powdercoated 7/8" bars at 22.5 mm it gets to be a tight fit

    no I dont own your same bike..

    where do you pull the 25mm number out of ? thats like the center bulge not the ends of an MTB bar..

    your measurement accuracy can be questioned, perhaps?

    show me.

    you even own the bike ?, and you cannot measure your own stuff?


    put different handle bars in if you are willing or pay the shop to do it for you if its too hard.


    Dude guess you cannot even read? 25mm is the rise offset not the diameter ..

    Standard bar ends will fit your Cannondale. All brands pretty much use the same dimensions.

    After nearly 29,000 posts, "fietsbob" apparently has no life outside the internet and can't answer a simple question.

    He has a point. aren't most handlebars 7/8?
