Will Bar ends work with Lock-On grips?

Will Bar ends work with Lock-On grips? I have never had either item. Was looking at the Lizard skins Lock-on grips and the Singletrack Solutions bar ends.

Yes, they will work.

You just move the grip over.

Extra note: you can get shorter lock-ons made to be used with grip shifters, if you need the extra clamping space.

Bar ends will act like lock on's so you don't need the lock's anymore.

only if you are using a barend that acts as the lockjaw (such as the cane creek ergo control 2's)

plus you still need to use the other lock...

If the bar end is on there the grip won't slip off. If your grip moves on your bar then you need to learn how to install grips. If you need to buy a product to keep your grips from moving you are an idiot. I've been installing grips for 25+ years and have yet needed anything but a handlebar and a grip to accomplish the task.

Probably, but you would think that RICO would read that the original post, where he specifically stated what bar ends he was going to run.

Rico, odi's need to have both clamps on them for them to work properly, not to mention it would be dangerous if running them with one clamp only on each grip. The flex from each grip will eventually cause the grip to come off of the other clamp.

Read the entire thread again and maybe, just maybe, you'll get it.

If he meant bar end caps (which still wouldn't eliminate the need for the inboard lock-on clamp) he would have/should have said so (typed so). His posts indicate that he's completely unfamiliar with lock-ons and once again just spewing nonsense based upon an amazing lack of experience).
hey man, just giving him the benefit of the doubt.

In case your a little confused fm all the different advice.

If you have lock on grips, you have 2 type choices of bar ends :

1. Normal clamp straight to the bar - as in the picture shown in this thread - if you use these bar ends you DEFINITELY have to lock both ends of the grip to the bar & leave enough on the end to have all of the bar clamped to the bar.

2. You can also get bar ends that are designed to be compatibale with lock on grips and actually fit on the end of the grip and clamp it in place - in this instanse you lock the inside end of the grip as normal and the bar locks the outside end of the grip - I have these - they work great and save a little space.

To be honest what ever ones you get - it is obvious once you have them in your hands..

Discussion often diverge from the original topic. That's why they're called discussions.

I hope they leave you alone. I have started scanning the threads looking for your replies. I really enjoy them.

I think the modding of the mountain bike forum should be left to those who frequent this place.

All heck didn't break loose. Someone didn't like the thread and went crying to a confused 16 year old moderator and he went on a mad, random, ineffectual censor spree.
I know I did, that when I got home from where I was, and I really didn't read the thread in full until just now.

Idiot here.

There have been many threads about the proper way to install regular, non-lock on grips, and they all involve hairspray, Windex, WD-40, air compressors, or even paint and fire. Care to share your secret?
