I recently returned to biking after about a 6 six year lay-off and have noticed bar ends seem to be thing off the past. Now the question is what happened? I still use mine on longer climbs and enjoy the option of moving my hand position. Am I an uncool old timer?
Also I have to say I have enjoyed the recent threads on 'what is XC riding?' 10 years ago it was XC or DH thats it. Now I don't know if I am a trail rider or xc or maybe a lightweight all mountain guy. But I know I'm not a dirtjumper, freerider or downhill guy.
So there it is my bike dates to me to the late 90's and I don't have real identity. LOL
