    And your point is ???? Ok, so some one is selling a DH bike with bar end's. Whats the big deal? If the buyer does not like them they can remove them, pretty simple if you ask me. What else is there to to discuss?

    They shouldn't be there to begin with it's a DH bike, bar ends are for climbing not for descending.

    Maybe the owner found them useful for riding up the hill before going down the hill.

    Could be he was a one bike guy and used it for everything and wasn't some fat lazy ass wimp who can't ride his dh bike uphill? Besides, he doesn't list the bar ends in the ad, so obviously they're not part of the deal
