I use the Cane Creek Ergo II bar ends. The tacky rubber surface provides excellent grip. The unique shape is very comfortable. They are the best!!!

seconded. before opening the thread I was going to recommend those whatever the case. The Cane Creek ergo bars are the shiznit. And due to them jutting a bit back behind the handlebar, they also provide a nice platform for a restful hand position. Mutli-purpose, comfortable, and really cool looking.

I've got the Cane Creek's on my folder. They're relatively heavy and expensive but i love them - very comfortable!

I've used both on my mountain bike, (though not for commuting) the CC ergos' are really nice, the other ones are light and pretty useful for handling when mountain biking, but they broke off fairly easily in crashes, which was ultimately very dissapointing. The CC ergo's are the ones to go for.
