Bar-End Caps

Just a random question but do Road Bar End Caps come in different sizes ?? I recently picked up Ritchey Road Logic PRO handlebars and all the caps that I have don't fit ... They are just too small... So to fill up the space I just wrapped some tape around them. So searching the web I came up empty ... so I figured I ask some knowledgeable people

Actually, wrapping some tape around them is the "correct" way to make 'em fit.

I called CatEye and got some that have a wedge that opens up via a screw in the center. Cheap and works well.

Velox plugs have been doing that for eons



If you want color, there's Purely Custom

Thanks cyccommute, I never thought about pimping my bar end caps but those look pretty neat. I guess this is why I read random threads.
