Cane Creek Ergo Control II Bar Ends

Has anyone here used the Ergo Control II bar ends? How are they? I'm thinking of putting a pair on my XC bike so any opinions would be useful.

Thanks in advance.

My feeling is that they are good for an extra hand position and to get you that outside-grip but they don't really allow you to stretch out because they don't extend very far forwards.

Thats what kept me away from them. But i believe PWRDbyTRD is using them now and he is very happy with them. I guess its preference, i like the Ritchey WCS because they extend

Very comfy, plus the built in ODI collar is a nice benefit.

But I agree with khuon, I need bar ends to get in front of my handlebars and move my center of gravity forward and lower. For that purpose, the Ergos don't quite cut it for me.

Love em, you're right, they don't "stretch" you out, over the front wheel, but they open up my rib cage like none other and allow me to climb much better than I could before. I really prefer the position for climbing, but it is preference, if you get them, run them with ODIs since they make a flush setup. Here is a pic.
