  1. I have been using the original Ergo Control bar ends on my touring bike for about 10 years, they are finally starting to wear out after 50,000 plus kilometers.
    I was super excited to see these bar ends reissued because I am about to start a 2 year bike tour around the world.
    I received a set of the new version today and can only give them 3 stars…
    They have a different shape than the originals.
    The new ones are very squared off on the outside of the palm, unlike the originals which contoured off softly downward.
    The new finish is ok, I have to try them for a while to see if they are as comfortable and durable as the old ones.
    If you know Oury grips, then that describes the tactile feel of the old ones, sticky without being sticky if you know what I mean.
    Now for the worst part… the “universal lock system” simply means no lock system. The originals mated with locking grips which had the double lock system or you could simply put them next to any grips you happened to be using.
    The new version doesn’t have any mating lock system, so if you use grips that have a double lock, you will have to have a ring between the grip and the bar end. That is a bit disappointing.
    The new Ergo Control bar ends are still the best bar ends of this type on the market, but missing some of the great features of the originals. Too bad…

How much bar needs to be dedicated to clamp these? What's the insertion depth onto bar? thank you. Ryan asked on July 10, 2023

The Ergo Control Bar Ends require a 18mm of handlebar on each side to fit correctly.

Are these compatible to install on carbon handlebars? What torque is required? Jared Proegler asked on July 3, 2023

Yes these are compatible with both handlebars made of alloy, carbon, Ti, etc. They require 6-9Nm of torque to fix in place so just make sure you carbon handlebar is rated for this. Most should be.

Are your bar ends compatible with ODI lock on grips? Thank you. David Stecher asked on June 16, 2023

They are not 100% compatible since ODI's bar plugs click into their lock on grip but the eeBarKeeps will fit most any handlebar and will stay in place with the ODI lock on grips. They will not click into place like ODI's but they will work.

Position: Design Engineer
Year started: 2022
Best part of being a part of the Cane Creek family:  It’s very refreshing to work for a small, tight-knit company where we all share the same passions and to develop new products that make cycling better for everyone.
What you’ll find me doing on the weekends: Obviously riding bikes, but also wrenching on bikes or cars, exploring the mountains, and watching F1 races.
How I got here (at Cane Creek): Feeling pretty unfulfilled with a corporate engineering job, I happened to see that Cane Creek was hiring. I jumped at the opportunity to get my hands dirty working on the latest bike tech and was fortunate enough to be offered the position.
