    Does anyone know where I can get end plugs for aero bars?

    I previously used a one piece bar but i have just purchased some longer individual bars.

    I’m using them as clip on’s so won’t be adding shifters to the end, they didn’t come with end plugs and I’m a bit lost trying to find some.

    eBay / Amazon / LBS - just search "bar end plugs". About £1-3 a pair.

    They're the same size as handlebar end plugs (else the shifters wouldn't fit)

    Hi @jifdave , they are usually supplied with handlebar tape.

    But if you'd like to find me next Tuesday at the Grain 10, I've got a couple of spares you can have.
    You can even have a ride and test those aerobars.
    Cheers Keith

    Sorry I wasn’t clear enough in what I was asking.

    I have normal bar ends.
    I was looking for aero ones, Turns out my old bars had an aero plug at the rear end so have used that.

    Normal bar ends fit your aero bars. That's the point others are making.

    Do the aero ones make that much difference.I am thinking if you are not using bar end shifters surely the end plugs will not make much difference from an aero perspective It’s possible you will lose aero advantage moving your hands from the tri bars to change gear.
