    I recently purchased these of a popular auction website and they work very well if a little short on the quality side.

    Does anyone know where I could purchase in the above style?
    as I find my hanlebars are small enough without loosing an inch.

    I'm afraid I don't quite follow you, old boy. What is it you want to purchase, exactly?

    He wants bar ends with an internal mechanism - unlike most of the current ones where you have to lose some bar space.

    I haven't seen any in a long time.

    Cheaper to buy some wider bars and some new bar ends. Decent bar can be bought for a tenner EG Easton EA30

    Yes exactly it :wacko:
    The ones pictured are ok but feel cheap and cant see them lasting that long.
    So I've stuck them on me old mountain bike to use as a tester.

    Does anyone know where I too can get some internal fitting bar ends? I've tried the popular auction site.

    Thanks for the advice but I want to keep my current bars and just put the bar ends on now and then.

    Does anyone else know where I might get them? New or secondhand?

    Eventually got the bar ends. Not bad: 7 months after ordering them.

    They are supplied with sleeves. Unfortunately the sleeve diameter is too big for my bars and if I don't use the sleeves then the bar ends don't grip. I've put some sandpaper in the bars instead of the sleeve as a temporary solution. Anyone got any better ideas?
