Trying to do some more low cost WW upgrades to my 2017 CAAD12.

Tried the "search" on here for bar plugs and nothing came up. Can anyone recommend some WW bar plugs? Looking at some cork ones but wondering if you all had some more appealing options (i.e. carbon, or anything other than cork)?

Thanks!

Black plastic ones from Deda. Light and free with the bar tape.

Yep black plastic, can drill the center out of them but truly not worth the effort, sorry :shock:

Eh... The free Deda bar end plugs are lighter. I took off 1.5g drilling the centre out, it might be some effort drilling and filing it smooth but it's really rather fun. ImageImage

Cut tape flush with the bar, wrap with tape.

Lighter and you can store money and/or candy inside.

Interesting, but light choice. :)

I run a pair of black BBB BHT-96 Screw On plugs, that match my S-Works Roubaix bar-tape. Weight however is around 35 grams.
