Has anyone tried these post moderne micro bar ends yet - claimed 58 grams - looks like a very nice surface squeezing the (lightweight) hbars....any US sources that anyone knows of (paying $20 shipping can be done from UK but I'd prefer not to)

I just got them last week. They work great and look cool too. They weigh in 58 grams. I'll be testing them in combat this sunday at a marathon.

FYI - I got looking around for other sources for the Post Moderne bar ends when I checked the Gypzybikz website (they help sponser this site as I understand) when I noticed a bar end called XLC Superlight - spitten image of the Post Moderne (I know - likely made by the same far east shop). I'm going with the XLC's since GypzyBikz is associated with this site plus all the other Tune goodies they have which when I get my order together will offset the heavy shipping costs to the US.

The Extralite barends are lighter at 56g (I have a pair), but they are more expensive - that is, if 17 pounds is the price for a pair. Mmm, thanks for the tip...
