When I was surfing on the internet at the Stott usa pages, I ran into this:
http://www.scottusa.com/product.php?UID=4902

It will cost in europe 32 euro so thats the half of the Tune bar ends. And they weigh in at 58 claimed grams.
I've ordered a pair, and will update this when i have had them on my scales!

I hope the weight is for a pair and not for a single bar end only. :wink:
The barend design looks more like 116 g for a pair to me.

Inform us about the weight when you got 'em. :)

get a pair of ritchey WCS barrends, saw off to about 2 inches, and put in new endcaps. LESS THAN 80 grams a pair, and only about $30 US i think!

Straight from the Bike Workshop. (German mag, listing loads of stuff.)

The canondale bar end and the XLC Look the same as the Scott. The price varies from 39 euro at c'dale and 19,95 at XLC.

Vertrieb = dealer
Preis = price
Gewicht = weight
Material = guess what?
Lange = length
Ergonomie = Ergonomics Gerade = straight
Sonstiges = Anything else? 3D forged, cnc 'ed, black anodized

Looks promising! :D 8)

I can confirm that the weight is for a pair. I must say they are small compared to tune. But then again, I have shortened my Tune barends too. These are shorter and thinner, but I like them. Also they are much stronger. The Tune barends are wrecked in a crash like a tin can.

They can be bought for as low as 14 euros (badged as Smica) on Ebay. These appear under so many names: Scott, Cannondale, XLC, Pro, Smica, and the list probably doesn't end here...

There is a couple of guys I know who got them. I think they ain't long enough if you like having a full hand around the bar end, I tried to grab them with my whole hand. And when I do that my indexfinger is left with nothing to grab, except a little of outer edge, too bad because they are light and cheap.
Think, type, speak... In that order...
