DIY Bar: What mini tubes for bar ends?

Postby merl » Tue Jun 16, 2020 8:51 pm

What mini tubes are you using for bar ends? See pic of split carbon ones. Obviously they are too thin/weak, but what should I use?

Edit: I researched a bit. The tubes I was using were 9mm outer, 7mm inner pulltruded (all fibers in the same direction). This is obviously going to be prone to split. I will look for a twill fiber tube. I'm thinking 8mm, inner 4mm, but it is hard to find. Is that similar to what is used by others (SK shapes?)?

Edit again: Found some with OK EU postage: https://www.ebay.co.uk/itm/292480555583
