I highly recommend this product to anyone looking to ride in a different position and add a little style to their bike. You will not regret buying them.
UPDATE (12-19-2012): I got the BRAKE LEVER ROAD ACTION ALLOY W/EXTENSION but sadly, was unable to use them. I instead took my bike to my Local Bike Shop, and had them see if they could do anything. Turns out he was able to, (as seen in the pics I put up) as well as cover them with red cork bar tape! That gives them better grip, as they seem to be a tad slippery, otherwise. I still think they're awsome; just more so now!
with your hands on the top of them at the end of the flat bar they assist with climbing and most fingers/thumbs can probably apply a light brake force from this position as well.
thus far they have been a useful accessory.
They holds up well and will not move once you install them properly onto your flat bars. Can be easily adjusted with an Allen key though if you need.
Just a slight warning: you can still use your flat bar brakes; provided you are not riding fast (downhill) or you have very good agility and control over your bike (bars). Else, a pair of road brakes levers are strongly recommended.
Since most MTBs and hybrids have either cable-disc brakes or V-brakes installed; go get yourself a pair of Tektro RL520 dropbar road levers. They work great with all your Avid BBs and Vees, and mounts on well on the Dropbar ends.
Taking off one star because they are smaller than I thought they could be and riding without brakes is scary as hell. I would like the loop to go a little lower and have a little more room when you are holding on to the highest part. People with bigger hands might find that they can only use the bottom part of the grips.
Without brakes on these things you should be careful to only use them when no cars are around, otherwise switching to the flat bar brakes, depending on your skill level and speed, you are going to have to take one hand off at a time so you and your bike don't fall over which takes a couple seconds and might be too late if you need to react quickly. One more thing, these are also not as good as real drop bars because they are further apart at the ends of your flat handlebar, real drop bars are much narrower, giving you a more aerodynamic profile. Lastly, you are going to have to probably cut some of your grips off to fit these on. On my bike, I found that 105mm of grip let me fit these a little more than halfway on. Most grips seem to be 130mm. Bottom line, biking is funner with these on. 4 and a half stars if amazon let me give a half more :).
