ODI WING TIPS

Adjusting your bars without a hacksaw

It’s not uncommon for riders to use a hacksaw to trim their handlebars down to their desired width. ODI offers its Wing Tips that adapt to its Flight Control-series handlebars so riders can adjust the width without doing any permanent modifications. The Wing Tips thread into the ends of ODI handlebars and are available in 12.5- and 18-millimeter extension options. These 7075 T6 aluminum bits retail for $13 a set. odigrips.com
