How To Raise Your Handlebars (And Make Your E-Bike More Comfortable)

I actually did see these Ergons and many others, but I needed to shift my weight back, not forward.
These other, extremely ugly bars you post🦨👎, look nothing like mine.

My extension are pointing back, towards the seat and actually allow me to lean back so far that my shoulders are behind my hips and still have a comfortable grip.

I originally thought to put a different set of handlebars on, but that would require me to re place the brake and shift cables as they were too short. Not to mention the considerable work of re mounting the grips brakes and shifters and other mounts on the bars. On the other hand my bar ends took a total of 15 min and look absolutely beautiful,🌷👍 (I have received many complements and imitators.)
The Ergons are also adjustable and tilt back. ;)

You can only adjust those Ergons to the point that the grip works,(If you noticed,the ends are locked into the grip) and the ends will work havoc with your hands, believe me, I have tried it with my one piece ends bars. Besides , even with my grips I only paid less than $24 for the whole improvement....good luck finding those Ergons for less.:cool:

SQlabs sell/mfg ‘innerbarends’, bar ends that sit inward of grips, they help in the more upright riding position, and just give a good feeling. I use stem riser, handlebars with some rise to get me there- and innerbarends help too. And they put hands in a natural position, etc, etc,etc..... lol
i rarely endorse things- but I really like these and have had them on my Stromer for years.
SQlabs are really into ergonomics and have a lot of interesting stuff to read on their website.

That's another advantage I forgot to mention...the addition of the ergonomic "tops" to my inverted bar ends not only is extremely comfortable on the hands, they also allow my hands to be in the natural thumbs forward position, I think this is the reason why when I lean into the tops, muscle tension is actually released, making riding an actual therapy for sore neck, shoulder and wrists. I will not ride without them.

Ha, I just came in from a ride, during which I decided to raise my handlebars when I got home. I did just that a couple of minutes ago. I think I will like it.
