Amazon says yes to road and no to mountain.

I have a set, road on mine.

These also flex a bit.

I was curious about what these bars looked like so I did a google image search. The first pic that comes up shows bar ends attached. Maybe the bar specs have changed at some point?

Good point. I wold hope they updated the interior diameter.

I used the bars about 3 years ago. My ultegra barcons wouldn't fit, but I found a pair on suntour shifter that squeezed

The Tiki bar has a 20.2mm ID on it. Should be compatible with most bar end
shifters.

Kind Regards

Me: my Noodles measure 20.3 I.D. and my 8 speed Shimano bar ends measure about 20mm O.D.
