Ever been on a multi-day, multi-hour ride and found yourself palming the end of your handlebar? According to Chico, CA-based PAUL Component, your hands were looking for Chim-Chims. Ergonomic bar-ends offer another hand position and way to relieve numbness and nerve pinching on those all-day rides by allowing you to rotate and angle your wrist into different positions.
Even more interesting for us bikepackers, there’s also a secret stash compartment built into each Chim-Chim. Store that lip-balm you always wish you brought, extra cleat bolts, chain masterlinks, tire plugs, patches, or fresh herbs for seasoning your camp meal…

Why did Paul name these bar-ends after the monkey in Speedracer? You’ll have to ask him! Find more info over at PaulComp.com.
