Worn out ODI Ruffians.
ESI chunky are fab.
Lock on grips - uneccesary toss sold to idiots by shysters .
Bought by people who like sovereign rings, crinkle cut chips and secretly want a curly perm.
Richey Foam Grips are all you need. Comfy and don't slip.
+1, dab of superglue (on alloy bars only, comes off with acetone) stops them creeping in allong the bars though IME.
Currently rockin' Gusset Bastard grips on the SS as they were spare, seem Ok, a little uncushioned but very grippy.
Hate specialized grips. Wore out if you just look at them, white, and gave me blisters. Everythign that could be wrong in a grip.
I bought a set of Superstar Size Zero grips for my DH bike, and loved them. Nice and thin, good length at 150mm and good solid locking collars with good bolts all for £9.
However I went to buy a second set for the trail bike and they're now out of stock until next month, can anyone recommend a similarly priced alternative or should I just wait for a month?
esi chunks here too,easier than I thought to fit,and very comfy and grippy(and under a £10)
Anything that is lock on.......forget the rest.
Really....because my wired on Renthal grips are just as secure as lock ons...and damp vibrations better than their own brand of lock ons....because theres more rubber to them as they have no inner plastic tube.
With shifters and brakes that can be removed without taking the grips off, why then should I bother with lock ons?
Does anyone use a form of lock ons for motocross btw? The answer is a big fat no, lock ons are just for lazy people.
ODI Ruffians are absolute classique - last for ages, lock on, grippy choice of colour pimpage but pricey.
Have tried the superstar efforts both thick and normal. Thick are well just that, insert grappling with extra girth joke in here. Normal are ok but they do wear out. Current ones on my PA looking in a sorry state after less than a year. But they are cheap so I guess you could lifecycle cost 3-4 superstars to 2 sets of ruffians and still come out up enough for a fish supper. Tricky to call.
