- Are there grips that 'extend' your bar width?
DMR Deathgrips when installed correctly add 5mm on each end. And if you don’t like having your hand over the locking collar on double clamp grips then they’re adding more like 10mm on each end, so 20mm total.
I think one of the Specialized grips adds even more, again with correct installation…Posted 3 months agoBearBackMember
Ive run inner only clamp.lock.ons at 5-10mm over the end of the bar but a clipped tree broke the plastic sleeve.
Sushi grips will add 35mm each side,but I’m skeptical about the strength aspect as I feel I ride bar heavy with my weight through the outer part of my hand.. a big compression through the fork and I’m not confident the nylon core would be anywhere near as strong as a bar.Posted 3 months agokimbersSubscriber

what’s the correct installation for a set of lock on grips? Surely you just whack them on until they hit the end of the bar then tighten up the collar(s)? Are the DMR’s different? – genuine question.
The single lock santa cruz I have get narrower internally, so you can just slide them on until there’s a bit of resistance and tighten the bolt, or you can push them on a bit harder to make the overall bar width a bit narrower.Posted 3 months ago
