    I was using these ODI attacks until a couple of years ago. i may well go back to them soon, with a little Renthal grip glue.

    Wasn’t there a (non lock on) grip in the mid 90s that was half mushroom, half waffle like that? Pretty sure I had some.

    Or you could just keep on buying the originals – http://odigrips.com/store/attack-mtb-grips

    Edit: I was a bit slow there

    I’ve got a lot of time for Sam and these look good (and great value). Just bought some grips though.
    I still use Odi Attacks on one bike, but they are a bit fat.

    Yup same here – swapped out the lock-ons that came on my gf’s bike too, she was most happy. Still the best grip I’ve used.

    I love ODI Attacks or Tomac Attacks way back in the day.

    Still have a set on my Salsa & 2 old sets which need a spot of glue on the end.

    The first set up there look like Answer Aggressors, but not as good.

    Someone else made a round end grip like the Attack, can’t remember who, thought it might be ATI.

    I do recall the original mushys from the 80’s. However I do try to avoid sam pilgrim, him riding like a bell in close proximity to pedestrians really irritates me.

    Sam is one of the nicest friendliest, most chilled-out, down-to-earth pros out there. I can understand that you don’t like that aspect, but I reckon he’s a hugely positive influence on the whole. Maybe worth saving your irritation for those much worse.

    I was poking about with some DMR Deathgrips in a shop recently and the ‘race’ version ones very much reminded me of an old mushroom grip. I’m thinking of trying some!!

    I remember the ODI mushroom grips used to arrive in Maccy D’s style packaging, the old CFC foam type burger box.

    I had lime green on my BMX

    I just got these. Looks like the pilgrips are borrowing from DMR Deathgrips? They have a waffle bit on the bottom too.

    2/3rds of the design and 2/3rds of the price. 😉

    I like the look of them. If only they came I  green.

    I’ve still got some Attacks on my old retro bike. Although the half flange ones from superstar are pretty good too for the money.

    As a side note, is renthal grip glue just rebadged super glue?

    The bottle looks very similar to superglue

    Them’s the ones 🙂

    I was an A’me Round man myself…

    I was using these ODI attacks until a couple of years ago. i may well go back to them soon, with a little Renthal grip glue.

    Got a few sets in the garage. 😎

    Come to think of it, I think there’s a few pairs of original Tomac Attacks.

    I just got some fat / soft / flanged (triple lol) Deathgrips off a guy who bought them then had his bike nicked so never got to install thrm. Bargain $20…..which led me to Googling mushroom grips actually. Quite impressed with them but not sure I’d pay full whack for them. I’ll probs try some pilgrips next.

    I got me some Pilgrips just the other day as it goes, in murdered out black. They’re really nice. I’ll be sticking them on when my Deathgrips die for a bit of a change.
