    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.

    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. šŸ˜‰

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

    Got a few sets in the garage. šŸ˜Ž

    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.
