    Yeah, the foam ones are a bit naff – and they’re glued on so you need to cut them off and get scraping.

    Ergons fit, but you need to cut them down a bit because the M-type bars are quite narrow.

    Ta. Will investigate further.

    One other option that I thought might work would be using a Gripshift version of a LockOn grip, as that would be a little shorter. Anyone tried that?

    I’ve got ESI chunky on mine, mainly as a result of using them on my mtb. I think they’re brilliant grips and don’t shift around at all. Not a brompton but a folder of the cheaper variety.

    OK, so maybe it’s just because I’ve been spoilt by all the years of LockOns, but those stock Brompton grips are a bit gash, aren’t they?

    So, what’s the skinny on grips? (M type bars, BTW)

    Can you get something like an Ergon to fit? Might be a nice comfy set up for that type of riding.

    TIA.

    The diameter is right – might be a little too short, but I’ve not tried.

    I’ve got a pair of these on M bars

    Which have been ace, lock on at one end and handy groove for cutting. I did mine one “block” from the end with a Stanley knife but I’m sure you could chop ’em with a hacksaw for neatness.
