What colour grips?
I think having already fitted white cables, red discs and a white coil it matters not what colour grips you fit as your long past any chance of it looking tasteful! Go with which grips you like the most, if you think it looks good and your happy with it then that’s all that matters.Posted 5 years ago
Just sit down and have a think about WHY you’re bothering to colour coordinate. It won’#t make you any better. I’d rather be a trail demon on a crap bike getting sneering looks at the cafe (but looks of awe on the trails) than a mincer on a sacred holy grail of a bike.

Ouch. Black grips and lockrings for sure. You will be very lucky to get red lockrings that exactly match the frame, and if they don’t quite match it will look wierd. In fact in practice it is often very difficult to get any colours except black silver and white to match up exctly between different manufacturers.
BTW my wife’s new superstar excel grips turned up today. I can confirm that the superstar “baby pink” is not quite the same as hope’s pink, and also that them excel grips really are massive both in width and girth. 😯Posted 5 years agobigblackshedSubscriber
Your grips must match your other contact points. Pedals and seat. Lock rings must match the predominant colour of the other anodised parts. Easier said than done. But these are The Rules.
No discussion, no arguing. It says so in The Rules.
PS the velomanti rules are for roadies. OK for a rough guide, but then they are roadies. 😉Posted 5 years ago
