Gel Grips
« on: Jun 10, 2008, 23:13:16 »
I picked up a new set of grips for my bike when I changed the bars.  I thought it might be nice to have set of gel grips.  Worst idea ever.  I much prefer something more rigid...not something that feels like it's sliding around.  Not to mention they make your hands smell like you were petting a skunk.

I prefer the classic Gran Turismo grips. They are comfortable and repros are available from Emgo.

Yep, that's what I'm thinking.  Think anyone local will have them?  Cycleworld/Superstore will have them...but that's way out in Scarb.

I picked up a pair of the emgo ones.  But they've already ripped.  I think I buggered it up when I was trying to squeeze it over my throttle side. 

Check to see if cyclewerk has the turismo ones.

Aw man...

The trick to remove or put on grips is to use a can of compressed air...
you just insert the straw with the grip, squeeze the can and the grip basically slips right in place...

You coming out tonight?

I heard of this compressed air trick...but I didn't have one and wanted to go out for a ride.  So I just smashed it on there.  I f*cked up big time. 

Ya, I'm coming out tonight.  My bike isn't great right now...kinda halfway through a few things...but I'll be there.  Are we going to do the Princess Gates meet up at 8?

There (Emgo) is your problem.  I am using Pro Grip dual density gel grips on my bike for 15,000 miles and LOVE them.  They are firm but not hard.  Hairspray is a good trick to get them on too.
