ok, rolled the grips off the old bars. now i have inside-out grips. can't get em the right way round again. should i heat em up in water or something? anyone got tips?
i've never had problems doing it.. i just sort of push one end inside to start it going again and just keep pushing until it is reversed. i found that no lube or water worked best -- having a lot of friction between your finger and the rubber while you're pushing it helps a lot.

trying that. it gets about two inches down and the "end cap" part of it just sticks
maybe shoot some lube between the two surfaces that are in contact .. you just want to make sure that you can still get enough friction to push it through.
