I need a how to. I just bought some bar ends and would like to avoid cutting the grips if possible. Does anyone have any slick install tips or instructions?
I always cut the grips. Best way I know of. Other than that slide your brake levers and shifters in then slide your grips over.
i donno any other way than cutting the grips.
Yeah i would advise cutting the grips, or you might find your hands will be too close to the middle of the bar.
Cut the grips for sure, 1/4 inch off the end and remember that it doesn't take 60 foot pounds of torque to keep the barends in place.

Rico, those look like interesting bar ends, do you have a pic that shows them better. Just saw your bike and then the ends. I don't have a MTB yet, but you have the 4300 which is one of the bikes I was looking at.:beer:
