    Bars grips and handles ohh my!!!

    Any recomendations for a new setup for me. Right know I have some crappy dk four piece bars that were 16$ on danscomp. I believe they are 7 inch rise but not sure. I have oddysey Adam Banton grips wich are really comfy but are giving me bad caluses. I have the stock tektro handle for my rear brake. I would like to replace all three at once with my brake cables too but I have allready decided on those. I ride mostly park and street but every now and then I hit some dirt just to change. Thanks guys

    T1 BARS. I love love love them. I've ridden alot of bars before and I love the T1 bars. they are the best in my opinion. Love them. And the Primo Chad degroot grips are funny and I dont like soft thick grips.. I like just enough. Thats my set-up.

    -8" rise/25.5" wide - Medium

    -12* sweep

    -26 oz.

    I used them before.. they're really nice grips, just my personal preference is a thinner harder grip.

    They look like this, mine have a open square pattern on one half with the diamond pattern inside.
    I find them hard\ thin. I dunno, love 'em tho-.

    I think they were a little different when I used them.. anyone ever use the odysey barends... those things are AWESOME. they will never fall out of your bar if you dont want them to.. They totally rock.

    I like the mosh bar ends they are nice aluminum and I have had no problems with em'. I need to replace them they are pretty scratched up but thats normal for aluminum stuff that hits the ground.

    They sell the parts seperate I believe, collars or grips.

    redline fork lifters. they're strong enough for street, cost the same as a chromo bar, and save a little weight. i dig my DK bar ends 'cause they're simple. and since i'm old school, i like my a'me grips. they're so... grippy!
