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.

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.

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!
