ok so i have this schwinn ranger (info here: http://www.target.com/gp/detail-tab-...ditionalImages) which i have no defense for...i was doing some shopping at target, wanted a bike, got a bike. done. bad decision? probably. but it's mine and i own it like i owned my first 1989 oldsmobile cutlass cierra (both equally heavy, steel rigs).
so it's a couple of years later, and i start riding longer distances, like 50 mile rides on the weekends when i'm not using this to cut the car out during the week. first i replaced the slow arse stubby tires with some cool semi-slick ones. then i got a rack. and now i actually like the bike. but anyway i dunno why i felt the need to give a history...my problem today is i got these specialized ergonomic bike grips meant for twist shift bikes, and they're too big. so the question is: can i move the grip shift itself down the handlebars a bit so i can fit these grips? or will i mess up the bike?
