I have a '10 Trek 7.3FX and installed GP1's yesterday after my LBS wanted a $20 labor fee for install despite purchasing the grips and bar ends from their store. Removing the grips was fairly easy. I used a very thin small screw driver, inserted partially into the grip (didn't pry up, used only to create gap between bar and grip), then poured small amount of rubbing alcohol on shaft of screw driver allowing the liquid to seep downward into the gap. I removed the screw driver, and turned the grips with relative easy until grips came off end of bar. This method did not damage the bar, or grips. Saved original grips for possible reuse.
