Ok. I admit it....I'm weak, spoiled and in need of constant comfort.
Yet I want to try mountain biking.
I don't like the default mountain bike handlebar grips that come on the specialized hardrock sport entry level model. I don't like not only cause it doesn't have any padding at all but the way it feels on my fingers and skin isn't good.
I got the specialized bg gel cut off gloves and their GREAT for comfort. They pad the palms just right and I can ride for hours. However, while the finger tips cut outs make it very breatheable the open fingers against the rough grips kinda hurt.
So, then I bought the specialized ridge gloves. The fingertips are great but they took out almost all the padding. GRRRRRRRRRRRRRR
So while it feels good on the grips my palms get soar and I can't ride for very long. ARGH
Ultimately the ridge gloves suck cause of that. Maybe I could cut the tips off the ridge gloves and sew em on the bg gel gloves.
Anyways, I think I found my solution......replace the grips.
Can you guys come up with some cool and very comfortable alternative grips? And in the meantime what do you guys think of these grips.........the ergon mp1 grip here is the link of the review on mtbr.com
