dang i'm too gripped on the S.

few grips get more stylish than this, and offer the ridiculous grip and control that these have. only gripe (haha) is that they aren't lock-on. you should see the detailing... little s's at the intersections of the nice chunky, grippy rubber.







VERY satisfied.

haha i actually tore down my bike in preparation for my new frame, hence the lack of cables. and why the bars aren't attached to oh, a 30 pound contraption of welded metal tubes.

Yes, but what grips have a cooler name than the Kona Jack $hit$ ?

I'm pretty happy with mine, but I kind of wish they were lock-ons.

I've been using Specialized Durangos on my bikes. I really like them, and they're cheap, so when they wear out, I can get another pair for about 5 bucks. Grippy and I've never gotten sore hands or bad blisters like I have with other grips.

Lock on? What is this 'lock on' of which you speak? These MTB terminologies are so alien.

They came stock on my bike, the enduros. Very happy with them also.

Lock-on's? Pfft, unless you change grips often, i dont see the point.

I love the Ritchey grips with the raised center.. everyone who gets on my bike hates them though..
Cheap and great grip, they work great with gloves with the pads on each side and not too bad bare handed.

+1 for the Ruffian. Every other grip I've had twists on the bars. Yeti and Pedros are the worst for that.
