    I cant seem to find lock ons in a google search, any idea where to look?

    no big deal if i dont get the locks ons, hairspray or varnish is a great anti slip.

    I have big hands to and no finger coordination, partial reason why i dont play an instrument. I also drilled a hole through a finger with an 1/8 in drill while drilling sheet metal, you could see the path through the finger that the drill took when we got the x-ray, i will try to get a picture of the x-ray up, stupid hands.

    Whatever lock ons the LBS happens to have it stock.

    ditto.

    besides size and type, I will never buy a non lock-on grip again.

    That's what I run, but the oury's are also awesome. Both get my vote.

    The consensus is ODI lock on. The rest is preference... rogue, ruffian, liz skins, etc.

    I like the rogue because my big fat hands prefer the larger diameter and the softness of the rubber tends to deaden vibration.

    Esi

    ESI for the win. It beats all ourys hands down it is the best grip I've ever had.

    It needs to become more well known though.

    They are truly excellent grips!

    I typically use ODI lock-on grips and like them but I've recently started feeling old so tried some Ergon grips and have to admit they are pretty nice. The Ergon grips are on my Big Dummy but I may throw them on my Turner to see how they feel XC riding.

    I have the Ergon's with the bar-end built into the clamp. Good stuff.

    The ESI grips suck at life though if you're into the gravity side of things, while they claim that the steps to get them on will work wonders, the directions are the same as every other non lock on grip and can stand the risk of slipping or twisting even when applied correctly.

    Being a slalom/4x person, I'll gladly take the weight penalty and added security of a lock on any day over some wonder non lock on.

    I put esi's on my bike and my wifes bike a while back.. mine moved around a bit until i hairsprayed them, my wifes won't budge at all though.. even while obeying the laws of gravity.. I think it has a lot to do with the surface of the bars.

    I love lock-ons but every now and then I long for the simpler days of a pair of Dohertys and some gorilla snot
