    good grips

    Recently bought some of these and wanted to recommend them as I've been suitably impressed

    Odi ruffian lock-on - very thin with no annoying ridges or flanges, suitably grippy design and rubber compound, zero flex/squish, don't move when tightened down, just what I want from grips.

    long - http://www.odigrips.com/ruffianlock-ongrip130mm.aspx
    gripshift - http://www.odigrips.com/ruffianlock-ongrips90mm.aspx

    they're grips, they do what they say on the tin, what more do you want



    edit: wow, I take some pretty poor photo's

    Don't run red lights, wear a helmet, use hand signals, get some cycle lights(front and rear) and, FFS, don't run red lights!

    Like the flange on a moto grip - - to be a 'bumper' of sorts and a hand stop (makes sense I suppose with Sunline's moto roots). Of course they had to keep it low-profile with all of small flippy-lever things going on with a bicycle. And, I suppose it wouldn't be very grip-shift-friendly.

    A new thread espousing their virtues even though they've been around for years and are popular enough to be considered the standard?

    And while you're at it, a picture of a Nicolai with a plug for gearboxes would be nice too.

    Aye, the flange seems a little low to be useful. Possibly the standard full height flange with a small cut away for paddle shifters might work better?

    Surprisingly enough, they do work as they should without being obtrusive. But then, I'm not needing to landmark my hands back after bar-spins or no-handers.
