    Looking for new Grips

    I am looking to get a new pair of grips for my stumpy and I am wondering what peep's are using any why they like the grips they have.. As of now I have the stock Specialized thin lock on grip's, not bad but I know there are better grips out for use.

    Thanks for your thoughts..

    Sunline lock-ons not only for the obvious reasons but because they feel and work good too.

    the ruffian lock ons are popular. and i've had a pair they are super comfy. i have small hands but the extra thickness is so comfy that i can ride without gloves. HOWEVER. they get contaminated or something and they just started self-destrucing and leaving oily black crap all over my hands. didn't take a year for it to start happening either. i have a friend with the same grips and the same thing happened.

    so i can recommend a thick grip like the ruffian but not the ruffian itself.

    ^ my odi ruffians are great, but they are not a thick grip, are you thinking of the rogue? the ruffians do seem to be made of a pretty soft rubber which makes em comphy and grippy, but they seem to wear out on the faster side, I just rotate mine around until they are used up, but you can get refills and re-use the lock rings so w/e

    I have BIG hands, and I use the Rogues on my bikes. I rotate them on the bar periodically to max out the wear life.

    I ditched my worn out ritchey tvg grips for some oury lockons... They are much thicker... Still undecided if I like the thick grips. I like the end caps of the lock on grips, but I havent hit them on a tree yet.
    I only pedal uphill.

    I'm a big fan of Ergons and like Oury's as well.
