My Bad

A few weeks ago someone started a thread about grips and one of the guys posted saying that he has to change grips quite often. I blasted him because I figured that changing grips more than like once a year was just being ********. Anyways, I was looking at my grips today, which have maybe 100 trail miles on them in the last 4 months, they are starting to wear surprisingly thin on the edges. The rubber is soft, providing great grip, but wears quick. So whoever I blasted, sorry about that, you were actually right about some grips wearing really fast.

Kinda like tires on my Ferrari.... Soft yet they stick to the road.
I could buy some Military grade rubber, but it'd defeat the purpose, huh?

Some grips wear faster than others. I prefer more durable grips, but that's me
