wd40 and work it off??
wd40 and work it off??
wd40, hairspray, any lube
"The only reasons anyone should ever ride in the rain is because a) you’ve had your license to operate a motor vehicle suspended by the state. b) you’re in a bike race in which case you’re not allowed to use fenders anyway. c) you’re from Portland- in which case my main problem is with your neck beard- not your bicycle...If you need to train when it’s pissing rain- buy a trainer or one of those cheap charter flights to Mallorca."
air compressor works quite well
Sucks to your ass-mar!
if you use (Maruni) rubber cement, Bestine works wonders. It's available at most art supply stores.
also you can use a screwdriver to leverage against the grip. i usually roll them off partially like a condom and then use brute force.

Yeah, just be careful. That stuff is toxic as hell. Wear gloves.Originally Posted by sers
Plain old water has always worked fine for unglued ones for me, or ones that were stuck on with hairspray. From a spray bottle works best for me, but I've just pulled up an end and drizzled and smooshed around with success as well.
Doesn't WD40 leave an oily residue?
hair spray and air compressor .......
i jsut use rubbing alcohol. Take a butter night, dip it in the alcohol and slide it in the grip and rub the knife all the way around the bars. **** slides right off.
Jam a screwdriver under the grip and spray with Windex.
Trust me on this one ---Windex.
if you have access (bike shop, service station, buddy's house)...the compressor is the best. i've done them all. it's the easiest, fastest, and requires no sloppy liquids to clean up off the garage floor.

I prefer using chopsticks to screwdrivers because it will not scratch the hell out of your bars.
My brother broke his leg when he was younger and he used chopsticks to scratch at itches under the cast. They weren't quite long enough so he would lose them every now and then. When they cut the cast off 5-6 chopsticks fell out. It was pretty funny.Originally Posted by 1fluffhead
air compressor works great,
but when at home i sometimes use a plastic syringe to squirt soapy water/whateva way under the grip..
same idea with wd40 and the long nozzle, but a littel cleaner
Plastic syringes are handy as hell for other stuff too. I originally got one from my dentist to wash out the bloody holes where my wisdom teeth once were, and now I use it three or four times a year. It's surprising how often a tiny high pressure jet comes in handy.
hairspray and an aircompressor is the best way to go, at least thats what we do at my shop.Originally Posted by bluenote157
roll it off. usually works with ourys and moderately loose grips. start inside, and rolll baby. and lube the outside of the grip so it slides easily.
