Singlespeed & Fixed Gear "I still feel that variable gears are only for people over forty-five. Isn't it better to triumph by the strength of your muscles than by the artifice of a derailer? We are getting soft...As for me, give me a fixed gear!"-- Henri Desgrange (31 January 1865 - 16 August 1940)

... so when you mount your oury grips...

where do you orient the "OURY" printing on the grips?

when you leave your bike sitting on the floor in your living room, which way do you orient your pedals? do you make sure that they are vertical, so you can stare at your chainline better? or do you make sure they are horizontal, so you can stare at your downtube?

plz help

i just tossed mine on with the label pointing down, but when they kept slipping i rode up to the bike shop to use some compressed air and light oil to help seal em, and my buddy who gave me a helping hand got all anal and lined em up so that the "oury" faces outward. no big deal.

yeah, i do pay attention to my cranks when my bike is in my sunroom... horizontal, left back. the walls are wavey and uneven in there, so the pedal touches the wall in a bubble and keeps the bike up straight.
it keeps my brooks from getting scuffed by the white paint in my house.

I just make sure that the "OURY"s on my grips are facing out, as opposed to against the bars itself.

WORST IDEA EVER FOR OURYS

go ride in the rain, and you'll see why.

use any spray adhesive, like 3M, they slip on like butter, and in ten minutes NEVER SLIP.

to remove just squirt some WD-40 down in between the bar and grip (with the red straw) and with 30 seconds of twisting, the glue breaks free and they slip off.

oury's rule because they are so thick, they work like shock absorber pads, as on roady bars, they are also comfortable with or without gloves.

I won't ride with any other grip now, I even put them on both my motorcycles.

you guys just don't know.

( I'm weird, I put the oury logo so it faces front)
