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)

I've totally seen those at the LBS less than a mile from my house. Used them on two sets of bars, but I can't recall the brand. I'll check tomorrow (Sunday) if nobody else knows.

They might also be the Origin8 track grips - http://spicercycles.com/itemdetails.cfm?id=430 . Super cheap.

Those are the origin8 grips. The nice thing about them is that you don't have to cut off the ends of them to slide them all the way up onto the bars if you are riding them at the top of drops or bulls. they come with a plastic plug. I haven't ridden them because I have a set of the Soma version that Ive moved from bar to bar and I my hands like that grip pattern even without gloves.

They kind of look like my Dimensions. $7 for a pair, friendly to my hands.

It's nice to see someone else running track grips on pursuit bars like I am
