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)

They are just track grips that you would normally see on the drops of drop bars.

sharp mind~ thanks for the complete name~ that was useful~ but i am having trouble tracking these down~ seems like they're either being phased out... or... more of a london/europe thing~ any equivalent replacements? or will any track long grip do? let me know~

Track grips make really ****ty grips. They offer almost no padding or ... grip, for that matter. FYI.

Yeah I've got the origins on my track bars. I love 'em.

Especially for $11.

Charge is based in the UK, it wouldn't be worth it to order them. I'm sure there's a US company that makes a lime green track grip.


But I personally like good ol' fashioned lock-on grips for my riser bars.

yeah, i looked for the plunger before too.
figured they would be easier to get by now.
you're better off looking for a different brand, possibly CHAMP if you like the green

"Rumours have it that Juliet and Super Ted of charge bikes fame are working on a new collaborative project to produce the ultimate fixed wheel life form. the new being will be farmed to pilot a fixed wheel craft from its first breath.
Experts have predicted a high paced rise through the realms of fixed polo, wheelies, bar spins and the mean streets of Shoreditch. Roll up your pipelines and watch this space."
