    They are just track grips that you would normally see on the drops of drop bars.
    Don't upgrade, ride up grades.

    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.
    I have a front brake, but I only use it for slowing or stopping.

    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
