    Just purchased a Cinelli pepper bar and need help finding grips!

    I'm not a fan of the oury grips, but please send your suggestions my way. I'll be running a front brake, so i need some that work with that. Thanks.

    What's wrong with Oury's? Too thick? If so, then...

    Merritt Crosscheck.

    Or maybe Odyssey Flatware Cufflinks, since they're on sale at danscomp for $7 and I'm a cheap bastard.

    I wrapped mine with bar tape just because there was so little real estate on them

    that said, you should be able to cut just about any rubber, non locking grip to make room for the brake

    You can always cut grips to make them shorter and even sandwich the caliper clamp between the separated grips.

    Bar tape baby. Goes exactly where you want it, nowhere you don't, and looks classier.

    Strong V track grips.

    Didn't you want to use a brake though?
