cork grips

just installed a flat bar on my bike and I went with cork grips.
what do you guys recomend to make them stick...they are really slippery.

Super77 would work?

by slippery, do you mean that the grips slip on the bars or that your hands slip off the grips?

I have cork grips on my flat bar, and I had to slide a section of innertube over the bar and THEN put the grips over that, because the grips were a tad too big for the bar. But they don't spin on me anymore.

I was talking about the grips slipping on the bars.
Before I went to bed last night I decided to take the leap and spray a good bit of Super77 into the grip and slipped them on the bars...just got up and went to see if it was still slippery and... ...those things are NOT coming off!!

Super77 all the way!

Super 77 is what I use. If you ever have to get them off, you'll have to cut them.

I'd rather have them on there nice and glued down then have them slippery on the bar.
I love the way they feel though...cork rocks!!
