Haha, no i dont do any pedal stuff, hell, i dont even ride pegs!
And im pretty smooth, the worst beating those pedals will see is maybe a drop into a hole at the trails.

Slams are most definitely not the biggest bars ever. The OG Solid Turnbars had the same width and backsweep, but were an inch taller.

Lock on's are a waste of money. If you install your grips properly you shouldnt have a throttle problem.

Don't waste your time. Trying to explain that simple fact to him is the equivalent of trying to tell a Catholic priest that molesting boys isn't God's will.

The pics appear as though the lock-on's have a larger diameter. I have large hands. Larger O.D. is comfortable.

yes, really. you cant go by pictures, especially since the lock ons have ribs making them look like they have a larger diameter.

Lock ons are more trouble than they are worth, IMO. I have a pair on my mountain biike, but dried dirt got into the tiny allen screw that clamps them, and when I tried to loosen it, the dirt made the wrench slip and stripped the hell out of the bolt. With regular grips, if dirt gets on the end, even if it gets inside the grip, you can just pop off the bar ends, take off the grip with WD 40, clean the bar and inside of the grip and put them back on. Not that much trouble, and you sure don't need to mess with removing any stripped screws or buying any new stuff.

Not to mention that Longnecks are longer than Martinez' grips (which are likened to being as thick as Coke cans), so if you compress a picture so that it appears to be the same length as a Martinez grip, it's obviously going to appear to be just as thick, if not thicker.
