Ergon GS1 Twist Grips

Does anyone have any experience with Ergon GS1 twist grips? I have seen them online and I would like to hear opinions on them before I decide to buy them.

I have shorter Ergon grips, just not the exact GS1..
you may have to wait for feedback on the specific one you have.

the grip wont twist once you tighten the bolts.

they're just shorter since a grip shifter forms the rest of the grip width.

so make a nice cup of tea and wait ..

I got the grips today. They are far more comfortable than the grips that came on the bike. I am looking forward to my ride tomorrow morning to see how I feel after riding with them for an hour. Now that I take a closer look at what I got, I did get the GP1.

Those grips, similar to my GP1, are great. Very sturdy and comfortable. The shorter width allows you to put bar ends on without running into problems with handlebar space. I do wish mine was a cm wider. I think you'd hate them if you had large hands. I much prefer these over integrated Ergon grips/bar ends because you can put on any bar ends you want.
